Traditional Pub Games at Ribs of Beef

5 June 2012 - 7:30pm

Anthea and Roger Cawdron, Ribs of BeefJoin Ribs of Beef's genial hosts Roger and Anthea Cawdron for an evening of traditional pub games at their riverside hostelry.

This historic building sits by one of the earliest bridges crossing the Wensum and had been an inn for over 200 years before being delicensed in the 1950s.

Thirty years later Roger and Anthea found themselves gazing longingly across the water from the pub they were managing, the Mischief Tavern. They were persuaded by the local brewers to reopen it as a pub rather than their original idea, a boat club.

Breaking the mould again, leather sofas, carpets, wine, food and – of course – an array of fine ales followed soon after, rapidly cementing the Ribs of Beef's place as 'the City's favourite local'.

Home to the annual charity Duck Race, don't forget to check out the decked terrace with its views up and down the river.
