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...

Spent 2 night at The Ugly Bug Inn and it was such a relaxing experience. Very warm and friendly family that run the venue. The rooms are small but have everything you need inside them. Further more the food is excellent, such great value and great selection.

The worst sirloin steak I've ever experienced.asked for medium rare, arrived with not a hint of juice to be seen.Didnt even look like sirloin.i could have done a better job in my kitchen. I tried the Ugly bug on a friends recommendation, I normally use the red lion in Cringleford where the steak is always cooked to perfection. At the...

We were told that this was an above average pub for food and I must say the food was good (if a little overpriced). However, the pub itself was dark and tired looking inside and out. Upon arrival we were told to take a seat in the bar and the Maitre D came over and gave us the menus. When...
