I can not fault the place... service was very good, food was beautifully presented and tasted lovely and not too expensive (mains were around £16-18). My girlfriend and I went for lunch and the restaurant had a relaxed feel and was not too stuffy or pretentious. Yes they do add 12.5% for service but since we had no issues with... More

My partner and I visited The Pig for lunch on Friday. We’d heard really good things about this place from friends and family who had been before so our expectations were fairly high. We arrived and were shown straight to our table and given menus (no “pre-lunch” drinks order was taken – giving a rushed/cheap feel). Shortly after, the waiter... More

Very relaxing hotel, location is perfect set in the middle of the forest. Staff is very welcoming as well. Restaurant food is great but service is a bit slow. Massages are also not to be missed as the set-up is quite different from typical spa. Highly recommended overall.

Wonderful approach to this lovely hotel, very pretty setting. We had stayed at the pig in the wall so I knew I would love the style of the hotel. I was a it concerned because of recent reviews but I had no need to be. Small but perfectly formed room. Dinner was very good we just had piggy bits and... More

Had been looking forward to visiting this restaurant thanks to all of the positive things I've heard about it from friends and it seems popular with acquaintances on facebook. Unfortunately I have to agree with many of the comments on trip advisor about the staff being pretentious (was this insincerity or young waiting staff lacking in experience?). The setting was...

Walled gardens and Flatbread lunches. Whispering Angels. Stable blocks and Hen Houses, forest views and garden swings, hedges of Borage and Rosemary, the ubiquitous Sage to accompany the pigs…Massages in summer huts, couple-sized showers, the muted tones of shabby chic, rooms bestowed with fully-stocked-munchie-larders and Nespresso capsules to wake to. An English midsummer-evening sun casting the softest light, creating a... More

Simply fantastic. The surroundings, the food, the staff. Gorgeous and faultless, we're already planning when we can next return and we only just left within the last hour! Superb value for the food - next time we'd love to stay too because it's the kind of place you don't want to leave.

excellent friendly waiter who was personable and polite. Lovely chocolate cake and biscuits in a great environment. Nice comfortable and clean lounges and sofas, log fires and seats outside. Amazing walled secret garden with vegetables and herbs to see in a beautiful setting.
