Husband's 40th treat to The Pig in Brockenhurst

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Poor husband, the timing of his birthday was not great as we had an 8-week old, but not to be deterred, I decided on taking him to lunch at the well-reviewed amongst my friends 'Pig'. It did not disappoint. Prior to the meal they let me breastfeed in the lounge area so I could fill up my baby to ensure a nice nap over the lunch period, and my husband and I can enjoy our meal in peace (hopefully!). I had a non-alcoholic cocktail and my husband had a choice G and T and we ordered a bar snack of 'Piggy Bits' - I have an insatiable appetite at the moment!

After we have ensured baby is well and truly fed we take a stroll around the grounds to get the little fella to nap. It worked a charm. We carefully wheeled in one snoozy baby next to our table and enjoyed our meal - luckily for us (and everyone else) the baby napped through the whole sitting!

The menu here is constantly changing with the season and they are committed to home-growing produce and only using produce within a 25 mile radius so what you are eating is truly local. We also discovered as this is a hotel they also have a spa, so we dream of a future where we can escape just the two of us to this little oasis of calm and delight in the future.
