Very busy place on a Sunday but service was great. Replica of a typical English pub. Maybe a little bit cramped. Parking was a little hard to find. Food was delicious and plenty of it.

Friendly atmosphere, plenty of outdoor seating with heaters to watch the Foxtel sport channel - a bit of fun for footy lovers.

After a bit of menu stalking of the few restaurants in Olinda, my husband and I decided on the Pig & Whistle. We arrived early (just on 6pm) and asked if we had a booking (we didn't) I said I wasn't aware I needed one, is that going to be a problem? Only to be gruffly told that we should've... More

The atmosphere is cosy and warm, particularly when the weather is cold and miserable. Wood fires glow at each end of the restaurant and the seating is well set out so you have some space. There is a bar for those who want to be casual and outside areas for those who like the cold or the warm weather. All... More

From the moment we sat down the waitresses continued to hound us to order, it was getting very annoying. The waitress tutted when we ordered mains to share... When she took our plates she asked us if we would like to see the dessert menu and when we decided we were given the bill within seconds... However we coffees and... More
