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.

We ate at the pigs a few years ago while on holiday and found the food to be outstanding. Sadly upon our return the food was mediocre and certainly not worth a premium pricing. It was disappointing as the children in particular were really keen to return as they remembered it so well. Has there been a change of ownership? Or has its success led to some slackening of standards? We won't be returning next
time.

Nice food but shame about all the flies. This was a problem on previous visits too unfortunately as it spoilt the meal

The sharing pavlova was also way too excessive for 2 people as advertised

Norfolk iffits as starter was brilliant, great idea and wonderful tasty choices, we chose 5 which was probably a bit too much as a starter but great fun and so tasty none the less.
Both had plate pie(steak) for main which also was very tasty although I did have the usual choice envy when I saw the fish other diners had chosen.. Looked delicious

As a group of 4 we decided to star we a selection of Iffits and then straight into the pudding club.
We ate early and the pub was fairly quiet to start with but livened up as the lunch progresses. It was lovely to see that dogs are allowed in the dining area.
The food was really good value for money and there was plenty of it. We shared 8 dishes of Iffits between 4 and found that we left some of it because there was so much.
The pudding club was a delightful experience! There were loads of choices but the favoured ones from our group was the apple crumble and the sticky toffee pudding.
There are a couple of issues that could be considered by the proprietors and that is the hot puddings really should be served hot and not tepid as they were. The hot plate didn't seem up to the job. This is in no way a complaint otherwise we would have mentioned it when dining but hopefully something that can be improved upon. Lastly, the Bakewell tart was cooked properly and was rather soggy. As I have already stated the last two things certainly didn't spoil our visit to the Pigs and we will definitely be going back

Was a really nice place for a family meal. Food options were good, decor and ambience (despite being the only ones in there initially) were very nice. Service was pleasant but was just missing a few small things that would have stepped it up to being exceptional. For example, we weren’t told about the specials/ where specials board was, there could have been a bit more interaction with the kids as felt ever so slightly like they were an inconvenience, and the waitress that brought out our food was a little grumpy and was oblivious to the fact that she was holding a plate with a jug of hot gravy over the head of my 11month old daughter!
Sounds nit picking and overall we really enjoyed our meal but these little details to me are always the difference between a good and a fantastic experience.
Thanks

The Iffits (tapas) dishes were delicious. Good sized portions. I would recommend the haggis fritters and lamb skewers.
The slow roasted lamb shoulder for two people was huge but so good!

Highly recommended.

We have visited The Pigs on a few occasions before and found it to be excellent.
This time we felt it was not up to expectations.
There were a lots of flies indoors, which were a nuisance and we landing on the cutlery which was laid out on the tables.
The barman/ waiters attitude was matter of fact and not that welcoming.
I was unable to have the salad I had chosen, and was not offered an alternative ( one of the ingredients had arrived frozen !)
I was not asked if I wanted ice and lemon in my second drink, it was just brought to me.
I had asked for additional cream with my dessert and it came as a substitute for the ice cream.
Over all we felt the food did not meet our expectations. We have eaten out at many Norfolk pubs and restaurants, and felt The Pigs had lost its shine.

Warm welcome from the staff. Excellent choice on the menu.
Pricing good.
Very pleased to be seated in the quiet dining room as the area where the Sunday puddings were served was very noisy.
Having the puddings on two sides of an entrance/exit was very difficult with people either trying to get a pudding or people pushing through to get to the doors. Puddings looked messed about with. Staff need to keep an eye on items and keep them looking nice. They tasted good but diners had made a mess of the display. After the peaceful dining area we had sat in this area seemed chaotic and noisy. Only downside. Couldn’t puddings be put on table to the right of the bar? Or stop people using the doors whilst Sunday puddings are being self served.

Haven't been to the pigs in over 5 years, boy am i regretting it now.
Well priced freshly cooked food.
Served quickly by polite bubbly staff.
The chefs even made up a toffee sauce especially for my wife to go with her pudding even though they weren't offering any at the time.
Will definitely go again, and again....
