We went here on a Saturday night and although busy the service was fine. I started by having a pint of one of their very local beers (Old Spot I think) which was very drinkable indeed. The interior is quite trendy looking but split up into different rooms so even when busy you don't feel as if it is mass... More

The restaurant offers good food and friendly service on a very pleasant environment. There is very good parking with very good seating on a rustic theme. It's hearty local fare which is generally seasonal. It caters well for families and is a go to restaurant if you want a good meal. Portions are generous and I have never left feeling... More

Group of us came today for a bite of lunch with the children, asked to be sat next to play room. To my unknown knowledge it is being refurbished. They still say us down where it normally is and even put the heater on for us as well as reserving us another table as well incase we didn't want to... More

We have passed this place many times and in spite of my wife's wishes I was reluctant to eat in a place called 'Pigs'. However we took the plunge and was in for a pleasanr surprise.

Dear RestingEngland, Thank you for your review. Firstly I am glad you enjoyed your experience and are looking to return. We are very fortunate to have such great produce on our door step, mussels being a favorite amongst others, so we try and allow the natural, wonderful flavones shine through. I will pass the feedback regarding the tart on to... More

Came here for my partners 30th, and wasn't disappointed, I just can't believe it's taken me so long to try it. They even went as far as decorating the table, which was a really nice touch. The food was amazing, and the staff so helpful and friendly too. Would highly recommend, and shall be returning for Sunday lunch soon!

I have to say I think this place has gone down hill after my last visit. We went there today for a birthday celebration where there were about 15 of us. I'd give the roast a 4/10, potatoes were rock hard and the Yorkshire pudding was burnt. For the price you pay you'd expect something a bit better. A member... More

Dear rosierichard33, I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your lunch with us. I am disappointed to hear that your potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were overdone, I will pass this on to the kitchen team immediately. I will however challenge your timings on the burger, upon realizing that there was one meal missing we set about fixing... More

Good range of well kept ales and wonderful selection of Gin. We came with family for Sunday Lunch and have to say good was disappointing. Could've done with a third slice of beef and the roast potatoes were exceptionally overdone. Served without horseradish which we then had to request and wait almost 10 minutes for. That said beef was nicely... More

Dear The13thEarl, I am very sorry to hear you found our usually very popular Sunday roast so average.

We have been to the Pigs several times as we always spend our holidays in Norfolk. We were a party of 11 and my husband and I recommended the Pigs as our holiday night out.

Greeted with open arms as soon as we entered, food came quickly and was absolutely delicious! Really impressed with everything, all the waiting staff were super lovely, I even heard one waitress finding out the football scores for another table.. what a service! The place looks gorgeous and can't wait to return! Will highly recommend!
