FAP Rating 4 - Click for an explanation of our ratings
A homely haven that is a strong challenger for the competitive title of best pub in Norwich. Expertly managed by a local family, the Ribs has a comfortable, warm and modern interior with oldie style wall adornments and thick padded chairs. A small balcony area perched on the banks of the Wensum allows a picturesque view of the water that can also be enjoyed in the downstairs restaurant. But where the Ribs really excels is in its excellent ale selection that has chalked up 5,000 different tipples in the past 21 years a thoroughly believable claim when one discovers at least ten different choices on offer at any one visit (and of course, the standard lagers and bitters). Combined with a friendly vibe, nice staff, good food and reasonable prices you have the right mix for a near flawless pub.
