Lovely peaceful inn. Good sized portions of well cooked food. The salmon and pasta was delicious. Would definitely go back. Good service and good choice of non alcoholic drinks.

The Spotted Pig is a stylish and cosy country pub. The food is local where ever possible, fresh and cooked to order. The wine & beer list has been specially selected to compliment the food, which changes frequently, depending on the season and ingredients available. We pride ourselves on a welcoming atmosphere and hope to offer you food and drink that is a little bit special, that you can't find anywhere else.
