More than a Boutique Hotel, The PIG is really a restaurant with rooms, with an obsessive commitment to garden food.

Set deep in the heart of The New Forest National park with 14 acres of estate. We pride ourselves on home-grown produce- picked daily by the chefs and garden team from our walled kitchen garden, and what we can’t grow ourselves, we source from local suppliers within 25 miles. Our menu is all about The Best of British – creating classics with a twist.

The PIG boasts fruit cages, a smoke house (smoking meats and fish) , crayfish pond, salad and tomato tunnels, livestock (pigs, chickens, quail), & an experimental greenhouse so our menu can change by the minute depending upon what the forager turns up with or what the kitchen gardener deems to be in perfect condition.

Clarity of flavour, true to the micro seasons and influenced by the forest are the drivers of The Pig food style.

  • Awarded with two Rosettes and a strawberry for our locally sourced menu by AA and are Michellin guide recommended
  • Winner of Sustainable Resaurant of The Year 2012
  • Voted Independent Hotel of the Year by the Caterer & Hotelkeeper’s prestigious Catey Awards
