This week, The Pig is mostly…

…thoroughly enjoying what seems to be the onset of actual Spring (sunshine! Remember that?) by making the very most of homemade treats on offer at the Riverside Cafe, where menus make the very most of locally sourced, seasonal produce. Grab an alfresco table, and you’re about as close to the weir as it’s possible to get without actually diving in. Lovely!

…eagerly anticipating learning all about PDOs (in this instance, in relation to cheese) at Paxton and Whitfield’s next tasting session at the Wild Cafe on Thursday 25 April. No idea what a PDO is? This is your chance to find out!

…dismayed to hear on the grapevine that restaurant booking no-shows seem to be trending in Bath at the moment. You wouldn’t fail to turn up at a friend’s house for dinner without calling to let them know you couldn’t make it. So why do people think it’s okay to be that rude to restaurant owners?

…lovin’ the buzzin’ schedule of events at the Bear on Bear Flat this April: Artisan Cheese and Wine tasting with lively wine connoisseur Tristan Darby on Thursday 18 April, pie, mash and a pint for £10 on St George’s Day (Tuesday 23 April) and free coffee (and top-ups!) with every breakfast or cake purchased during National Coffee Week (Mon 22-Sun 28 April). Meanwhile, bear cubs can tuck into a children’s main meal, pudding and juice for just £5 every Friday between 5-7pm. Bear aware? You got it!

…feasting on pies from Bath-based piemen Lovett Pies at every opportunity. Despite that fact that the comfort food season is apparently over for a while, their mushroom, Swiss chard, butter bean and truffle oil incarnation takes over where the Bath Pie (beef, Bellringer ale and Bath Blue cheese) left off – no mash required.
