The sir Garnet



The Sir Garnet is one of Norwich’s finest pubs, serving a variety of hand picked local ales, a wide array of spirits, lagers and locally sourced food

We are situated in the heart of Norwich, adjacent to the famous Norwich Market and a stones throw from City Hall and Gentleman’s Walk. 

The building itself is steeped in history, dating back to medieval times and first opening its doors as a public house in 1861. 

Today, after major refurbishment in 2012, it is a favourite for locals and visitors to Norwich and is completely dog friendly. Not only is there fine food and drink, but also fantastic views across the City.


Come for the drink…


Our small but perfectly formed bar offers a hand-picked selection of real ales, lagers, bottled beers, wines, gins, whiskies and soft drinks.

We pride ourselves on our range of locally sourced drinks. From the coffee which comes freshly roasted from the market next door to the 3 regional ales on rotation.

Come and join us for a drink, we are open until midnight during the week and we have a late licence until 2 am on the weekend.

…Stay for the food


Our menu brings you a refreshing take on traditional pub food with various gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options.

As far as possible the ingredients are sourced straight from the Market as well as through other local producers.

Come and join us if you fancy a lunchtime snack, delicious dinner or just one of our famous sausage rolls!


Norfolk is well known for being a hub for both pubs and breweries. What is less well known is that this is due in part to Norfolk harbouring the perfect conditions for growing malt barley – a coupling of balanced soil and salty sea air.

From this the county has gained a passion for real ales and to those that know us at the Sir Garnet, it will come as no surprise that we strive to embody that passion. 

We are one of the official pubs of the Norwich City of Ale festival and can be found on the Unthank trail.

We like to keep our ales close to home so our three ale pumps are dedicated to local breweries and we rotate them round each week to keep things fresh.
