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.

Oh god where do it start ?! Lol! First of all we were given the early bird menu 30 mins too late, as we had called earlier in the day to enquire about it, which we really appreciated. We were a group of 5 girls so we all had wine (they offer 1/2 carafe yaaay!) and we were treating ourselves... More

This was our second visit, this time for Sunday lunch. Fish pie was excellent and so was desert. Service was prompt and friendly. Next time I'll try some bacon and have a pigs tale to tell..

We went to the pigstale for dinner last night, so glad we did! The food was amazing and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The pate starter and the pork belly with black pudding were delicious and they have a great selection of craft beers! Id highly recommend it!

My first time in The Pigs Tale last night and I loved it. Went for a quick bite before the cinema so we only had time for a main course but I can honestly say it was the nicest Caesar salad I've ever eaten. Yum! Can't wait to go back for a full meal.

Our first visit since the decor change and wow what an atmosphere! Buzzing with energy while still warm, cosy and inviting. Ribs were amazing as per usual and the hake special was perfectly cooked with a really tasty bean sauce. The lads true to form had the pork belly which is consistently spectacular (I was begrudgingly given a taste!) Portion... More

Stopped in here for the early bird menu on Friday evening and I can definitely recommend it. It was quiet when we arrived first, but did fill up as our meal progressed. Went for the main course and dessert option and was certainly not disappointed. Staff were very polite, and the choice on the menu was excellent. My wife picked... More
