This place gets good reviews from the British locals ( items like Shepard's pie, fish & chips on the menu), many who live in the area but we found it pretty poor & over priced. The place was empty the night we went & as its a large "British" pub style, there was absolutely no atmosphere. Could not honestly recommend,... More

I've eaten here at least five times, and the best entree was the roast duck. However, nothing about this place resembles a British Pub. It is better described as a "Lace Curtain" type of restaurant. The food is good, but the wait time is long and the prices are HIGH. Also..... don't let them seat you on the lanai (Patio)... More

The restaurant has a great menu and good selection of british beers. It's always nice to find a pint of guiness when in Florida despite it not going with the great weather. The food is always very tasty and the staff helpful. You are treated like family here which is nice but sometimes when you are trying eat your food... More

This restaurant is a nice experience. It reminds one of the stereotypical British Pub. Everyone was friendly, treating customers like old friends. I had the fish and chips (with a side of peas). The food is about what you would expect. Not highly special. However, the $ fish and chips cost me $$. It was a nice experience that I... More

We arrived on a Monday around 5:30PM. Love the decor and it is dark and quiet. Orders for 7 of us were taken. Loved the bangers and mash...very tasty. The fish and chips were just ok. Mostly heavy breading and a little bit of fish. Salads and vegetables are extra...not even a slice of tomato or anything on the plate.... More

What a nice surprise this place is...a little hidden gem in a mostly empty strip mall. Great decor like a British pub, very friendly staff, and the food was excellent. The duck and the pot roast were very tasty, and of course there is the Guiness! It's very cozy, and nobody rushes you...they make you feel right at home. We... More

If you like this cheese, then order the Chicken Breasts in Stilton sauce. Fantastic dinner last evening with my wife and the golf group, husbands and wives, and solos. I must make this sauce for our next chicken dish and filet.

We have been regulars at the Pig N Whistle since its first opening. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal and I have eaten most things on the menu :-). We are Brits who live here all year round and know what it is to have a real pub type atmosphere (with great restaurant) where the... More
