Please note that tables booked outdoors and unheated and uncovered.

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.

Ate here last night and at breakfast today having stayed overnight.
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Outstanding level of customer service and we were made to feel very welcome.
Food was beautiful…. It was nice to have the option of eating outside on the terrace too.
We will definitely return

Service was excellent, however the food was not what we were expecting.
Haven chosen the beetroot burger, the bun was soggy and the burger fell apart. The other main dish was port burger which was nice. The starters were also disappointing, the onion tart again was under cooked and the potted pork was not as expected.

Dessert was very poor, no taste to it at all.
Very quiet not much atmosphere. I had a 2nd booking which I cancelled and booked elsewhere

Good food, reasonably priced with large portions.
Tables were dirty and general ambience lets it down.
Service was pleasant and prompt despite all staff being relatively young.

Yes would recommend but menu very select. Not sure if it’s down to restrictions and keeping it simple. It would be nice to see a selection of steaks but that’s just me. But can’t fault the staff on anything or the food. And with Covid staff doing an amazing job
Overall very satisfied customers

A good start with our order taken by a friendly waitress. Then a long wait for our drinks, with waitresses going back and forward with no-one coming to check we had been served. Husband had to go to bar to remind them, with no sign of our drinks being prepared. Eventually they came AFTER we got our food, thus spoiling our cocktails experience. First excuse was they were busy, and then admitted a mistake. No offer of a discount. Main courses good, fish and chips and ham and chicken pie, though husband's veg a bit al dente. Shared rice pudding was very watery and not very hot. We weren't told about the pudding of the day from the board near the bar. Busy waiting staff, all very young with no sign of a more mature person in charge. Had to pay at bar, and not given a slip to check the details of the bill. Disappointing.

Lovely lunch today, staff super friendly and attentative. Food cooked freshly but from order to table was less than 15 minutes. Been here a few times now and it never disappoints. Tables and chairs all cleaned within a minute or 2 of people vacating them. Nice to see a business slowly getting back on its feet. Keep up the good work all!

Nice venue to look at but poor food. We had whitebait to start which was significantly overdone. Brisket for main - the sides and gravy were lovely but the brisket was tasteless with more fat than meat. We also had a chicken salad that was caked in salt making it hard to eat. Table and floor were sticky and needed a good clean.

Nice service and polite staff (food seemed to be a bit rushed out) and G&T was good.

Overall - trying to be a gastropub but food needs improving first for the price they charge.

The menu is very limited but the main meal I had was lovely. The half pint dessert I felt was overpriced considering how small it was. There was a nice selection of drinks.

The service was poor. We waited so long to be served even the table next to us mentioned how long it was. I then had to approach the waiting staff to give us a dessert menu and then again for the bill.

Great play area for the kids...everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks.
Great friendly attentive service.

Some of the sides were a little expensive for the size of them. Annoyingly how some meals came with chips etc and some didn't.

Birthday meal. Waitress very kindly arranged for a Happy Birthday dessert. Main course was a generous helping and tasted delicious. Very impressed with the cloakroom and quirky decor. Will definitely be visiting again.
