Following Government guidelines our Bar must remain closed, however if the road map goes to plan we hope to open on Monday, May 17th. In the meantime, we invite you to join us for a drink and watch the world go by whilst sitting outside at the front of the Hotel. Order a coffee, tea, hot chocolate or maybe celebrate with one of our cocktails. Just sit back and relax, no pre booking. required.

If you’re looking for a relaxed setting for a lunch or dinner or even just a drink with friends, the Maids Head Bar is a fantastic setting. Located in the Norwich city centre in the UK’s oldest hotel, the bar features wood panelling and beautiful decor.

We offer a full bar menu and a range of beers on tap, wines, spirits and hot drinks. We are the perfect destination for a break during a shopping trip or sightseeing visit to the city, especially given the history of the hotel.

The history of our hotel bar

Originally named the ‘Molde Fish Tavern’, the Jacobean Oak panelled Maids Head Bar has been serving the great and good of Norfolk since the 1200s. Horatio Nelson himself is rumoured to have had his first pint here.

We are open every day from 10am to 11pm. Residents are able to order drinks in the hotel lounge outside these hours, to be charged to their room.

Drink service times:

10am-11pm, daily.

Food service times:

The bar menu is available from 10am-10pm daily and a 24 hour menu is available for guests staying at the hotel.

To allow for better social distancing measures we will be using our newly refurbished, historic Yard Bar for the service of drinks and table service will be available. Our pretty courtyard also provides a tranquil setting where drinks and food can also be served
