Been here quite a few times over the years but this year was disappointed.

The food is fantastic and also good value for money - this cant be faulted.

The service though is awful (i believe we were served by the female owner) she was rude, uninterested and to be honest didnt deserve our custom.

Shame that the service has gone down hill because this is a good english pub to go too.

Just a short dander out of burgau. Offers something for all the family. Pool and sun loungers for kids and those wishing to soak up the sun while the sport lovers can enjoy their footie/ rubgy/ racing etc. There is something on the menu to suit all ( English based dishes) the quality and quantity are excellent and great value. We had the special which was steak pie - to die for !! Overall, great English food at excellent rates !

Just back from another great week in Burgau,this year taking a large group of family and friends to celebrate a 50th birthday.We contacted Pat and Rot months beforehand to arrange a big night in the Pigs Head for our group of 40 people to include food for all and some live music to get the party going.This was all done quite quickly and Pat arranged for us to have the large back room for our group and arranged the tables accordingly,we then dressed the room with balloons and banners etc to give it a real party look.The night itself was fantastic,the food was equally as tasty as it was plentiful with several options available for everybody to try and it certainly went down a bomb!!.Pat and Rot had arranged for a duo called Wendy and Adam to play who were absolutely brilliant and just perfect for our night,nobody wanted them to stop playing!.
All I would say to anyone thinking of doing something similar is to get it sorted,you will not be disappointed!.
To Pat and Rot thanks for a fantastic week and a great night on Sunday in particular,Diane and all the group had a fantastic time and you really did us proud.See you both next year for more of the same I'm sure!!.
