My first visit since the previous Landlord left. Greatly changed. Redecorated in pastel shades more appropriate for an ice cream kiosk. The beer choice much reduced. No longer a range of local micros but the usual national blands.

14:30 My wife went to play on the Penny Falls and told me to wait in the pub. What a hardship. Steady trade with refugees from the NNR beer fest at the station.

15:00 A drink after a walk by the sea and a visit to the amusement arcade. Four others in. A sign outside says only Norfolk Real ales. Adnams and Greene King free zone. Excellent.

18:00 After a ride in the Quad-arts on the NNR we went for the train to Norwich only to find it had been cancelled following a bird strike at 11:30 in the morning. No fitter available for repair, no spare unit, no replacement bus. Pathetic. Pub only option.
