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.

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