We popped in here for lunch and a pint. What a great experience. We had the scotch egg, the haloumi and a corned beef hash type dish with an egg on it.

The food was excellent and the guy behind the bar who served us was friendly and efficient and could not have done more to make us happy with our lunch.

We will definitely go back. Loved it.

Nipped in for a quick lunch, came out stuffed and feeling very pleased with our choice. Had the boon doggle pastime. The meat inside was beautiful, fat or grissle free and so tender. The chips were huge soft and cooked to perfection. Luke serving did everything he could for us. Very good efficient service. Great taste and quality. Not the cheapest but worth the money.

From the outside, this looked nothing special, so we discounted it on our first night away in Windermere. We then did some research and loved the phrase ‘we think pork is under-rated’ and saw suckling pig on the menu- so we visited and were so pleased we did. From the welcome and chat when we arrived, to the help in choosing our meal and table, through the attentive - but not in your face- service and then our meal, which was fantastic. The largest, crispiest chips ever, tender pork on black pudding mash, melt-in-the-mouth, buttery pastry on the tender beef pasty. Add homemade gravy and cloudy cider, our meal was complete. We were proudly able to tell the story that we choose not to eat out much because we’re often disappointed - but not this time. A belly full of gorgeous food and drink for £50, with the added conversations at the bar completely free!
This place is highly recommended for lots of reasons, and it deserves to be. Clean, with great service and great food - worth all of the effort being put in, thank you to The Pig !

We stayed in Windermere for a week for the first time.. saw the reviews on here and thought we'd give it a go.. so good, we went back twice more. I had the Suckling Pig twice because it was a fantastic, tasty meal.. my Husband had the mussels in thai sauce twice for the same reason. Also had the beef pasty which was unlike any other.. such tender beef and light pastry.. the chips are enormous.. another excellent meal. One of the specials was a goat curry which hubby said was one of the best curries he has ever had. Not only is the food fantastic but the laid back style from the staff just makes you feel that you can sit at your table for as long as you like.. music is fab, atmosphere is buzzing.. loved it! Thanks guys

Nice cosy little place offering reasonably priced fare, no need to book just walk in and take your chances.
I had the belly pork bun with crackling, apple sauce, fries & coleslaw. Delicious mmmm, the pork was nice with a sticky sauce on them the chips were nice and chunky. Partner had the mussels, with sourdough bread, and thoroughly enjoyed them.
Overall a great place with tasty food at a reasonable price, would definitely go again if in the area.
