Was grunted at in the courtyard as we arrived by an older man who was wiping off tables. He was so rude. Once we signed in via the QR code he rudely demanded to see we had done it correctly. I understand this is standard COVID procedure but he was just so rude. We sat down and 5 minutes later we left as we had such a horrible greeting. Can’t comment on food as we did not hang around. We went to the mall and had a delicious lunch where we received excellent service and were treated with respect from the staff at Jimmy’s. Never ever will we return to the Riverside Pig and Whistle

Overall we had a really enjoyable time dining at the Pig and Whistle riverside. Highlights are the Steak and Guinness pie and the eye fillet with truffle mash and mushrooms/broccolini. The steak was cooked beautifully and the accompaniments were really nice - great value and better that this type of dish I've had at other more 'fine dining' places.

We celebrated St Patrick’s Day a few days early at Pig’N’Whistle Riverside. The staff were fantastic(& funny!), the atmosphere was great and the band - The Barrows - were awesome! We’ll definitely go back!

Food was great and so was the venue.
The customer service started out great until they made us feel like they were trying to get rid of us at 8.00pm just dropping the bill at the table.

We have such amazing time there celebrating our graduation. It was 3 friends has booked together for our friends and family be with us in the this special day. We tried other bars, and they didn’t offer this atmosphere. Great space, live music, outstanding service. I strongly recommend this place if you wanna have a good time.

Staff were rude - minimal patrons but waited in a bar line for 10 minutes just to be seated then waitress was rude & abrupt - went for drinks & was then overlooked by bar man so he could serve his friend & have a jolly chat - was very disappointed & have been to several PnW’s. Food was good though.

Great family lunch during the quiet holiday period for the Pig and Whistle.

There is a good variety of dishes on the menu which are reasonably priced and with generous serves.

It is quiet at lunchtimes but gets very busy with the after work crowd.

Would recommend for groups of friends or families

We have visited the Pig & Whistle before so it was a known venue.

There was a minor hitch as the booking didn't come seem to come through but we were found a table quickly.
The food and drink, as well as the service, was very good.
