After living in Algarve for 3 months we found this place on a bike ride. Glad we did. Shows English football matches and does a fab Sunday roast.

Delicious food in hearty portions at really reasonable prices. A warm welcome from the staff and funny banter with the landlord. Would recommend to any Brits visiting the area! Ideally placed for some proper grub after a day on beautiful Burgau beach. Lively in the evenings with frequent entertainment.. Definitely worth a visit!

A perfect Sunday lunch for all the family including a vegetarian dish. Choices of large or medium portions of Beef, Pork, Lamb or Chicken complete with a superb selection of vegetables. There was also a lovely array of traditional English puddings on offer with incredibly generous portion sizes served with either ice-cream, cream or custard. All in all we had... More

If you are British and enjoy an enormous Sunday lunch for a very low price then this is the place for you. Portions are huge and service was swift. Clientele appeared to be all British. However, if you are more of a gourmet and like a beautiful dining room with a view - go elsewhere. Just what we needed today.

We walked in to this British pub with lots of beer taps and sport on the big screens and were immediately welcomed by a Northerner who could look like Buster Bloodvessel. Enough said, really. We were with our sons (18 & 16), and the landlord spoke with them as if they were customers, and not add ons to the older... More

The Pigs is a decent pub serving good beer and Sunday lunch. Don't go here for Portuguese food as its a typical English pub offer but it's a nice place with an entertaining owner. Worth a visit

Once again we have been thoroughly spoilt by the sheer quality and value for money that every customer receives at the Pigs Head. The beef and chicken pies are amazing and when only a few of you order the deserts on offer, yes you guessed it, the others ask for extra spoons! You can't knock this place, it's obvious that...
