Purple Pig's burgers are simply the best! I've been here several times and it's always fulfilled my expectations and even more. The atmosphere is very nice, the staff is polite and accomodating...the food is amazing. Best burgers in town, there's nothing else I can really say about this place.

Came in for tea as the Grandkids love this place for the atmosphere. They loved it - especially the drinks glasses. The food is okay for adults if you like burgers and meat. Service was as good as always. Overall it was cheap given that there were four of us eating.

Very greasy, simple cooking that is not as good as my own cooking. For the price I expect much more when dining out. The pulled pork was not very good at all and lets be honest, for a pork restaurant, that's unacceptable. I've given it a 2 rating because the cocktails were good.

My first visit and hope it's not my last. We drove 200+ miles and the meal made up for it. Pigs in blankets parmo topped any other I have tried, added with garlic mushrooms. Staff first class and happy to recommend dishes for all of us. See you in the future.

Brought our two granddaughters here for tea - they love it as there is a great atmosphere and they like the food. Food for us adults was okay but the beers were super. Service was as good as usual.

Staff were totally unaware and couldn't be bothered. The food was horrific. The pulled pork was fatty, dry and tasted like it had been sat out. The fries had never seen a spud and resembled the dregs you get in a fryer. Complete let down, waste of money. Too up themselves to believe that you didn't like the food. The... More

The Purple Pig is a cool restaurant that has something for everyone. We combine massive, messy, tasty burgers with fun, crazy cocktails. Throw some loud music in there on weekend evenings and you've got an idea of what the Pig is all about!!
