Pig & Whistle, Chelmsford

Pig & Whistle





The Pig & 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, making this beautiful public house the ideal retreat for individuals, couples and families.

Cosy and relaxed, the Pig & Whistle is both cosy and relaxing, with old beams and fine paintings adorning the interior walls and ceilings, soft lighting and candlelight glow creates a warm and relaxing atmosphere for all who frequent this delightful place.

Good home cooked food available 6 days a week and its famous for its generous Sunday carvery and Irish lamb stew in a bread bowl.

A proper Irish welcome from the landlord Brendan and his friendly team of staff makes this an ideal place to visit for a snack, a meal or just a drink and fine conversation.

What our customers say on Trip Advisor

A warm welcome in a lovely country pub.
"Was our first visit to the Pig & Whistle first impressions were well presented with a nice outlook over farmland, with a nice beer garden. On walking in we were greated by warm cosy pub, excellent staff, not a bad choice on beers. We choose a table in the corner with comfortable chairs next to the fireplace, which i can imagine in the winter roaring away.We choose our food from the menu, which was delivered to our table promptly and was extremely tasty, and reasonably priced. Well done to Brendan and all the staff, will certainly be back,and will recommend to others."    Steve O

"Just spent another relaxing evening after a frantic dau in this beutiful pub. Thank you Brendon for your amazing hospitality. As soon as you approach it you will not be dissapointed!!!. The decor is magical, the atmosphere cosy and warm, the comfy arm chairs in the snug will make you want to spend the night. Try the sharing platters over a glass of crisp white chablis and you will be hooked, return on sunday for a mouthwatering carvery and puddings to  die for."    Kate C
