To celebrate being the first stop on the Unthank Trail for the City of Ale Festival, the Sir Toby's Beers stall has designed a food and beer matching menu for people to enjoy with lunch from Norwich Market.

The menu is designed for people to either choose lunch first and match it with a beer or vice versa and the stall even has some pocket-sized versions of the menu for market-goers to carry with them.

There are 11 different food stalls featured on the menu, but the matching counts for any food choice.

Any beer that is matched is to be enjoyed within the Sir Toby's licensed double-stall.

The City of Ale festival runs until June 2, but the owners of Sir Toby's Beers said they think the menu will be here to stay.
