More door staff than bar staff. Had one member of staff splitting his time between serving behind the bar & delivering food on a busy football match day. Prices looked pretty expensive before we gave up waiting and went elsewhere.

See picture above. If that doesn't put you off then the watered down sauce may. Failing that stop drinking. On this planet, it's easy.

Pretty grim! Industrial lagers, Fosters and Stella Artois. Perfunctory service. "Walkabout" must refer to the exercise one gets going to the lavs. Noisy, few seats. Only worth a visit if you like big screen sports.

Good for food & drinks, the bar staff are quite nice also. Obviously if you want to watch sport in the town this is your point of destination.

Watched the Norwich v Reading game here live on the box in April 2009 after other pubs in the vicinity that are usually packed out for big screen sport shamefully failed to show the game - an embarrassment to the town. It's what you expect from a Walkabout - totally dire and symptomatic of all that is wrong with Britain today. The place scores an undeservedly high 2 out of 10 simply because it hasn't taken over existing historic premises. The pub is housed in a wannabe nuclear bunker.
