The team at an award-winning Norfolk pub are hitting the road this summer with a new mobile bar.

The Bird in Hand in Wreningham, near Wymondham, which also offers bed and breakfast accommodation, is owned by brother-and-sister duo Alex and Lizzie Brake. 

They have decided to diversify by converting a former mobile council library into a huge bar, which will be ready in four to six weeks. 

It will be able to cope with high demand with two hatches, two tills, and two serving stations and will go to events across Norfolk and Suffolk, including car club meets.

It will serve draught lager, gins, ciders, craft beers, and a range of soft drinks.

Mr Brake said: "We are always looking for ways to diversify the business and help underpin it in these testing times.

"Having been to a number of outdoor events and experienced considerable wait times for drinks at other venues we think we’ve spotted a potential gap in the market."
