It all started with a Bang, or a Banger Bar to be more precise...
On 4th July 2015 the three Kohn brothers, and their friend Will, decided to put The Jolly Hog sausages (that by now were very very tasty), in a banger bap and start selling them out of a pop-up sausage Bar...
The Banger Bar, based in Shoreditch, London.
They then found out that people wanted to enjoy more proper pork, so Will and The Jolly Hog got together again and on 17th October 2016, Pigsty was born... in a shipping container on Bristol’s Wapping Wharf.
The site of the second restaurant and was originally James Brown & Sons, an old butchery that existed from 1890-1950 and traded solely in Pork! The original tiles, are still on the wall.
