    Friendly welcome and a comfortable environment. Decent range of beers at realistic prices, with some tempting bottles and cans as well. Not keen on allowing seating that blocks the view of the available beers (fortunately mostly a thing of the past), but the pub has the beer list on Untappd so that sufficed me. Didn't have food, but looked like some interesting options

    Had loaded fries and sampled the flights of local ales, superb. Excellent value and we escaped the rain during the thunder and lightning storm. Very pleasant staff and great atmosphere as locals arrived.

    We went around lunch time and ordered some burgers. DELICIOUS! I highly recommend any burger on the menu. You might get a little messy. Luckily, they have a nice and clean bathroom located downstairs to clean up in. I faulted a star for the staff. Upon entering the establishment, a woman at the bar just smiled and said “hi”. I was a little lost since there were reservation notes on almost every table. I asked if we just pick any table to sit at and she said yes or you can order at the bar and sit. So I stood at the bar and asked for a menu, the same woman said I needed to sit at a table in order to see the menu.. then go back to the bar to order. We found a cute table near a window view of the river. Once we got the menu’s, I asked “so are you a waitress or do we need to order at the bar and she looked confused and said order with me (the waitress)… okay. It would have been much better to have been greeted and told directly “choose any table with no reservation on it or a time that is later and then someone will come to serve you.” Instead I was left scrambling to understand how to order anything! Haha Also, you must pay for any additional sauces like ketchup, mayonnaise, etc for your chips (50p). I thought that was a little ridiculous just for something to dip some chips in casually. I’ve never seen that before at a sit down restaurant. Anyways, the joint is really clean and cute with a wonderful view and delicious food. I will be back!

    Really decent food. Reasonably priced. I just wish they had a proper drinks menu available as it's table service. Would have made ordering more drinks easier.

    Lovely pub, with many real ales and European beers on tap. Not forgetting craft cans and draft beers available. Seen many a live band here, one for the family as well as your mates. A true Norwich institution.
