“An excellent find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Called in without prior investigation, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The Pigs is a well kept venue with an interesting menu. We had the "Iffits", four tapas style dishes for £14 which was more than enough for two, and even received 10% discount through their Norfolk passport scheme. The food was beautifully prepared and very tasty. A very clean and tidy venue with very attentive and polite staff. There is an outside covered seating area giving plenty of choice of location for your meal. We will be returning.

“Little bit expensive for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We wanted something more than a sandwich especially as they were priced at £7. They also offer 2 'iffits' for £7 a person but we did not know the size of these so had to opt for the main course menu and most of the dishes on there were priced at £13 a had which I feel is expensive for lunchtime. 3 of us had plaice on the bone which was OK but the boiled potatoes had a strange taste as I suspect they were pre -packed ones rather than fresh ones. One of us had the fried haddock which was good but again,overpriced at £13.
On a plus side service was good and we did not have to wait too long for food.

“Two great meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Lovely meal at the pigs. Great service and great for kids who get to play outside in their beWILDerwood style playground. All in all very good value for money including the discount of 10% used with our Norfolk passport. The only thing we would change - get some seats for the adults to be able to watch their children outside easier.

“Very interesting menu.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Great place if you want to take the children with you; there is a good playroom opening to a lovely garden with wooden play houses to amuse the little ones.
The menu was varied and very interesting, you can even eat pigs' ears! Cannot comment, opted out! We were four friends and we all really enjoyed the food. Tables well spaced. You can eat indoors or outdoors in a very pleasant sheltered area.
Lovely atmosphere.
Friendly and helpful staff who knew the menu pretty well.
Worth a visit.
