We had a lovely welcome back to the Pigs Head and instantly felt at home again! We ate there 4 times whilst we were on holiday and each time the meals were excellent. Stir fries are a must for both of us, hake and prawn creole for me and curries, whilst himself liked the pies and the sweet and sour... More

A sizeable 'home from home' British style pub serving huge Sunday roasts with friendly, welcoming owners and staff. They also feature popular sports on a selection of wide screens throughout the bar and extensive outside areas and whilst we enjoyed these too on separate occasions, they didn't interfere with our family Sunday roast. Other menus are available throughout the week,... More

We cannot think of anywhere where we have not been made so welcome as the Pigs Head. We are quite worldly travelled and never have we met so many ex pats that have been so genuinely friendly; we didn't experience any of the "hello darling" crowd. They have a fantastic range of drinks, two huge bars and despite being absolutely... More

Sunday lunches do not get better than at the pigs head. Theres a great variety of meats, an array of fresh vegetables, Yorkshire pud, stuffing and lashings of hot gravy. And all this for a very agreeable price, whether you choose the large or regular size meal. Great!!
