Also known as the NUTS & BOLTS.

Full licence granted Tuesday 25th August 1868 to Larrance Dawes.

On Thursday 9th February 1905 the Chief Constable objected to licence renewal owing to the back doors opening into enclosed yards common to other tenements.


A 6 day licence was held from 1872 to 10th February 1959, when the licence of the WHITE LION, St. Benedict's, was removed to these premises.

Address also found as 1 St. John Maddermarket and
1 St Johns Street.

One of the very few Norwich houses to escape the ravages of `modernisation' during the 1980's

 - The main bar WAS a rare gem.
The zinc topped bar was a rare survivor.
The back bar fittings with gilded mirrors offering
Whiskies, Cigars, Brandies, Gin & Rum
 were a delight.
.................................................

27th October 2003.
House closed for refurbishment.
The Victorian front bar and rear of bar fittings did not survive.

The name BOLTZ appeared on the new windows at the end of November 2003.
The signs for the IRONMONGERS and NUTS & BOLTS
had disappeared by December 2003

Became MIKE'S July 2008 and then
the IRON HOUSE in early 2011.


  The Norwich Pub Survey of 1986, compiled by the Norwich Society, in association with Norwich City Council, assessed the house:-  
 
Approx date of building Listed Quality Pre-war fittings surviving
External Internal

( A further observation states that the house was known as the WAND & SEAMAN * in the late 19thC and as the **SUN & ANCHOR TAVERN in 1820 )
* Ward & Seaman were wine & spirit merchants.
** The
SUN & ANCHOR is believed to have been at a different location.
