Went for Sunday Lunch with a friend. The food was really excellent, the presentation was really nice. We both had the roast beef. It was served with fresh vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Plus gravy. Delicious, no complaints other than could of been more food on the plate as was so lovely.

Staff very friendly. That's a huge plus. We had a weekend lunch. The food took a little too long, about 45 mins and it wasn't all that busy. The food itself, I like the idea of the sandwiches but, the pork was more ham than pork and the chicken seemed to be bought in pre sliced breast. Sausages were a... More

Visited the POTH for our work's Christmas party which we had in the upstairs function room. The pub is nice and the staff are super friendly, but a couple of negative comments as follows... The food itself was ok. Soup was ok. Duck was ok, if a little overcooked for my taste. Vegetables were nice. Christmas mess was sadly lacking... More

I've just had one of the loveliest xmas lunches at the Pig on the HIll, although Turkey is not on the menu I'd highly recommend the roast beef. The red apple, parsnip and ginger soup to start was also delicious. The rest of my group (there were 9 of us) also commented on how lovely the food was, and between... More

Popped into a colleagues leaving do for c 20-30 people. I haven't been for a while and there was a good relaxed atmosphere, drinks and food good. Plenty of places for either a relaxing chat or to be more in the thick of things.

Plenty of places in Old Town offering Sunday Lunch these day, but they're all lacking in certain areas. The Pig offers plenty of selection of starters/mains/desserts - and all the meats are fresh and locally sourced. The only downside is they're not a big fan of giving you enough potatoes. I think 2 roasts, and a spoonful of mash is... More

I visited The Pig on the Hill for lunch and chose the vegi burger. For £13 I got a bun with mushroom, aubergine and tomato in it with a very small portion of over cooked french fries. There wasn't a burger in it! No attempt whatsoever. They could have at least put a cheap soya burger in their. I also... More

A couple of friends and I wanted somewhere to watch the football and have something to eat, and there are a few choices in the Old Town area, but we settled on the Pig for a change. We were politely greeted and shown to a table next to the bar with its own TV that the waitress turned on for... More

Really good pub food! Had their burger with bacon and pulled pork twice, not normally a burger fan but v v tasty! Could do with bigger range of starters on menu though. Recently had Sunday lunch here, also very tasty. Good pub food in lively atmosphere

We were passing the pig on the hill when we remembered that we had had a very good sandwich there a few months ago, expensive but good. We chose two sandwiches which came to something over £14 which although we thought was expensive, we imagined would be good. Within a couple of minutes the chief came out to explain that... More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. I must admit we are a little bemused and frustrated by your comments. When you arrived at The Pig On The Hill we had stopped serving our lunch menu but when asked our chef happily took your lunch order after explaining that at that point in time we would... More
