We really enjoyed our meal, the food was delicious and service attentive. The food was a little slow coming out but definitely worth the wait!

    Interesting menu and excellent food, tho the risotto was rather too rich woth too much parmesan. Excellent friendly service.

    The restaurant was very quiet and the staff were very quick to get us through our meal. Then at the end of the evening were a little impatient for us to go. The food was very good though.

    It was unfortunately a nightmare evening. Somehow they had taken bookings for over 100 covers between 7.30-8.00pm. Our main courses arrived after 10.30pm. The Manager was very apologetic and gave us free drinks and wine but those that didnt have a starter, were starving. Added to this, one of the main courses was stone cold when it did arrive and had to be sent back. Our guest then refused to eat a new hot main when it arrived. Normally a good safe bet for a meal but would definitely have to think twice about going there ever again.

    We were happy with starters and main course . I was pleased the belly pork had a crispy top but was not melt in the mouth and had a hard section on the base. We only ordered one desert. This was the white chocolate rice pudding but this was undercooked and the rice was hard so this was not eaten or paid for. Service was quite slow but as we were spending time with friends this was fine rather than a problem

    We dined at the Black Pig for the first time having lived in the town for over 8 years.
    Parking was a problem - as we had to park on double yellows, on the curb in a side street...
    We DID like the pub's cross rustic & restaurant setting and atmosphere.
    However, the tables are quite large (?), and it did not make it suitably accommodating for a close conversation.
    The food was excellent though, but we found the drinks hugely expensive...!!
    The staff were young & friendly, nevertheless very ‘pushy’ firstly
    * To gather up plates from the table too quickly (before one had finished eating)?.
    * Secondly to try to entice us to drink more. I realised this (tactic) once I’d seen the drinks bill !

    Overall would not class as the experience as value for money (purely on high cost of drinks). And probably would not rush back…!?
