After a stay in the Pig in the Forest last year, we were very excited to try the Pig in the Wall, and we weren't disappointed. Although it's much smaller than its sister hotel (12 rooms I think?) the rustic 'Pig' vibe is definitely there throughout - from the friendly staff to the gorgeous rooms. We stayed in a 'comfy' room, which was lovely and spacious given the size of the building. The bed was huge and comfortable, and the shower was brilliant. The bathroom is much smaller than the equivalent at the Pig in the Forest, but is perfectly formed.
The B&B is walking distance from the station, the town centre and the marina, and the shuttle service to the Brockenhurst hotel for dinner is excellent - you really shouldn't miss dinner there if you have the chance.
I can only pick a couple of tiny faults with this place. One is breakfast - it's a buffet-style layout with granola, toast, eggs etc, but there didn't seem to be any cook to order food on offer. What was there was delicious though. The only other area for improvement I can think of is the staff's knowledge of offers - we were staying on a b&b + dinner at the Brockenhurst Pig offer, and were given a bill that charged us for everything separately. The staff on the desk were great and sorted everything out very rapidly, but I got the feeling they were a little confused about what was and wasn't included.
Would definitely return, and will be recommending this beautiful place to anyone staying in Southampton.
