We have visited this restaurant lots of times as it's quite local to us. It is definitely our favourite local. Food always hot, delicious and well presented. Staff lovely and friendly. Not the cheapest place, but well worth it.

Spent 2nights at the Inn & had a really enjoyable stay. Bedrooms lovely & well equipped . Food was excellent with varied menu & excellent wine. The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming. Will definitely return.

Thank you for a great... More

Cosy, clean and a fab staff..this B&B and pub has it all! The Ugly Bug Inn was the perfect accommodation for a relaxing weekend in the country. Our room was spacious, clean and cosy -- I was very impressed with the suite we stayed in! The staff was very proactive in making sure we were comfortable and were having a... More

The food is excellent, there is a great range of choice and lots of things are locally sourced. I rarely eat vegetables in a restaurant as I am very picky about how they are cooked but here they are cooked to perfection. The hosts are very welcoming but if you're not a fan of the Fawlty Towers humour maybe best... More

The Ugly Bug is a bit remote - you wouldn't want to walk there in the winter - but I am told that John, the owner, is usually happy to drop diners back at Barnham Broom ( where we stayed ) after dinner. The pub itself is a delight. The staff were friendly, humorous and helpful. The food was excellent... More

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
