Having been before some time ago and found it good we went with family for lunch. We had chicken pie as the dish of the day. It was not inedible but it was not good - seemed like left overs being used up. The chap looking after us was told but he had no interest in our concerns - guess...

Met up with some friends, and received a nice welcome from an older man and dog. Our coats were taken from us and we were shown to the bar area. After we all arrived, we were shown to our table when an older cantankerous lady insisted I move my handbag as the waiting staff would trip over it (ironically one...

The Ugly Bug in is now called The Norfolk Lurcher and we recently had a meal there to celebrate my wife's birthday which was quite good. On the strength of this we rebooked the restaurant for the 17th. December and confirmed the time as 7.45, only to be informed on the evening before that they had made a mistake with...

Had a meal for 8 booked for Saturday evening, unfortunately due to illness, we were reduced to 6. Table set lovely, with crackers, blowers, party poppers and balloons. Lots of people eating, but not too noisy or cramped. Good portions, very good service, especially for one member of our party who had specific dietary needs. Did not feel rushed, very...

In my opinion, The Ugly Bug is a really unappealing name for a restaurant (thankfully, it has now changed to the Norfolk Lurcher) but i did not have very high hopes. However, i could not fault it! The decor and ambience were perfect. The staff really friendly but never overbearing. I had a great pintof ale from the bar then...

We have been here so many times now, we absolutely love it. Staff are so kind and friendly and the animals are gorgeous! The food is delicious, reasonably priced and plenty of it! We would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody as the food is to die for! Alfie the gorgeous boy is pictured below!

This pub is now called The Norfolk Lurcher. But confusingly the signs to it still refer to the Ugly Bug! Anyway there was a good atmosphere and a nice welcome from the staff when we arrived for dinner last week. The drinks seemed reasonably priced. The food is averagely good, but not hugely inspiring. My chap enjoyed his duck, the...

Lovely cosy inn. Food average+. Worth a visit for the atmosphere and beer. Quite difficult to find as it is right out in the country. What else can I say to fill up the 200 word minimum except blah blah blah blah

Enjoyed a family meal in a lovely location. Good food and friendly hosts made this three generation family meal very relaxed. Local produce ( including goat) on a varied menu. We booked and on arrival sat by the open fire and chose our food with help from the staff who knew all about the produce including the samphire. Menu had...
