We went here with two families last Friday, we hadn't been here for about 6 months but we had a great time. The meals were all very good, we had pumpkin soup which both kids loved, I had the chicken salad, hubby had pork belly and the others had steak. The steak was absolutely fantastic! This was all backed up... More

Best beer! Great, generous food. The Parma is hard to go past! Love the beer garden and quaint feel.

We came on a recommendation from where we were staying. Lived up to expectations. Hearty food, huge portion sizes. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. We dined outside next to the very good playground and our two year old and four year old had a ball playing there. They also enjoyed their food which was also generously portioned.

Went with out 2 year old and 5 month old. As any parent understands eating out with young ones can be a challenge in it's self. Went here for lunch and service was absolute amazing, our young kids were taken care of very well with crayons and paper. Meals are huge, even the kids meals would full me up fine...... More

We have been frequently the Pig & Whistle for many years and love it. We even had our wedding reception there in 2009! We decided to go along tonight and were not disappointed. My husband tried the new Pork Belly with Mac & Cheese which he enjoyed very much. A great regular, enjoyed our dinners very much....

We had a meal for 3 people and ordered the steak and pork belly only to later be told they have no steak. What kind of pub runs out of steak. There are not many choices on the menu either. We ended up with two pork bellies and a Parma. The crackling on the pork belly was soggy it would... More

We enjoyed the food. Large serves and the pork belly was excellent! The menu was a bit limited. A lot of meat! They were ably half full but it took a long time to be greeted and seated. Staff seemed to be disorganised. On sitting we found the seats were worn and uncomfortable. They were all the same. We again... More

This was once, hands down- my FAVOURITE restaurant. The pork belly + mash was absolutely one of the best meals I've ever had in my life. So when my husband booked to go for Valentines day, I was nothing short of ecstatic! Upon arrival we ordered drinks and it took 30 minutes for mine to arrive. They explained (rather hurriedly)...

Great menus with a good choice of traditional beers. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We have visited this place many times and it never fails to disappoint. Whether you choose to sit out side on a summers evening or inside with a real fire in the cooler months you'll be guaranteed of good food and company.

I have never been a fan of this restaurant but my husband loves their pork belly. We went there tonight for dinner and they advised they are transitioning to a new menu, which included a changed pork belly dish, so we both decided to have the grilled flake with chips and salad. After almost 30 minutes it turned up and... More
