Opened as the Flour & Firkin in 1998 after conversion from a former toy shop. This former pub chain expanded rapidly in late 1990s and specialised in brewing their own real ale, although this outlet never had it's own brewery (beers were produced at one of the Norwich Firkins). Since then it has been used as a late night music bar (originally as Edward's, renamed Lakota late 2009) which can be very popular at weekends.
Name changed again early 2011 to Colman's, then early 2012 to Bar Sport.
Reported closed in April 2013; this was confirmed in May.
