We came to the tickled pig for our work Christmas dinner and was very, very impressed. We ate from the xmas menu which was sublime, every choice looked amazing. The wine list complemented the food perfectly and was well priced, all delivered by really friendly staff. I can't recommend this enough, just make sure you book!!

Midweek the staff were not phased by our re-booking due to traffic and even then, late arrival. Lovely food and drink served promptly. Spacious toilets if sharing with children. Sonos WiFi for fans! A refreshment stop to savour rather than rush in, eat and go.

I've known and visited restaurants in this building for over 15 years. The latest is The Tickled Pig which I'd not eaten at until now. This type of restaurant might have been called a bistro years back denoting simple, unfussy decor and food. The decor might be unfussy but the food quality is approaching high-end, but without the price tag.... More

I surprised my wife with a visit to 'The Tickled Pig' when we stayed in the area for our 10th wedding anniversary. During booking I had mentioned that we were celebrating and, from the moment we arrived, the staff made it a very special occasion. In fact t staff were brilliant throughout our meal. A special mention to Nikki (I... More

This is a cosy and attractive restaurant in the centre of Wimborne. The staff are welcoming, friendly efficient and accommodating but not intrusive. The food is excellent, well presented and reasonably priced, given the quality. I would normally mark down a restaurant that does not use all organic ingredients, but enjoyed the experience here so much that it felt churlish... More

Fab staff and faultless food. Had a lovely cosy evening here with a group of us from work. Staff were very attentive and they had a great midweek menu offer of 3 courses for £20. Will definitely be back :)

My partner and I were staying in Wimborne at a holiday cottage for his birthday. We made a reservation and had a delicious meal at The Tickled Pig. The restaurant is in a very quaint old building with great decor. We were sat upstairs. When we arrived, it was very busy and so upstairs was really quite warm. The service... More

We went to this restaurant for the second time after being impressed the first time. Again very well cooked main meals but one was of a very small portion. Disappointed !
