20 Westlegate - Warings Lifestore
This Grade 2 listed, late 16th/early 17th century building used to be a public house known at various times as the 'Barking Dickie' (named after the pub sign which signboard, which is said to have looked like a braying donkey -a barking dickey or dickie in the Norfolk dialect - than a dragoon's horse), the 'Light Dragoon' and the 'Light Horseman', with the first documented licensee having been James Moneyment in 1830. By 1912 it had become greengrocer Arthur Kemp's shop and during the 1960s it housed a bank branch and later Casaccio’s Coffee Shop. After having been damaged by fire in 2013 it is currently a café known as Warings Lifestore.

The building is one of only six thatched houses in Norwich, due to a ban on thatched roofing issued in Tudor times because of the high fire risk of thatch.
