“Great find for good food after country walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Made the most of a sunny September day to explore Nesscliffe Country Park. we came back to village with tired dog and decided to have a drink at the Three Pidgeons. The garden was a sun trap so we stopped for lunch and were really pleased we did. menu choices were really good with interesting choices and locally sourced quality produce. their ciabbatta sandwich and chips options are well priced and great quality. did not have room for pud so a good excuse to call again especially as it's dog friendly too with water bowl provided.

“We just popped in....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We called into The Old Three Pigeons on our way back to Norwich from Wales, so needed somewhere to break the journey and get some sustenance.
We were very pleasantly surprised. The service was extremely good and all staff couldn't have been friendlier.
Food, was well cooked, reasonably priced and arrived promptly....just what was needed

“Group pre booked meal.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Went for the retirement meal of a work colleague. They did not need the meals pre ordering but most had written down what they wanted. No waitress came to the table for the first half hour then someone actually took the list to her. No one came to take drink orders, we had to struggle from behind the long table to go to the bar... very difficult. The veggie meal was simply unacceptably awful. One was forgotten and she had to wait until everyone else had finished,then, when it arrived, she sent it back as it was so bad. The meat eaters had really lovely meals though. Well cooked and delicious.
