A NEW ADDITION to the famed ‘Pig’ hotel litter will be arriving this March, as we see the relaunch of the former Hunstrete House Hotel. This Georgian pile, sitting on the Mendip Hills between Bath and Bristol in Pensford, has been given the signature Pig shabby chic makeover, and will feature a greenhouse restaurant, private room for dinner parties, two treatment rooms – and 29 bedrooms for overnight guests. There are already two Pig hotels, in the New Forest and Hampshire, and, following ‘our’ Pig (to be known as ‘The Pig near Bath’), there’s a fourth set to open in Dorset (‘The Pig on the Beach’) in May. Each, they say, is ‘driven by the gardener, forager and chef in the kitchen garden’. Think of them as restaurants you can stay at, perhaps. The Pig near Bath will have its own walled kitchen garden, and what can’t be grown here will be sourced from within 25 miles. Chef James Golding – who launched the kitchen at the Hampshire area Pig, and has worked at The Savoy, J Sheekey, Le Caprice and Soho House New York – will be overseeing the menu, which will change each day and make the most of the 20 acres of woodland and deer park surrounding the restaurant. There’s also a wood-fired oven in the courtyard, fruit cages, a wild flower meadow and resident chickens. Bookings are being taken now on 0845 077 9494, or through the website. ✱ www.thepighotel.com
