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.

After hearing a lot about this place just felt a little disappointed to be honest portion size small for the money food nothing speacial a lot of places closer to norwich which can demand a bigger price with a bit more wow factor

The first time of being there and had been given some great feedback from family and friends who had been there. But me and my partner were very disappointed with the service we had received. The restaurant wasn't overly busy, yet we had an hour wait for starters and hour wait for main. Also when asked for a drink we didn't received it until we asked again. No apology was given for the long service or drink mistake. The starters were excellent but was a bit disappointed with the main course. Would like to try again and hoping for a different out come.

Stayed here for a birthday celebration after hearing some good reviews & we were not disappointed. Lovely establishment which has obviously had a lot of care & thought given to the layout, rooms & theme. Staff were really friendly, nothing was too much trouble & they all seemed like they really enjoyed working there. We booked a Spa suite which was outstanding, really clean with excellent facilities. The food was first class. Highly recommended as a venue if you are looking to treat yourselves. Really looking forward to a return trip. Special thanks to all the staff.

Lovely restaurant featuring locally sourced ingredients and fresh food. Limited vegetarian options but as the name suggests, plenty of focus on pork as well as some fish and steak dishes. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable, prices were reasonable and atmosphere was very relaxed. We stayed in the hotel but would recommend The Pigs even if you're only looking for an evening meal or Sunday lunch

I have been previously and it was alot better than recently. I thought the food was pretty average, the chips were all over cooked. For the price of the meal I thought it was too over priced. Other than that the restaurant was nice.

It was an average experience. I like the food , but quite expensive even with a Norfolk Passport. A meal for 4 , including a couple of drinks each, only one person had a starter, came to £125.
Not the sort of price I would want to be paying that often !
Ok for occasional meal with friends - if each was paying for themselves but I would say a bit expensive for an average family of 4.

The staff were friendly and professional. The food was home made and delicious and the portions were of a good size. We didn't have to wait very long for our food and the waiting staff were always on hand to take drinks orders or to clear the table. Would definitly recommend to friends and family and will be back again.

Celebrating my dads birthday - the venue was a surprise to him and as soon as we arrived we were all really impressed, including him!!
Friendly staff, warm welcome, excellent food and nice atmosphere.
Have been a few times now and will definitely be returning soon.
Also great value for money, especially as we had signed up for the Norfolk passport.
Could not recommend enough.
Just got to try the spa now 😁

Service was really slow.
Mains was average.
The pudding we complained about as it was not edible - strawberries in jelly. The response was you do know it’s champagne, yes we did however it was foul and not edible. No apologies and still charged in full.
In total for a main and pudding - 3.5 hour service!!!

I'd heard very good things about The Pigs but i must admit i was rather disappointed by our experience.
Some of the food was good but some not. The scotch egg had an overcooked yolk. The pork belly and beans; the pork belly was incredibly salty, as was the sauce that came with the beans, not haricot as i was expecting but mixed beans (kidney, bortlotti etc.) which hadn't been cooked properly and were still tough. The crackling still had hairs on it. The gravy that was in the pie of the day was lovely, however, the gravy that came on the side was different and had flavours of bisto.
We had several servers throughout our meal, one was lovely, the others pleasant but not attentive. We had to wait a long time for our drinks to be brought to the table, apart from when the food was delivered or plates cleared no-one came to check if further drinks were required or anything was needed so we kept having to flag down staff. I must admit that i have never been to a restaurant, where when the plates are being cleared, you aren't asked if you enjoyed your meal. Quite strange.

The service and setting was amazing, felt a little let down on the steak dish available but obviously the place serves alot of pork...hence the name!! My partner loved his dinner - pork t-bone. He had some to bring home too!!! Would definitely go again, on another note, we also stayed and we were gutted there was no black pudding available for breakfast although they happily replaced it with another sausage. Nothing is a problem for the staff and they don't pester or hoover which is much appreciated.
