British
Real culinary heartbeat pumps through the pub with a unique attitude driven by our dedicated chefs and the team.

The Style is proudly British, and very local, taking influence and ingredients from Norfolk where possible. You will see dishes from the past, back in vogue at The Pigs, cuts of meat forgotten in recent years, used to great effect on our menus. Although the food is taken very seriously, the style of service and environment is very relaxed and casual.

This is a country pub, and although we are passionate about our food, we stay loyal to the building’s roots and ensure it has the atmosphere we all relish from a pub.

Very welcoming staff and efficient service without feeling rushed. Excellent Sunday roast and a pudding table to die for!

The food was very disappointing. There was a limited choice and we were all underwhelmed with the taste and quality. It seems the pub is trading on its past reputation. Service was slow with a drinks order placed at the start of the meal only arriving at the end. Very poor value for money and frankly over priced. Previous good experiences at the oub were a distant memory.

A pretty average roast dinner, not enough gravy or veg for me. I also found the beef very tough and needed a steak knife.
Pudding was good. Starter was ok. All in all I wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit for a Sunday.

We loved the room and didn’t leave it the whole time we were there! We chose to order room service and the girl who brought it was wonderful.The steaks however did not live up to expectation.for the price paid they were very fatty and we left a lot on the plate.We also had a cheese board which was great and the wings-which were covered in a sauce which wasn’t to our taste I’m afraid.We may have said something when we checked out but there was a long queue and it didn’t feel the right time to complain.We would love to come again for another stay-as a treat though because it is quite expensive but worth it.And next time maybe try some other things on the menu.Thanks for having us!

I had roast beef from the Sunday lunch menu it was all lovely apart from there wasn’t enough gravy, but I could’ve asked for more though.... but was disappointed with the roast potatoes they were poor not fluffy inside and not crisp on the outside, but apart from that it was great... the desserts were great... lots of choice.

We ate on Sunday when the restaurant was busy, but the tables are well spaced so we felt private. We started with the Ifits, which are small tapas style plates. My husband had the roast pork and I had the veggie roast, which was excellent. The portions were so generous that desserts weren’t an option! This was our first visit, but I booked again for another meal before we left.

I had heard such good things about here, but what a disappointment it was. Whilst I have to say my pork was lovely, mum and dads beef was tasteless and tough, the roast potatoes must have been very shy of meeting the oven and were pale and miserable. We had some tapas to start which was passable but not delicious. The desserts were plenty in availability but nicely left out for flies to wander over and they certainly were having a great time of it. As for the service, the women who took our order did not welcome us, smile or interact in any way other than taking our order, at one point she stretched across the table and her cardigan sleeve nicely grazed my mum's dinner. We asked for spoons for our dessert which were literally just plonked in a pile on the table without a word. We were at no point asked if we wanted further drinks and had to flag her down for coffee. Finally we were overcharged for a dessert we did not have, my dad raised this with the them at which point the person concerned seemed aghast that he would want his money back for the overcharge. All of this is not great but the final straw was, as I was guiding my mum down a step to leave the restaurant, (she is 86 and partially sighted) the said server tried to get past us with a loud excuse me while trying to barge between us. I have to say the whole thing was a miserable experience and I would not go back. The point of eating out is to have delicious food, great service and a memorable meal, this event was certainly memorable but for all the wrong reasons.

Evening meal was below standard, served raw chicken, service in the evening was also poor. Breakfast was nice but this seemed to take an age.
Room was nice and facilities were good.

We went for our Silver wedding anniversary, for a relaxing break, and that's what we got, very nice food, especially breakfast, the homemade sausage rolls and cheese and bacon twists, are to die for, also muffins, very nice spa room, very clean also, would highly recommend, but needed a bit more choice of menu, also a better dessert menu

When we arrived we felt rushed into ordering from a limited menu. The sea bass was off the menu and no poultry was on the menu.
The Tuna steak was raw. Twice this was returned to be re còoked. This meant each person ate separately. No offer was made to make amends for this. We were not brought the bill but had to go to the bar to complain and ask for a reduction whereas if someone had apologised in the right manner we would not of complained.

Fantastic as always, we ended up with 4 for 30th Birthday Lunch for my son, as youngest was called into work, no problem to change table and we sat in lovely restaurant there was even a happy birthday banner on wall in bunting, everyone enjoyed their choice of meals and drinks, was truly de-lish-ous!!!

my son and his lovely Girlfriend had not been before and enjoyed everything and looking forward to booking a stay in a spa room, so great impression made.

we spent a mini Honeymoon here and then this year our 1st Wedding Anniversary in the Wallow and booked again for our 2nd!
Everything about our visit's here makes celebrating or just popping in for a meal a special experience every time, Thank you Pigs Spa Team x

Stayed overnight here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived in the afternoon and were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful staff who showed us to our room and explained about the restaurant times for breakfast. We had booked a table for the evening meal and were very impressed with the reception from the young waitress who looked after us. The meal was absolutely delicious and well presented. All in all a wonderful place which we will definitely visit again.

Food very good, timing in between courses about right, service level ok but asked for refill on pint beer when main course arrived and this never appeared, prior to this waitress came and cleaned hot plate nearby and ended up catching my wife with cleaning spray not badly just a misting but not what you expect, should be aware of surroundings.
Overall a good experience nice beers and great food so would recommend to friends

Had a really lovely meal at The Pigs, surroundings lovely too, just feel that for a Sunday roast £16.50 was a little on the high side, would recommend though.

Lovely place with nice food. There was no music in restaurant though and the steak was not very good quality for the price, very thin and fatty. Would definitely go back though. Could do with a Veggie menu too.

Service was poor and sporadic, with some considerable attitude from waitress who initially tried to get us to sit down half an hour before our reservation (our table was booked for 6, we arrived at 5.30 for a drink and a play in the kids area (poorly maintained) before dinner)
Husband's dinner seemed mostly like leftovers from breakfast.
Mine was okay.
However, kids menu is good although would be better as a meal deal not separate courses.
Will not be rushing back or recommending for a good while!
