A reunion of punters of the Railway Tavern in Dereham from the 1980s was a great success with well over 100 people attending.

The event was organised by Kristine Edwards who used to be landlady at the Tavern and along with current landlord Paul Sandford they put out a call for all who remembered her and drank there during her tenancy to come along.

The pub was popular with bikers in those days and bikes used to be lined up along the roadside by the pub.

There was a similar scene on Saturday and Mrs Edwards even took a turn behind the bar for old time's sake.

Mr Sandford said the reunion had gone so well that Mrs Edwards decided to make it an annual event.
