Praise for The Pigs:
Rick Stein: 'Dinner, bed and breakfast at The Pig, any Pig, is a comforting thought of some lovely flavoured pork, a British abundance of vegetables and some fabulous red wine.'
The Sunday Times: 'There isn't a trace of cynicism here - just enthusiasm, craft and people who love what they do, creating a place you really, really don't want to leave.'
The Financial Times 'Some inherited memory of a weekend with grandparents I never had... a little bohemian, and unbelievably good at cooking.'
Tom Parker Bowles 'The Pig revolutionised the country house hotel, creating a true home away from home. No pomp or pretence, just beautiful rooms and magnificent food with produce from their own kitchen gardens. Where The Pig goes, the others follow.'
