Meet Tommy. Landlord. Geezer. Piggin' Legend.

Meet Tommy. Landlord. Geezer. Piggin' Legend.

We caught up with one of our legendary pub heroes, Tommy. Tommy runs The Marquis in Covent Garden, a proper boozer that boasts all the personality you’d expect from a proper geezer; welcoming, fun and relaxed. Like us, Tommy loves the classics; he has Only Fools & Horses on repeat, an EPIC range of booze and food, and an actual vinyl record collection (jog on Spotify…) that’ll have you in sing-song mode sooner than you can shout PARKLIFE.

Why PIG does warehousing

Why PIG does warehousing

A lot of our peers and fellow foodies wouldn't dream of owning a warehouse. The stress, workload and cost is sometimes too big a burden to worry about. But that doesn't bother us.

The evolution of PIG

The evolution of PIG

It's fair to say, we didn't have all the answers when we started the brand, back in 2015. Launched as Giggling Pig with a more artisan look, we moved to a pink snout, renamed as Snaffling Pig, then pushed the vibrancy before dialing it back to a cleaner look.
