We had driven past this pub a few years ago and finally decided to drive out for a Sunday lunch. Great to find there is an "adults only" dining room as well as the bigger dining area that welcomes children. Pleased also that we'll behaved dogs also welcome. We both decided on the pork belly Sunday roast. It was extremely... More

We paid our third visit to The Pigs in early January and it keep getting better and better! The locally sourced food is both delicious and creative, all in a lovely relaxed and informal pub atmosphere. We started with a selection of "Iffits" - a Norfolk tribute to tapas-style dishes. Crispy pigs ears were delicious, as was the potted pork... More

Dear Gail H, Thank you for such a lovely review of our food and team! I can absolutely appreciate it can get very chilly during the winter here and as much as we do try and keep the opening and closing of doors to a minimum this can get very hard to police. As you may have seen via our... More

Ate here with family. Service was really good, food was really good. We have a dog and was able to buy him some biscuits too. It was special to be able to take him too. The menu was good and the atmosphere was lovely. Plenty of parking. Suggest booking as it was busy.

We just happened to be going to the coast and just driving about trying to find somewhere. This looked lovely (and those foodie fans will know if I say it reminded me of the old Ram at Tivetshall) and the car park was busy so thought it must be popular so decided to eat there. The staff were so welcoming... More

Dear cherrypotts, What a wonderful review, thank you. Our Sunday lunch is extremely popular and definitely worth a try, if you visit between 12 and 3 you will have the chance to sample our pudding table. It is always great to hear such high praise and especially rewarding when first time customers are so keen to return. Make sure you... More

Went here on New Years Day for Sunday lunch, scotch egg starter was great, smoked salmon starter was fine but nothing special. Belly pork main course was tasty, very tender, melted in the mouth, Too full for dessert. Nice place, good choice of interesting beers, friendly service and good value.

Dear csquire4, Thank you very much for your review. It is great that you enjoyed so much of your visit but such a shame that we let ourselves down on one iffit. The specials board is an opportunity for us to trial potential dishes for the next menu change and we take all feedback onboard regarding these. I am very... More

Will start with positives: very family friendly with a decent sized playroom for the little ones (we have 2 under 5). Breastfeeding friendly (sooo sorry to the snooty cow complaining about breastfeeding in an earlier review). Lovely decor, especially at this time of year and great atmosphere. Its therefore regretful to say that the food was just bang average. Minimal... More

We travel a long way to eat at the Pigs and are never disappointed. The staff, service and food are always great. My reason for only giving 4 stars is that a few items where off the menu after a busy Sunday. This I guess can't be helped. However we had the 8hr roasted lamb to share and loved it.... More

Dear John F, Thank you for your lovely review. It is great to hear that you return to eat with us despite the distance and continually enjoy your experience. Unfortunately if a Sunday proves to be a lot busier than expected then due to the nature of fresh food there can be a few items that sell out and may... More

They get all the basics right but the best things are their starters - Iffits where you can choose a really interesting mix of small starter pots to share while you want for the main course. and if you grow you can trade your produce for theirs
