New website, new branding, same atmosphere & same service
After nearing 16 years running the Golden Star pub on Colegate, I felt it was about time we updated our brand and our website. One of our regulars who has been coming into the pub for nearly 5 years runs a web & graphic design studio, so I asked them about updating our site and brand and also our follow on marketing. visualise came back with some great ideas and I was keen to get on board and push things forward. So… that’s exactly what we did.
First I got the guys at visualise to work on creating a new brand, I didn’t want to go to far away from the initial concept but I wanted something more modern and to attract some new clientele that have probably never heard about us. With several concepts to consider we worked together to finalise a design, of which you can see in the header of our website. Over the coming months, I will be working on updating everything to reflect the new brand.
With the new brand finalised, the visualise team worked on the new website. I loved the design they came up with, keeping the traditional feel of the pub, yet making everything easy to view, keep everyone up to date with the latest events, showcase the pubs atmosphere, promote the ‘Lost Garden’ (which many customers are unaware of) and to focus on our menus. Our menus carry the theme of the chalk board with the lights surrounding it, which is a great touch.
At the Golden Star we like to think we cater for everyone. As well as our alcoholic beverages, for those just wanting to pop in for a sit down with the laptop or just to watch the world go by we serve Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee and freshly blended fruit smoothies.
Our lunch menu served Monday to Saturday offers great value and quality for a relaxed lunch with friends or a quick bite in your break from work or college. Great vegetarian meals are always a feature of her menu.
In addition to all this great grub we are at heart a locals pub serving a great selection of well kept ales, wines and spirits. We love to welcome you in our comfortable bar for a pint and a chat while watching the world go by!
At weekends we host regular live music on Saturday nights with local bands playing a mixture of blues, folk, bluegrass and rock. Check out our ‘What’s On‘ page for what is coming up.
Our weekly Sunday night quiz is hosted by Danger Dave which guarantees questions to suit a wide group of folk. It’s £1pp to enter and is the perfect way to wind down your weekend.
If that wasn’t enough for you the Golden star is also home to one of Norwich’s few bar billiards tables which is available to play all day. Easy to learn and suitably compelling to keep you entertained for an afternoon or evening!
If you’ve never visited the Golden Star before, then we’d love you to pop on in and spend an evening in our company, or just a swift half!
Looking forward to seeing you Star bound soon.
