Open all day every day! The best local pub in the City? Pop in & decide for yourself...

Welcome to The Trafford Arms

Excellent beer, fine wines, great food – the heart in the heart of Norwich.

We are OPEN and ready to welcome you back (again!) from a suitable distance.

You can see our Opening Times HERE.

Outside The Trafford Arms pub.

We can cater for most dietary restrictions – just let us know. In line with current guidelines we’re taking bookings for tables of no more than six, single household groups inside (mixed households can sit together outside) and everyone joining us will need to order from the menu – we’re also still following all best practise to keep us all safe. We’ll be serving food all day, every day so you can come to see us at a time to suit you. You can see our DRINKS LIST here too.

Out tables are spaced out, staff have been trained in Covid safety and will be wearing PPE. We advise that you book a table – either via email or phone to 01603628466 to be sure we’ve got space for you but feel free to pop in if you’re passing and we’ll do our best! We hope that you’re all aware of government advice on who can meet together – please visit the government website HERE if not.

Please feel free to ask us any questions before, during or after your visit.


We’ve completed our Visit England assessment and confirmed we’re ‘Good to Go’ and you can be reassured further as we’ve opted to use Enviro-Safe 28 UK alongside our own regular, stringent cleaning to give us a ‘touch safe’ environment.


Welcome to the Trafford Arms, a local pub with a strong community feel right in the heart of Norwich. We are open all day every day, with excellent real ales, an annual beer festival, a great wine list and a delicious menu including home-cooked Sunday roasts.

With monthly quizzes, regular events such as wine tastings and an annual beer festival (in February) there’s always something going on.

An ever-changing selection of ten real ales lovingly cared for by our cellar team – you’ll find us in the CAMRA pub guide and we’ve held the Cask Marque for 15 years.

Owners Nick and Briony De’Ath are building on the pub’s outstanding reputation for friendliness and look forward to welcoming you.

The Pub

We’re all about the Beer… and the food …and the good times. But mostly about the Beer.

At any one time, we have over 10 different beers on here at the Trafford Arms.

Our 2020 Beer Festival was a ROARING success (despite the best efforts of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis!) and we can’t wait for next year – our 2021 Beer Festival will be held from 8th February – 14th February 2021!
