Second visit - just as good

This was a out second visit to the Pig for dinner, and the service was great. The evening begins with drinks in the bar, knowledgable and friendly staff are on hand to help you through the choices. Then on to the main event - the menu here is a delight, many interesting options. The staff are... read more

We visited here on our wedding anniversary. We had a welcome glass of fizz that was a nice touch. I loved the piggy bits to start. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere in a conservatory - the staff were excellent, food were great and prices very reasonable. Nothing was too much trouble and we will definantely be back.

Having held our wedding reception at Whitley Ridge (before it became the Pig). We have always enjoyed our visits there until the last two - standards have dramatically slipped and the arrogance of the inept staff defies belief even the Manager who promised a call back by Friday has not bothered to do so (however, they never do according to...

Went for dinner here with the wife. Staff practically horizontal. I love a relaxed atmosphere, but I'm supposed to relax, not them! Wife starter was full of gristle so she didn't finish it. Wife's main full of gristle so she didn't eat it. Waiter asks for feedback. We told him. Nothing was done. We told manager next day. Very apologetic.... More

Our daughter-in-law's parents kindly treated us to lunch at The Pig. Our son had raved about his own experience of eating there and we now understand why! We arrived deliberately early so we could stroll through the beautifully tended kitchen gardens and visit the 'animals' before lunch. This made choosing from the extensive menu both more meaningful and challenging as... More

The setting is just wonderful as is the interior of the building, shabby chic, relaxed and homely. A delightful place for a special evening. The food was delicious, four different meals and all very good but sadly let down by the service. Several different waiters appeared at our table and it seemed that there was no continuity. There was confusion... More

The Pig is situated down a tucked away drive in the New Forest on the outskirts of Brockenhurst, but this approach is nothing compared to the sight of the converted country house which is now the Pig Hotel and Restaurant. We had visited this restaurant last year and as we were in the area recently we decided to pop in... More

Some friends treated us to lunch. And we were passing the pig. We didn't have a booking, and when we arrived in the restaurant we were regretfully informed that the waiting list was 8 weeks long. But we were welcome to try the courtyard just opposite the restaurant. The courtyard had an outside fire (?!?) which must be pointless from... More

This is simply how a hotel should be... Friendly staff, young and enthusiastic. Always happy to help and make you feel welcome. The facilities are superb, everything is functional, modern and fit for purpose. The breakfast is out of this world and the evening meals are superb, great selection of wine and the 25 miles menu is just so fresh... More
