Built in 1786, the first known licensee was George Kew in 1841. The Vine has long been the smallest pub in Norwich. From 1846-1860 it was known as the Albert Tavern (named after Prince Albert) but when Prince Albert died in 1861 the pub reverted to the Vine. Aey Allen now runs the pub offering Thai cuisine both in the bar and the upstairs restaurant.
