Bar SU

For socialising, sports and student events, Bar SU is the place to go.

Located on the ground floor of Union House, University of East Anglia.

I love going to the Bar SU for a drink after lectures with my friends and teammates, just to relax, play some pool and grab some food. There are also lots of events that happen in the Bar such as Bob’s Big Quiz every Sunday.

UNIO (Grab & Go)

Get your caffeine hit from the coffee shop by students, for students.

Located in Union House on campus

A really good place to grab a coffee (and vegan brownie!), or even study as it’s right in the middle of the hive – our student hub for the SU. It’s great for people watching too.

No. 33

No. 33

A top spot for all-day brunch, tasty lunch or homemade cake.

33 Exchange Street, Norwich, NR2 1DP.

The most amazing brunch and breakfasts, with lots of vegan and veggie options, as well as the all-important Full English. Lovely vibe but it’s always busy, so make sure you leave plenty of time.

The Lamb Inn

Pay a visit to Norwich’s second-oldest pub (complete with three ghosts).

Lamb Yard, Orford Place, Norwich, NR1 3RU.

This was the first place I took my parents to eat after moving to Norwich! The food is lovely, the staff are even better and the fairy lights outside combined with graffiti and little booths – what more could you want?

St Andrews Brew House

A microbrewery, bar and restaurant, all in one.

41 St Andrews Street, Norwich, NR2 4T.

As social secretary for a sports club, I chose St Andrews Brewhouse for our Christmas meal and it didn’t disappoint! They also have a pub bar and restaurant with options for all and their own microbrewery. It’s delightful.

The Bowling House

The Bowling House

Great for bowling, singing and eating (not all at the same time).

5-7 Dereham Road, Norwich, NR2 4HX.

The Bowling House is a great alternative to typical bowling alleys as they offer student nights as well as retro games and a karaoke room. I love the vibe here and it’s never overly busy.

Independents & The Lanes

Independents & The Lanes

A little village within a city, the Lanes foster a great sense of community.

Shopping here is an experience, especially at Christmas when you’re looking for one-off gifts for loved ones. It’s got various vintage and plant shops, as well as cafes and pubs, such as the Tearooms!
