The hotel group The Pig is gearing up to add a ninth site to its litter next year, this time opening in Warwick just outside Stratford-upon-Avon.
Aptly named THE PIG-on the farm, the hotel will occupy a 16th-century, stone-built manor house surrounded by 53 acres of pasture and land. Alongside 35 bedrooms and suites across the main house, THE PIG-on the farm will also be home to a restaurant, two lounge areas for residents and two private dining rooms available for exclusive hire.
Sustainability will be a major focus at this ninth site. Akin to its other restaurants, the menu will champion its signature 25-mile concept in which all ingredients are sourced from within a 25-mile radius of the hotel, or from the estate itself.
Further sustainable features have been built into the design of the hotel. There will be multiple electric car charging points, as well as bikes available for staff and guests to use as they please. Two of the 53 acres will be dedicated purely to growing fruit and veg for the restaurant, while a mushroom growing house and smokery are set to be part of the concept.
Speaking about the opening, CEO Tom Ross commented: 'We are excited to restore a genuinely unspoilt Grade II-listed house. Subject to us gaining required approvals, working closely with Historic England, we look forward to doing these beautiful buildings justice and restoring them sensitively, with their historic importance at the forefront of all decision making.
‘The classic beauty of these buildings complements our existing portfolio and exists in a county of steep historic importance. We will be creating something a little bit different to our other Pigs but it will still have our classic style running through the fabric of the buildings.’
The Pig group currently owns eight hotels in the south of England, all located in listed buildings, including in Hamphire and Dorset. Alongside this venture in Warwick, which will open in December 2024, it also has another new site in the works set to open in 2025 just outside of Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
