The Square Pig

The Square Pig

Just when you thought it impossible to fall in love with Bloomsbury even more, along comes the newly refurbished and revamped The Square Pig.


The venue itself has been styled to create a warm relaxing feel that's great for get together with mates or even for cosy one-to-ones with that special someone. As well as the new furnishings inside, The Square Pig also has a large decking area to wine and dine the hours away.


Then there's the food. Oh the food! When it comes to their stuffed jalapeno croquettes with black pepper ranch dressing, size really does matter and boy were they the perfect fit! Spicy and tangy jalapeno pepper stuffed with a hot gooey cream cheese that has been deepfried was the stuff that dreams are made of.


But if it's meat you're craving, then you're in for a treat! Their 4oz beef patty smokehouse burger with BBQ sauce and maple bacon will have you in bits! Whilst you try to keep it together. Or there's the epic Pork & Beef Sharing Plate - BBQ glazed 12hr beef short ribs, whole rack of BBQ ribs, Krakauer sausages, red cabbage sauerkraut and fries. Two hands were not enough when eating this. The meat just fell off the bone and melted in the mouth. The sweet and smokey BBQ glaze was beyond heavenly and as for the sausage? Well who doesn't love a long Polish sausage?


Let us depart the world of meat and enter the land of sweet. Chocolate cheesecake with salted caramel ice cream is a huge win. This richly dense cheesecake with a chocolate biscuit base is, without a doubt, the highlight of 2016! Smooth and creamy with a slight bitterness to it, balanced the dish perfectly. What could be better?! Oh yes. Square Pig Donuts! Lightly dusted in a cinnamon sugar, these warm fluffy bundles of ecstasy are served up with a trio of warm sauces. Salted caramel, cappuccino and strawberries & Marc de Champagne. These are created to share but you'd be a fool to let anyone touch your doughy balls of delight!


The Square Pig has undergone a big change from the old style of bar it used to be. With a young, cool crowd of people going in for drinks and food, the vibe feels fresh and energetic. There's an air of friendliness and warmth that comes not just from its guests, but also its staff. Because of that, we would definitely recommend having The Square Pig as one of your go to places in London.
