The Fontmell Pigs


Keeping it local - Fontmell Pigs

Did you know we breed our own rare breed Gloucester old spot cross Berkshire's just 2 miles from the pub. This provides all the pork for the pub from the sausages and bacon that guests enjoy at breakfast to our Sunday pork shoulder roast to the pork scratchings on the bar. Even the sausage rolls on the bar are freshly baked with our own pork. It is part of our home grown philosophy to know the provenance of the food we deliver to your table. Keeping it local is in our DNA and our pigs are just one example of our dedication to your plate. READ MORE...
