“One of my favourite places in the New Forest”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We ate there a couple of times, and the place never failed to surprise us! Yummy food made with mostly local ingredients, lovely atmosphere, pleasant grounds. I highly recommend this place both for business lunch and family outing.

Spent a night in "the pig sty" in February, although we have eaten here numerous times before. The room was clean, well finished and has plenty of room for two adults and two children. The living room is well laid out and has a log burner, which was lovely as it was cold and wet outside. The master bedroom has a large, comfortable bed, with views over the open countryside. The second bedroom has bunk beds, which the kids loved. The food was excellent as usual, and the staff even let us have the private dining room to ourselves as we had friends staying with us.

Overall, a fantastic place to stay and eat - staff always friendly and a relaxed, not too formal atmosphere - not cheap, but certainly well worth the money.

Will certainly be back soon.

Had lunch at the Pig today with parents and our two boys aged 1 and 2. Staff were attentive and very sweet with children. Lovely rustic decor and enjoyed the table set up with large chicory plant as centre piece. Outdoors area is beautiful and was easy to nip out with youngsters when they got a bit tetchy and entertain them with the large swing, model of pig and trains nearby. Our 2 year old loved his children's cocktail, what a nice touch when you usually just get a choice of fruit shoots when eating out. I am a vegetarian and was very pleased to get a separate menu; I had expected a very meat-heavy menu but the choice was vast and it all looked innovative and mouthwatering. I had a salad for starters with quails egg and rainbow beetroot. For main I had nettle fettuccine. Easily the best meal I have had out in the past few years.
We really enjoyed a walk around the kitchen garden afterwards.
Thank you so much, we will definitely be returning next year.

Stayed at the Pig with friends back in December, was lucky enough to have room 15 one in the courtyard which is delightful, may be noisy in the summer with other guests, but in the winter was delightful, food was delicious as always. Also stayed at the Pig In The Wall on the same weekend. Loved it and would definitely recommend for a special weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Courtyard, though our friends had a family room and that was also gorgeous

I recently spent two nights at The Pig with my boyfriend. We stayed in The Dog House, a beautiful suite room complete with wood burning stove. We ate dinner in the restaurant both nights of our stay, the menu changes with each day so there are always some new dishes to choose from. The food was perfectly executed and absolutely delicious. Despite reading some criticism of the food from previous guests I can find no fault, the food is good, simple, British cooking, perfectly fresh and seasonal. The restaurant and bar staff were incredibly attentive and helpful.

I have just two small criticisms. As helpful as the hotel staff were, when asked for pub/walk/local transport recommendations their local knowledge was rather poor. Secondly, and this is something that many people have commented on, we thought it inappropriate to charge an additional £16 per guest for a cooked breakfast. The Pig is not cheap, the rooms in particular are priced very highly, it would not hurt to have breakfast included in this steep price. There are no other breakfast options in the vicinity, you have to, and want to eat breakfast there.. so please Pig, throw breakfast in!

Otherwise.. thank you for a most lovely stay.

We went to The Pig as a family for a birthday meal. It was my first time in going but not for my family. All I can say was that it is beautifully decorated, and a lovely atmosphere. We didn't feel rushed at all, enjoyed the views from the dining room. We decided to share a few little light bites before our main (5 between 6 people) and they were all lovely. For main we all had something different which were all beautifully presented. I, inparticular had the venison, and it was stunning!! Cooked beautifully. Only one negative, and I hate to say negative as it's such a strong word.. Is that it was incredibly difficult to get hold of any staff for more drinks etc whilst at the table and when we did it took quite a fair while. However, this has definitely not put me off returning and I shall do very soon.

Fantastic stay. Room very nice; staff very very helpful and pleasant; lovely log fires add to the overall ambience, with a lovely atmosphere to both the bar and restaurant. Did we mention the restaurant ... simply superb. We won't say more ... try it for yourself ... Your challenge, should you wish to accept it, is to find any fault!!! We couldn't!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Pig is a bang up to date take on a new style of home grown, 26 bedroom country house hotel and what that needs to be today - original, relaxed and sitting comfortably within its environment. It's really a restaurant with rooms. This is a place that is all about the walled garden and everything is driven by the gardener/forager and chef - they grow and find the food - the chef then makes the menu. The style is home grown in every way - breaking the mold of designed hotels, daring to be comfortable in its own skin, working with what it has and recognising what is good about that. It won't be perfect, it will be warm, relaxed, comfy, interesting, and homely with muted colours, a bit shabby chic and evolved rather than interior designed. ... more   less
