12:15 Met up with Norwich CAMRA for their inaugural weekday lunchtime crawl. The branch has had a monthly First Friday Five evening crawl for many years but this is not very convenient for those members living some way from the city. Obviously a good idea as there was a good turnout.

12:30 Pre theatre lunch. Norwich had a lunch time match so the pub was half empty. A remarkable difference to my last visit. Although not helped by the central part of the pub being off-limits with water dripping through the light fittings in the area between the bars.

12:50 After a morning spent buying bits and pieces around the city centre we came here for lunch. Very busy indeed. Another customer told me that when Norwich are at home you have to be here by 12:00 to guarantee getting a table.

19:30 Evening meal after enjoying the annual carol service at the nearby cathedral. The pub was surprisingly quiet, most other pubs and bars we passed were wedged.
