Pub overview

A great opportunity for an operator to take on a sport led pub that offers entertainment regularly.

The Norfolk is a sport led pub that is known for its entertainment. It features a single bar, various seating areas for those wanting to dine and a separate room for entertainment featuring a pool table and darts. The pub has an outdoor beer garden perfect for all seasons due to having a sheltered area with heaters and two TV screens to enjoy sport. The pub regularly has quiz nights and live music making it the go to pub to be entertained. The pub also features four large TV's and a giant projector screen for the big matches so all can enjoy when visiting the pub.

It is located just next to Colchester's Railway station and is one of the first pubs to come across on route to the town centre. There is a direct bus route to and from the town centre going past the pub.

This site is fully tied but offers discounted prices for wines, spirits, minerals and packaged with also a discount band of blended £36 for our beer.
