THE NAME Pig N Whistle

The "Pig and Whistle" is an archetypal pub name and is as likely to come from "Old England costume dramas" as are men in tights and buxom serving wenches. Like many old pub names, for example, "The Dog and Duck," "The Goat and Compasses," the derivation of "The Pig and Whistle" is uncertain. There are several suggested origins. Most of them propose that the "pig" part of the title derives from the name of a drinking vessel or container. The names given are various, 'peg' (a set of pins fixed at intervals in a drinking vessel), 'piggin' (a wooden drinking vessel or ladle), although most seem to have missed the rather more obvious 'pig' (an earthenware pot or pitcher). The 'whistle' element is harder to pin down. 'Wassail' has been suggested; This is the salutation used toasting a person's health - the reply being "drink-hail." Wassail is also the name of the spiced ale that was drunk on Twelfth-night and Shakespeare referred to this in Macbeth, 1605

Pig N Whistle opened its first Singapore outlet in Changi Road because we believe the neighborhood was missing a place to hang out with friends, a place to relax, and a place to call "a home from home." We welcome everyone, as our home is your home.
Bring family, friends, loved ones, and you don't have to drive; it's your neighborhood, it's your Bistro & Bar, so come and have fun and relaxation.
