Great Yarmouth pubs and bars

There's no time like being away, whether you're on holiday or just away for the weekend, to treat yourself to a few drinks.

Great Yarmouth is blessed with a huge choice of pubs and bars, all with a different style, so you're bound to find one that suits you whether you're in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston-on-Sea, Caister-on-SeaHemsby or further afield.

You might decide to enjoy a quiet pint in the afternoon sunshine in one of the lively pubs along Great Yarmouth seafront, relax in a beer garden in a pretty village pub in the countryside, or chill out with a drink in a tranquil riverside pub.

Many of our pubs have regular live music, karaoke, pool and darts, sport on the big screen and regular pub quiz nights. There's always something happening!

Real ale enthusiasts and visitors can savour nine bars in the town centre on a new Great Yarmouth Ale Trail, presented by East Norfolk CAMRA, where the best of local ales and ciders can be purchased. The trail is in easy reach of the rail station and the bus station at Market Gates, taking in the historic Market Place, Medieval Town Wall and St Nicholas Minster with views of the river. 

There are some great pubs serving food at lunch time and dinner time in the borough of Great Yarmouth. Pubs are a family friendly place to eat and drink, some have outdoor play equipment for the kids to leap about on and some pubs let you take your dog in too.

Most pubs have parking nearby, and some are next to the river so you can moor alongside and pop in for a drink or a bite to eat on your cruise along the Norfolk Broads.

Even when the summer tourists have gone home, if you're out and about on a walk in the borough or birdwatching, you'll be able to find a proper Norfolk local, whether in one of our seaside towns or villages or inland in the countryside, serving delicious home made food all year round.

From pubs that serve proper honest-to-goodness 'pub grub' to pubs which could be described as more gastro-pub style and pubs serving quality real ales and fancy cocktails, Great Yarmouth has them all.
