A love of good food

There’s a saying in Devon that ‘if you stick your finger in the ground it will grow’, and the kitchen garden is the beating heart of THE PIG-at Combe. The difference here is there are 3 walled gardens - the vegetable garden, the herb garden and the infusion garden.

Thanks to THE PIG-at Combe’s location being 8 miles from the coast the menu consists of fresh fish as well as the very best Devonshire cheese and locally reared meat from butchers around the market town of Honiton.
