Operates mainly as a coffee bar during the day, and a music & arts bar in the evening. No real ale.

Opened as the Flour & Firkin in 1998 after conversion from a toy shop. The Firkin pub chain expanded rapidly in late 1990s and specialised in brewing their own real ale in-house, 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).

Name changed again early 2011 to Colman's, then early 2012 to Bar Sport. Took its current name in 2015.
