The Pig - in the wall, Southampton, Hampshire
The rooms are tastefully decorated in The Pig's signature style, with comfortable beds and thoughtful touches, while the staff is friendly and welcoming. The hotel also features a lovely breakfast room and a cosy lounge bar serving up the delicious food The Pig group is known for. Its central location makes it a convenient base for exploring the city's attractions, such as the nearby West Quay shopping centre and the Southampton City Art Gallery.

With its central position embedded inside the Medieval city walls, access to the shops, high street and Westquay shopping centre is just a five-minute walk away. The independent shops and boutiques of Oxford Street are a ten-minute walk. It's not the prettiest location however, as there is a large roundabout just down the road.

CHARACTER & STYLE
Finished in The Pig's signature style - with capacious brown leather armchairs to sink into, terracotta pots of herbs on wooden tables and a distressed dresser heaving with homemade cakes and pastries - the characterful interiors and quirky design touches are sure to lift the spirits.
If you're feeling peckish at night, a porter is on hand to serve drinks and snacks when the café is closed. The young team are passionate about the local area, food and the rooms. They'll inform you about the microbrewery round the corner (Dancing Man) and that nearby St Michael's church is the only one standing from the war.

Food & Drink
We love the "piggy snacks", which include crisp pork scratchings with apple sauce, whilst breakfast is a continental spread with a "Piggy pan" cooked breakfast. The deli/café serves up a variety of uncomplicated, hearty fare, such as intriguing salads, home-baked sausage rolls and quiches, boards of cold meats and cheese and some hot food such as sausage and mash, plaice and new potatoes and chilli con carne with cornbread.
Deli Bar: relaxed dining, deli counter, snack boards, cheeses, wines, cocktails. Open 9am-8pm for breakfast, lunch and early supper. Larger plates from £14.
