Fodor's Review

The latest outpost of the growing Pig empire is an excellent funky but chic “restaurant with rooms” in a converted country house set in a deer park in the bucolic Mendip Hills. As in the New Forest original, the "25 Mile Menu" is all about the local and seasonal (and the porcine); kale, rocket, and other leaves and veggies are sourced from the Pig’s kitchen garden; apples, pears, and apricots come from its orchard; and pork, chicken, quail, and venison are provided by animals raised on the property. Salmon, pancetta, and bacon are smoked on-site. The results are exceptionally fresh and flavorsome dishes like loin of home-reared venison or “Kentucky-fried” wild rabbit. Dining alfresco in summer, when the wood-fired oven gets going, is a delight. The 29 comfortable and reasonably priced rooms (from £149) are decorated with an elegant simplicity and have glorious views. It's located about 8 miles from Bath, off the A368.
