After flying all night and getting a ride here from Heathrow we were overjoyed to get a warm welcome to this architecturally pleasing and cozy hotel. Not only was the bed and room comfortable and the bathroom fantastic, the fresh and delicious food was superb! We had an excellent dinner, tasty and simple and a satisfying breakfast. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a wedding at The Pig in the Wall. All the guests stayed over night after the reception. 5 stars do not do this place justice. The whole event was wonderful. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The chef catered for all the different dietary needs of the guests. The staff were charming and couldn't do enough to make the day/evening/morning go smoothly. If you are looking for a venue for a small, informal wedding I would highly recommed The Pig in the Wall. Thank you to all the staff for making the day so special.

The Pig in the Wall is a fabulous eaterie and hotel almost on the Southampton waterfront - but most certainly on the 'Old Waterfront". The dining room is full of comfortable seating and tables suitable for meals and snacks. Lovely for couples and larger groups. The menu is great, small but brilliant. Delicious flavours, great quality. The staff are 'just lovely' - all of them. There's joy in all of them, and it's infectious. If you're looking for somewhere small and special The Pig in the Wall is perfect.

This was our first Pig and we found it comfortable, quiet, and ideally situated. We walked to the hotel from the train station, and also walked to the theatre, the shopping malls and parks, the marina, around the walls, and to the Isle of Wight ferry which is very close by. Our room looked out at the front of the hotel - where there are tables and chairs, lovely to sit in the Easter sun - and the bathroom wall adjoins onto the city wall so is interestingly curvy! There are also the most beautiful tiles on the floor. Lovely towels, bedding, and a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and milk. The only aspect of the stay I would improve on is the rainfall shower, a personal dislike of mine as when I'm washing my hair in the morning I really don't like getting soaked all over and shampoo in my eyes and ears, which doesn't happen with a directional, hand held shower! Also the taps are right up against the edge of the hand basin which is really awkward when trying to use a flannel. As for the menu, we were interested to do it the first day, but didn't feel motivated to repeat, we were struggling to find what we would have chosen on subsequent days. The non-cooked breakfast at £12 was very good. The strongest point of the hotel, and what makes it stand out from the crowd, is the staff, who are exceptionally kind and helpful, always smiling and energetic. Full marks to the room staff too, the room was always done to the highest standard.

We have stayed at the Pig in the wall before and visited for coffee a couple of times. It is a beautiful sanctuary in Southampton, sitting nestled in the old wall, really lovely, friendly accomodating staff. My only complaint is that each time I have visited, most recently Sunday 17 April, the coffee has not been good. A flat white does not have a ton of froth on top, the coffee doesn't have much flavour and really is not worth £3.50 at all! If the coffee was good, the Pig in the Wall would be absolutely perfect

Ive been to the New Forest before and it was lovely, but decided to go to this one as we wanted to do a bit of shopping too. It was beautiful, what a relaxed venue with the best, welcoming staff. We had a stunning lunch. I am now planning to come back with some more friends in the summer Would definately recommend

The staff were amazing and so attentive and helpful. Couldn’t ask for more. Thought that a snug room and dinner bed and breakfast was a good rate. And it was. However…… the room is very difficult to negotiate and having no wardrobes, just a coat rack at the top of vertical , steep, long, small stairs means we keep losing coat hangers down the vertiginous drop. One side of the bed is impossible to stand upright at all and getting into bed and out is a challenge , especially in the dark! Think the description does not fully explain the difficulties. Also there is an air conditioning unit , outside the window, that serenaded us from arrival at 4 till 8.30 pm. Also as a vegetarian I struggled with the menu. The main course offered either a full on whole cooked cheese dish or a Vegan meal. I plumped for Vegan; Lentil cottage pie. As cheese can keep me awake. Unfortunately it was tasteless. Very neutral consistency like baby food. I could not eat it. I knew that being a smaller pig I would be limited but I did not anticipate bland or boring. Very very disappointed.

Stopped off at this most beautiful establishment for a drink before settling into our hotel after a delicious dinner at the Coriander Lounge. The atmosphere was just perfect and we had a bottle of wine before bed. Thank you to all.

First visit to The Pig-in the wall to celebrate New Year. Having only previously stayed at the Pig in Canterbury, the hotel is intimate (12 rooms with 1 dining/lounge area) with very friendly staff and set, literally, in the historic surrounding of ye olde City wall. With a private car park, The Pig is ideally located walking distance of the town, parks, the river and St Mary’s Stadium. The food and drinks menu is broad without being overwhelming - and you too may enjoy being able to “complete” the menu if you stay for lunch & dinner for a night or 2! The room (4) was spacious and dangerously relaxing with the bedside bath. François leads a dedicated team who provided a warm and welcome atmosphere, perfect to see in the New Year.
