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.

This includes Venison, Pheasant, Rabbit, Wood Pigeon, Duck, Woodcock The Pigs Tale serves much more than Pork & Game on our Menu.

Venison Sausages

I stopped by for a meal while on business in Gorey. It was fantastic. I ordered Pork and Leek sausages with mash, red onion and beef bone gravy they had none but did have Venison sausages. They were delicious. A nice portion and served promptly. All the staff were friendly and engaging. A visit... read more

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

The very first time we went to the Pigs Tale, we loved it and many times since, but in the past year the standards of the food has fallen and our visit on Saturday last was very disappointing. We both loved the new decor but then you can't eat the decor. We had potato skins to start, which were very... More

Dear paulandmary22, We are disappointed that you did not have another great meal with us. I feel the 2 stars were a bit unfair considering the only issue you seem to have had was with the burgers. As I always state, why didnt you let us know of a problem on the night? We take our constructive feedback very seriously... More

Booked a table for two as there are few restaurants open on Monday nights. Food delicious and well presented. Service was excellent. Only negative was there were very few tables occupied which made it lack atmosphere. Not the restaurant's fault.
