We went here today 17th August 2017 at 5,30pm for my 50th birthday meal with my wife and was hoping for a nice peaceful meal, well that was the plan anyway, well that went belly up 2 minutes after sitting down, my wife was trying to talk to me but I could hear her over the noise from screaming uncontrolled kids further down the restaurant, their parents were obviously totally oblivious to their kids making any such noise, restaurants are for eating in not a playground for every unruly kid. totally ruined my birthday meal. might as well had my meal in the school dining hall it would of been a lot quieter.

I really enjoyed my steak meal in this pub, I really like that I could pick everything I wanted separately and was also able to add extras. wonderful atmosphere very relaxing

When I lived in Norwich, I used to visit here often, and recently came back to see if it is still as good. The carvery is awesome, with three main roasts (you can have a bit of all three if you want), and a sumptuous array of vegetables, Yorkshire puds, stuffing, etc.

There is also a tasty menu available, with good meals and desserts, etc. However, for me it has to be the Carvery every time. My only worry is that I can't help myself and have too much for the good of my waistline.

After finishing work i decided to head to the pub to watch the football as the season had just started. After spending a few nice summers days enjoying the beer garden and some pub grub earlier in the summer and after seeing several advertisements that the pub does indeed show sport i selected this venue to watch the late kickoff game for the begining of the championship season. I walked in to discover the news on instead of the football.No problem i thought thats not uncommon so i ordered some drinks and kindly requested if they could put the football on Only to be told they didnt show sport in the pub!!! strange i thought as i had just walked past 3 rather obvious signs that stated otherwise.She must be new i thought and i asked another member of staff who shrugged at me walked in the back for 2 seconds and stood by a lady who had either just come back from the school run or was a very busy(talking to regulars) manager.
I went and sat at a table that had watch all sport here and all the big sport shown here whilst staff members gestured towards my table. After finishing my drink and not wanting to disurb the bar staff from the conversation to make my request again i left and went to another pub that advertised they showed sports and here's the kicker... they actually did.
