Restaurant description

Tucked away within the West Sussex countryside, The Curious Pig in the Parlour offers homecooked British food and wood-fired pizzas in a sweetly eccentric setting. In warm weather, the sprawling, leafy beer garden is the perfect place to laze around and soak up the sun while you enjoy a meal and a pint al fresco.

The deliciously hearty menu includes a selection of different cuts of steak cooked to your liking in a charcoal oven, served with a choice of sides, homemade steak burger with mixed leaves, red onion, fresh tomato, gherkin & a special burger sauce, served with thick cut chips, and a list of mouth-watering pizzas, including The Curious Pig Special, topped with roasted bacon, pulled pork shoulder, pork meatballs, tomato sauce, mozzarella, red onion, sweet caramelised apple, sage & rocket pesto, fresh watercress & homemade parsnip crisps.

Sharing platters crammed with sticky pork ribs, honey mustard sausages, scotch egg and roast ham are also available, alongside a stellar selection of drinks. With rustic furniture, mismatched chairs & a collection of quirky wall décor, The Curious Pig in the Parlour boasts a cosy shabby-chic interior.

The Curious Pig in the Parlour in - Crawley is a 10-minute drive Gatwick Airport Railway Station.

    Staff Friendly, booked online without hassle . sat inside , car park busy so guess most people ate outside. Covid signs good. This is the second time we found the food to be expensive and just not great enough for the cost. We enjoyed the discount but all said that it felt expensive for what we had and if we where charged full rate would have been even more disappointed. Its difficult to say exactly what was wrong but the room needed painting so the "feel" of the room was off from the start. Menu limited but you can understand that with everything going on Covid wise. Staff good but food just not good enough for us to return, we are eating out again tonight but back to Wiremill as the food quality matches the cost more. Hope this helps as we have eaten at the Pig many times before but won't be going back until we hear good review from friends.

    A little disappointed that there were 4 starters, none of which I liked. Good choice of mains, chose the belly pork pizza which was gorgeous and would have it again. Only 2 deserts, had the brownie. Good social distancing, polite staff, very helpful. Must say the waitress that served us was smiley, friendly, helpful and not too over attentive. Unfortunately I didn’t get her name but she was from South America, had a little boy and lived in Ardingly !! .... an asset to the restaurant. Reminded that we only had 2 hours inside the restaurant but were happy to let us stay in the garden and enjoy a drink in the sun.
