Review of Pig and Whistle

Pig and Whistle
Ranked #507 of 848 Restaurants in Norwich
Description: The Pig & Whistle is a traditional pub with a modern feel in the heart of Norwich City Centre. We are open from 11:30 every day. The business is spread over 2 floors with a private rear external terrace away from the road. We do not have full disabled access but it is easy to get into the ground floor of the building with a wheel chair, although toilet access is very tight. We serve freshly made home cooked food all day every day, have 2 real ales on tap and have a large selection of beers, wines & spirits. The pub houses 2 English pool tables, 7 dart boards, bar billiards, table football & more to keep our customers entertained.

I was shocked at how I was spoken to by the woman serving in this pub. It was freezing cold, she clearly wasn't ready to open and was incredibly rude when I made a simple request. It is no surprise to me that the place is nearly always empty when I walk past if this is how they speak to their customers

I visited here with a friend last night for a quick drink before going to the cinema.
I've never been here before so wasn't sure what to expect, but I must admit I was pleasantly surprised!
There weren't many people in here, which was a relief as every other place was uncomfortably full.
The price for 2 drinks was surprisingly reasonable and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere inside. My plan is to go back and try the food, but I have high hopes for this!
Definitely worth a visit, even for a quick drink!

Popped into here a few times for a drink now its been refurbished and changed hands. New owners have done it up to a good standard. Always made to feel welcome, usually has 3 ales on (one of which is normally trooper, which is quite handy as its one of my favorite beers) and a good selection of lagers if I'm not in an ale mood.
