Wow, what a gorgeous and quaint little place. Tucked into the historic Southampton walls, this little restaurant/hotel is a hidden gem! The décor is quintessentially British, open log fire, rustic furniture and even little plant pots with fresh radishes and herbs as centre pieces. It’s like stepping straight into the country side from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Pig in the Wall offers lovely light bites, sharing boards and homemade cakes. The perfect pit-stop for a quick snack. Although, I say quick…we ended up staying for two hours sipping tea in front of the open fire. It was idyllic.
We shared a ‘cured meats sharing board’ and some ‘honey-mustard glazed chipolatas’ and they were extremely tasty! The board came with crispy bread, gherkins, capers and a chutney that tasted just like Christmas.
The Pig in the Wall is sister to The Pig in Brockenhurst which does offer a la carte evening meals. The Pig in the Wall offers a shuttle bus service to ‘The Pig’ if you have booked an overnight stay.
An amazing meal, followed by a hassle-free stay at a cosy, charming establishment. The Pig boasts an amazing reputation and is definitely next on my list…with hopefully an indulgent stay at The Pig in the Wall. Next birthday present? Hint hint…
