Ordered a medium rare steak, which was only cooked on one side only. The waiter said the chef can't cook a medium rare on both sides, as it will then be over cooked. As a chef myself, its clearly obvious the chef who cooked the steak is POORLY TRAINED. A steak needs to be cooked on both sides due to... More

A group of 7 friends dined at our local Hogs Breath on a recent Friday night. We ordered as soon as our waiter arrived and sat chatting while waiting for our meal. Two other couples arrived and sat at separate tables in our area and their orders were taken well after ours. Two of our meals arrived and we waited... More

We went to hoggs for dinner first time at this establishment.....Food was very good quality but the service really needs to improve with many waitresses walking past us for a long time while waiting to be served. One of our steak knives was very unclean and we told the waiter to the response "its ok ill get you a new... More

We dined for dinner. The service was good and the entrée came out quick as did our mains. The food was delicious and generous servings and the steak very tender but over cooked. The staff offered to get another but lucky it was tender and tasted great or I would of had it replaced.

We ate here in the very busy January holidays and were very impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff during a very busy time for them. Food quality was great and we were attended to very quickly. Food waiting time was reasonable considering the busy nature of the restaurant and some big groups eating in. Our food was... More

I'm not always one to complain about Hogs Breath as I've eaten at ones closer to where I lived and enjoyed the food and service. This one is the polar opposite. When we were eventually greeted at the door we were informed there were no more 18 hour steaks (didn't think anything of it at the time but looking through... More

Hogs Breath Cafe was an alright place to stop for a bite to eat and offers a wide menu range. The meals are great value, and you always leave full. Salads and chicken or steak were the only gluten-free options on the menu. It took a while for the food to come, but it was rather busy. While we ate,... More
