Ginger Pig Café

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
