The Pig-near Bath, Pensford
Super-relaxed country house restaurant with rooms – where everything you eat comes from their own kitchen garden or 25 miles beyond – set in a glorious 30-acre deer park in Somerset's Mendip Hills.
Ooh yes please: The Pig-near Bath, the super-relaxed country house luxury hotel and restaurant with kitchen gardens, orchard, wild flowers, bee hives and spa treatments set within a 30-acre deer park in the rolling Mendip Hills.
Located near the village of Pensford, about eight miles west of Bath, The Pig-near Bath is styled around an imaginary military gent who enjoys the classic countryside pursuits of huntin’ and fishin’, with oil paintings, faux animal heads and a cabinet with trophy fish, all slightly tongue-in-cheek.
Nibble on Piggy Bits while you peruse their impressive menu where everything on it has been grown, reared or produced by themselves or by others within a 25 mile radius of the hotel. Somerset has more than 8,500 farmers and food producers (more than any other county in the UK) and The Pig works with many of them, including Longmans at North Leaze Farm (who make award winning butter and Vale of Camelot blue cheese), Glastonbury Ales and the Bertinet Bakery.
Drop in for a drink or snack in the bar lounge, book for lunch or dinner in the Conservatory restaurant, get together with friends and family in The Old Dining Room or Billiards Room.
Sleepover in 29 snug, comfy, comfy luxe, big comfy luxe rooms in the Main House and the Coach House, with monsoon showers, vintage treats and contemporary comforts. We love the sound of The Apple Store (not that one, silly) and The Hide, both two-storey rustic chic retreats with their own wood burning stoves set within the Kitchen Garden.
The fruit and veg are not the only things being nurtured in the garden; book yourself in for a deluxe treatment in The Potting Shed Treatment rooms.
Children are welcome; dogs can walk with you in the grounds but the rooms and restaurant are out of bounds.
