Perfectly Pleasant

After a lovely walk in the surrounding forest, we had lunch at this popular New Forest spot. Beautiful surroundings, local beer, local produce and a wonderful garden to amble through after lunch. My asparagus starter was well portioned and delicious. I chose to go for the trout salad as a main... read more

I've been here a few times now and every single time it has been perfect. The staff are lovely and the food is beautiful.

We went to the Brockenhurst Pig to celebrate my brother & sister -in- law's Golden wedding anniversary. We had advised them about this special event and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The service was top class throughout and very friendly. The food was of the highest quality and following a previous visit to The Pig... More

Can't fault the food but over shadowed by poor service and excessive drink prices especially the wine - just one red under £25/bottle. After waiting 30 mins between starter and main I spoke to waitress who said she had already checked and mains were coming - so why had nothing been said to us?? 10 moe minutes passed and no... More

We booked this for a special birthday lunch. Arriving the place looks amazing. After that things start to go downhill. Staff started off overly attentive, butting in three times with 'do you have any questions on the menu?' Food and drink ordered, they then completely disappeared. The food we had was good and well presented. We did want dessert but... More

I took my parents to The Pig in Brockenhurst for an anniversary gift in January 2015. From the moment we got there the staff were friendly and attentive, without being too overboard. The food was wonderful and the waiting staff, pleasant, interesting and had time for you. They also had great knowledge of the wines and made our visit a... More

This was the worst crab sandwich and chips we have ever eaten. Very expensive and unedible . Nice waiter brought them back to kitchen but unfortunately they came back just as bad, just horrible and shocking after the good reviews we had read, was the chef on a break?

This was the second time we had been to The Pig in Brockenhurst and it was sublime...again, The relaxed atmosphere, impressive kitchen garden and wonderful food added up to a lunch to remember. The pigs jowl bacon and cavolo nero tart was delicious and the winter savoury cheese cake with Dorset yoghurt sorbet was the stuff of dreams. I will... More

An amazing place to visit (though need a car or strong legs) with beautiful views and lovely traditional country architecture. Imagine staying here would be very special. The service was really excellent and friendly, the food good but not exceptional. My pork belly overcooked for instance or perhaps too tough to start with. For the cost would expect a little...

One of my favourite places to sit, have a leisurely lunch and just take time to unwind. Such a beautiful setting; quiet and peaceful, welcoming to kids and with some fabulous and interesting local produce.
