The Pig and Whistle is a traditional rural village pub, dating back to the mid-19th century. A short drive from the centre of Chelmsford, in the delightfully named village of Chignal Smealey, this pub is popular for its generous Sunday carvery and good range of beers.
Cosy and relaxed, the Pig and Whistle has warming woodburners, old beams and soft lighting and has extensive countryside views and an attractive garden. It offers sensibly priced, hearty home-cooked food
This pub hosts regular quiz nights and acts as a meeting place for the village cricket team. It is also about to become a Community Hub for internet access, due to the poor signal in the area.
