OPEN for rooms from the 4th July
Restaurant OPEN from 24th of July. Bookings now available via open table.

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.

Menus far too specialised for our taste. Am sure ‘foodies’ would love it.
No waitress so had to order at the bar then three appeared to ask us if we were enjoying it...
Recommend Only to real foodies .

A very busy lunchtime. The only table available was apart from the main restaurant which meant that we were in splendid isolation for most of our meal. One of the reasons we decided to eat out was so that we could experience a bit of "normality" that is, how life was, before the pandemic. However having a meal prepared and brought to us was very welcome after months of self catering.
The food was of the normal high standard, we could not have asked for better service.
Thank you The Pigs for helping us out of lockdown. We have donated the saving that we had on the meal to charity, The Children's Society.

Lovely food. Lovely surroundings. However sat next to a very loud party table and at time couldn’t hear ourselves speaking to each other. We benefitted from the eat out scheme so didn’t feel we could mention at the time but the kids desserts were £1.25 for a 50p squirt of cream and another £1.25 for sauce. Kids ice cream was priced at £5 for two scoops, smallest squirt of cream and a little sauce.
I really would recommend this as an eatery the play area is fab. But pick menu standard food. The kids brownie and ice cream was cheaper than just the ice cream!

The pub was busy but the three men serving were doing an incredible job, despite being rushed off their feet.
The food was prompt, well presented and very tasty; so filling that we didn't have room for dessert. We would definitely return.

There were a few issue with our room ie: clogged shower extractor not working & audio cable broken which I feel should have been checked prior to our stay & I’m still awaiting response to a few emails. I was also sent an email regarding massage but wasn’t told it would be from an unrecognizable account so I assumed it was spam
Overall loved the stay accommodation food and quality & attentiveness

Upon our return to The Pigs after 4 years, we found it had gone dismally downhill. We visited on a Sunday, the menu was very limited apart from Tapas and a roast, only a few choices over those. Drinks took a long while to come so we went up to the bar to collect them ourselves. The roast had no Yorkshire, pork mostly consisting of fat, and I am 90 % certain the potatoes were frozen Aunt Bessies, really unpleasant. As for the tapas my daughter ordered, the crackling was so hard it almost broke your teeth, the tomato salad had both green completely unripe tomatoes in it slushy overripe ones! The cheese fritters were bland and hard also. And the ribs were stone cold, like not even lukewarm, stone cold! There was no ambience or music on in the pub so all we could hear were the kids in the playground shouting and playing, we had to close the windows ourselves to block it. So disappointing, I hope they up their game soon. But we won’t be visiting again to find out unfortunately.

My Sunday Roast pork was overcooked (and therefore very tough) in parts but the rest was lovely. Not sure The Pigs have got the memo on Covid though. I think the open sweet trolley has risk of contamination and was taken aback to see the waitress replace cutlery on the next table by holding the ends that go in your mouth!

Disappointed. Beef overdone and a little tough. Yorkshire puds overdone. Roast potatoes not roasted enough. Meal lukewarm. Pudding table was OK. Wine came in an ice bucket but was lukewarm and only a little chilled when the readily dissolving ice cubes were added to it.

No hand sanitiser offered. Staff not wearing face coverings.

Our first and last visit.

Good quality food that was delicious. Varied menu. Good service, sorry did not get the waitress name. Managed to get booking on a Saturday afternoon on Friday evening.
Just be careful in the car park during street food Saturdays, nearly got wiped out by car driving too fast to get to street food car park area. The lady in car park doing her best.

We had been passed a number of times over the years & recently heard from some friends who really recommended it...so we went & from the time we booked & stepped in we were not disappointed, the staff were welcoming & extremely pleasant, also a very relaxed atmosphere & food was very good...definitely won’t hesitate to go again.
Well done all at the “Pigs“

In the context of the current COVID 19 outbreak and comparing you to other eating establishments we have recently experienced, we were somewhat perplexed by the casual approach in demonstrating a safe eating and drinking environment.
In hindsight, we should not have been surprised as you made no reference to COVID 19 on your website.
Whilst we are not paranoid about COVID 19, we would have expected a more thorough and engaging approach to secure the wellbeing of your customers and of course your staff. For this we hold the management responsible and not the hard working staff. A few examples are the menus being taken away and then brought back for the dessert choice- were these the same menus or different ones? Also, we watched tables being wiped down after customers had left but not the seating.
The hand sanitiser was in the entrance hall but with a door handle to negotiate before entering the pub.
We acknowledge that you might be not doing anything wrong but compared to our other experiences, you fell below the standard.

This was the first time eating out since lockdown, and it just couldn’t have been any better! So well-organised - we felt totally and absolutely safe. Lovely staff as always..... It may be the fact that we haven’t been able to go there for four months, but the food was wonderful. Mind you, it always is...... Just such a lovely way to celebrate being out again - thank you so much!

Very disappointing visit to the Pigs. Very average food, the chicken was so dry and veg either burnt or uncooked. Food didn’t all arrive together, and hoards of very noisy children charging around the place. (I have children too) sadly we won’t be returning.

We have been to the pigs many times before for food and always enjoy it. This time was no different, food and atmosphere good as always. Only little thing was that the piggy pieces had changed, whilst we enjoyed the majority of the new offerings we were not keen on the crispy pigs ears, to us they were chewy and we said it was a bit like overcooked squid.

I Always Have high expectations of the Pigs and I as usual my expectations were met fully.
Just one small point, it would have been perfect if we had been able to use the ‘Dairy’ as it is always quieter in there and we found it a little difficult to hold our conversations in a very loud noise level.
