I needed to find somewhere restful to stay before a long trip and decided to look for somewhere rural as I live in a city and often visit the seaside for other things. The black pig certainly fitted that brief. It was mentioned that there was a function on that evening, however I didn't feel this would affect me as...

Apologies for taking so long to respond to this review but i am sorry that you had a bad experience last November but we only took over the pub in February and didn't actually start selling the rooms until May 2016. i hope that any new visits will exceed your expectations.

We stayed her after being double booked elsewhere and the rooms were very comfy and food was amazing too. The staff couldn't have done anymore to make our stay more welcoming. The breakfast was perfect and certainly sent us on our way with a full belly.

Nice bedroom in a local pub under new management who are trying to rebuild this pub's reputation after a difficult period. They are trying hard and deserve support! The food was good, the beer good and the atmosphere friendly.

The Black Pig serves a range of basic lunches, some with baguettes, but gets more elaborate on Sundays. Avoid Mondays (close) There are new owners so the large dog is gone, but they are trying out takeaway and home delivery. A real fire is already lit, but the bar staff had more trouble lighting the candles on each table. No...

As ever a great lunch. ploughmans is our favourite and the draught beer is ex. This combined with a local walk the best as you don't feel so guilty afterwards. Good location and comfortable surroundings.

Had a meal at The Black Pig on Sat 5th Sept 2015 with my wife and father. We all had the same starter but three different mains. We all agreed the food was excellent. Don't take my word for it, give it a try.

Picked this pub based on its name and the latest reviews on this site. We weren't disappointed, the new owners are trying very hard to make this a great place to stay, and they are succeeding. The food is excellent and well priced. Big portions too, so be warned! Our room was a good size, everything worked as it should,...

Just got home after staying at The Black Pig in Staple and had to post to let everyone know this is a hidden gem of a venue. The hosts were amazing. So friendly and helpful. They literally couldn't do enough for you. I stayed in a single room for a wedding I was attending and it was clean, comfortable and...

We stayed here overnight on the recommendations of tripadvisor comments. Sat Nav let us down a bit but finding the pub was not a problem when you started seeing the Black Pig picture signs in Staple itself to show where it was. We found our reception prompt and welcoming and our room and en suite very nice and clean. The...
