Possible summer 2012 Sunday Pub meet.

Post  darrenzs on 17/10/2011, 6:09 am

I know of a pub in Norfolk run by a husband and wife team who are MG enthusiasts,who own an interesting collection of cars. (MGA, B, Midget, MGRV8 and ZT!)
The pub possesses a large car park, and the hosts welcome car clubs there for meets -especially if their cars sport an octagonal badge! Cool
I've been thinking this would be a great venue to have lunch as part of a sunday road-run through the Norfolk countryside? Driver
Located just north of Norwich, I understand the mileage involved would be considerable from the midlands, but as a one-off would it not be worth it?
Anyway, mull over the idea everyone and if there is enough interest we can discuss dates with the pub.

I found the pub last year by sheer chance, when my ex and I were looking for lunch- imagine our surprise when we entered the bar to find MG paraphernalia decorating the walls? and an excited landlord wanting to know more about the ZS!

Anyway here is the link to their website:

There seems to be a few campsites nearby too so perhaps we could make a weekend of it... Makes more sense than a 270 mile round trip pub run with the cost of fuel, and would mean we could head for the beach while we're up there!
Great outdoors Cheers!

Sounds like a good plan. I bought my TF from somewhere quite close to Norwich so would be a bit of a homecoming Very Happy

Don't get too carried away Lee. You're already doing something for your birthday... Rolling Eyes

June can be a busy month so it can't be guaranteed that this will be when it happens. And the campsites around the area are rather unlikely to be suitable for that sort of thing. Firstly they would not allow live music as they are small quiet venues and secondly this is likely to be an SmS exclusive run with just invited guests only. But that doesn't stop us having some fun. Nick described it perfectly! Bear in mind that the pub was the main reason for starting the event so we'll be there. Don't know how many it holds or whether they would be prepared to arrange some entertainment for us. I shall liaise with Darren and the pub vendors and start to get things in place...

Does the pub have a decent garden that could be used for camping?

One of the reasons I suggested camping in the first place was because of the choice of places within almost walking king distance of the pub. So I think we'll be fine with one of them. I'll start to make enquiries over the weekend if I get a chance between restoration and refubishment work!
