Totally informal, burger restaurant with a youthful and fun vibe, but perfectly welcoming to all ages. Very meaty (and excellent veggie) burgers with a great choice of sauces and sides. Lots of tasty local produce. Similar to places I've visited in America, but better than...More

We dropped in to the Pig and Pallet for lunch, whilst just pottering around Topsham. Not surprisingly, the menu is very "pig" orientated, and I don't think we made the most of it, as we were not hungry enough for one of the larger options...More

Description
Relaxed and informal. Some communal dining and some smaller tables. We are a butcher using classic methods from British and European sales to produce our own cured meats. We also take influences from American BBQ to produce well cooked smoked meats. We make everything possible ourselves. We make Pastrami for the Reubens, Franks for the dogs. We are very pleased with our award winning burgers. Be sure to ask what the secret is to a great burger (by the way there is no secret just use great dry aged Devon beef with salt and pepper).
