The Big Pig is a very happening place, with excellent food and great atmosphere. The only drawback is that it very popular so it may be difficult to get a table at pick-hours and that is closes at 24:00. The menu may seem limited (especially if you come often).

I've read all the reviews about this restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Our party of 5 walked off the street without a booking and the staff couldn't have been more helpful to us as the restaurant was full because of the holidays. I was impressed with the décor, the menu and the size of the portions. The meat was cooked... More
