  • Don’t miss: The National Winter Beer Festival

    If there was ever an excuse to go and drink beer in the afternoon, it’s the fact that it’s winter – dark, cold, miserable winter. But with spring now just around the corner, the timing of the National Winter Beer Festival – which opens to the public tomorrow – couldn’t be better. Just one last session of […]

  • The King of Inns

    Is it a pub, is it a restaurant, is it a hotel? It's all three...

  • Muddy eats: The Wildebeest, Stoke Holy Cross

    If you tune into BBC2’s The Great British Menu  later this year and spot Chef extraordinaire Daniel Smith on the screen representing The Ingham Swan, marvel at this fact: Daniel is also head honcho at The Wildebeest in Stoke Holy Cross, bringing true the metaphor of wearing two hats (unless he transports his white chef’s hat between the two establishments, that […]

      • Revamp for The Black Horse

        It’s always a pleasure to join the buzz when a tired, old – and frankly rough – pub gets revamped, attracts a new crowd and generally causes some local excitement. Located in one of Norwich’s most popular areas, and sitting smugly in an oversized handsome redbrick Victorian (with a car park and a large beer […]
