The Wimborne Pig Wimborne

The Wimborne Pig

Location: Wimborne

About: Condé Nast Traveller named The Wimborne Pig as one of the best restaurants in Dorset and one to keep secret for fear of never being able to get a reservation - quite right too. The other fact you may well want to keep schtum about is THE GARDEN! The magical little sun trap of a courtyard garden compliments the outstanding restaurant and is the perfect hideaway to enjoy a gorgeously crafted meal in a laid-back scenario.

The Wimborne Pig prides itself on creating food with ingredients that have been reared by themselves or sourced from like-minded local Dorset suppliers. Their menus change regularly due to the seasonal nature of ingredients and feature dishes such as Spring lamb & fennel meatballs, Pan seared scallops, Wimborne Pig maple glazed pork belly, and Blueberry & almond frangipane. Utterly divine.

This enchanted courtyard garden is perfect for dining outdoors with friends and family. If you ever read ‘The Secret Garden’ as a child, this will transport you right back there again. Don't forget to book though…

Highly Recommended: Cod & chorizo burger, pickles, herb salted fries, crunchy salad, tartare sauce, toasted brioche bun - £19.95
