It all starts in our Kitchen Garden

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

The kitchen is overseen by Chef James Golding and Head Chef Andy Wright. Uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons and influenced by the coast, with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours. 

What can't be grown in our Kitchen Garden, or in the extensive vegetable and fruit beds, is sourced locally - our further commitment to the 25 mile menu.
