This was a very pleasant dinner, great food, with very friendly and helpful staff, it was also dog friendly. The menu was sufficiently varied to meet the demands of the whole family. Service was very good and the staff retained a very good humour even though they must have been very busy.

Called in here on a very wet Saturday afternoon and luckily they served food all day. No room in the bar unfortunately, so we sat in the little snug. The bistro area at the back looked nice but no one was in there so we didn't want to sit in there on our own. Staff were friendly and efficient. They...

What an absolute disappointment. Wafer thin meat ... like rubber. So little veg I've seen much larger child portions and the only veg was courgette. Will definitely not step foot in this pub again.cannot remember the price but it was more than £10 for the one course. The plates of food were literally thrown onto the table. Guess the staff...

Wasn't quite there. The food was ok . 2 meals were sent back because they weren't warm enough. The service was disjointed and the place lacked atmosphere. The waiter kept apologising for things but it didn't get better. We wouldn't rush back.

Visited this place a couple of times over the weekend for drinks and for dinner on Saturday. Nicely refurbished. Good selection of Lakeland and other beers. Dinner was very good, though the service was slightly chaotic. (Endearing in a strange way) Will re vist

The pub itself is rather small, but the menu was excellent as you would expect from Simon Rogan. It was not too expensive and we really enjoyed it. We both had vegetarian options which were excellent.

We had booked 6 weeks ahead for a group of 4 of us to have a meal at the pig and whistle. The booking was made by email and we further confirmed that we could bring a dog into the pub. So it was with some excitement we went to the pub on Saturday night; but instead of a lovely...

Lovely setting- roaring fire place. Great food and even better service. The bar man had everyone at the bar in fits of laughter. Loved the warm feel of the place and all the different varieties of gin. Definitely will return xx

A family affair. 5 of us, 3.30pm seated in the small room adjoining the bar. Reception upon entering was subdued, staff did not seem to be aware of why we were there. However, this was soon rectified by the amenable barman who took our drinks orders and indicated we wait in the bar before dining. Atmosphere in the bar area...
