We were staying in nearby Monbulk and this venue was recommended to us.
We had booked a table and, on arrival, were shown straight to the table. Water was produced almost immediately and our drinks order taken very soon after we were seated.
The food...was of a very high standard. It was obviously freshly prepared and served within a fairly short time. Given how busy the place was, I was surprised at the speed of service.
The young lady looking after us was an excellent ambassador for The Pig and Whistle. She was very friendly and super-efficient.
The prices on the menu were also very reasonable for the quality of the food.
A most enjoyable night out.
A big "Thank You" to the team from the Pig and Whistle who were on duty on the evening of ANZAC Day.More
My husband went to the Pig and Whistle Tavern two nights in a row as we were so impressed and it was so close to where we were staying in Olinda, within walking distance. The service was excellent and the staff made us feel warm...and welcome. You can go there at 4:30pm and order a meal which is great if you have kids and want to feed them early. A good selection of beers on tap and I can highly recommend the White Rabbit Chocolate Stout yummy. The food is fantastic with a range of different meal options to choose from. We had the Irish Chicken Parma with a curry sauce and battered fish and chips on our first night there and they were delicious. On the second night we had 300g Scotch Fillet on a bed of potato, bacon and spinach with a sweet garlic jus. This was to die for the steak was cooked to perfection and just the right size without feeling too full. This meal is a credit to the chef. My only issue was there is no freshly cracked pepper on the table but this can be supplied by the staff if requested.More
Stopped in here for some dinner, easy to book and were very accomodating.
Food was good solid filling fare. Bangers and mash with spinach with 3 pork bangers almost too much. Neighbouring Parmas were enormous!
We liked the decor and the staff were attentive and...friendly.
Had dinner 6th March, 2021. Can say with all honesty that the steak was cooked to perfection. Perfectly seasoned and melted in your mouth. My partner had the chicken parma which was equally as good. Meal sizes were more than generous. Would recommend to anyone...and everyone who likes a great meal in a lovely relaxed atmosphere.More
Was really busy on the Friday night we visited, but food still arrived promptly. Pork belly was tasty and surprisingly non fatty but could have had a little more gravy. Pie and bangers and mash great sized portions and pork sausages a bonus and indicative...of British branding of the place. Staff were friendly and good selections of beer. Would recommend.More
We loved the pictures and decorations around the pub that gave it a great ambience. The bartender certainly knew his stuff. Both the parma and the Guiness pot pie were great. All the helpings were very large; if you're not big eaters, consider sharing a...meal between two.More
The location has a quaint vibe to it, imitating English pubs in its decor. The dining room was filled with smoke from the wood fire when we arrived, but the staff eventually got this under control. The wait-staff were friendly and efficient, and we did...not wait too long for our drinks or meals to arrive.
The menu is only standard pub faire, nothing out of the ordinary. The quality was quite good, however, serving good examples of these meals. The serving-sizes were about right, as were the prices.More
