Nestling deep in Hampshire’s New Forest National Park, The Pig is a classic, country house, with a modern twist - a kitchen restaurant with 26 comfortable, and well appointed bedrooms. What is very important here is the food. Based on the walled garden and foraging, the chef James Golding (ex Mark Hix-Ivy, Caprice, Sheeky’s and Soho House, New York) works closely with his gardener and forager to change the menu by the minute (daily just won’t do!) depending on what is deemed to be in perfect condition. They are also committed to the 25-mile menu – whereby most of the fresh ingredients are sourced in the local area. Meals are served in the charming Victorian glasshouse dining room or al fresco, and there is even a wood fired oven in the courtyard. You can have relaxing massages in The Potting Shed treatment area, stroll through the delightful grounds - which includes a wild flower meadow orchard, walled kitchen garden, chicken and pig houses and paddock (with its five very active pigs!) - or simply enjoy exploring the New Forest on your doorstep….we guarantee you simply won’t want to leave! Rooms start from £125. www.thepighotel.co.uk
