The evening beggins and it's time for a glass of wine and a bite, I heard this is the place to go to...
Not disappointed, my friend and me tried different wines by the glass (good recommandations from the staff, they even offered us to try a couple to help the decision) sitting at the bar chatting away with a lovely and friendly staff. The food around us was irresistible so we tried the beef carpaccio... delicious ! The patio at the back must be great in summer !
Would definitly go back next trip down to Kinsale !

We had a dinner reservation for later and were looking for somewhere warm and comfortable to have a drink. The Black Pig filled both needs and some. A lovley open fire, many, many good wines and friendly knowledgeable staff. We even got free cheese to go with our wine. We wished we had longer in Kinsale as we would have loved to go back and have a meal there. Highly recommend it.

Sadly I've spent most of the summer away from Kinsale so I've missed most of a season of this little gem. A wine list which is thankfully free of the usual suspects and full of some interesting and good value choices.
The food is well done, full of local suppliers best produce and tasty. Although the trend these days is local, bringing is one of the finest iberico is a welcome import. For me at the end of a week or on a Sunday night (sadly not in November for Sundays) it's a cool place to chill with a cracking glass of wine and some tasty bites

All the positive reviews on Tripadvisor put me ill at ease a little: I thought it must be some kind of a tourist trap or something. Despite my fears, I booked a table and tried it out.

We arrived early but got a warm welcome and were shown to our very comfortable table. I was very rude to my dining companion, because I couldn't help leafing through the beautiful selection of culinary themed books on display.

I started off with a port and tonic. The sherry selection also went down very well. It's not often I'm genuinely excited by a wine list, but my visit to the Black Pig was one such occasion.

We ate risotto and beef cheek, both of which were good. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly service made this a very enjoyable experience.
