The Ginger Pig Café opens six days a week and serves some pretty serious food at very unfrightening prices. Locals praise the brunch and the burgers, which come with a welter of toppings: think of a medium-rare disc of minced beef resting (or being squashed under) Monterey Jack cheese, bacon, onions, gherkins, relish, jalapeño sauce, raw beetroot and a fried egg. The menu is meat-based, as you would expect, with grilled chicken, pork belly, steak and ribs all featuring, plus sandwiches and a few fish dishes. Most prices are notably reasonable: sirloin steak with mushroom sauce for £12 is a bargain, and so is a fully garnished churrasco (mixed grill) at £30 for two. Cocktails are notably inexpensive at £3.50 to £6. Brunch is dominated by eggs, the dessert menu (all £4) by nursery-type comfort food.

I love this place - i've been here heaps. The steaks are great - i've eaten here at least 5-8 times, mostly always getting the steak, which excluding one rare event has been excellent. They have super good cocktail deals, friendly staff and they've always made an effort for us.
Really bad service!
My girlfriend is can't eat gluten, so no sausages, and they refused to swap her sausage for anything else. They said it was too confusing to the kitchen.
I was not allowed to choose how I wanted my eggs - this was also too confusing for the kitchen.
Food was OK but there are better and definitely more accommodating places to eat within a 5min walkable radius.
Great cosy cafe in Hoxton with awesome steaks & burgers and a fantastic weekend brunch. Very good value for money. It can get pretty busy on the weekends so it's bet to go early.
