Our first visit for a Sunday Lunch, I must say fairly disappointing for the price. The service from our main waitress left something to be desired. We asked for pigs wrapped in blankets for my Grandson to go with his Pork dish, we were told they were only served with the Chicken !! Odd and not customer friendly in my... More

The Pig on the Hill is in Swindon's old town, which is reassuring, as I always thought the planners there knocked anything vaguely ancient down. We slumped into this pub on a very hot day having driven from London. The lounge was refreshingly cool and not particularly busy at the time. I ordered a 'starter' involving beetroot, basil and garlic,... More

Called in with friends Saturday early evening. Has obviously had some money spent on it at some point to do the inside up, but quite clearly started to slip. The staff that served us were friendly, one chap clearly on his first day, so no immediate concerns. Disappointingly however, all three of us winced and returned our first ale choice... More

Called in for a meal and were really impressed by the range of the menu. We both had superbly cooked food - main course and desserts - all beautifully presented. The staff were so friendly and helpful. A great experience all round

My wife and I decided to have a trip around old town last night, and when we got to The Pig on the Hill, I ordered a pint of Carling and a Apple & Mango J2O. Well I nearly had a heart attack with the rediculous price of £6.20p. At a rough guess Carling at £3.50 that would make the... More

Staff were too busy polishing glasses to serve. After ten minutes' waiting we departed, to take our business somewhere more interested in having customers and (frankly) taking their money!

The Pig on the Hill is a pub with a small dining area. When we visited last summer it had a varied, competitively priced menu. Food was well cooked and provided good value for money. Now the menu is dressed up to make the dishes on offer look like fine dining but one could pay nearly £15 for what is... More
