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

I had to do a little searching to find vacancies for a Saturday night at the end of August so I was not really sure what to expect when I managed to find two rooms at The Ugly Bug Inn. Were very pleasantly surprised. The inn looks a little old fashioned but the rooms are nicely set out with huge,... More

A very rude patronising woman called me just a week and a day before I was supposed to visit to say the twin room I booked early Summer was no longer available. The only weak vague explanation I had was it was because it was a twin!? She would do what she could but couldn't confirm until 2 days before... More

Our first visit to The UB following friends' recommendations. A charming welcome from the host, a relaxed and warm atmosphere, and a comprehensive menu. The food was of good quality, well served, and the house wine was very drinkable. We would go again.

First impressions are "what a lovely looking pub", then you notice the enormous ugly green pub sign, what an eyesore to put on the side of such a beautiful building! Then we saw the list of rules and regulations on the front door! Very dark and dreary inside, no atmosphere felt at all. Made our way to the bar and,... More

Stayed for 2 nights and had dinner both nights. Rooms clean and comfortable. Bit of a problem with TV reception in our room but this is Norfolk ! Breakfast cooked to order, dinner good choices with local meat and fish being used. It is rural but busy which says a lot.Good value. Free wi-fi in room. Will stay again.

Room was very good , very clean and the setting very quiet . Restaurant had an excellent varied menu and generous portions, although we only ate once as they had an event night on one of the nights which we did not fancy as we wanted a quiet meal and we also wanted to try other establishments . We found... More
