5 reviews of Pretty Pigs Inn in English
The pretty pigs is amazing value for money. You cannot complain when you can get a full Sunday dinner for less than £4. I go at least nice a month, highly recommended

we often eat there and the last time (two days ago) was nearly as good as always the food is good service is fine staff pleasant, the only thing we noticed this time was the absents of boiled potatoes, cauliflower and cheese. Will still be eating there again
was very disappointed with this xmas meal and service, we had to ask twice for out table to be cleared of dirty crockery after finishing our starters and our main meal, we could hardly move it seemed we were put in a corner and left, the turkey was very dry and the beef tasted like it was processed, the starters and the sweets were very nice except for the chocolate yule log which seemed to be put in a dish with just a squirt of cream, we went last year and we could not fault it that is why we booked to go this year, but after the service this year we will be finding somewhere else to go, we were told that they had to put two more tables in the room as somebody over booked but that is not our fault.
Huge value for money is the easiest way to describe this carvery pub. At the time of writing, £3.50 was the price we just paid for an adult carvery meal. Applies Mon-Sat.
Staff were pleasant, tables clean, good family atmosphere. Great views of the lake from the rear and fenced area for children to play.
Finding a table is a free-for-all, with no organisation from the staff. Can be frustrating on busy days. My only gripe about the Pretty Pigs.
The quality of the carvery food is almost comparable with Toby Inns. Not bad at all. Considering the price (less than half the price of a Toby carvery) it’s outstanding value.
The chocolate fudge sundae is not on the same par though. I recommend having pie and custard.
One of the best carveries in the Midlands in my opinion, The Pretty Pigs Inn in Tamworth serves consistently delicious food and has an excellent clean play area for the kids’ which my three always enjoy.
When you enter you pay for your meal at the bar and will be given a ticket to give the staff over by the carvery, who will then sort out your meal. A very simple and effective system which means there is rarely much hanging around as you can take your ticket to the table if there’s a queue and pop over to the food once the line dies down.
The food is always piping hot and extremely fresh tasting; when we visited last week I had turkey and beef, although there were other meats to choose from too. The turkey was wonderful and buttery with the most deliciously crisp skin, I almost went back up for seconds but didn’t want to look like a greedy pig in the Pretty Pig!
The veggies available are always cooked beautifully and there is a much wider choice than other carveries in the area. Carrots, peas, sweetcorn, parsnips, onions, cauliflower, cabbage and green beans are usually on the menu and you’re urged to have as much veg on your plate as you want - I love veg so didn’t need telling twice and piled my plate with veggies to the point that I had to eat most of them before I could even uncover my meat!
With my meat I was given a large fluffy Yorkshire pudding and a good size crispy stuffing ball. Both of these were beautifully cooked and seasoned, I ended up eating four stuffing balls because my kids’ didn’t want theirs and I felt I could have eaten more they were so lovely.
At the end of the carvery you choose which gravy and sauces you’d like to add to your meal, the meaty gravy is wonderfully fresh and absolutely the perfect accompaniment to my dinner. I also had a dollop of cranberry sauce and some horseradish.
There is also a standard menu at the Pretty Pig, although to be completely honest with you the carvery is so good that I have never felt the need to look for anything else. My daughter had steak and chips once which was excellent and very reasonably priced compared to other eateries in the area.
All prices in the Pretty Pig are good actually, and during the school holidays they often run promotions whereby kids’ can eat cheaply or discounted adult meals. This can make eating out much cheaper than you expect and considering the quality of the food in here even full price is a bargain in my opinion.
Of course you can have a drink with your meal; all the big name lagers, ciders and spirits are represented and priced on a par with other pubs in the area. Soft drinks are very reasonably priced which is excellent news as with three children it means their drinks often cost more than our alcoholic beverages over the course of the visit, not so here and there are also a variety of soft drinks to choose from.
