    Have been coming weekly. Have always found staff great & accomadating. Meals have always been good and consistent... until today. Waitress who took our order was rude & condescending & argumentative. Understand it states on the menu that during busy periods they have the right to refuse changes and to notify of any dietary requirements. When I requested that the side on my meal be changed from roast potatoes to chips due to the onions. She said no, changes during busy periods, when I stated that there were only 2 other tables in service & that I can't eat the onions with the roast potatoes & that they have done this change many times. She advised she'd speak with the kitchen. When she returned she said I told you they would say no. But that I could purchase the chips separately for $5. When I pointed out to her that I need to spend extra money as well as waste food. Which is completely illogical. She then stated the kitchen is short on chips... so I get a different excuse I then ordered the bangers and mash requesting a different gravy as unable to eat onions to which again I was advised no changes. I requested without gravy. When the meals arrived.... My meal had onion gravy all over it. I managed to be able to scrap the onion off one sausage & my partner ate one. Before I gave up eating and pushed my plate away. Waste of time & money going there and such a horrible experience with the waitress. All other staff were fantastic.

    The best parma around by a country mile with Guinness on tap. The portions are massive! What more could you want?

    The chef knows what he is doing - three dishes all cooked perfectly and great flavour. Nice UK feel to the place. Outdoor setting a little rough, but very comfortable if the weather is as pleasant as it was when we were there. Would be nice if the water for the table was chilled a bit more for the warm day, but the beer was cold - and the Pig and Whistle has a great choice on tap.

    It's been a long time since eating at the Pig and Whistle, so was looking forward to the energetic vibe and great food. However, we were a little disappointed as we were a few minutes after our scheduled seating time and the gentleman basically said "Oh your lucky that your table is still available". We pretty much ordered our drinks and steak meal straight away. Our steak unfortunately was cooked to perfection, but it was so salty that it was not enjoyable, only ate quarter of it. Roast potatoes were amazing. We spoke to the gentleman about this, but he seemed disinterested and not take on the criticism well. He still charged us the full whack of $40 per steak and the additional surcharge. Very disappointed and therefore won't be going back to the Pig and Whistle.

    Thoroughly enjoy coming to the Pig and Whistle. Our only fault was we asked online for a quieter table and we were out next to a very large noisy table. Not a huge stress just a bit hard as our son is deaf so struggled a bit to hear.

    My husband and I love this place. We went there on December 9 for dinner and my husbands eyes lit up like you wouldn't believe when he saw that you now had Stone and Wood on tap. This was the thing that always missing. We accidently got charged for another tables drinks and it was quickly rectified with many apologies from a number of staff members. Keep up the great work.

    First visit after driving past for years Great selection of beers (Mines the Kilkenny) and wines. The food and service were both excellent. I had the Pommy platter and my wife had the veggie burger. We were both extremely satisfied with the quality and the quantity. Looking around at other diners, they appeared very happy and surprised at the (large) size oil the meals. They all looked great. I managed to save room for a dessert (Well, I didn’t but had one anyway) choosing the lemon meringue. Also excellent. The service was great and cheery staff were on the ball. If there was one suggestion it would be to have another veggie option or two but we checked out the menu before booking so we knew what was on offer. Whet we didn’t know when booking was just how good the food would be. Overall a very good experience and I am happy to recommend the Pig & Whistle to anyone who wants a great meal.

    This place is bangin'. Walked in and were blown away with how authentic it felt. The menu was not too big and the drinks selection was various but not over the top. The meal sizes were fantastic and tasted wonderful. Would 110% recommend to anyone, and would drive the 2.5hrs to visit again!
