Pig on the Beach, Studland Bay, Dorset

Situated along Studland Bay, Dorset, THE PIG on the Beach is the latest hotel offering in the impressive PIG portfolio from Robin Hutson.

The hotel recently underwent construction and joins sister sites, THE PIG in the Forest, THE PIG in the Wall and THE PIG near Bath.

Comprising 23 bedrooms, two treatment rooms, a private dining room and a greenhouse restaurant, THE PIG on the Beach – formerly The Manor House Hotel – opened in Summer 2014. Keen to find more about THE PIG on the Beach, Premier Hospitality caught up with James Cole of Link 2 Build, the main contractor on the project, to see what has been going on in the bay.

James Cole, said:

“The property is owned by the National Trust and leased by Robin, and has been transformed into his latest entry in THE PIG franchise. The hotel is situated in a prime location along Studland Bay and benefits from beautiful views.

“We have been involved with THE PIG brand from the very beginning. Robin started with THE PIG in the Forest, before opening THE PIG in the Wall, THE PIG near Bath and now this fourth site in Dorset.

“Robin’s always had an idea of what he wants and the end goal is always in his head, so to be a part of all these sites is just great.”

As part of the project, a new extension was built to provide the hotel with additional bedrooms. The extension took the room count up to 23, with bedroom styles ranging from Snug and Comfy, through to Generous and Hideaway rooms, all offering something a little bit different.

James explained:

“Moving forward, the existing hotel didn’t have enough bedrooms to meet the requirements of THE PIG, so we undertook an extension to the North Wing to provide eight additional bedrooms. We transformed the Coach House into a hotel office; we built a dining section to the rear of the building; and treatment cabins were installed at the back of the hotel.”

Each of the hotel’s 23 rooms has been expertly designed to provide the best possible night’s sleep, with comfortable beds, oversized monsoon showers, Nespresso machines and larders chock-full of snacks. Most of the larger bedrooms also include four poster beds and a free-standing bath.

Children are welcome at THE PIG and all efforts are made to accommodate cots and extra beds where possible. Ground floor rooms, disabled friendly rooms and even a dog friendly room is available at THE PIG on the Beach.

Dining at the hotel is presented via the delightful The Kitchen at THE PIG, which is overseen by Chef James Golding. The Kitchen serves up simple British garden food, influenced by the forest and the coast and has a strong emphasis on fresh, clean flavours.

Most of The Kitchen’s ingredients are grown in the hotel’s Kitchen Garden or sourced locally if they can’t be grown on site. The food is served in a Victorian greenhouse dining room, utilising bare wood table tops and bone handled cutlery.

The menu at THE PIG will continue to change, but will typically include starters and small plates, garden sides and desserts, alongside a delicious selection of mains. The Kitchen will open for lunch from 12pm to 2:30pm and for dinner from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

James, said:

“To see THE PIG grow is great. THE PIG in the Forest is currently fully booked for the next six months and THE PIG on the Beach will be just as successful.”
