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.

Had a loverly meal for two the pork was to die for the only thing was the deserts where not to my taste just needs a couple of simple deserts like chocolate fudge cake or plain cheese cake but it’s beautiful

Roast partridge was chewy and undercooked. Pub food pretended to be at high quality.
Prices charged don't justify quality provided.
Disappointing. However, worth stopping for a pint there.

We went here to celebrate my name day...the atmosphere was great, quality food, maybe the only bad point was that our table was exactly in front of the kitchen and all the smell from there was very strong at one point.But, overall we felt very looked after, great.

The Pigs has a lovely cosy atmosphere, no loud music just conversation. Service is efficient and friendly. Food was excellent (absolutely piping hot), portion sizes excellent. The choice for non meat eaters is good, I'm looking forward to trying something different on my next visit. Would definitely recommend to friends.

The Pigs is one of our favourite restaurants to go for lunch with our kids. The food is very high quality pub food using local ingredients. On Sunday there’s a ‘pudding table’ allowing you to sample a number of different desserts. The outdoor play area is great for children and the addition of pool and shuffleboard in the playroom is great, meaning we could enjoy an after lunch coffee and play a few games whilst the children played.

We chose ‘The Pigs’ at Edgefield to celebrate my mum’s 80th birthday with all the family. This was our first visit & was most impressed with all aspects. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was outstanding. Games room was great fun for the grandchildren. We look forward to our next visit & would certainly recommend to our friends & family!

Very slow service, but not busy so no excuse. Fish said it had vegetables but in real life it had about 3leaves of shrivelled spinach and a sauce that tasted like neat tomato puree. No one advised we should order extra vegetables but at the price charged we shouldn't have had to. No water offered with meal. At the end we found out we were served 2 different sized spritzas but weren't asked what we would like. Overrated. Very poor birthday treat.

Hello,


Unfortunately we were welcome by an awful stench in the car park due to the pump station at the rear of the pub, directly adjacent to the kids play area.
Set up and food were fine. Service too.
Dessert buffet disappointing. not a lot there.
After the meal, we headed to the play area, which was inveded by the stench, not the most delightful way of finishing a meal ...

Again, the memory of the smell leaves a bitter taste...

The whole experience at The Pigs is outstanding - that's why we use it so much. The fish pie and smoked haddock are well worth a try and hope they don't come off the menu for a while.

Lots of good looking menu options, everybodyin our group enjoyed their mains, none of us had a starters.
Smoked haddock was very nice with a poached egg..
The pork burger was great with terrific onion rings, chips could have been cooked a little longer as were a little hard inside.
The chicken and leek pie was very nice indeed.
Only two of us had a sweet.
Ice cream, well, can’t really go wrong with that but...
The warmed apple crumble with custard... the “warmed” crumble was as hot as the sun, far too hot realistically and the custard, it was warm, lumpy and, although I did ask for lashings of it, what I got was the smallest cream jug you could ever imagine (think of a thimble and you’ll be close) which hardly covered the crumble, so in essence, the main, excellent, the crumble and custard, a real let down, sadly...

I was rather underwhelmed, except when it came to the bill! I'm sure Pigs could do very much better with the food, which is basically pub-grub. Not that there's anything wrong with that except the expectations created anticipate something a cut above.
The kids absolutely loved the outside play area and games room, which kept them entertained and gave us a bit of a stress free break. The kids menu was also well received.

Absolutely love this place!! A real gem!!
The atmosphere is just great, the staff are all so friendly and cannot do enough for you.
The food is delicious, especially the Norfolk Iffits, which is like a Norfolk tapas and allows you to sample small portions of lots of different dishes.
We've stayed once in a Spa Suite, which was out of this world, and have had just lunch once too, but we will be back lots in the future.
They accept Norfolk passports too, which is an added bonus and can make a big difference to your bill.

The food and service was very good but the area we sat in was characterless. Price was good because it was Norfolk Restaurant Week, seems expensive otherwise, cost of drinks was reasonable. Would go back but would want to sit at the other, original part of the restaurant!

Consistently good. Quality food at a fair price. We regularly come here and have never been disappointed(well, except for when they run out of lamb). Don't be in a rush, and if you can manage three courses then you have a heartier appetite than I. And I'm not a little bloke.

Food was excellent, I could not fault it.
Staff were attentive although not clued up on the menu. I ordered Ham Hock Terrine for starter and was presented a scotch egg.
I told the staff I had ordered Ham Hock to which she returned to the kitchen and came back again with the scotch egg telling me “the ham hock was in the scotch egg” I then asked to see a menu to prove to her that there was a scotch egg on the menu and pointed out the ham hock terrine I had ordered. My husband ate his starter whilst I then waited 10 minutes for mine to be prepared.

Although the restaurant was busy, we were never forgotten and the staff were 😊 and chatty. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely venue to meet two very dear friends. Food was a change from what I would normally choose, but was absolutely fantastic and flavoursome. Recommend the chocolate torte! Thank you.
