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.

Regrettably we were very disappointed. The service was awful, the food was very poor and the starter and main course were delivered to our table with approximately a 5minutes between. The restaurant was not busy but we were made to feel very unwelcome and unimportant. We will not be rushing back. Simply ruined what should have been a very special birthday night for my wife.

We chose the roast beef which was a generous plateful. The beef was difficult to cut as the knives are really dull so we had to pull it apart. Veg was tasty and the Yorkshire pudding was good.

This is now our third visit to the Pigs at Edgefield, each time we have found the service provided to be exemplary with happy and helpful staff, the ambience is lovely with a relaxed feel. It is becoming our special treat when in need of a little ‘Pick me Up’.

We did not have a pleasant experience at the Pigs. Very disappointed as it came highly recommended. The service took a long, long time and I felt we were forgotten by the waiting staff. The starters were average. When the main finally arrived it was really not pleasant. I ordered the sea bass special thinking it would be the healthy option and it tastes deep-fried. My son’s fish and chips were highly overcooked and inedible. The only redeeming element of the meal was the stack of large onion rings which were delicious. Not in a hurry to go back. ☹️

We visited as a family with friends and The Pigs was the perfect choice. We were greeted enthusiastically at the bar and the great service continued throughout our visit
I’ve given 5 stars as the children’s menu offered a choice of main course with the option to add a mixture of vegetable sides from 1 to 5, which I think is pretty unique and a really simple way to encourage consumption whilst limiting waste. Alongside this the food for all our group was interesting, tasty and well presented.

Whilst the overall experience was ok the pigs fell short in two areas for us. The service at dinner was not good , the side order of roast potatoes was slow coming (we were well into our meal which was already cool when served, when the potatoes arrived).
The second area was that we could not use the jacuzzi because it was already fully booked for the day we arrived and we were told that the following day was a spa day and that it would not be available. This was very dissapointing and rather dampened the overall experience.

Booked this as an overnight stay as a birthday present for my girlfriend. Upon arrival we were advised that we couldn’t use the spa facilities although it was advertised as included within our stay. We then also did not have any hot water in our room. The staff were very unhelpful about the matter and said there was nothing they could do about it as our room was on the same boiler as the restaurant and it would take half an hour or so to kick in. There were no rooms available to swap and we were advised we would still be charged if we were to leave and not stay. After an hour of asking about the hot water I went down again because it was still cold, again nothing they could do. Then 5 minutes before our dinner reservation we got a knock on the door saying that they have been in touch with their engineer and there has been a fault on the boiler. At this point we had both had cold showers. Then whilst having our dinner we had a half hour wait for the drinks which we ordered and our breakfast the next morning took over an hour to be served. I am appalled by the lack of customer service throughout our stay and the lack of empathy they showed to our situation. After looking forward to staying there through hearing great things through friends and family, I would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

Nice setting, warm welcome and it all started so well!! Initial experience was great, pleasant staff got our drinks order in quickly and taken to our table. Ordered starters which came quickly and eaten with gusto very acceptable. It was after 3-15 so the lunch time rush had finished but then we had to wait for nearly 40 minutes!! Managed to get the attention of a waitress, who sort of seemed interested in our predicament, she said she would check and within a few minutes our main courses arrived! Food was good, but no check back and the wife was desperate for another drink! All but when the main courses had been eaten managed to get a waiter attention and got my wife a drink. Same waiter offered us dessert options, it was rude not to, again very acceptable, the best treacle tart served with lemon clotted cream I’ve had in ages! Just disappointing the wait for the main meals and the lack of interest re the predicament took the shin off otherwise an enjoyable afternoon!

The Pigs is an absolute gem of a restaurant! The staff are friendly and welcoming, there's a lovely mix of spaces to sit, service is fast without feeling rushed (even on a busy day) and the menu is always varied, fresh, and enticing. My fiancé and I have been coming here for years (it's actually where he proposed) and we'll definitely be coming back.

As the veggie burger was not available it meant the mains was a mix of iffits. Can’t understand why there would be so little choice. Wouldn’t recommend to friends if there is a vegetarian or vegan amongst them.

Unfortunately our food was 50 mins in so we had a lengthy wait. It was also over cooked. Sausages were like rubber in the beef sausages and mash. The children’s meals look lovely and the homemade fish fingers went down a treat. Maybe they should make an Adults version of that. I’d get it. The cost is a touch high with beef sausages and mash and onion gravy costing a whopping £13. No veg included. The children’s meals were the same size and a lot cheaper and more appealing.
We will go again to give them the benefit of doubt but I think they need to rethink what they cook for value and size.

The food yes it was outstanding, with the money, noise was high due to the amount of children, think maybe a separate restaurant for hotel guests would be a good idea.
