The Square Pig
6 reviews of The Square Pig in English
This place gets packed, especially with the after work crowd, but then who wants to go drinking in an empty bar with no atmosphere! I’ve only eaten here once and that was a while ago, but the food was good and not over pricey.
This is a trendy wine bar but in no way intimidating or snooty which I find some wine bars to be. It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, although it does get very noisy but this just proves it’s popularity. Although busy, surprisingly I still managed to park my bottom on a comfy, leather sofa. It’s a fairly large venue but also has an intimate edge. I only stopped for a drink but watching other people tucking into the food gives me an excuse to go back and sample their culinary delights.
This is one of my favourite places for a work pub lunch. True, the service is nothing special and it’s a run-of-the-mill pub decoration wise. But the food is always good, with the hamburgers a constant and ever-popular with my colleagues. I am yet to be disappointed by their selection of daily specials, which are always varied and interesting and well-priced.
The larger tables are roughly-hewn with benches and when you go in a group make for a nicer atmosphere. It also has an outside area for the smokers around.
Good for a lunch time meal with your office friends but in the evening it gets too full which is surprising considering the lack of atmosphere the place has. Cant recommend highly enough for lunches though
This is a regular haunt of those who work locally in Holborn, offering far better service and food than in other local bars or pubs.
Recently revamped with a much darker interior, it still is a great place to either catch up over lunch, meet up for a bottle of wine or a few beers after work or even to hire the downstairs 'Swine Bar' for a private function. Even if you turn up with a large group unannounced the Manager is always helpful and will do everything he can to make space for you ... even if means gently removing two people who are hogging a seating area designed for 8!
The food - although not bargain-bucket cheap - is of consistent good quality and they have plenty of daily specials to choose from. In my opinion, the burgers are one of their redeeming features and they are served on cute wooden slabs which makes you think "aaahhh, PROPER food!"
A broad selection of wines are available from across the world - as you might expect from a City wine-bar - and most are also available "by the glass". They also sell Bulmers! And plenty of other beers and lagers - some on the pumps, but for a wider selection check out their chiller cabinets. Glasses and cutlery are always spotless here too (these little things make us happy).
The bar staff are never in any great rush but we have always found them to be helpful and friendly, even during the 6pm melee!
