We have just come back from a weekend in Norfolk staying at the Uggly Bug Inn. The room was immaculate and cozy in line with the traditional feel of the Pub and Restaurant. We had a very nice quiet meal with outstanding attention of all the staff. The food was brilliant and my Husband is still telling the world about... More

I'm not one to generally review or even complain - I just pay up and get on with it. However, we recently went for a meal with friends to The Ugly Bug. I have been before and thoroughly enjoyed my meal, but this time was different. The waiter was somewhat unfriendly and perhaps dutiful at most. Our starters and mains... More

Just had 3 nights at the ugly bug inn and as always it provides the home comforts you enjoy when being away from home. The food is excellent with such a varied menu you wouldn't get bored even if you stayed for a week. The portions are huge, the food is wholesome and tasty. The rooms are immaculate and the... More

Absolutely fantastic choice of venue to celebrate our Mums Birthday. Food was excellent in presentation and quality and both owners and staff were lovely too - especially as we had 3 children under the age of 3 in our party. Will definitely be visiting again - absolutely first class.

Warm welcome with friendly hosts and great accommodation. An added bonus is the restaurant with imaginative food and a good range of beers and wines. Would certainly like to return and will highly recommend.

We went with a couple of friends on a Saturday night. The menu choices were very varied and extensive. It was really difficult to choose! The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Good range of real ales. Will definitely go back. The owners are lovely and all staff very attentive. Alfie the dog is great too!

We left it until our last day to try out The Ugly Bug Inn but heartily wish we had gone there on day one. Very friendly owners with their equally friendly dog and cat! Food was delicious and very reasonable and service excellent, pity they are not nearer Newbury!

Taken to the Ugly Bug as a birthday treat by my daughter. We were greeted by a very friendly staff. After getting our drink we were shown to the lounge were our order for meal was taken. When meal was ready taken to our table in their well layed out dining room. The food was great, well presented and hot.... More

We booked in here as it was local to a wedding we were attending. Having heard from another guest attending the wedding that their booking had been cancelled just a week before visiting by the pub owners I was rather worried that ours would be too - but it appears they only over booked by one room that night....I'm still...

This is a difficult place to categorise. The first thing to note is that it is quite remote, there is virtually nothing within walking distance, but on the other hand it is well placed if you are going to drive. It is a country inn, but it is quite modern in many respects. The rooms are excellent, and very comfortable.... More
