Food

That’s where it all started. We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well.

From our plot to your plate

The Kitchen Garden team work hand in hand with our Chefs every day to make sure every plate is touched by the freshest and most authentic flavours. 

With a serious commitment to the local community and surrounding area THE PIG-on the beach celebrates Dorset! The menus are written around what is available in our walled Kitchen Garden or delivered to the door from the local suppliers – creating our 25-Mile Menu. The menus will change by the minute, depending on what the Forager supplies and what the Kitchen Garden team deems to be in perfect condition.

Our food style is driven by homegrown clarity of flavour, true to the seasons and influenced by the Dorset landscape and our proximity to the coast.

Menus

Our commitment to a 25-Mile Menu not only supports our local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients. 

Take a look at our menus to get a feel for what we may be dishing up. Please note these are subject to change.

Supplier Shout Out

Over the years we have been lucky to support some of the very best local suppliers to each of THE PIG hotels. What ever our Kitchen Garden teams are unable to grow themselves we source from within a 25 mile radius - creating our 25-Mile Menu. We love who we work with and carefully select them so we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients, and be sure that what we are dishing up is the very best around. Take a look below if you want to support our network and shop local!

Please speak to our Restaurant Manager if you have any questions about the menu, allergies or dietary requirements.

Our 25-Mile Menu

We have 36 suppliers listed on the back of our menu, 28 of them are local suppliers that sit within our 25 mile menu radius, but this is not the exhaustive list! THE PIG-on the beach is always on the hunt to find and support new and emerging producers that can add depth of flavour and authenticity to the menu.

  • Jim Adami Game

    9 miles away
    A local favourite, Jim Adami Game supplies us with locally sourced venison, deep in colour and rich in flavour. 

  • Berry Hill Farm

    9 miles away
    What can't be grown in our kitchen gardens, is locally sourced from no more than 25 miles. Although we grow much of our own produce,  Berry Hill Farm provides us with a colourful harvest of greens and fruit throughout the year. 

  • Rob Fields Honey

    3 miles away
    Rob Fields Honey is a local beekeeper who believes it important to reduce the stress on bees as much as possible, using the best husbandry techniques available to supply golden honey. Situated in the Isle of Purbeck, the landscape is perfect for beekeeping due to the long summer season of the southern coast, enabling bumblebees to forage for pollen and nectar from early summer to late autumn. 

  • B. Curtis Butchers

    8 miles away
    In 1951, Basil Curtis insisted on selling only the finest cuts of meat in Dorset, and almost 70 years and three generations later,  the Curtis family still hold true to Basil's ethos of sourcing rich in quality meat. 

  • The Purbeck Cider Company

    4 miles away
    Tucked away in the heart of the chalk downs of Dorset, The Purbeck Cider Company create the finest of ciders using 100% pressed cider apples. It’s thought that Dorset was once home to over 10,000 acres of orchard and The Purbeck Cider Company pride themselves on making cider from the rich fruits still harvested there.

Getting here

Gorgeous views & stunning beaches. A 23 bedroom mellow country house perfectly situated along Studland Bay.

THE PIG-on the beach

Manor Road, Studland, Dorset, BH19 3AU
Open in Google Maps

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

Bill's Taxis are a local taxi service and always on hand to get you where you need to be! Give them a call on 07549776736 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.
