Jubilee - Credit: Archant Norfolk

The Norfolk Chronicle & Norwich Gazette shows that on 26 August 1886 a provisional licence was granted for a new house to be built between St Leonard's Road and Florence Road.

On 9 August 1887 the order was declared final and the licences from the Anchor, St Swithins and New Brewery, Pockthorpe were cancelled for the Jubilee. From 1982 to 1986 it was called Hanover House, subsequently reverting to the Jubilee. The Jubilee is a small but perfectly formed good-looking pub and was originally a Bullards House. It was named in honour of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, with a fascinating plaque above the door naming the countries in her empire. The Jubilee pub has a very traditional feel to it and also a great atmosphere offering a front bar with tables. The front bar leads through to a longer bar with a relaxing conservatory where there are games on offer such as Scrabble & Chess etc. Out of the conservatory is the well-kept garden which is a real suntrap in the summer.
