Welcome to The Whalebone
The Whalebone Freehouse is an independent privately-owned blend of traditional pub and modern wine bar, run by Steve and Karen Fiske since 1992.
With ten real ales, a great choice of draught and bottled beers from around the world plus an extensive selection of wine by the glass or bottle, we have something for everybody.
With Cask Marque accreditation and regular entry in the CAMRA Good beer guide the Whalebone is well known for the quality and selection of real ales available. In November this year the pub holds a beer festival when over sixty ales are on tap or hand pump.
Built circa 1840 the Whalebone has been tastefully restored over the years with one of the many features being a bar from Bullard & Co a notable brewery from Norwich’s historic brewing tradition.
