Walnut Tree Shades (Norwich)

+ Google Map
The Old Post Office Court
Norwich, Norfolk NR2 1NG United Kingdom
01603 622 910 www.thewalnuttreeshades.com/

The Walnut Tree Shades has been around since the sixteenth century, and licensed as a pub in 1841 by one William Haylett Roe. Since then The Walnut has gone on to be the home of 35 other landlords.

Way back, or not such a way for some of us, in 1982 The Walnut Tree made a cameo appearance along side Toyah Wilcox in Tales of the Unexpected episode “Blue Marigold”.

The Walnut Tree was used by Norwich Brewery as an outlet for their trial brews and it’s reported that this was the first ever pub to serve ‘Starlight’. It was also the first pub to have Budweiser on
draught in the city centre.

The Walnut Tree’ cellar was believed to be part of Norwich’ famous ‘Underground Tunnel Network’ although it is now, sadly, blocked off.

Henry Williamson, famous for books such as ‘Tarka the Otter’ and ‘Salar the Salmon’ references the pub in his book ‘Lucifer Before Sunrise’, where he writes, “Afterwards he treated himself to a pint of beer made from East Anglian coastal barley in a pub called The Shades, down a dark narrow street leading off the market”.

John Riddington Young speculates that although this (The Walnut Tree) would be a name frequently adopted by cabinet makers, there is no evidence that this was ever the case here.

Deadlines

To have YOUR event included in Grapevine Magazine all you have to do is add it online.

It will need to be online by the 10th of this month for inclusion in next month's magazine.

If you miss the deadline for inclusion in the printed magazine your events will still appear online.

We manually approve all submissions, it may take up to 24hrs to publish your event – longer at weekends.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information in our listings from time to time events change or get cancelled. We strongly suggest that you check with the venue especially if you intend to travel any distance. Ticket prices shown are, generally speaking, the most you should expect to pay. In many cases discounts and concessions are available and often tickets bought in advance are less than ‘on the door’ prices.
