“Recommended by The Sunday Times, Financial Times, Delicious and Olive magazines and many other foodie publications, we have the best rating in East Suffolk in The Good Food Guide 2019. We were awarded ‘Best Suffolk Restaurant' 2018/19 as well as ‘Best Front of House Team 2018' (Estrella Damm UK Top 50 Gastropub Awards). Great food. Fab service. Relaxed vibe. That’s what The Unruly Pig is all about. We’re a 16th century Suffolk Inn with cosy log burners, original oak beams and an eclectic mixture of pop and quirky art. We have an outside decked area and garden and our bar is very dog friendly. A multi award winning pub with a fun, contemporary feel”
