The pub closed on January 28 after its old owners, Kate and Dan Searle, found business “unworkable”.

The new landlady is Lou Wilding, who has moved with her team of staff from The Wildman on Bedford Street, Norwich.

Ms Wilding said: “We will have pool, darts, board games and free wifi, but we will also be hosting lots of live music.”

The music will start this Friday at 9pm with Norwich band 4D Jones, followed by “good time” Americana collective Swamptruck from Cambridge on Saturday.

Ms Wilding said she is “especially excited” to host Norfolk eight-piece The Vagaband for their third album launch on March 17.

The pub is open 5pm till 10pm, Tuesday to Thursday, and is open all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
