About

Spearheaded by acclaimed chef James Allcock, previously of Hull’s 1884 Dock Street Kitchen and Burnt Truffle in Heswall, this pint-sized neighbourhood bistro celebrates flair and flexibility in equal measure.

“We’re open six days a week for all types of visits,” says James. “It could be a special event that’s planned in advance, a satisfying lunch during a day of shopping, or even a light bite at our bar. Whatever people are in the mood for, we’re ready to welcome them through our door.”

The cosmopolitan nature of the market town goes hand in hand with a strong brunch and lunch culture. This is an area where The Pig & Whistle excels, presenting the Lunchtime Croque (a sourdough toastie from just £5.50 that can also be ordered to take away with a coffee) and a wide-ranging brunch menu. The aesthetic bistro is equally ideal for a quick drink or sweet treat.

“Our passion is exceptional food, and our mission is exemplary customer service,” says James. “We have a huge range of dishes and snacks available, half of which are vegetarian, and the entire menu can also accommodate those who want a gluten free experience. Whilst specialising in small plates, we promise that you won’t leave feeling hungry.”

This is evident as soon as you read the menu, with appetising offerings the likes of tartines (a French-style open sandwich), hearty stews such as beef bourguignon and braised game, and the alpine ski favourites of tartiflette, raclette, and Vacherin cheese served like fondue, which is perfect for dipping cured meats, potatoes, salad and bread.

As for the drinks menu, over forty wines selected for their quality and variety sit alongside a range of champagne, sherry and port. These cater for all budgets too, from £3.50 a glass and £18 a bottle, through to superb vintages that are a real treat for the palate. There’s also a “Skinny” Prosecco, made with the best grapes and a lot less sugar.
