A new craft ale bar has opened in King’s Lynn.

Former North West Norfolk Labour Party Prospective Parliamentary candidate Jo Rust cut a ribbon last Thursday to mark the opening of Nip and Growler Ale House in the High Street.

The bar is a new venture for business partners Clare Biggs and Elise Rout, who formerly ran Bar Red in the town for 1l years.

The ale house has employed three members of staff, one full-time and two part-time. It is open seven days a week.
