A beautiful Award Winning Restaurant situated at 95a Main St. Opposite Pettit's Supervalu, We are open all year serving delicious lunch & dinner. The menu is a celebration of traditional Irish food with a modern Irish "up-style" Featuring on our diverse menu is our own home reared, free range pork. Choice cuts will be used across the board as well as Drycured Homemade Bacon, Homemade Black & White Pudding & 100% Gluteen free Pork Sausages. We also cure our pork to make air dried Ham, Chorizo, Salami & much more. During game season (Sept 1st - Feb 28th) we provide the restaurant with locally sourced wild game on our daily specials board. This includes Venison, Pheasant, Rabbit, Wood Pigeon, Duck, Woodcock The Pigs Tale serves much more than Pork & Game on our Menu.

This restaurant is a little difficult to find as it has suffers from a narrow and not so attractive entrance. After a short flight of stairs the experience of a very good restaurant can then be experienced. Staff very warmly welcome you and put you at ease and don't forget about you.The menu is varied and well thought through.The quality... More

Unexpected in Gorey. Friendly professional service, great menu selection. I had the spicy chicken wings and the "Tomahawk" pork chop and both were excellent. My partner had the chorizo starter and burger mains and both also excellent. The lemon tart was refreshing and the coffee well presented and tasty.

Visited The Pigs Tale for the 3rd time last night (Tuesday night), and it was just as good as the 2 previous times we had been here. For starters we had the bruschetta and the pate. Both were fantastic. The topping on the bruschetta was so fresh and the pate was devine. Main courses were the Tomahawk chop and the... More

We had heard a lot of good things about this restaurant so decided to give it a try. It didn't start well, being left standing at the top of the stairs which is the entrance to the restaurant for a few minutes wasn't great and followed by a few smart comments by the maître d', we thought to ourselves the...

Dear Deane2013, We are sorry that you felt the need to write this review after being at the restaurant recently. Your table was one of the first to arrive upon opening, so the restaurant was quiet but by no means empty as you stated. Empty or full however, this should have had no bearing on the quality of food or... More
