Great Yarmouth Pubs and Bars

In Great Yarmouth, like most towns in Norfolk, there is absolutely no excuse for going thirsty. There were once more than 60 pubs and bars in and around the town. As in most towns they are slowly disappearing particularly as a result of the recession. However, there are still more than 40 establishments to choose from offering a variety of choice to suit everybody’s circumstances. Most, if not all, of them also serve food to satisfy most people’s taste.

There are dog friendly pubs such as The Kings Arms in Northgate Street, Quayside Tavern in South Quay or O Gradys in Howard Street. These are all family friendly pubs, as are many others, including the Rumbold Arms in Southtown Road. The Rumbold Arms has a constantly changing range of real ales and serves quality homemade food - if you are really hungry you could try their Rumbold Pigout.

Real ale buffs could do worse than try the Troll Cart in Regent Road, the Tudor Tavern in St Nicholas Road, The Bricklayers Arms in Nelson Road or the Pub On The Prom in Marine Parade. Many of the pubs have pool tables and dart boards and almost all of them offer excellent friendly service. As you would expect in this day and age disabled access is not a problem at most venues. If real ale is not for you then you might prefer a glass of vino in one of the few wine bars such as Kings Wine Bar in King Street or Lilys Wine Bar Pub in George Street.

So, if you are looking for a family pub, a dog friendly pub, a real ale pub, a pub with good food or a combination of any or all of these or just a wine bar there is a choice of venues to meet your requirements.

If you are into the clubbing scene then Great Yarmouth has plenty to offer, like the Mission Bar on Marine Parade which plays RnB, Funky House and Soul Classics. Bar X in the Regent Road area of the seafront is a trendy chill-out venue with free admission and Evolution on King Street boasts a 40ft bar with comfy sofas and is open until 4am. Here in Great Yarmouth there is no excuse for not having an enjoyable holiday and at the end of it all you can head back to your hotel, bed and breakfast or guest house for a good night’s (or good morning’s!!!) rest.

Wherever you want to go, if you plan to have a drink why not leave your car behind and use the services of some excellent local taxi firms such as Albies Taxis.
