Introducing the best pub in our county.

Following on from its victory in claiming the title of Norwich and Norfolk Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) Pub of the Year, the Fat Cat Brewery Tap on Lawson Road, Norwich, has scooped the Norfolk Pub of the Year and will now compete against its East Anglian rivals.

The Norwich pub saw off competition from its closest rivals, The Kings Arms in Shouldham, the West Norfolk Camra entry.

Landlord Mark White said the award was 'humbling' and the team were extremely proud.

'I read an article recently which had a really interesting argument about what makes a great pub, the atmosphere or the beer,' he added.

'Fundamentally, what we try to do is both. We try to present the pub as a really friendly and warm place to be as well as trying to get the most diverse beer range possible.

'Now we are down to the last seven pubs in East Anglia is completely humbling. We almost feel like we don't really deserve it. Knowing the pub industry in the city and just how hard everybody works it is a real honour to be recognised like this.'

Landlady Laura Hedley-White added: 'We work hard in order to create a unique venue and by receiving another accolade from such a prestigious organisation such as Camra really does mean a lot to us and our team.'

Norfolk area organiser Martin Ward said: 'It was an extremely close competition, both pubs are to be congratulated on the standards of beer quality, service and welcome they provided, along with the excellent impression they gave to the judges.'
