Gone are the days of the dark, dingy British theme pub in this newest of whistling piggy establishments.
This Valley pub is a lighter and more modern variation on a theme.
While I was very grateful that they were still making cocktails at 1am (a big tick over our previous bar Sixes and Sevens which kicked everyone out at midnight), my amaretto sour was a bit on the small side- especially for $18. Pictured below is the drink in its entirety without a sip taken out. It tasted great, I would have just liked a bit more of it.
I moved on to the more standard drinks after this, and am happy to report they all came in normal sized servings.
The atmosphere at the Pig was great all night. We were able to procure a booth with ease, but the room was still full of people making the most of a small dance floor in front of the DJ.
The exposed brick was a rosy shade of pink, rather than the usual dark red brick I’ve come to expect from the Pig. This really lifted the whole atmosphere and set off the modern light fittings well.
Just stick to beers though.
