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-in the wall 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...

  • Isle of White Cheese Company

    22 miles away
    A regional favourite, The I.O.W Cheese Company believe that great cheese starts with great milk. By prioritising the happiness of the herd, their grass-fed girls are provided with the best ground to munch on all year round. You'll find the award-winning Isle of Wight Blue on our Cheese Board.

  • T Bartlett & Son

    21 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

    25 miles away
    Fluffetts Farm supplies the finest eggs, without compromising on the welfare of their chickens. They believe free-range eggs should only come from carefully-managed flocks.

  • Romsey Pork Farm


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

  • Isle of Wight Blue

    20 miles away
    This cheese is a multiple medal winner at the World, British and International Cheese Awards. Most notably, it won Best English Cheese at the World Cheese Awards.

  • Hambledon Vineyard

    19 miles away
    It’s England’s oldest commercial vineyard, comprised of over 50 acres of land - and the only gravity-fed, state-of-the-art winer in the UK. We love our pouring wine, the Classic Cuvée.

By road

Southampton is easily accessible via the M27 and M3. You'll find us a stones throw away from Red Funnel Ferry Terminal. Please note on Google Maps the postcode takes you to Westage Street which is behind us - you will find THE PIG-in the wall on Western Esplanade

Nearest station

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!

Taxi service

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!

Nearest airport

THE PIG-in the wall is 5 miles away from Southampton Airport and can be reached easily by car, bus or taxi! The city centre can be busy, so leave yourself with plenty of time to get there if you've got a plane to catch. Southampton Airport Parkway is situated right next to Southampton Airport and just 99 steps from train to plane!
