Had dinner in the Pig's tale in Gorey during the summer with a pal. I had never been before so wasn't sure what to expect. It was a lovely surprise. Service was really friendly. Our waitress also had a sense of humour, always useful when dealing with my and my friends! The atmosphere was laid back but efficient. I had... More

I took my husband to this lovely restaurant last night for his birthday . I chose it after looking at reviews of various restaurants on trip advisor as we are not local and it did not disappoint.We were having a mini break with our kids and parents in the amber springs and had a few rare hours out alone!

We where staying with friends near Gorey and wanted to treat them to dinner. A real gem of a restaurant, excellant food and service. The pork ribs as a starter and the Haddock as a main where just perfect, everyone enjoyed their meal. Service is dependant on how full the restaurant is but they had called in an extra member...

Relatively new restaurant on the main street opposite Pettitts Supermarket. Entrance by a narrow stairs to a brightly lit first floor restaurant. Specialties are Pork dishes and craft beers and ciders. On first night we both choose from the early bird menu which was excellent value at €22.50 for three courses. A week afterwards we took two guests and we... More

Ate at The Pigs Tale for the second time recently. And again it was fantastic. Restaurant was very busy on the night but this did not seem to have any effect on the service or quality of food. I had the ribs to start... amazing! While himself had the prawns..fantastic. Unfortunately the 'Farmed and Foraged' starter wasn't available but it... More

We waited and finally someone came the first thing we ordered drinks, after twenty minutes a waitress came and started removing our wine glasses, I pointed out we had ordered drinks and were...

Both myself and the waitress who had taken your order had apologised on the night and your drinks were brought straight away. When your table arrived, we were very busy and that is... More

This was our first visit ( two of us) and we mixed fish with the pork on offer. As we were early diners the restaurant was quiet at first but as we were leaving it was busy. We had pate and mussels to start with and both were enjoyable. Our mains were the Tomahawk Pork Chop and haddock in a... More

Six of us sat down to eat and not one of us was happy with our meal. The two kids found the meatballs and pasta too spicy and with too much of a porky taste. Two of us had the fish of the day, haddock, which came deep fried in 'tempura' batter. The fish was okay but it was served... More

Dear Don M, What a shame you felt the need to write a review about your experience on the internet instead of letting us know at the restaurant. Any problems could have been rectified on the evening in question, but we cannot fix an issue afterwards. Firstly, the kids beef meatballs do not have any pork in them to taste... More
