Another Norwich pub told it can not serve alcohol before East Anglian derby
Another Norwich pub has been told they will not be allowed to serve alcohol before the East Anglian derby.
The Steam Packet, on Crown Road, has been told by Norwich City Council they will not be able to serve alcohol before 12pm.
The Norwich v Ipswich game kicks-off at Carrow Road at 12pm, Sunday, February 10, meaning fans will not be able to drink before the match.
Bar manager Christian Gray said he understood the decision was made to protect people.
He added: 'It is not just us who has been affected. Many pubs in the area do not have a license to service before 12pm.
