What our members say about The Red Lion Norwich

Excellent pub food, freshly prepared, always friendly

Linda B.

The Gourmet Card listing tempted us to this pub located on the river in Norwich not on our usual beat unless doing the river walk. In fact it is a great location looking out at a historic bridge. We had excellent house special burgers with hand cut chips and a small portion of home made coleslaw. Delicious, fulfilling and all obviously "made from scratch", definitely not mass produced chain restaurant food. Not yet tried but looking forward to the pizzas and sunday lunch at this friendly establishment...and good beer too!
