We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well
It’s all about the Kitchen Garden
The Kitchen Garden is the beating heart of our operation at THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay. Everything is driven by our gardeners, forager and chef – they grow and find the food – the chef then creates the menu; uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons and with a real focus on simple and fresh flavours.
With an obsessive commitment to home grown produce and a serious love of all-things local, the garden and kitchen teams will work hand in hand to create our 25-mile menu, which will be supported by passionate local farmers and small producers, who supply anything that we cannot grow or produce ourselves.
Often called the UK’s food capital, four in every five people who visit Cornwall say the food and drink is one of the reasons they choose to visit. We think that Cornwall produces among the richest variety of top quality fresh produce from land and sea available anywhere in the country, and we can't wait to work with the amazing suppliers that we have on our doorstep just outside Padstow.
Fresh-from-the-harbour seafood, award-winning English wines and spirits, hyper-local cheeses, fantastic meats and even saffron! Did you know that Saffron buns and cake are as much as part of Cornish fodder as pasties and clotted cream!
Our commitment to a 25-mile menu not only means we support and celebrate Cornwall's local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients.

Things to know before visiting
The availability shown online is live and always up-to-date. If you can’t find the date you’re after, please email email@example.com so we can add you to our waiting list.
However, it’s worth checking out our other properties as we may have rooms or tables available elsewhere.
Children are more than welcome at THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay, both in the restaurant and to stay in our inter-connecting rooms. Please note a selection of rooms can accommodate cots and small beds.
We’ll never tell you what to wear. Our restaurants are informal places, so come in whatever makes you happy and comfortable.
You can check in from 4pm at all of our properties, however, you’re more than welcome to arrive earlier to drop off your luggage and explore the gardens. Due to current physical distancing guidelines, we are limiting capacity in the main hotel, so you might not be able to make the most of the lounges until you have checked in. The team will be on hand to help you when you arrive.
Check out is by 11am. We ask that you leave your room by this time, but please enjoy the surroundings all day. We can’t guarantee an early check-in or late check-out, but stick around and let us know your plans and we will try our best on the day.
Unless we are running a special deal and it is stated within the terms, all of our rates are on a room only basis so are inclusive of VAT only.
Breakfast will be served at guests’ tables in the restaurant, as sadly our much-loved PIG grazing breakfast tables are not viable with current guidelines. All of the goodies that were on the Breakfast table will now be available, along with our hot dishes on our new Breakfast menus. Prices range from £10-£17.
We are no longer accepting payments made in cash, we will only be accepting card payments at all hotels.
We no longer accept American Express payments.

We serve Lunch in the Restaurant from 12-3.45pm daily and Dinner, for residents only from 6.00-9.45pm daily. We’re not currently taking restaurant reservations for dinner, unless you are staying with us, due to physical distancing and capacity restrictions.
