AS OF THE 20TH MARCH
WE ARE CLOSED
It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.
Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!
While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.
As of the 20 March we are closed. It is with great sadness we are calling last orders in all our pubs for the time being, given the escalation of the coronavirus crisis.
Welcome to the
On the banks of the beautiful River Yare - the gateway to the Norfolk Broads; stands the 16th century Grade II listed Rushcutters, a delightful inn-on-the-river in the lovely village of Thorpe St. Andrew, a conservation area of special architectural and historical interest. The Rushcutters' riverside gardens and terrace overlook the busy river traffic en route from nearby Norwich to Great Yarmouth, a 35 mile stretch much loved by boaters, ramblers and cyclists, following the river route on the Wherryman's Way trail through the heart of the Broads. Thorpe St. Andrew itself is uniquely special, an affluent area once within the estates of the Bishops of Norwich and a fashionable place of residence for the wealthier citizens of Norwich during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Set between the River Yare on one side and a steep wooded slope on the other, with views across Whitlingham Broads and Country Park, the village was once described as ‘the Richmond of Norfolk'. Many large residences were built here on the river and The Rushcutters, built between 1580 and 1600, is one of the earliest buildings. Guests can enjoy riverside dining as the boats and barges go quietly by in the summer – The Rushcutters has its own boat moorings. It's hard to imagine a more scenic spot to spend an afternoon. The Rushcutters offers an extensive pub menu with seasonal specials and tasty pub classics available all day. On Sundays, enjoy the perfect roast dinner with unlimited gravy and a huge Yorkshire pudding, with an excellent selection of real ales and fine wines.
