I moved to Australia from Norwich over a decade ago, and over the last few years it has become a bit of a tradition to visit this pub when I am back in the area. This year my visit coincided with Father’s Day, so I decided to book lunch at the Rushcutters for my father, my wife, my three year old daughter and myself. From the second we walked in the service was excellent, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble despite the busy day. They made us feel very welcome. I had been warned that the menu was a ‘special Father’s Day menu’ when I booked so I was expecting a limited selection, but there was a huge choice. We were extremely impressed with the children’s menu which had lots of great, healthy options. The three adults opted for the chicken liver pate with roasts as main, and we ordered vegetable sticks with dip for starters and grilled salmon as main for my daughter. Prices were reasonable and the food was great – decent roasts tend to be few and far between in Australia so I always make a point of having at least one on my visits back. I had the pork roast with crackling and it did not disappoint. We came away very impressed as we have been every other visit, and my father could not stop raving about the food and the service, even uttering the phrase “everyone that comes to Norwich should come here!”. Probably a bit strong (he’s 77 and doesn’t get out much :-)) but it’s definitely worth a visit!
