    First but not the last time for visit. We were made to feel really welcome and the food and service were excellent

    Excellent service, excellent food, lovely atmosphere. Loving the artwork

    Very pleasant interior, excellent welcome by the owner and staff. The food was not as good as on our first visit. A clever poussin dish was a bit too salty and needed more contrasting flavours, the duck breast in risotto however was a winner. Didn't have starters, probably a pity as the desserts were a bit stodgy. Espressos were bitter and not all that hot. Service by a chatty French waitress Maddy was attentive and delightful.

    Taking up the East Anglian Daily Times special offer of a two-course meal plus glass of wine for £15, we were not disappointed. There was a narrow choice of dishes (2 starter, 2 main course) but we eat widely so we each chose differently in order to sample each other's food. My duck parfait was sublime and the sour dough bread was the best I've ever tasted (and I make my own at home!). My husband's veggie Cavatelli was multi-dimensional both texture and flavourwise - enough to think that if food tasted this good you could become a vegetarian without suffering too much...though not vegan as it was obviously blessed with lashings of butter! I continued with more Duck (good job I love it!) - this time it was a delicious Confit (not over salty or running in fat, as I have sometimes experienced) and the accompanying kale and polenta were just right. David's hake was cooked to perfection and combined beautifully with the samphire and capers.
    We loved the atmosphere created by the brave interior design (the black walls really work!), the artwork, the log stove and the choice of music (appreciated by my husband for the selection of pieces with nice guitar solos - kept him happy identifying the guitarists and bands!).
    The service was smart, prompt and friendly - thank you! Even David's pint of Adnam's was served at the correct temperature (not icy!) and was only £3.90 which is not extortionate in this kind of environment.
    It's a pity that we don't have unlimited cash because it would be great to come every week to try everything on the à la carte menu, and wine list...

    Lunch was lovely at the Unruly Pig. My husband and I both had starters. I had the Smoked Mackerel and Oyster Velouté with Celery and Apple, while my husband had the Chicken Liver and Foie Gras Parfait with Brioche and Clementines. Our 2 year old daughter (who was celebrating her birthday) had the Ham and Leek Risotto. Loved our main meal as well- I had the Butter Roasted Cod with Crab, Prawn and Chili Risotto, while my husband had a Rump steak. I also had the Pump Street Bitter Chocolate Torte with Banana and Rum Ice Cream, which was lovely and decadent. My daughter had a Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream (with Happy Birthday written on it).

    We'll be back!

    Everyone was very friendly, and we were looked after very well by our waitress who explained the menu and regularly made sure everything was ok for us. The food was lovely, the menu was varied and different to usual gastropubs which was a nice surprise, for example skate with gnocchi and brown shrimps, featherblade brasied in Guiness. The choice of dishes was good with an emphasis on locally sourced produce. The portion sizes were good and we felt we had value for money for the amount and quality of food we had. There is also an extensive drinks list with a section highlighted just for drivers offering different non-alcoholic drinks e.g. damson fizz, St Clements. A nice touch as many people would drive to this venue to eat. We chose this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and as I had mentioned this on booking, this was acknowledged with a plate decorated with an edible 'happy birthday' message and a scoop of delicious vanilla icecream. We were very impressed with The Unruly Pig and would definitely return.

    The entrance is awkward; heavy doors. Staff attentive and pleasant. BUT problem when dining. Too many staff, too frequently, press in upon one to ask repeatedly how the dining experience is going. It's like being quizzed by an exam team of auditors. The staff 'buzz about'. It's good that they're there, and good that they're attentive, but they don't need frequently to ask how is the food, etc, etc. All they need to do is to be available if one needs to seek help/advice. Brief the staff on the Suffolk demographic: over 50% are over 50; over 25% are over 75. More than half the people in Woodbridge and district are retired. [I'm 82, and typical]. Older people are hard of hearing [two hearing aids in my case and my wife is deaf], yet your staff speak like machine guns; a rapid outpouring of incomprehensible material aimed, seemingly, at someone with prefect hearing. Many of your customers don't have this. Please understand this.
    Your food is good; chefs know what they're doing. Prices seem high by Suffolk standards, but probably not by London standards. How many people from London dine there? So, as a typical retired couple on a limited income, we found ourselves 'shopping by price' from your menu. That is, we reviewed it looking for food we could afford, rather than food we would like to consume. Take the trouble [if you wish to succeed] to make sure your menus always have what might be called 'good value dishes'. Items which provide a 'filler experience' as well as a taste experience. It's not gourmands v. gourmets, but we chose the cod last night because it came with a bed of rice and other accoutrements in the price. It was delicious. Well done. We had no starter or pudding; adds too much cost.
    So food-wise you're doing well; just make a big effort to stay affordable with, say, half your menu, so you get plenty of repeat customers.

    Lovely lunch for six ladies of a certain age. Delicious duck parfait followed by hake on a bed of pasta with cockles and capers. Lovely desserts too. Our French waitresses were friendly and helpful. We had the special February deal which included a glass of the house wine which was very good. Never been disappointed at this great restaurant.
