Pigs (The)

Norwich Road, Edgefield, Norfolk, NR24 2RL
While still a proper local, where you can meet friends for a pint of beer – or a game of darts or bar billiards – the reason many visit this pub is for their good and refreshingly original food.

On arrival, the system is to find a table, then order your food at the bar, which arrives in due course. One trouble with this system is the difficulty lone diners experience in a busy pub – but the system seems to work well.

You can just have a sandwich, or perhaps their 'A Day Breakfast'; while a selection of 'Iffits' offers light tapas-style dishes to combine or share with friends. These might include 'Potted Cheese'; 'North Sea Fish Cake'; 'Smoked Sprats'; 'Rare-Breed Crispy Pigs Ears with Tartare Sauce' and 'Cauliflower Fritters'.

More substantial dishes kick off with their signature 'Three Pigs' – Slow Cooked Belly, Smoky Baked Beans, Apple Chutney, Black Pudding & Crackling'; while a winter menu also brought 'Deep-fried Haddock in Beer Batter, Fat Chips, Mushy Peas & Tartare Sauce'; 'Mutton & Onion Norfolk Hot Pot with Braised Red Cabbage' and 'Binham Blue, Spinach & Walnut Bread & Butter Pudding' – while specials and fish dishes are listed on a blackboard.

If you still have room, or just fancy something sweet, 'Flourless Chocolate Cake with Clotted Cream'; 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' and Norfolk Biffin with Vanilla Ice Cream and Ginger Crumbs' might be there to tempt you.
