Down in our Kitchen Garden

Eating at THE PIG is truly a one-of-a-kind experience

The kitchen is overseen by Chef James Golding whose two key lieutenants aren't their sous chefs but forager and kitchen gardener.

Uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons and influenced by the forest and coast, with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours.

An activity the whole family can enjoy whilst providing fresh air and good exercise. Our forager will take you on a light-hearted and educational experience through the forest or along the coast finding, identifying and collecting wild edible food.

In the Spring the walks can include a hedgerow harvest such as wild salads and vegetables and through the Autumn we forage for fruits, nuts and berries. On a trip to the coast you can gather seaweed and shellfish.
