A local pub has been given the highest rating in east Suffolk from The Good Food Guide 2018.

The Unruly Pig, located on Orford Road, Bromeswell, is the only Top 50 UK Gastropub in the whole of East Anglia, and has been given a cooking score of four by an anonymous inspector.

Brendan Padfield, owner of The Unruly Pig, said: “We were lucky enough to be listed in The Good Food Guide within our first 12 weeks of trading. Unfortunately, a fire then intervened and closed us for six months. Nevertheless, we got back on our trotters and have now received an even better rating by The Good Food Guide 2018 - and we have the highest rating in east Suffolk.”

Brendan continued: “Looking at all the other wonderful pubs and restaurants listed in Suffolk, to say that I am so proud of what Dave Wall, our head chef, and our team at The Unruly Pig have achieved is the understatement of the year.”
