Pig ‘N’ Whistle West End
Pig ‘N’ Whistle, the popular pub and restaurant chain, expanded to Brisbane’s inner south in December 2015, setting up a brand new spot on Melbourne Street in West End. Taking over the space formerly occupied by Era Bistro, Pig ‘N’ Whistle has rejuvenated the space with a new open-plan dining and bar format. The bar has been fitted out with state-of-the-art beer taps, with one of the largest range of craft beers available in the area as well as a substantial wine offering. Spanning breakfast, lunch and dinner options, the menu offers modern favourites and traditional pub fare with a refined approach. From 7:00 am, Pig ‘N’ Whistle West End opens for breakfast, helping diners kick-start their morning with a range of dishes worth rising early for. Popular favourites such as bacon and eggs, haloumi and avocado on sourdough and muesli share menu space with intriguing options such as cherry ripe French toast, a full English breakfast and a selection of five breakfast smoothies. The rest of the menu is divided into light meals, share plates, British pub classis, steaks from the paddock, pizzas, mains and desserts as well as a few lunch only options. There is something to cater for every diet and hunger level, but standouts include the beef & Guinness pie, chicken and mango salad, meaty beef short ribs and the passionfruit roulade for dessert.
