We have visited The Pig' s Head on many occasions especially enjoying their Hog Roast evenings and Sunday lunches which are fantastic value for money. However nothing prepared us for Pat's Pies which were probably the best pies I've ever tasted. We'll definitely be looking out for the next pie evening!!

“Read the instructions please”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I have frequented this establishment on many an occasion over the years,mainly on my lonesome to watch the FOOTIE advertised on the BIG boards outside the MAIN door, as her indoors likes to go shopping in Lagos I used to like watching Newcastle play football or the odd golf match.
It has a very good atmosphere serves good beer bottled or draught and even the odd Brit one if your feeling homesick.
Rot and his wife are great hosts, the food is very good and at a reasonable price especially the Sunday lunches.
So to all those chaps who are able and willing to slip the wife's leash it is a great place to chill for a while with no nagging.

“Not really a fair review”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

With reference to the review below on 28 April, 2013 by leshay1958. It is pretty obvious from the advertising signs outside that this is a sports bar, so if this is not your type of establishment, why even set foot in it. The Pigs Head has been serving Burgau for many years and is frequented by sports fans to support and watch the big events. It also has a great restaurant serving good value food and hosts many live music events. By the way, I do not remember Hell having an apostrophe last time I checked.

If you want good service and fantastic food and fantastic atmosphere, this is the best place to visit, the hog roast is a must, you can have a good laugh, the staff are very friendly, and the prices are very reasonable, fhe Sunday lunch is very good 3 courses for under 10 euros is very good and very filling.

“More like the Bee's Knees!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Pig's Head is a fantastic pub with a fantastic atmosphere. There was plenty going on, in particular a Charaoke event where a delicious hog roast was served! The staff were friendly and the beers free (cause my dad bought them but apparently the prices were good). Wide range of sports channels, allowing me to watch the mighty Rams beat Dirty Leeds in a mouth-watering encounter, two of the biggest clubs in the world clashing. A great pub, visit it.
