Welcome to THE PIG-near Bath

Our mellow country house, tucked into the folds of the Mendip Hills.

Our biggest kitchen garden complete with a Smoke House, a wild flower orchard, fruit cages, a greenhouse and buzzy beehives. 25-miles of menu, a conservatory restaurant, a fallow deer herd, characterful drawing rooms, indulgent bedrooms and a couple of Kunekunes!

A love of good honest food 

Our philosophy is simple, we only use what we can grow or rear ourselves or what we can source from within 25-miles. That does not limit us though! With a Kitchen Garden as big as the one we have at THE PIG-near Bath, we can be spoilt for choice in the summer, and our 10-meter long polytunnels give us a helping hand in the winter.  

THE PIG-at Bath team would not be complete without a few four-legged or feathered friends! Home – rearing our own chickens and pigs for eggs and pork means we can be sure of their quality and provenance, ensuring they lead happy lives.
