    I had mentioned in my booking for a table for 3 that we were celebrating my mums 90th birthday and the staff really went out of their way to make it a special lunch. There were decorations and a card on the table and they had seated us next to the fire- a thoughtful touch on a cold day. The food was really tasty, Mum had never had Tapas so was a bit uncertain at first as she can’t eat spicy food, but there was a wide enough choice on the menu to enable us to choose 6 dishes which suited her palate. All were great but our favourite was the lamb cooked in teo pepe which was tender and delicious. Will certainly be visiting again.

    Gorgeous little restaurant. Came for my birthday and they had a card waiting for me. The staff were extremely friendly and hopeful and the food was just amazing. My 21 month old son who’s normally fussy absolutely loved his lunch.

    The food is amazing. We always go to one of greedy Gordon's establishments and this is one of our favourites. For a fantastic breakfast, brunch or tapas, this is the place to go. The service is second to none, and the building is lovely and quaint. Definitely recommend

    It was the first time I’d been to the Pig and Waffle and I was really looking forward to it but I was sadly disappointed. The food was not very hot and not particularly tasty either. It all tasted like leftovers. The service started off really well but once it got to 8.30 we felt like we were outstaying our welcome although we didn’t arrive until 7.30. They tried to clear plates and good before we’d finished eating. Such a shame.

    Lovely pub gorgeous food, only negative was we were bought our bill straight away after they took our plates away when we intending to relax and have another drink, we left the bill on the side ordered another drink and the waitress bought the card machine straight away…. It was only 08:30 not sure why this was as they weren’t busy but weren’t closing either

    Fabulous Boxing Day meal for my family of 4. Lot's of tapas options with many of them gluten-free . This allowed us to share most of our choices as my daughter needs gluten-free food. The food was fantastic with lots of different flavours to try. The atmosphere was very relaxed, comfortable and not hurried. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would certainly go again and recommend to others. Thank you.

    Myself and my two best friends from schooldays went to celebrate her 50 something birthday? It was my first time at The Pig & Waffle and it defintley wont be the last! From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out we had a most enjoyable time. Our food was delivered piping hot with a warm and genuine smile from our waitress. Our food arrived within a very reasonable time frame from ordering. We were not rushed or interupted too many times. As it was a few days before Christmas the decor was suitably decorated and a nice touch was a small Xmas tree tied in a hesian sack on the table along with Xmas crackers. As we were getting ready to leave and paid our bill. We were approached by a friendly member of staff enquiring if we had any Grand Children? ( Yes we are that old?). I have 2 nieces and one nephew and my friend a Grand- daughter.She quickly returned with four paper bags with gifts from Santa! This was areally generous and lovely touch. Thankyou. Happy New Year xxx

    This is set up as a restaurant so doesn’t have a ‘bar area’ like a more traditional pub. Each area is quite small, and they’ve squeezed tables in - but they’re made of scaffold poles which doesn’t leave much room for your legs. The deco was a bit much for us and the lights a tad bright. The staff were really friendly and the food was decent, and the dessert was ok - we’ll return to try the savoury waffles.

    As regular visitor I am impressed by new menu which has broadened the choice significantly. The beer menu has suffered slightly from the change but the food as excellent as always. The issue is with the service which was inattentive and clearly untrained. Having to breakdown the bill for the server was embarrassing for both of us. Having the a clearly ill server isn’t the best way to run a restaurant and this shows in the abundance of empty tables. I love the GG group but standards of service much be upheld whilst trading at these prices. It won’t stop me coming again, but our experience wasn’t what it has been in the past.

    Food was delicious, good portion sizes & very well made. Staff were very pleasant & polite but a bit slow at checking if we needed anything after clearing plates away. I asked a question about the menu, the staff member went to ask & never came back with answer. I had to ask another staff member who came to take our order. Lovely place though & the food was fantastic.

    This is our 4th visit, the last being a year ago. The prices have increased and the portions have de creased, very disappointed to be honest, £9 for two small pieces of cod. We had 11 dishes between 3 adults each costing between £5-10, I would not return again based of the cost and leaving hungry. Also we were put to the side of the restaurant where the only ambiance was listening to the staff discuss the christmas rota even though the restaurant was not full. Really disappointed but did not want to complain as it was our son's birthday meal.

    The welcome was v. good as usual. There were 2 ladies in, and a young child making a lot of noise ,but they soon went. The food was superb, hot and delicious. Such a choice of Tapas, cooked to perfection by the in house Spanish chef. The sweets were scrumptious and soon disappeared. A bit pricey, but worth every penny ! We will be returning a few more times.

    The building, decor and “feel” of the restaurant is fantastic and really modern. The service is very slow and the staff - while lovely and very polite - don’t know the food or drinks menu well enough to guide guest choices. Cocktails are alright, bloody mary’s are very good, wine is blah…they didn’t have two of the bottles on the menu, but didn’t tell us upfront. we just happened to notice and asked why then they fessed up - I’m always suspicious when that happens. Dishes are really hit or miss. Cod with chimchirri is gorgeous as is croquetas. Would recommend giving the veal (very chewy), black pudding (served out out of a trifle dish), Frito Misto (frozen seafood bag deep fried) and pork belly a very wide berth. I so wish this place was better - the concept is great and the setting in quirky with a great ambiance, it’s just not well executed. As a fellow diner put it: “it’s ok to go for dinner, but you wouldn’t go back”
