We spent our Sunday evening dinner at "Pig & Whistle Tavern". It had a cosy warm environment & the meals were delicious & substantial. The service received was friendly and a very good standard. We will go back again.

Good beer and service. Food was plentiful and very tasty. I will be back here. They had well kept Fullers London Pride and ESB on tap as well as Old Speckled Hen and some very good local beers. Food is good pub fare and very well put together.

Price is middle of the road and good... More

I Love The Pig & Whistle Tavern. It brings many fond memories of my travels through the English country side. I like the decor of this old pub displaying paraphenalia and relics from old historical times. Very impressive & leaves you feeling a warm sense of wonderment and awe! Many varieties of English ale to choose from and enjoy whilst... More

Lovely food, great ambience. It's like a wee hidden European pub with a roaring fire. Service was fast and it was a lovely lunch! Highly recommended!

Went with some friends on a very warm Saturday. The outdoor area is just perfect for a few beers and a meal on a warm day. And, they have Little Creatures Pale Ale on tap! That was enough to hook me :D food is fantastic also. My ONLY gripe was the meals took a while to come out, but the... More
