Good Hotel Guide Review
The setting is pure hog heaven at Robin Hutson’s third Pig hotel, surrounded by a deer park in a fold in the Mendips. The part-Georgian building comes in the group’s signature shabby-chic style. ‘The chic outweighs the shabby, though I’d welcome a splash of colour,’ writes a reader, whose room was ‘huge, with two proper armchairs and a table at the end of the bed’ and had an ‘excellent bathroom’. The smallest bedrooms have a walk-in monsoon shower; the largest have a four-poster, freestanding bath and walk-in shower. The Hide, in the kitchen garden, has a four-poster bed and log-burner. In the restaurant and conservatory, and under canvas, 25-mile menus are built around produce from the huge kitchen garden, with dishes such as thyme-roasted romanesco, mountain mint and pickled raisin or chalk-stream trout, rainbow chard and Fowey mussels. Our reader found the portions a tad large, but loved the home-grown vegetables and ‘excellent triple-cooked chips’. Flatbreads are dispensed from a wood-fired oven. Breakfast brings ‘big jugs of freshly squeezed juices, huge loaves of fresh bread, croissants, pastries’, the works.
