Four of us had an "iffit" lunch at The Pigs. Iffits are small dishes costing £3.50 each and are known as "Norfolk Tapas". We enjoyed cockles, prawns, whitebait, deep fried blue cheese, spare ribs, duck and prunes, pigs' ear strips, and deep fried cauliflower - they were all enjoyable. The pub itself is more of a large rambling restaurant with rooms than a traditional country pub. There were only a few other customers and the atmosphere was functional without much character or ambience. The drink prices were OTT with modest wines costing from £18 per bottle and real ales {Adnams, Woodfordes and Fox Brewery} at £3.80 per pint! The staff were efficient and friendly. The owners perhaps should be seen during food service. This is a place to go to eat rather than to stand at the bar chatting and socialising.

All enjoyed Sunday lunch, the big pigs and little piglets, who loved the puddings. Well worth a visit. just book early to get a table.

We booked to stay at The Pigs on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. After reading some of the negative reviews posted about this hotel and restaurant I had mixed expectations but I didn't need to worry. From the warm welcome we received when we walked through the door to the excellent breakfast we enjoyed just before leaving we couldn't have wished for a better stay. This is a delightful hotel, the room was one of the best I have stayed in, the staff were professional but very friendly and the food tasty, good value and plentiful.

I find it difficult to understand how anyone could find fault, my only disappointment is that it is booked up for Easter so we will have to wait a little longer for our next visit.

Saturday lunch - table booked. Just had 5 of the Norfolk "tapas" menu (+ a pint, with MrsFB having a soft drink). I have never been offered "popcorn" cockles or a little pot of beef dripping before . Pigs ears I have had both in France and here on a previous visit -- so you should begin to get the style of the "light" lunch choices now. Fast service, interesting menu choices, £3.50 each tapas item. Worth a visit? - yes I think so -- provided you are comfortable with the style of old fashioned country food.
The actual pub and dining room is quite large - and again - not luxurious -- but a fun place for a visit.
