“Traditional English boutique hotel in central Southampton. Vintage style rooms with luxurious bathrooms and fantastic breakfasts. Ideal for a city break filled with shopping and history in the city from where Titanic set sail, or perfect for a pre or post cruise stopover.”

Hotel Overview

“Situated within the medieval walls of Southampton, THE PIG – in the wall is the smallest of THE PIGs but by no means the least. Living up to the hotel’s standards of greenery, cosy décor and rustic food, the hotel has recently changed its menu to a deli bar, serving up a variety of vibrant salads, the famous sausage rolls and homemade cakes and biscuits. Although a lot smaller than its PIG siblings, the menu is still rammed full of flavour and locally sourced produced. With two rooms situated downstairs and ten rooms tucked away within the narrow and historic walls of the building, the 12 bed hotel really does live up to THE PIG’s self-description of a restaurant with rooms. What better than to relax next to the open lit fire with a glass of a fizz and a slice of cake before retreating upstairs to bed? It is the only place to stay if you're planning a city break to Southampton, or simply plan to stay either pre or post cruise.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Being no more than a five-minute walk from Southampton city centre, THE PIG – in the wall is perfectly situated for those hoping to make the most of Southampton’s shopping. Whether it be an overnight stay or a place to refuel with a glass of wine and bite to eat, the restaurant, although tiny, really is the cosiest place to stop in Southampton. The plants and herbs that decorate the shelves, counter and tables bring a little bit of the countryside into the city.

What is there to do in the area or on site?
If you would like to visit either THE PIG – in the forest or our sister hotel, Lime Wood, a member of our team can transport you over in one of our Landrovers. Whether it be a lunch, dinner or spa treatment, THE PIG has two potting sheds where treatments take place surrounding by the greenness of the New Forest, whilst Lime Wood has an award-winning state-of-the-art spa, gym and a choice of treatment rooms.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
THE PIG – in the wall is the only of our growing litter that doesn’t offer a menu for cooked breakfast options. However, a continental spread of pastries, homemade granolas, cured meats and a selection of cheese and of course a boil your own egg station is spread out each morning for our guests.

Do you offer any other meals and can you recommend good restaurants for lunch and dinner?
Throughout the day we serve a menu that is deli orientated. Within our little kitchen, produce sourced from THE PIG hotel and local business is used within each dish we create. From homemade soups to meat boards to mixed salad bowls, THE PIG – in the wall is still very much influenced by THE PIG ethos of garden to plate dining. For those who are hoping for a larger menu, a member of our team can take you over and pick you up from THE PIG or our sister hotel, Lime Wood for either lunch or dinner. Why not taste the freshness of our garden food in THE PIG – in the forest’s bigger restaurant or enjoy Italian inspired food at the renowned restaurant, Hartnett Holder & Co., at Lime Wood.

Which are your most popular rooms and why?
The biggest rooms at THE PIG – in the wall are the two Spacious rooms based at the front of the hotel. Both rooms have a four-poster bed and a roll top bath, as well as a monsoon shower room and are decorated as elegantly and effortlessly chic as the other PIGs in the litter.

The Pig in the wall hotel, Hampshire: Review

Gorgeous. The front door opens into the Edwardian country style parlour, with armchairs, sofas and pine dining table, and instead of a reception desk, there’s an inviting, well stocked deli bar for all day grazing, coffees, teas, wines by the glass and spirits.

B&B and beyond

Occupying a Georgian townhouse set within Southampton's medieval city walls, The Pig in the Wall successfully marries the homely comforts of a B&B with the quality and standards of an upmarket hotel.

B&B review: Pig In the wall, Southampton

This is a little nugget of a place which delivers a champagne outing on a lemonade budget.

Our favourite affordable hotels

Bedrooms (just 12) are compact, bathrooms generous. Bar snacks by the fire include strips of pork crackling and unctuous slices of sausage roll.
