Busy. Advertised outside that it had a big screen. Golly. The pub was pleasant but the brewing is a work in progress I'd say.

St Andrews Brewhouse - Wensum Ale3.80PoorHazy. Sickly bitter
St Andrews Brewhouse - Grocers Ghost Pale Ale4.20PoorBit hazy but robust. Hops aren't bad but the alcohol comes through far too much.

15:45 First visit for my chum. Crowded in the bar side but the dining area was empty. The brewer was working on the kit. A familiar face but try as I might I can't remember where I have seen him before.

18:00 Prior to having an anniversary meal we came here for a drink, and to see what the renamed pub was like. Packed. Walking to and from the restaurant later every other pub we passed was relatively quiet. New kid on the block syndrome.

Website.

The pub is found in Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 4TP.

Formerly Delaneys, an Irish themed pub, the pub has undergoing a total renovation. The ground floor is now divided into a bar area at the front, with a lower dining area at the rear. The former upstairs drinking area is now two function rooms. A 4.5 barrel brewery has been installed to the left of the bar and currently produces three cask beers and one keg. Decoration is a mix of industrial chic and faded Parisian bar. As evinced by the exposed lighting metal conduits and the distressed painted bar counter. A 10% CAMRA discount is offered on the house beers including the keg and its own brand cider.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 12 different beers and tried 5 of them.
