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.

Really cannot fault this pub. It is one of my favourites in Norfolk.

The food is always good and the staff are attentive. Reasonably priced as well. What more do you really want?

The breakfast experience was excellent, I liked the fact that tea and coffee were via a help your self station and unlimited, meaning you could enjoy a good cup of tea and return for more as you required. The selection of food available at the buffet table was impressive, the granola bars were a favourite of mine, so moist and filled with fruit and nuts. I had the cooked breakfast, which was perfect and my partner had the best filled bacon sandwich she has ever seen :)
To quote a famous Sci-fi film - we'll be back

On arrival we were left clueless of where to go and get singed in, until an actual customer guided us round the corner to the desk but this wasn’t helped by the lack of instruction and members of staff just walking past us. Once we eventually got signed in we were given our room key and told to enjoy our stay with no room guidance of what facilties we had or how to use any of the contents. The room was lovely and the bathroom was beautiful with heated flooring, rainfall shower and a bath that could easily fit two people. We also had a meal booked that night and once ready we walked downstairs to the dining room and were greeted in the same manor as to when we first arrived, no one was there to give us guidance to a table or book us in until I had to stop a waiter. The food was satisfactory but very overpriced for what was actually served. The over nights stay was quiet and very relaxing and were able to have a nice long rest. Once waken and dressed we walked downstairs again for breakfast where we were actually greeted by three members of staff standing around in the bar area where we read a board to say “take and seat and staff will come round with the breakfast menu- in the meantime help yourself to teas and coffees” which we did, we went to go sit down where we were seated the night before which the staff was aware of but it almost felt like they deliberately let us go wrong before they could correct us in the other direction to the breakfast room. Once seated the breakfast was lovely but yet again well overpriced.
When back at our room we gathered all our belongings and went down to Sign out and again with no clear instruction on where to go, so we tried at same place where we were able to sign in at, the member of staff seemed to of been on her phone and wasn’t interested in giving us any attention.
Overall the stay was satisfactory but well overpriced and would definitely recommend on giving their customers much more information and guidance in the future.

Really loved the casserole we had. It was extremely tasty.
We dined at lunchtime (2 adults) I liked how families with toddlers were in another area as we wanted a quiet lunch and a chat. Although one of those families had a dog which would not stop barking and this spoilt the ambience (not the pubs fault).
The wood burner made the pub toasty warm and overall a lovely experience.
Tables nicely spaced and diners were not on top of each other.

Had a delicious three course Sunday dinner with our 21 month old twins. Anyone with toddlers will know how hard eating out with them can be but the staff at the pigs were genuinely great and welcoming. There's a fabulous play room which kept the twins occupied between courses!
The good was delicious , lovely cozy atmosphere. I honestly cant recommend it highly enough.

Lovely Sunday lunch - service very good, food good, a little disappointed in the pudding table, the sticky toffee pudding wasn't sticky and didn't taste of toffee, just a dry sponge really, toffee sauce had run out and while they refilled the pudding plate, they forgot the sauce, crumble was nice - but more crumble than fruit. I wouldn't both with the pudding table next time - however, as value for money goes - cant complain, you get the pudding table tagged onto the main course for a few pounds. I'll stick to my favorite - cheese -next time. can't fault the main course however.

Superb find. Outstanding accommodation and food. Staff very professional but very relaxed and friendly. Look forward to a return visit. Hopefully we will be able to book some treatments next time as we booked late this didn't fit into our schedule . Stayed two nights probably put on weight as food was so good, Extremely good portions. Great area for games and/or children at back of restaurant. Child and dog friendly.

This was our third visit to the pigs and probably was not as good as before.
Small things, the pulled pork in a bun, the bun was greasy. I swapped mash to chips with my pie and got about 8 chips.
Butter for the bread was rock hard and so was not spreadable. The little things count. The food was average compared to previous visits.

First 3 photos the toilet wall dirty second photo the plaster which should be rubbed down painted the third is the towel radiator which I have a blister and it’s very sore should be a warning on how hot it is for the price of things this shouldn’t be like this! And some nice pictures as we made it our night even though you don’t get enough time in the wallow either!

My wife and I had a fabulous break at the Pigs for her birthday treat. The original spa room was lovely. Shower room was huge and the water was always hot. ( not the case in some hotels we have stayed in) The bed was luxurious and huge.
As for the sauna and outside bath with the TV inset off the room. That was spot on too. We did not go outside and use the fire pit.
Food was fantastic and a good choice. My wife ate off the menu. I ate off the special board both nights.
Drinks and wine was not overly expensive either.
The breakfasts were very good and again a varied choice to be had.
I must mention the staff who were also lovely. By that I mean everyone, chambermaids, receptionists, bar and restaurant staff were all friendly, polite, eager to be helpful and just all went that extra mile. Whoever is training them has achieved high standards and a very good team ethos. They were all happy people.

Such a great place to go to get away for a few days! Lovely Customer care, helpful staff. The spa suits are absolutely amazing, so clean and fresh. The bedding and towels are spotless. There’s Bluetooth speakers in the suana, Steam room and around the place so you can just relax and chill out, listening to your own music. Can also bring your own drink and snacks if you want to eat whilst watching tv in bed! So chill
Would highly recommend to a couple for a surprise get away

The children’s fish fingers still had the fish skin on. Not what I would expect and not easy for child to pick the fish out. The main and chip fish batter was Slightly undercooked and a little soggy. The belly of pork was lovely.

Lovely place, went for New Years Eve meal. 3 of us had steak, tasted great, but not a lot of colour to the plate, could have done with some veg or at least a side salad.
The place itself is great, but the play room you do have to pay for most things that the children want to play, so could work out costly, but a great idea. The atmosphere was ok, but expected it to be a bit more up beat and was going to stay to bring on the new year, but as a restaurant it was nearly empty at 12 , great food though and worth a visit. Would definitely like to do the spa next time
