The most amazing pickled onions! Great selection of local beers and for those who dont quite get it they do lock ins! Often till the early hours in the morning! The beer is incredibly well kept and it gives you the trad uk pub experience!
Some of the local bitters take a life of their own here. If that doesnt take your fancy try one of the belgium or german bottles or take a walk down the road to the plasters!
Nice old fashioned British pub with a solid range of cask ale. Not that crowded either when visited on a Saturday evening. The do also have a fine bottle selection. Some powerful Belgian stuff. It might help you when you are a bit bored with flat golden ales. Nice helpful staff. Not exactly in the city centre, but not very far either. Probably about 20 min walk from the train station. Absolutely well worth a visit. Good range of local beer
A freehouse with two entrances, two bars and two rooms with furniture mostly in solid wood. Good selection of cask ales by hand pumps, many of the from regional breweries. The cask menu is supported by a few interesting Belgian bottled beers. A down to earth pub with a friendly service and atmosphere - and local feel early on a Saturday eve. (Visited with Cunningham, Grumbo, Saxo, Camons and Rasmus40, 18.02.2017).

A very traditional ale house, situated a little outside the centre but well worth visiting. Very good range of mainly very local beers. Friendly service, good prices. Always on the list of places to visit when I go to Norwich. Can get very busy due to it's popularity, but quite spacious especially in the back bar.
This bar is split in two with the bigger one in the back. Cozy place. The service was okay although she did bring us a wrong beer. The selection of cask ales is good and local. Good conditioning.

Nice traditionel pub. Small room in front in the front of the bar and an other larger in the back. Loads of wood, floors, tables etc, pretty spacy even though a good number of people on a saturday night. About 10 casks with a varity of locals, most nice and in fairly good condition. Some bottles to, mostly belgians. Good service and prices.

I visited here Thursday 19th January 2017, I came here after Fat Cat Brewery Tap and the Plasters Arms both stupendous places, so they were always going to be a hard act’s to follow. But let’s put them places to one side and concentrate on this place, I like it, I like it a lot. From the outside it is a fairly non descript place, it’s located just north of the centre but also still quite close to the centre of town.
I entered into the front bar, it was dead apart from me and one elderly guy who was making some unusual throaty near death type noises and yet when we both chatted he sounded perfectly fine. All the while I could hear chatter out in what seemed like a backroom. As the front bar was as dead as a Dodo, I headed out back for the excitement of the back room. Compared to everywhere else today it was fair buzzing, but I have come to the stark realisation that the Norwich pub scene on a Thursday lunchtime is positively morgue like.
Out back I heard a cockerneee’ type bloke, I had an image of him and was spot on, so typically he looked a bit Bulldog like (didn’t see if he had loads of chain around his neck) anyway he sounded a really nice chap, he was chatting about mobile phones, a young girl’ early twenties was talking to an older chap (dad perhaps?) and her friend about how next month she has to pay her Xbox live and also PlayStation Live accounts DD £40 each!!!! its a different world. Anyway back to the pub and out back, lots of wood (flooring, tables etc) simply furnished it’s a large rectangular room, much bigger than I expected. I liked it here, as Mike Scott (Waterboys) once sang ’Old England is Dying’ he’s right and he’s been right for a long while and sadly it’s pubs like these that will be lost. Oops nearly forgot to mention the beer, it is all cask but nice choice that focuses on local stuff, my beer was in great nick.
This pub is a slightly hard act to follow after the Plasterers up the road, but certainly worth a visit in its own right. No craft keg but there’s a decent cask ale selection, and the bottled beer selection - although they tend toward the readily available Belgians - holds some interest. It’s got a good vibe, friendly service, cheap prices and (on my visit) spicy potatoes which can either be viewed as extreme palate cleansers or taste-killers.
We visited The King’s Head on a busy Saturday evening. It is a traditional multi-room boozer with plenty of nooks and crannies to do you’re drinking in. They offer a nice selection of cask ales and ciders, as well as a solid selection of Belgian & German classics in bottles. We opted for some tasty cask cider and some Orval (hard to resist for the price). Service was friendly and the overall atmosphere jovial. Well worth a visit.
Visited on 22nd July 2016. Real old traditional pub with two rooms and a central bar. 8 beers on cask plus a mix of German and Belgian bottles. Lovely feel to the place. Wooden benches provide seating along the windows and a nice old fireplace in the front room.
Good range of local cask beers well looked after. Prices good. Service decent. Worth a visit.
