I have seen 2 different pages on trip advisor for the black pig pub, one under restaurants and one under b&b's. I would just like to say that I have recently been to the black pig on several occasions, and it has never failed to impress me. The food is great and the choice is varied. The pub is now... More

The Black Pig has new owners so I thought I would re-review. I liked the Black Pig before (which is why we went back) but believe me it is even better now. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well appointed, the owners (2 couples) are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble, the food is superb, good menu,... More

After a bracing walk we ended up here for a lovely lunch. We both had the ploughmans lunch which was delicious and plentiful so much so that we took some cheese home! Beer was good as was the fire. In addition they had a special price two course lunch which was a bargain

We had been booked in for months for a one night stay. No deposit was asked for. - should have smelled the rat then. We emailed 2 days before our visit which was not answered the smell increased. On the morning of our visit we received a short email to say that we could not stay - apparently some guests... More

Went with friends recently for overnight stay. Assumed as there was no soap in the bathroom,to be an oversight. Not so. Apparently, they don't provide soap! Breakfast in the morning was a joke. The landlord appeared to be the only staff there. We waited 40 minutes for anything to appear on our table.....and I mean anything! There was no evidence... More

Myself and my partner stumbled across the Black pig. At a glance the building is phenomenal, which doesn't change when you enter the building. Lavished with black beams and a fire place, the cosy pub had a brilliant atmosphere. Myself and my partner picked up a menu, and was tempted by all of the food (Unfortunately we had to pick... More
