The best things in life come in pairs, as evidenced by bangers and mash, pie and custard and mountains and goats. Dish up a double act with today's Groupon: £29 for a traditional two course British meal for two with a glass of wine each at The English Pig.
The brainchild of Johnnie Mountain who has 20 years' experience, including work at The Fat Duck, and an appearance on BBC 2's Great British Menu, The English Pig comprehensively redefines the conventional concept of the traditional British eatery. Applying a creative twenty-first century twist to old favourites, diners are not only presented with a novel and highly intriguing culinary experience but, with an ever-changing daily menu, things are never stagnant. Located within a casual stroll of Barbican Tube Station, The English Pig is far from a one-trick-pony, with Johnnie actively involved in promoting and encouraging sustainable pig farming practices.
Positively spoiled for choice by gastronomic imagination, pairs of diners can feast on starters that have included black pudding and pork shoulder paté with berries (£8.50) and Thai spiced pork cheek broth with herbs and pak choi (£7.75). As a restaurant defined by its relationship with piggies, guests may jump in head first and indulge in a slow roast belly with mustard mash and red cabbage (£18.95). Alternatively, fish options such as seabass with sautéd potatoes, braised gem and pulses (£17.90) and a veggie-friendly beetroot risotto and yellow beet ketchup (£14.50) have also gone down a treat in the past. Whatever the menu of the day, all options come with a glass of wine each.
A full sample menu can be found here.
Although the menu is big on pig, non-meat eaters are still catered for according to vegetarian reviewers. Offering a unique venue in The City, customers have felt relaxed and comfortable at the venue.
Curiosities aside, he [sic] can certainly cook: there’s an excellent, subtle goat’s cheese pannacotta with confit beetroot; cinnamon rice pudding with fabulous dulce de leche ice cream.

Great food - good atmosphere. Limited menu choice - but everything on it of very high quality. A menu inspired by pigs but the veggie option was delicious too!
