“Local produce at it's best”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

We went for Saturday lunch and booking is essential.

The setting is very picturesque being within the New Forest. They have an amazing vegetable patch you can wander around and even head off with their forager into the woods to see how they select their local produce.

The vast majority of the produce is either grown by them or sourced locally, which is great for food miles and supporting local business.

The decor is gorgeous and has been done with a huge amount of detail. The dining room is like sitting in a very smart greenhouse, with herbs all around you and not just for show!

The menu is extensive and delicious. We tried the cracking and baby bbq ribs to start. Then we had clams with homemade pasta and a pot of prawns. All this was delicious and rounded off with some rice pudding!!

The service is first rate, with casual yet uniformed staff.

Only negative was some of the staff did not know the menu well enough, with such wonderful food they should taste it themselves!!

They have about 25 rooms and I can only imagine the decor and comfort would be of the same level.

“Perfect birthday treat!”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

I love this restaurant, the place is thought about and contrived but in a really good way. The 25mile menu is inspiring, piggie bits delicious, portions generous and price tag reasonable. Enjoyed relaxing in the bar after our menu, chilled environment where every attention was paid to make sure we had a lovely time.
Staff were friendly and wine moreish!!!
We will return, you should go too!!

“Luxury lunch”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

We have enjoyed a couple of great lunches at The Pig.
And shall be going back again soon.

It has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, the staff are excellent and very attentive. The grounds are also lovely, with an excellent kitchen garden you are able to walk through. We feel the food is great value, but certain drinks are pricey.

“WONDERFUL NEW FORST ,LOCATION, STUNNING FOOD”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We lunched at this beautiful restaurant in a delightful woodland setting. The dining room is relaxing and utterly charming in a kitchen garden style and the food, most of which is locally sourced, is fabulous. Portions are generous and prices very fair. We paid £65 for two people with wine, which we felt was terrific value. We shall be making a return visit very soon as this was a memorable meal.
