A Night in Norwich, Norfolk - 9th June 2006

Nosher gets back from a few days working in Spain in time for a Friday trip up to Norwich: taxi from the pub to Diss Station; train to Norwich and then a cab from there to the Fat Cat off Dereham Road for several beers. From there, The Mikey-P Massive and Jen+Simon join us to continue the beer theme (and then give us a lift down to the Reindeer on the corner of Valentine Street and Dereham Road). The Reindeer is only feet away from Nosher's old house on Valentine Street, and it's a bit strange sitting there looking at the old pad. In 1987, The Reindeer was a much smaller pub with its own brewery, but it's good to see that my old barber - "Sweeney's" - is still there. After the Reindeer, it's a short walk down St. Benedict's Street to the Ten Bells, opposite Norwich Arts Centre. Finally, it's another lift, courtesy of Mikey-P, who drops us off at the station, where we just make the last train back to Diss with around 5 seconds to spare...
