A much-loved city centre pub is set to reopen next week following an extensive refurbishment by its new bosses.

The Edith Cavell, opposite Norwich Cathedral in Tombland, will open on Thursday, July 13, after it was taken over by new owners who will focus on daytime coffees and relaxed drinks during the day before turning into a bar open until late.

Ahead of reopening, partners Brandon Hoult and Adrian Emmerson, who previously ran a Sheffield sports bar, have been busy giving the interior a modern update, adding rotating craft beer taps and a cocktail machine.

The building's upstairs area will remain closed until autumn, when an "immersive experience" will open, which the pair say will be as much a tourist destination as a bar.

Its opening was delayed from May after the pub's owners, Stonegate, pumped additional funding into the pub in order to make the new bosses' vision come true.

Mr Hoult said: “We like a project, so we’ve closed it and renovated it and we’ll be looking to turn it into a bar at night while attracting the coffee crowd in the day.

“Upstairs we’re having something separate, which will remain a secret, but it’s something which will be massive for us.

“It’ll be an immersive experience which will be as much a tourist attraction as a bar, but the two will have separate entrances, we don’t want downstairs to become a waiting room for upstairs like it seemed to be previously.”

The boozer was previously owned by Andrew McNeil, who left in March last year, after his other pub, the York, closed in January.

Ahead of the reopening, the pub is still looking for staff with adverts on Indeed, while those interested in working at the new boozer are able to email besocial@edithcavell.co.uk.
