About Us

The pub can be traced back to 1842 and from 1846-1860 it was known as the Albert Tavern (named after Prince Albert) but when Prince Albert died in 1861 the pub reverted to the Vine. It was known as The Vine Tavern in Dove Street until 2008 when Aey Allen took over.

The Vine Thai Norwich has a reputation of not only serving fine beers, but also delicious traditionally cooked Thai Cuisine.  All our foods are cooked fresh to order and many dishes can be made vegetarian or vegan.

As well as real English Ales, the pub also boasts a range of world and fruit beers and bottled ciders and also has a selection of wines and whiskeys. Every year in May, we take part in the Norwich City of Ale Festival and we also hold our own Winter and Summer Ale Festivals.

As well as Beer Festivals, we run a Quiz Night once a month and have ongoing special offers.

The restaurant is upstairs, although customers often eat downstairs in the bar area. Extra tables are set ouside in the pedestrianised street should you wish to have a drink outside or eat al fresco. 

We are conveniently located in the centre of Norwich in the Norwich Lanes. We are open Mondays -Saturdays from 11am to 11pm. We are closed on Sundays apart from special occasions and you can also hire out the Vine Thai Pub on Sundays for your special event or occasion.

Families are welcome.
