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. Great quality cuts of Wexford Beef & Lamb also feature, along with Poultry & Pasta with locally sourced Fish fresh from Kilmore Quay daily & Fruit and Vegetables grown in Wexford when in season.

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

Underwhelmed, I'm afraid. We visited the day after Valentine's, and maybe that had something to do with our experience. The room is lovely, but we found the service a bit slow. Everything we had was tasty, but very overcooked, to the point where we wondered if it had been precooked and just finished off to order. The burger was supposedly... More

The Food was amazing and everybody raved about it after. The staff were very professional and friendly. The meals all arrived at the same time and there was no delay. The food was fresh with a very impressive menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant and was value for money!

I went there with my son and daughter on a Saturday night for a main course. I had the house special, the belly of pork. It was delicious, melt in the mouth delicious. We were so stuffed that we couldn't consider having a dessert. Very friendly atmosphere and our waitress, Chloe, was extremely attentive. In fact, all three waitresses, including... More
