Discover our tipples from garden to glass...

Whether you’re joining us first thing for a Garden Bloody Mary pick-me-up or a late nightcap, we will smash, muddle, blend, shake and throw our way to making you your perfect drink. All of our cocktails are designed with the Kitchen Garden in mind. Our Head Kitchen Gardener at THE PIG-on the beach provides all of the essential ingredients to infuse our Chase Distillery Spirits with. Like our restaurant, our aim is to provide high-quality products in the most sustainable, local and resourceful way possible.

No need to book!

Just drop by for a tipple or two in our bar lounge or outside on the terrace. Why not order some Piggy Bits whilst you're at it?

Please be aware that due to physical distancing we will be running at a limited capacity and seating will be on a first come first served basis.

Head to the bar in any of our PIGs, and you’ll notice our eclectic collections of botanical-infused vodkas with all sorts of garden pickings including Rosemary, Thyme, Basil, Horseradish, Cucumber, Strawberry and Pelagonium!

Garden to glass cocktails

We like to make the most out of our Kitchen Garden ingredients at THE PIG-on the beach by bringing the garden to your glass... you won't find a bar around quite like ours.

Our Bar Team work with our Kitchen Gardeners to bring in ingredients to experiment with straight from our plot, so you can sip on something truly unique like Basil, infused vodka, Garden chillies infused rum or Kaffir lime infused gin.

By road

If you’re staying longer than a night or two, a car’s handy for exploring. Less than three hours from London, the Studland Bay peninsula is best reached via the car ferry across the mouth of Poole harbour. You can also reach Studland without using the ferry by following the B3351 down towards Swanage. In the summer roads can become congested with holidaymakers so please allow delays in your journey (but it's worth the effort). There's a free on-site car park for hotel guests.

Nearest station

A train from central London takes around two hours. The closest station is Wareham, on South West Trains' London Waterloo–Weymouth line, about 20 minutes' drive from the hotel; it has connections to Poole, Southampton, Sussex, Wales and beyond.

Taxi service

Excel Taxis are a local taxi service and always on hand to get you where you need to be! Give them a call on 01929 448066 if you're needing a lift to our house.

Nearest airport

If you're needing to be within close proximity to an airport, Bournemouth Airport is 27 miles away and it takes around an hour to get there by car.
