New Forest

Food

That’s where it all started. We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well.

Kitchen Garden to Plate 

This is a place where everything is driven by produce from the garden -on any given day. The menus will change by the minute, depending on what the forager supplies and what our kitchen garden team deems to be in perfect condition.

Our food style is driven by home grown clarity of flavour, true to the seasons and influenced by location, tucked away in the heart of Hampshire countryside.

Our commitment to a 25-mile menu not only supports our local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients.

Our 25-mile menu

Hampshire's distinctive character and unique combination of ancient woodland and agricultural farmland, all within casting distance of the sea, means THE PIG has access to some of the freshest local fish, amazing meats, award-winning cheeses and English wines in the country. Here are just some of our friends...

  • Breadport Bakery

    10 miles away
    A local favourite. From sweet treats to savoury bakes, this Hampshire bakery produces a variety of excellent sourdough breads, loaves and delicate pastries, baked just on the edge of the New Forest.

  • T Bartlett & Son

    8 miles away
    This third-generation family butcher provides us with high-quality meat, including the popular Hampshire chorizo, as well as pancetta, coppa, air-dried hams, lomo, bresaola and salami.

  • Fluffetts Farm

    12 miles away
    Fluffetts Farm supplies us with fresher than fresh eggs, never compromising on the welfare of their hens. They believe free-range eggs should only come from carefully-managed flocks. With yolks brighter than the sun, we love Fluffets' eggs for poaching, scrambling or dipping!

  • Romsey Pork Farm

    14 miles away
    These pigs have a seriously happy life. They live outdoors in the woods, with the option of shelter whenever they need it, leaving them to root to their hearts’ content!

  • Lyburn Cheese

    16 miles away
    Lyburn Farm makes a variety of different hand made cheeses, all of which are made from their own cows' milk. Our favourite? The award-winning Lyburn Gold; an 8-12 week ripened cheese with a creamy smooth texture dotted with tiny holes. 

  • Hambledon Vineyard

    38 miles away
    A little further than 25 miles, but Hambledon Vineyard is England’s oldest commercial vineyard, comprised of over 50 acres of land - and the only gravity-fed, state-of-the-art winery in the UK. We love our pouring wine, the Classic Cuvée.
