A pub at the heart of Norwich's Golden Triangle has beat almost 1000 other venues to be shortlisted for an award.

The Garden House, in Pembroke Road, has been shortlisted for a PubAid Community Pub Hero award.

Regular customer, David Brown, nominated the Garden House for a Community Sport Hero Award after its owners, Jonathan and Tanya Childs, held a quiz night to fund raise for new goals for his son's football team.

"I know they support a number of grassroots and university sports teams so they are firmly at the heart of community sport."

"This recognition is testament to the incredible support and dedication of our local community and we want to thank everyone who has supported our much-loved neighbourhood pub and made this achievement possible.
