17:00 Post theatre drink. Quietest pub on our way back to the car park. Sat by the distillery listening to Yes 90125. Only problem was the smokers leaving the door open every time they went into the yard to indulge. Recommended a couple of Zappa albums to the music loving barman. Job done.

14:30 Came in to have a look at the distillery. The pub was quiet, and luckily the distiller was on hand, and he took the time to explain the process, the ingredients, and the future for the product. Very interesting.

19:30 My first visit since the latest makeover. Too modern for my tastes. Chat with barman about the beer choice revealed that the best selling cask beer is the first handpump that customers see as they enter the pub.

Website.

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

Street corner pub that has expended into the adjacent building. Formerly a slightly scruffy eclectic interior with odd bits and bobs including a full size signpost. Renovated in 2011 into a modern trendy interior. Has been renovated again in 2015. Owned by Greene King but leased to Redwell pub so has interesting guest beers. An unusual feature is a fridge full of glasses. A miniature distillery has been built to the rear of the left hand room and the product will be on sale at the pub.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 17 different beers and tried 5 of them.
