As this was my last stop on a solo pub crawl around Norwich, I was reasonably well boosted by the time I stopped in. Thankfully, I was more than coherent enough to enjoy my half pint of Chalk Hill Dreadnought (itís a mild, and not to be confused with Dreadnaught, that imperial IPA from Three Floyds). The place was fairly busy on the Tuesday evening I patronised it, but the barwoman was quick to get me my sustenance. I think the value was pretty good. The ambiance was convivial. Given this pubís proximity to the train station, itís a good spot to check out if you are crunched for time, or to take in as your last stop before catching a train. Good pub.

Visited august 2015, with beery friends. A cosy local brewpub, a short walk from the train station ( uphill ). Lots of seatings inside, as well as outside. Large bar area,, with 6 taps of their own beers ( 5 was on when we visited ). Beers served with a smile and in ok condition. Seemed very local pub, buth nice, welcoming atmosphere. Free WiFi. For sure worth another visit.

The first pub after you arrive? The last pub before you leave? Either way, itís close enough to the station that you can go there with all your luggage in tow before even going to your hotel. OK, youíll stand out a bit, as itís a bit of a local lads sports bar, but itís not an unwelcoming atmostphere. Peckish? Try the nachos with chilli - nice and hot. Oops, thatíll screw your tastebuds. Friendly staff, happy to let us build up a tab. Beers were variable - one of the four on was pretty darned tasty, even though it was just a simple bitter. Next time Iím here Iíll definitely try to pick up some more ticks.

The Coach and Horses is home to the Chalk Hill Brewery, which has been in operation since the early 1990s. Itís a short walk uphill from the station and is a double fronted, traditional pub set back slightly from the road. Inside itís light, airy and cheerful - there are lots of brightly coloured flags and sports jerseys in frames on the walls - and the furniture is chunky and rustic. The service was friendly and they had six of their own beers on tap (Last visited 3 August 2015).

Visited a few times over the years. Long established brewpub close to the station, so handy as a first or last stop if travelling to/from Norwich by train. Comfortable, with a convivial & lively atmosphere. Iíve not had a problem with the beers, although they are generally rather conservative in style & outlook. However, they seem to make the same six beers all the time and rarely (if ever?) depart from that range so, unless you particularly like the place, you can pretty much "do your work" in a single visit and not need to revisit -. they do not have any guest beers and there is nothing much of interest on the keg taps or in bottle. They do food but Iíve never eaten here. Note that, although this is clearly first & foremost a brewpub, with the brewery in the back yard, the beers do make an appearance around a few other pubs in Norwich, notably the Alexandra, where a couple are permanent.

UPDATE:
Visited again in August 2015. Theyíve now started making the odd seasonal beer. There were two Summer sesonals whe we visited but, unfortunately, one had just run out. Still six handpumps so I guess a couple of the former permanent beers have been relegated. Also Redwell Hells lager on keg. Upped the selection score a point.

Visited on a Wednesday evening. Nice brewpub thatís been around for years. A couple of new additions to the range with the mild being dropped for the summer. Large single room with space outside. Well kept beer. Staff friendly. Food looked good but didnít eat. Worth a check in to scoop the beers and handy for the station

Cosy pub with all 6 Chalk Hill beers on. Friendly service. Didnít eat. Rock music playing, but not too loud, and olympics on tv. Feels rather spacy. Clean athmosphere.

It was the closest camra suggest to our hotel so the place was always the first/last drink of the day ... I donít like too much their beers but their are not too bad at the end of the day .. Big and friendly place easy to reach from the rail station so worth to add it in your pub crawl .

A nice range of real ale brewed next door at Chalk Hill Brewery, and a few more common taps and bottles available. Staff was nice, food was very good (I really liked the Stilton & chips).
