Tl;dr: £11.50 for a dry baguette after 45 mins is just not good enough. Saga: I came here a year ago and wrote a partly critical review because although everything else was good my Reuben was disappointing and expensive. The owner replied to me saying...More

Terrific service appalling food and unbearably noisy. This wasn't the place for a quiet meal for two on a Saturday evening. All but two of the tables accommodated from 8 to about 20 diners and large parties were the order of the day. A shared...More

Before I went to the Pig & Pallet I decided it might help to let go of any expectations and just go with it. It is quirky, there are large potentially shared tables as well as booths, the decor is shed-like, there are games available...More

Had a quick evening meal here. Very friendly and welcoming staff and a really low key relaxed atmosphere. Great range of beers. Food delicious. And a great deli so you can take home a locally produced item for loved ones.More

HI there, We are an American Style BBQ Restaurant so the focus really is meat based. If you want Vegan food there are some things we do that you can eat but you'll need to let them know as it will require removing some items... 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).
