“A Great Evening”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We had a memorable meal at the Pig: our only regret was that it was dark and we could not admire the surroundings: will have to come back in the summer! The food was delicious and the service from a very young staff was attentive and excellent. The wine list was extensive but expensive: as one of us was driving this was not a problem. The only negative was that the tables for two were a bit close together.

“Perfection: One of the best dining experiences in the UK”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The entire experience at The Pig was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have ever had. I cannot rate this establishment more highly. Located in the New Forest down on the south coast of England, The Pig is situated in a stunning old country house and has one of the most beautiful settings...surrounded by fields, forests and countryside. This place is stylish with a charming edge to it. The boutique hotel has about 20 rooms, and one of the most warm and welcoming bars and lounges with fire places, but the highlight is undoubtably the restaurant. The food and service was incredible. We had arrived early as the folks at The Pig invite and encourage guests to walk around the farm, viewing all the various vegetable and herb patches, pig pens, green house, smoke house and all the other culinary delights that are produced and prepared locally on the property. We walked through all the gardens, fields and grounds, and got to see everything that was being picked and prepared for the evenings menu.
Apparently the menu changes daily, if not by the hour as all the ingredients are sourced from the farm on site, or alternatively sourced from within a 25 mile radius, so each and every ingredient is as fresh as it could be. The quality of the food was quite simply superb with extremely reasonable prices and very generous portions. Incredible variety of dishes all prepared flawlessly....the service was also perfection, knowledgable waiters and sommelier, warm and not over bearing. This has to be one of the most amazing dinners I have had in years and when I am back in the UK, I shall make a point of getting the train from London to Brockenhurst to have another meal at this wonderful place in the New Forest. In summer, it must convert into one of the most breathtaking outdoor dining venues....

“Wonderful unique restaurant”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

It was our 25th wedding anniversary last week and my husband has the task of finding somewhere unique in the New Forest where we were staying. I love pigs! The name of the restaurant was a good start. When we arrived we were greeted by a log fire in the courtyard it was a crisp evening and this was so welcoming. There was piped music throughout even outside. We visted the kitchen garden which was extensive and saw the Spa potting shed across the lake. The pigs had gone to bed. The food was served in a large orangery and the wine list was one of the largest I had ever seen! Food was simply amazing, the scallops were caught that morning and were served with some roots which were delicious. The pork had the most amazing crackling and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone as the food was diverse, staff very attentive and sitting in the drawing room after dinner with the log fire was beautiful.

“Seriously good”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Pig not only looks stylish, shabby chic, in a beautiful country house but the staff are charming and knowledgeable. Best of all the food was really delicious, good to look at and reasonably priced.
My only complaint was that there was just too much of it and because it was so tasty we all continued to eat long after we should have stopped and then waddled out feeling uncomfortably full. Pigs.
