“Smoky Pub”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

A typical pub, pub food that tastes good. Beers from Nottingham Road Brewery always a winner craft beer. The experience depends largely on the other patrons behavior. Outside can be cold.

“Our favourite pub”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This pub serves beer from micro breweries in the area and whisky from around the world. You can get pies or excellent hamburgers from the restaurant across the road. It is a prime attraction in Parys - the proprietor is very friendly and shows how much he appreciates your patronage by always throwing in a little extra. It is dark and well-decorated in true pub style inside and has lots of outside places where you can sit in the sun.

“Good Old Pub”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Love The Pickled Pig. Absolutely love the Pub, the beers, the menu. We normally have the Oxtail Pie. Seriously the best pub type pie. Service is great - the guys are always very friendly and helpful. Keep up the GREAT WORK. Will always support PP.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I was disappointed, after reading all the raving reviews on Tripadvisor. The prices of the beer was quite steep compared to simialar places. Waited in excess of 40 minutes for our pies. The filling of the pepper steak pie was on the dry side. The whole experience was a disappointment.
