Good Hotel Guide Review

You know where you are with a Pig. The style set by Robin Hutson at The Pig in the Forest, Brockenhurst (see entry), is brilliantly carried off at this Georgian manor house in the Mendips. ‘Now this is how to do shabby-chic! Staff, mostly young, are brilliant, the house is handsome and dignified but the atmosphere is buzzy.’ Bedrooms have a walk-in monsoon shower, a Nespresso machine, a larder of snacks, ‘loads of extras’. ‘Ours was exceedingly comfortable, with views of free-range chickens on one side, free-range deer on the other.’ The conservatory dining room has ‘a greenhouse feel, with beetroot, lettuce and other seedlings “brought on” in pots’. A merry cacophony is created by the acoustics: ‘Stone floors, brick walls, wooden tables, rusting metal chairs. An atmosphere place.’ Chef Kamil Oseka uses produce from the Victorian greenhouses and walled kitchen garden in such dishes as day-boat plaice, lemon butter sauce, ruby chard, monk’s beard; chargrilled pork cutlet, minted potato salad, fruit-cage currant sauce. At breakfast there is ‘a fine range of breads and pastries’. (Lindsay Hunt and John Fisher, Andrew Butterworth, and others)

Guest comments

'As good as ever. The sheer enthusiasm of the young staff (even the managers appear to be in their 20s) makes it a relaxed and happy place. We had a memorable dinner with the freshest ingredients. Breakfast is as good: a magnificent buffet. A wonderful kitchen garden. Peaceful bedroom. Bathroom well equipped. ' - Desmond and Jenny Balmer - February, 2019
'How does The Pig manage to attract so many helpful, efficient and industrious staff? And they seemed to be enjoying their work. ' - Andrew Butterworth - January, 2018
'A beautiful building and fabulous kitchen garden. Large, comfortable bedrooms - not sure about the bath being in the bedroom, but I suppose this is how it has to be nowadays - but there was marmalade at breakfast ! Shabby chic style - which means quite expensive these days. The dining conservatory is like many modern places - noisy ! Stone floors, brick walls, wooden tables with old metal chairs. An atmosphere place. Rooms are expensive and breakfast is extra (£15); the food is reasonably priced by comparison. Very busy - trendy ! ' - Bill Wood - October, 2017
'We know and admire the Pigs. This one is excellent. ' - Chris and Erika Savory - March, 2017
