Sometime now since we were here, but the food was good, both in the evening and at lunch times, the only disappointing thing was the poor selection of beers.

Meal made with fresh ingredients, locally sourced, served efficiently by welcoming staff. Moderate prices. We shall be back (and the address has been recommended to our colleagues).

Was very pleasantly surprised by this place. The quality of food was amazing for the price. But what really stood out was the service. Fast, friendly and efficient. Deirdre (I think her name was) looked after us so well and made great recommendations on the menu. Looking forward to returning very soon!

A needed night out. No better place than the Pig's Tale. A good menu and all way very good specials. Friendly staff and a good local beer list. Not many desserts, but you are so full after the starter and main, you do not really need one. We will be returning as soon as we can.

It's not always easy to please three generations at a family gathering, but The Pigs Tale pulled it off yet again. A good cross section of the menu tried with starters including mussels, soup, and the very popular potato skins. Mains included burgers (major thumbs up), pork belly, chicken supreme, sausage and steak. A great selection to appeal to all... More

I had a starter, main (pugs belly) and dessert and I still felt hungry afterwards. The price could be better for what you are getting (very measly with the chips) and the service more attentive!! Not worth it!

Dear Steven S, I am surprised to learn that after having a 3 course meal in our restaurant that you still felt hungry. The majority of customers are surprised about our large portions and are stuffed after even 2 courses let alone 3 courses! I also find it suspicious that you say we are measly with the chips yet the... More
