In the heart of Norwich City Centre, the traditional family owned and run FreeHouse dates back to 1530.

Trading as The Gardeners Arms since at least 1841, it gained the gruesome nick-name of The Murderers, following events of May 1895, when the landlady’s daughter was murdered by her estranged husband.

Today, this multi award winning pub welcomes well behaved dogs / owners, in this historic building.

We look forward to seeing you!

As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

    AMAZING! I was only there for a few hours to watch a couple of football matches and to have a few pints. I added a meal with a Krays burger which was twice the size of my stomach (though I gave it a good go). But the food was delicious. The best part was that, whilst this pub has been updated to become a sports pub with more than 10 screens, they haven't forfeited the ambiance that its history offers. If ever in Norwich again, I will definitely stop back in!

    I had an excellent experience here. The staff were very helpful and extremely attentive. The selection of draft beers was excellent and I had a tasty lunch, in this case a curry. Highly recommended.
