King's Head A pleasant bar in a residential hotel, plainly decorated in modern style and serving decent real ales from Greene King.
Last visited September 2009.
Norwich Street / Cowper Road
Wetherspoon's Troll Cart A large modern Wetherspoon's, unsurprisingly busy on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Last visited April 2022.
Temple Road / Regent Road
Coach and Horses One bar plus a number of side rooms with a beautiful interior including some excellent leather love-seats. A little dark inside. The menu looks good. Greene King Abbot and IPA on hand pump.
Last visited March 1999.
82 Thorpe Road
Compleat Angler Entirely fake, I think, but rather good antiquey decor in this pub in a prime location across the river from the station. About ten handpumps offering a wide range of quality real ales, local and not. Busy on a Saturday afternoon, with visitors and locals..
Last visited May 2018.
Prince Of Wales Road / Recorder Road
Gatehouse A very nice wood panelled and half timbered interior to this popular pub. The lounge is served from a small hatch at the end of the bar, and there is also a conservatory to the rear. Live music Saturday. Hand pulled Tolly Original and Greene King IPA.

Dereham Road / Sweet Briar Road
Jubilee Nine or ten handpumps in this splendid multi-room back street pub. Surprisingly quiet on a Saturday afternoon, but ticking over gently. Most of the beers on offer were local, I had an excellent porter from Wolf at Attleborough.

St. Leonards Road / Florence Road
Nelson Hotel The two bars in this posh hotel claim to serve real ale but this would appear to be untrue.
Last visited March 1999.
Prince Of Wales Road
Rib of Beef A very pleasant two bar pub by the river serving Boddingtons, London Pride and a wide range of guest beers I've never heard of, all those sampled being in excellent condition. The menu looks good.
Last visited March 1999.
Wensum Street
Wetherspoon's Queen Of The Iceni A large open modern 'spoons in a modern "entertainment" complex. Packed on a Saturday afternoon (Aren't they all?) - I had to stand.
Last visited May 2018.
Riverside Complex
Lifeboat This food-oriented pub is divided into two halves - a posh restaurant with pleasant modern decor, and a friendly bar side more traditionally decorated. The food is excellent and good quality real ales are served. The accommodation was being refurbished when I visited.

Cross Keys Greene King and others brews are on hand pump in this multi-area gastro-pub. The ceiling beams and wood panelling are all fake, I think, or did the recent paint job fool me? The school-hall-style parquet flooring is real enough, anyway. Spot the bottles cemented into the brickwork. The up market menu looks good. Closed during the afternoon.
Last visited September 2009.
Market Street / Fairland Street
