    Your staff were capable but not very friendly (disinterested is the word that comes to mind - maybe I'm being unfair as it must be hard to welcome someone when you wear a mask). We didn't feel welcomed. The food was Ok but not special. We came because we had seen the Toad in the Hole with Lincolnshire sausages on your FB page. The Yorkshire pudding was crisp on top but soggy at the base. I had the Guinness pie which was OK but just a bowl with a crust on. The veggies and potato were tasteless and looked old. The beer was fine.

    The large undercover area is great for big or small parties. Looking over King George Square is not green, however the foot traffic is entertaining.

    4 of us dined. The meals didn’t come out together and my husband and I had to start our meals otherwise they would have got cold. It was awkward having to eat in front of the other couple still waiting for their meals. We had just finished our meals when the waitress came over and apologised that the other two meals were late and offered a free drink to the other two who had to wait for their meals. I don’t think this was good enough. Our guests came to the pig and whistle on our recommendation and I was embarrassed that they didn’t have a good experience.

    Great central location and the food, service and rapid delivery of meals after ordering was good. Only criticism as an older patron with a level of hearing loss was the volume of the music. Background music hardly seems necessary for a dining experience in my opinion.

    My lunch companion said that his steak and kidney pie barely had any meat and the mash serving was small. Really don't need to economise on mash at that price ...? My chicken burger was very plain. The other two diners were not impressed either. My better half paid $26 for a salad which was mainly just some chopped up iceberg lettuce. BTW MY COFFEE WAS SMALL AND TASTED LIKE 7 ELEVEN COFFEE. Surely a flat white is not that hard!!! Music was too loud and had to be turned down .... Ambience not.

    Dinner was a disaster from start to finish. Seven guests, orders were incorrect and inconsistent with two guests being served first off, then another persons meal arriving approx 20 minutes later and then another two guests meals arriving around 20 mins after that, final two guests waited a hour and a half and despite reminders to staff, last two meals did not materialise. It got to 9 pm when we pulled the plug and had to leave as the baby and Toddler In our party were exhausted, all guests ate separately and two of the party had nothing at all and had to have money refunded for their meal. Staff seemed not to care and when chasing up missing meals, was abruptly told they were on their way, without that member of staff even checking. After waiting a further 30 minutes with still no sign of a meal, we decided enough was enough. When asking who Duty. Manager was, their seemed confusion amongst the staff as to who this was. A celebratory dinner for our family was a disaster. Staff were thin on the ground and we doubt whoever was in the kitchen was a chef or could even cook, even the garlic bread was awful. All in all, terrible service, food quite expensive but very poor quality and poorly cooked. Needless to say we will avoid Dining here ever again and would not recommend to anyone. Save your money in these hard times and stay at home and cook yourself cheaper and more enjoyable food

    It was great to be able to get out and have lunch. II booked but it was very quiet so we had choice of wherever we wanted to sit. Covidsafe ID capture was easy. Food came out quickly and empty plates at the end indicates the food was good. My curry was very good and the parmas my friends had were good as well. Staff were really nice as usual.

    The meals took a long time .. probably 40 mins.. and the only 4 of the 5 meals were delivered with no comment as to how far away the remaining meal was..I waited about ten minutes before having to broach a staff member and ask them how long it will take and I received the "they are just serving it now" comment. It was grilled chicken burger. No way should it have taken that long to come out. The food was mediocre and the place was about 1/5 full. So no real reason for sucha huge delay.

    Food ordered was incorrect and staff tried to make us eat what was put before us when the order was incorrect when taken. Then eventually came out after an hour and everyone else had long since eaten. No discount or any kind of apology was made, on the contrary the waitress made the the guest feel like she was a total inconvenience just because she didn’t eat what was put in front of her.. Not at all happy... we also Ordered two steaks, one was medium to well done and the other medium but both came out completely rare and virtually raw!!! I know it’s busy but this is not acceptable when charging such high prices for food.

    Date night for my partner and I ended up at the Pig N Whistle for dinner. We had a voucher to use and were pleased with the service. The food was impeccable, and the atmosphere of a live performance by a young man with a guitar really set the tone for a wonderful, much needed night out for us. Definitely coming back.

    I met some friends here for breakfast. The food was good & was served very quickly. There weren't many other diners so noise was not an issue & there were enough staff. I have to eat gluten free food. The menu had no hints as to what was gluten free so I asked the server if the omelette was (everything listed appeared to be GF so it should have been). She told me no it wasn't due to the cheese. This was very puzzling as cheese is normally GF so I asked her to check with the chef. I know I am not alone in requiring GF food & in this day & age I would expect better knowledge from the servers & more information on the menu. Most restaurants & cafe's can cater well for GF breakfast as usually substituting the toast for GF toast (or omitting it altogether) is all that is required.

    We would not return to this restaurant again. My husbands dinner came out with a very odd smell, along with two large prawn heads (only 1 tail) and not much else. We sent it back but by the time his was redone I had finished my meal. The service from the bar was very slow also. Will definately not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Very slow for food to arrive.2 of the meals were cold and had to send back. Had to get drinks from bar due to lack of staff. It appeared management had not taken into account that a show was on at city hall. This rating should not affect the staff who were overworked.

    We found the noise level with a solo singer quite loud that we couldn't hear each other across the table but they did turn this down once we asked them to. We also ordered food which took nearly an hour to deliver and were asked if we were all finished and happy with our meals before we were even served them. Our meals came out at different times and after people who had ordered after us. We had to cancel one meal as others at the table were nearly finished before there was any sight of our last meal for the table. The food was very expensive for what it was - $30 for 2 small pieces of chicken with a few vegies - value for money was not really what you were paying for - more the location which was convenient for us.
