“Good food - service below par”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We visited the pink pig last night with friendswe ordered 1 beer, 1 coke and some table water and then ordered meals - our meal started with a trio of dips at $19. The Pita was warm and the dips tasty however I dont think it was worth the $19.
Three of our party ordered the ribs and a bowl of chips to share between them, and I ordered the Roast pork rib eye.
Each person was fully satisfied with the serve of ribs finding them very tasty and meaty. The Roast meal was very nice with the exception of the crackling which unfortunately tasted like styrofoam.
We werent approached during the meal like the other tables to enquire how everything was going and our drinks were long gone - it wasnt until after we had been finished eating for about 10 minutes that we managed to get the attention of one of the wait staff to order 1 more beer, 1 more coke and 2 glasses of moscato. The finished plates were left until after our drinks were returned. We were not offered a dessert menu or asked if we would like the bill. My husband proceeded to pay at the counter - which isnt an issue at all.
All in all the evening cost $180 for 4 people - which ultimately for $45 per person isnt too bad but I would have hoped for better attention to the finer details such as clearing the plates and drinks.
Overall the food is quite pleasant and the service is adequete but not somewhere that I would rave about to everyone. Its worth checking out yourself to form our own opinion though.

“Tops for ribs.”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Saturday night was packed, book to avoid dissapointment.
We started with Trio of dips & Garlic bread, all arrived within 15 minutes.
The Girls ordered Pinkys, Boys had the Pepper steak & the Stir fry with a difference {Steve is a bit fussy} The mains took 30 minutes to table considering the venue was packed this was remarkable.
All up = 2 beers, 1 glass white wine, 1 soft drink, 1 nice bottle red, plus meals
$150 with entertainment cards Great value...

Verdict = Great food & service.

Recommendation = Absolutely
