Moby Duck left this review about The Wildman

A lot of the former reviewers description still holds true, definitely still on the trendy side of things, an odd mix of Boho/med/cocktail bar all mixed into one, seating on the wooden flooring was an equal mix of high and low chairs and tables, raised benches, sofas and poufee's. there was also a large TV screen at one end of the bar with muted Sky Sports on, a decent and varied selection of music was playing at a medium level, a couple of notches below being invasive. Two cask beers on out of three handpumps, Doom Bar and Adnams Ghost Ship, I of course plumped for the latter. For non real ale fans there was a slection of craft, premium lager and cider on keg. All in all it was pleasant and relaxing but not somewhere I would mak repeat visits.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Wildman

The attractive exterior of this historic pub - named after Peter the Wildboy who mysteriously turned up in Norwich in the 18th century - has recently been refurbished, but this only hints at the thorough modernisation inside. Opened out to form a 'L'-shaped bar: light at the front but quite gloomy towards to the rear (although the bar counter itself is well lit). Four of six handpumps on when I visited, offering Wherry, Pride, Broadside and Ghost Ship (£3.60). Overall, now a strange mixture of trendy bar and ale house.

The Wild Man used to be a Tolly Cobbold tied house.
This pub is in the middle of Norwich and it is on a nice looking cobbled street.
Once inside the pub is fairly comfortable and it has'nt been altered that much,there were two real ales on the bar i had a drink of Adnams bitter and this was a decent drink the other beer was GK Abbot.
I thought this was a decent pub to have a few drinks in.
