The Ostrich

Picture source: David Williams


The Ostrich was an ex-meeting place of the Norfolk branch of the Far East Prisoner Of War Association.
 I lived at the Ostrich Inn from 1963 to 1974 with my parents who were landlord and landlady there - Charlie and Myrtle Hawes. They took over the pub in 1963 just after a major refit by Tolly Cobbold.
One story we were told that the place was haunted by a grey lady but my dad, being a sceptic, said the only spirits in there were on the shelves! I live in South wales now but was in Norfolk last week with my mum and we noticed that renovations are being carried out at the Ostrich.
