Absolutely amazing food, outstanding service and was amazed with the outdoor seating area It was so lovely to go somewhere a bit different and have such amazing food. I have been speaking about my meal all day today and recommending to everyone. Thank you for a briliant evening.

Brendan was very helpful after some mix up with the booking system. I really felt that he went the extra mile to ensure I was happy. The food was lovely and quick service!

The Pig and Whistle is one of our favourite restaurants, great food and drink, always a friendly welcome and service and always a lovely walk across the Essex countryside to get to you 😊

Well set up for the outdoors- can’t control the weather! Five of us had the roast beef which comes with 2 slices of beef- however one of us only got one. For £19, I think there could’ve been more beef and more veg offered for a party of six, rather than one bowl to share. Also, one of us ordered a lager shandy- appreciate you may not have pumps for lemonade but £8.50 for this drink is a bit OTT. When we didn’t require desserts, the waitress’ seemed very surprised and the other member of staff made a comment, “sad face”...we were made to feel guilty for not wanting to have a third course.

A wonderful lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Team are fantastic, and they have created a lovely outside area that feels homely. Delicious food as always. Will definitely return, and hopefully to the sun terrace with that beautiful view.

I love this restaurant and even though it was outside dining they had made the setting so beautiful and kept the menu to the same usual standard. I can 💯 recommend this restaurant. Never had anything I could fault

It was great to be eating out and everything felt very covid safe. The staff were very friendly and helpful. However, I felt food and drink were quite expensive but with all the difficulties that will have been experienced due to covid I was happy just to support a local business. The food was quite disappointing as the duck was rather tasteless. Combining the cost and quality of the food I regret that I have not been encouraged to go back again.
