Staying at The Pig is a special experience that is not duplicated elsewhere. They have managed to combine an old country hotel feel with luxury accommodation. The pub atmosphere is fabulous, music good, food great and service warm and friendly.

I loved this hotel - I loved the history attached to it, the thoughtful booklet of the area and the surrounds,and the restaurant has such awesome dishes! I recommend the pear, bacon and blue cheese salad - utterly delicious! Would stay again in a heartbeat!
