The same theme as every Hog's Breath I have been to, so good food, a steak bias, which came quickly, was well cooked and very tasty. On a Thursday it was busy but tables available for immediate service. Parking in the street was easy.

The staff were friendly. We ordered a salad and a burger. The salad was not very fresh. The restaurant was so hot that it was impossible to enjoy anything. We couldn't even finish our food from the heat. Definitely not a pleasant experience.

We went on a hot, balmy night and initially got put to the back of the restaurant against a hot wall. The owner saw our discomfort and soon relocated us to a much cooler location. Thanks. The food was lovely and service was prompt and friendly.

It was below average, the service was fine. The food looked good, but it was cold. The lamb shanks were cold in the middle as if it was quickly microwaved. The ribs had so much more fat compared to meat.

Had lunch and the service was great. The staff were pleasant and the food fresh and filling. I tried the traditional steak and it was well cooked and they catered well to my requests. Service was fast and the price was acceptable. The one call out was the locality as the old building was full of charm and was well... More

We went to Hog's Breath as we know what to expect. That it didn't disappoint. The steaks were cooked to our liking and the taste just like any other Hog's Breath Cafe everywhere. What disappointed was the long wait - there were customers at the restaurant but it was hardly packed - and just like other Hog's Breath experience from... More

We visited just recently on our way home during the Xmas break. We were seated very quickly and the restaurant was not overly full at the time. After we ordered we waited about 30mins for our meals, and so did all the people around us who had been there before us. All of a sudden a wave of food came... More
