We cannot think of anywhere where we have not been made so welcome as the Pigs Head. We are quite worldly travelled and never have we met so many ex pats that have been so genuinely friendly; we didn't experience any of the "hello darling" crowd. They have a fantastic range of drinks, two huge bars and despite being absolutely... More

It was a rainy day, feeling homesick so to the pigs head. Choice of lamb, beef, chicken, gammon for Sunday lunch. Med or large. Lovely food. The waitress was amazing worked so hard and really switched on. Must book though.

Enjoyed delicious fish and chips and Lasagne served by a lovely obviously busy lady. Very friendly patrons and bar staff. Need to try the Sunday lunch whilst we are here. Thank you.

Sunday lunches do not get better than at the pigs head. Theres a great variety of meats, an array of fresh vegetables, Yorkshire pud, stuffing and lashings of hot gravy. And all this for a very agreeable price, whether you choose the large or regular size meal. Great!!

Great food, great hosts and great company. Will always do their best to accommodate a gluten free menu too. If you're in or near Burgau then definitely pay a visit.

I travel a lot and eat out frequently and it is not at all in my culture to go to a Brit restaurant in a beautiful place like Burgau. But I had just arrived and I met a UK couple in a bar on Christmas eve and it was sympathique and they invited me to join them for Christmas dinner... More

rotnpat, Owner at Pigs Head, responded to this review

Despite considering you beneath contempt,I have decided to respond to this prejudiced and anti British rhetoric that masquerades as a review. In a scene which parodied the biblical tale depicted in the good book,there was indeed no room at the inn.Infact there had been no room since mid October,due largely to the immense popularity of our establishment on Christmas Day.You...

Well I awoke to the acrid smell of lorry tyres burning, a smell I associated with the hell in Aleppo, we dodged around the inebriates and low life of society through the smokescreen and then we were captured by a band of pigs, tied to very utilitarian chairs the kind that leave impressions on your posterior and force fed beef...
