Welcome to THE PIG-in the wall

Tucked away in the medieval walls of Southampton, this is the smallest of the litter and our city-centre bolt-hole!

12 unique bedrooms, a deli-bar, fire-side cosiness and a whole city to explore right outside!

Whether you are staying for business or pleasure, THE PIG-in the wall's convenient location close-by to the cruise terminal and the city centre makes it the perfect place to stay.

We do things a little differently to the rest of THE PIGs

We are all about relaxed deli-dining rather than the full PIG restaurant experience.

Expect rustic wooden tables and chairs, low sofa seating, a roaring log burner and cosy corners in our open plan lounge.

Open every day from 9am. Lunch is served from midday. Supper is served until 8pm.

Our Deli-bar menu changes daily and our ingredients are sourced from the kitchen garden at THE PIG, Brockenhurst, and our local suppliers.

A little oasis of calm in the big city! You will always find Radio 2 playing at breakfast, a couple of settle in sofas, a well-made cocktail…or two, and a huge bed to rest your head.

Southampton Train Station is very close; hop on the free CityLink shuttle bus that heads towards the ferry terminals. It operates every 15 minutes between the station and Town Quay and takes about 10 minutes. Beware if you head there on foot: you could get lost in a hinterland of shopping centre car parking!

Being so conveniently situated in the city-centre means there are plenty of taxis and Ubers on hand to drop you at ours! If you're coming from the train station it's just a 5 minute taxi-ride, but if you're coming a little further from Southampton Airport it's around 15 minutes, depending on traffic!
