Stayed overnight on a business trip, very warm welcome. Beautiful location and the food was amazing. Bed was comfortable so had a really good night sleep, fresh for work in the morning. Overall a good location and venue for what I needed.

We visited last night for my mums birthday but never got past the door! Would not accommodate us with my two month old daughter saying no prams allowed, they were rude and clearly stupid enough to turn away a large party. The pushchair had nothing to do with it they are just not child friendly , avoid do not give... More

We visited the Ugly Bug for a meal on Father's Day, having checked the menu out online. If a little outdated and poorly presented, the Menu online seemed decent. When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted. The staff seemed welcoming, but passive-aggressive signs dotted throughout the pub regarding card payment and publicity seemed a little off-putting and quite hostile. The... More

We were booked in by our hotel however I had seen the establishment on the internet prior to the visit. We arrived and were welcomed by the very flamboyant owner who proceeded to tell us that his rooms were better than our 4* hotel !!!!! We availed ourselves of a couple of pints of the local Adnams Ale which went... More

Went with some friends for an evening meal, having never been there before. We were made very welcome by the landlord, who greeted us like old friends. The decor and layout makes for a very relaxing atmosphere and wraps itself round you. The menu was quite extensive and certainly not over priced. The food was excellent, well presented and very...

A very good ambient with lovely background music. The service was absolutely fabulous and not too crowded. It may not be a good place if you don't like animals, as the dog and the cat walk freely in the premises. They also have Plenty of parking spaces.

Very friendly and welcoming proprieter. Extensive menu, all well priced. Large portions and very tasty. I had the mixed grill and although I was unsure about the blood pudding and pork sausage, John assured me it was worth trying and sure enough it was very meaty and not at all what I was expecting. My wife had the duck which... More

We were exhibiting at the Norfolk Showground over the weekend, so rather than suffer the excesses of the Premier Inn I found the Ugly Bug Inn on the web, so booked a couple nights there instead. Being less than 10 minutes from the show was helpful but, to be honest, if it had been an hour away it would have... More
