Great quirky, fun, casual dining, meat focused, artisan style restaurant - great steaks, burgers and sides with a nice beer/cider and wine range....

Second visit and not the last. So many superlatives , the place is a joy and must be good for Topsham. Just so relaxing and friendly. A real meat eaters delight. May it continue for a long time. If you’ve not been, you need to ask yourself why.

Very friendly staff greeted us when we arrived. The food was delicious, especially the burger which is one of the tastiest I have ever had. Will definitely go back, especially as it was difficult to decide what to have from the menu as everything sounded so good. Quirky restaurant that will be great to take more friends to. Looking forward to going back!

Fantastic customer service, sadly did not enjoy the food. Chips very oily and meat very bland but I think this was a case of me making the wrong decision about choice.

Great meat-based food, perfectly cooked, in an appropriate 'barbecue' ambience. Maybe not the greatest value on all menu items, though my rack of pork ribs (£19 with chips and salad) was more than ample for superb pork. Great that they are supporting lots of local suppliers and really high quality meat, which is definitely worth a premium. Really good selection of bottled beers, though limited on draught beer choice when we went.

Fantastic food and a lovely relaxed environment. The staff were wonderful and really made our experience what it was. They helped us with our menu choices and could not have been more welcoming and accommodating especially with our 1 year old. We had a meat sharing platter and a gorgeous macaroni cheese between us and everything was beautifully cooked and completely delicious!! My only regret is that we live so far away from Topsham and can’t visit The Pig and Pallet more often!! Please open one in Hampshire!!!

Really enjoy coming here. My son chose it for his birthday breakfast with family. My breakfast choice wasn’t the best but that’s just choice. But everyone else enjoyed theirs and it won’t stop me from coming again, because the quality and taste is always great.

We've been to the Pig and Pallet several times before and always loved it. This time was no different! Food was really tasty, and it's such a cool place to spend an evening. We'll be back again, and probably again after that...!

What a great find. The food was excellent and the atmosphere cool too. It was a busy night so we did have to wait a while but they only have a small kitchen and the atmosphere and staff made up for any delays. Would certainly recommend for a fun, relaxed evening.

I booked a table for my birthday and the food was exquisite. Real no-nonsense food that will fill any hole. One particular food I'd recommend was a condiment. The bacon jam was incredible and went with everything!

Definitely worth the drive and so friendly and welcoming too. If you're lucky enough, you'll see the chef take some of the meat smoking outside the entrance of the restaurant.

Made to feel very welcome upon arrival and felt in no way rushed to make an order. The place looks the part and the smells from the open kitchen were awesome. Extensive menu with something for everyone. The food we had was cooked perfectly and I am going to recommend to all of my mates and work colleagues.

Sadly they did not have food available that we wanted. 1 order of ham egg and chips was cold. Several things were not available. Felt it was very overpriced for what we received! They did however not charge for the ham egg and chips and some drinks but it didn't really make up for our experience! I felt that the position of the pig and pallet was possibly used as an excuse to charge much higher prices. Food served in plastic baskets and cold enamel plates is not really what I would expect for somewhere charging £18 for a burger! In Devon we are surrounded by pubs and restaurants who offer the same standards of meat from local farms without the trendy price.

Unfortunately the Pig and pallett did not have a note of my Open Table reservation which I had to show them on my phone.
This is a busy, child and dog friendly place. The seating is on long wooden benches inside a large shed with a wooden door that kept banging as people went in and out. It was a very cold day and there was very little heating so we kept our coats on. There was no wine list but I asked for a glass of house wine which was perfectly good. The service was friendly and the waiter suggested we shouldn't over order as portions were on the big side. I had a burger which came rare, just as I asked, and it was utterly delicious.I would thoroughly recommend.

Authentic cooking using the best quality (locally sourced) meats, paired with great service is always going to be a winner with me, and that's exactly what they do here.
We had a great meal and a very enjoyable evening all round.
