Small but perfectly formed, this is a great micropub/bar where you can have a good-quality drink. People seem to chat to each other here and the atmosphere is very friendly. No food but bar snacks available. It's dog-friendly!

I visited last September when I was in the area and I was very impressed. I was made to feel very welcome and stayed far longer than I intended which was purely down to the landlord and the customers. A must visit if you are...More

Visited my Son for the weekend. It’s his local and he highly recommended it. Cosy pub with a great atmosphere. Wish we had something like this nearer to home. Keep up the good work.

Popped in to have a look and try some of the beers and wasn't disappointed - a fantastic selection of craft beer and cider. Really enjoyed our visit as did my wife. Thanks for the hospitality.

I've been coming here on and off since it was originally opened by the team behind the magnificent Fat Pig and its sister pub Tabac. The Pig & Pickle has recently left the stable (or should that be sty?) and is now under new ownership....More

Nno one in whenwe got there. not your normal micro pub with 3 beers on hand pump as opposed to a cool room at the back with a greater selection.

Great beers, great music, great whiskies. This little bar is exactly what Heavitree needs. It manages to serve a fab range of often quite hard to find beers without being at all pretentious. Best bar in the area.

We are a small (500 sq feet)independent pub, hence calling it a micropub, we serve ales, ciders and lagers from mostly local breweries but also from elsewhere and have a fine selection of spirits. As we don't have a separate kitchen our food is designed to be an accompaniment to the beers and so we serve small plates and other snacks.
