Norwich Closed Pubs – Refreshers

It was said that Norwich once had ‘a pub for every day of the year, and a church for every week’.

But in 1883 Norwich actually had 552 pubs!

At the time of writing, there are around 160 open pubs in Norwich and the number is fast declining.

Refreshers Norwich

Refreshers, 1 St Giles Street

At the corner of St Giles Street and Lower Goat Lane stands a very recently closed pub, Refreshers. Rebuilt in the 1950’s, the pub, previously called The Raven, had been there since at least the 18th century and the original building since at least the 16th century.

The workman inside informed us it was now going to become a pizzeria.
Another Norwich pub is lost.
