The Whalebone Freehouse is situated just a couple of miles north of Norwich City centre and nestles amongst the many Georgian chimney pots in NR3, affectionately known as the Platinum Triangle.

The Whalebone built circa 1830 is an independent, privately owned Pub and was purchased by the current owner Mike Lorenz in 1993. Since then the Whalebone has undergone many tasteful restorations and additions and has been run by General Manager Steve Fiske since 1994

Described by many when visiting for the first time as a tardis, the space and varied facilities behind the small front entrance are deceiving and our claim to be where Traditional Pub meets Modern Wine Bar have been endorsed by customers comparing the Whalebone to that of “ A hidden gem “.

In addition to an exciting selection of Lagers and Ciders eight Cask Ales are always on tap from Regional and Local Breweries and with Cask Marque accreditation quality is assured. To complement this some great Wines supplied by Adnams of Southwold are available from our cellar.
