THE PIG–at Combe is really a restaurant with rooms nestled in the Otter Valley near Honiton. The secluded, mellow, honey-coloured Elizabethan gem is set in 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire countryside - yet easily accessible - being 1.5 miles from Honiton, just off the A30 in the village of Gittisham. It is 8 miles from the south Devon coast, 15 mins to Exeter, 1 hour to Bristol and just over 3 hours to London.
THE PIG-at Combe, along with its sister PIG properties puts the food and dining experience at the heart of the operation.
Home grown in every way and designed in the style that has become THE PIG’s signature, it features a panelled garden restaurant, a restored Georgian Kitchen, 30 bedrooms with a touch of luxury but bags of homely charm, and massage treatment rooms in the walled infusion garden.
The hotel has 30 rooms, 17 in the main house, 10 in the stable yard and Curlditch Cottages.
The bedrooms in the main house are spacious and classic PIG style with far reaching views across the Devonshire countryside. The new additions here are the three rafter rooms in the previously unused attic spaces.
They have 10 stable yard bedrooms converted from the old stables and coach houses – these retain much of the original features, partitions and even flooring and tiling.

The PIG at Combe Restaurant
THE PIG AT COMBE RESTAURANT
With an obsessive commitment to homegrown and local produce, THE PIG-at Combe celebrates the seasons and uses only the best, freshest and most authentic foods and ingredients. It is all about the kitchen gardens, they are the beating heart of the operation...everything is driven by the gardener/forager and chef – they grow and find the food – the chef then creates the menu; uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro-seasons with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours.
With a serious commitment to the local community and surrounding area THE PIG-at Combe celebrates Devon! Devon’s distinctive character and unique combination of ancient woodland and agricultural farmland, all within casting distance of the sea, means THE PIG-at Combe has access to some of the freshest local fish, amazing meats, award-winning cheeses and English wines in the country.
The menus are written around what is available in the walled kitchen gardens or delivered to the door from the local suppliers–creating the 25 mile menu concept. The menus will change by the minute, depending on what the forager supplies and what the kitchen garden team deems to be in perfect condition. The food style is driven by homegrown clarity of flavour, true to the seasons and influenced by the Otter Valley and its proximity to the coast. 21 of the local suppliers are highlighted on the 25 mile menu, but this is not the exhaustive list! THE PIG-at Combe is always on the hunt to find and support new and emerging producers that can add depth of flavour and authenticity to the menu. Guests will very rarely see the same dishes on the menu twice!
Choose between the panelled restaurant, which brings a little bit of the outside in, or the old garden Folly, a rustic hideaway in the grounds for ‘drop in’ dining. It has an atmospheric indoor/outdoor bar and dining area with wood-fired oven, tables and benches and lots of cigars!

There’s a saying in Devon that ‘if you stick your finger in the ground it will grow’, and the kitchen garden is the beating heart of our new addition. The difference here is there are 3 walled gardens - the vegetable garden, the herb garden and the infusion garden.
Thanks to THE PIG-at Combe’s location, being 8 miles from the coast the menu will consist of fresh fish as well as the very best Devonshire cheese and locally reared meat from butchers around the market town of Honiton.
