A crazy golf and cocktail bar has swung into the city with the holes on the course inspired by Norwich legends.
Savage Golf has opened as a pop-up in the former Giraffe restaurant in Chapelfield Plain and will be at the venue until Saturday, December 21.
The nine-hole course is darkly lit and features neon lights and fluorescent paint and is spread over two floors with a range of obstacles to navigate.
There is also a nod to Norwich on the names of the holes, which includes 'Let's Be 'Avin You', inspired by Delia Smith, and Puppet Man's Revenge.
The business has been created by Leon Dawdry, Leigh Taylor and Rory Daines, who are all in their thirties and have been friends since their school days at Taverham High.

The trio all come from different backgrounds, with Mr Dawdry working as a qualified accountant, Mr Daines owns an environmental management company and Mr Taylor is a chef for Norwich City players, who they hope will visit.
Mr Daines said: "I lived in Manchester for ten years and about six years ago the first crazy golf bar opened in Manchester and I thought it had done really well and then I moved back to Norwich and there was nothing like it here.

"It has been an interesting journey and we have learnt a lot so it is good to do it with your best mates."
Alongside beers and spirits there are golf-inspired cocktails, which are The Deadball, Singapore Swing, Sex in the Bunker, a twist on the classic drink topped with sweets, and a Savage Mojito.
Mr Daines added: "The bar scene is in decline across the country and places like the Bowling House in Dereham Road that mix drinks with an activity have done well, so I think this is something good for Norwich.
"People should visit as it is something a bit different from your usual night out."
Savage Golf is from Tuesday to Sunday from 2pm to 11pm with under-18s allowed in, with adult supervision, from 2pm to 5pm (excluding Saturdays).
