THE PIG RESTAURANT & HOTEL, BROCKENHURST
The New Forest is one of the most picturesque areas of the UK and The Pig deserves to be considered one of the best restaurants in the region. With many of the dishes ingredients picked from the grounds of the hotel, signatures include risotto, pork belly and pheasant.
