About
Great food. Fab service. Relaxed vibe.That’s what The Unruly Pig is all about. And we are multi award winning. We are the only UK Top 50 Gastropub 2020 in Suffolk ! Most recently, our Chef has been named as 'Best Pub Restaurant Chef 2019/20' by the Craft Guild of Chefs . We’re a 16th century Suffolk Inn with cosy log burners, original oak beams and an eclectic mixture of pop and quirky art. A traditional pub with a contemporary feel and ambience. We have a decked area and garden for al fresco drinks/ dining and our bar is very dog friendly (treats always available). So just pop in for a bite and a pint, or spend some time tasting our fabulous wines and some of Suffolk’s most glorious food. A

Mother’s Day - an absolute treat, it was our second ‘heat at home’ and both have been delicious. Can’t wait for the restaurant to reopen but, in the meantime this is a brilliant alternative. Thank you team for your hard work, planning and expertise.

We first visited in 2018 and was floored by the quality, mutually agreeing it was the best food in Britain we've ever experienced. We foolishly decided to hold off returning for years in case it was a one off and our memories might be soured....More
