We went for lunch on a grey Saturday with friends. The atmosphere was great with memorabilia on the walls everywhere you looked. The staff were friendly and efficient. The house cider was delicious, and there was a great section of beers. The food was ok but nothing special. The meals were a little on the small size. Overall we had... More

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.

This is my favourite pub - generous, earthy meal with warm country vib and cosy seating. Totally unpretentious while serving great quality meals. The staff are always friendly, some gives fantastic recommendation with the meal. My husband and I almost bought a house near by, so we can come here more often. 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
