Now is your chance as two Norwich pubs have been put up for sale on estate agents site Right Move.

The 130 year old Quebec Tavern, in Quebec Road, and The Forge, in Philadelphia Lane have been put up for sale on the site with both pubs looking for offers of around £250,000.

Husband and wife John and Amanda Barber had taken over The Forge in 2011 with the hope of turning it into an old fashioned back street pub.

Before taking it on, the couple managed the Bell in Brandon, near Thetford, for about five months, but before that neither had any experience of running a pub.

Now it is run by Hanser Inns who have a lease with the pub.

The Quebec has become listed after the pub was closed for some time as previous landlords Felix and Lisa Snell walked out in protest against rent increases.
