15:50 Reasonably busy. I had noted Jack William's comments re the absence of this pub on Pubs & Beer and had resolved to make a visit. I got to Norwich to go on a pub crawl and saw that the Lowestoft train was loco hauled. I can't resist Class 47 haulage, so change of plan and two birds killed with one stone.

Lunchtime, busy but not crowded. I was surprised that this pub was not already on the site being just a few metres from the Railway station. Noted 6 out of 9 beers on.
