The Yare Valley Morris from the University of East Anglia
dancing at the Cock Tavern, June 1992

The pub that many old friends of mine remember as 'the pub where we morris danced in the road and this big bloke in his Range Rover came along and drove over Nicky's tankard'. Quite a big pub really with a pool table around the back, oak beams separating the drinking areas, in fact there's enough space in which to morris dance with reasonable ease. A very friendly pub and if you stay there all evening you'll probably end up talking to some of the locals like Len maybe. Ask them if they've ever tried morris dancing. Anyhow there's lots of beers including guests usually from smaller breweries though they always do a good pint of Woodforde's Wherry (abv. 3.8%) - CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain 1996. It's one of those pubs that seems to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere, but it does fill up especially if there's a darts or petanque match on.
