We love local in everything we do at THE PIG, and over the years we have been lucky to support some of the best local suppliers around with our 25-mile menu. At our original PIG in Brockenhurst and THE PIG-in the Wall in Southampton, we have the New Forest and Hampshire right on our doorstep which means we get a pick of some of the South Coast’s best produce.

Some are delivering daily to your doors, others are keeping their shelves stocked with all the essentials and some are shipping their goodies nationwide so you can all get your hands on them. Thank you to all of our suppliers and friends for supporting us all through these times. 

Whilst you can’t get to THE PIG in Brockenhurst some of our friends are supporting the community with local pick up points and deliveries of their delicious ingredients, which means you can enjoy some piggy ingredients at home whilst supporting local!
