Eating at the Pig

A very generous friend of my daughter invited the two of us to lunch to celebrate her third anniversary yesterday. So off we went to the Pig on the Beach at Studland. It's a very special hotel and restaurant - the sort of place you save for really special occasions, and not somewhere we had been before. But we'll certainly be saving our pennies to go again.

A former old  Manor House, the Pig is really mellow looking.


 The location is beautiful with stunning views over the sea to the Old Harry Rocks.


Although our table was late, we were happy waiting in comfortable seating around a log fire with our bubbly. The service was impeccable and the food delicious.  After the meal we walked around the immaculate kitchen garden where many of the vegetables we had been eating had grown, and we saw a number of quirky outbuildings that had been converted into rooms let to guests, plus a roundhouse that was in use for another celebratory meal. We were very impressed by the  ingenious use of all that was available. 

As you can see, the wine flowed and a great time was had by all. Thanks to the lovely Dawn, who also took the landscape photos, and husband Andy, for their amazing generosity.

Ooh, it looks wonderful! I bet the prices are sky high, so I don't suppose I will get to visit, but nice to know it is there just in case my ship does come in.

Hi Jenny. The food prices were high but good value and manageable for a special occasion. Not sure about drinks though. You can see more here: https://www.thepighotel.com/on-the-beach/
