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.

See below some of the local breweries we’ve had on in the past.
