Not sure I would have come in here had I read Mr Croxford’s most recent review, but I hadn’t (or at least I had forgotten about it). I thought it was a rather nice pub actually. The weather was good enough for a pork pie and pint lunch at an outside table.
Ole Slewfoot - Citraville3.90ExcellentGolden and Citra-filled.
Lacons - Extra Stout4.50Not Tried

19:00 Ordered a pint of Lacons Encore. It was as cloudy as soup. I asked to exchange it and then the argument started. "It's fresh on", "It's supposed to look like that", "It's from a new local brewery you may not be familiar with it". I told him I had been round the brewery and met the brewer but that cut no ice. It was getting quite heated before he gave in and gave me a different pint. I would have demanded a refund and walked out but my wife had got her drink. Luckily Norwich is blessed with a choice of good pubs so I won't need to darken these doors again.
