THE PIG Hotel hosted their annual Smoked & Uncut Festival, a buzzing two-day celebration of food and music. Nestled in the heart of the ancient New Forest, the Vintage Bar Box® luxury converted horsebox bar trailer was positioned under the trees, as guests soaked up the sounds of the summer whilst sipping on Hambledon’s award winning English sparkling wine from Hampshire.
The Smoked & Uncut story started with acoustic Sunday sessions held in the bars of Lime Wood and THE PIG, supporting local acts and providing guests with live music entertainment. Within a year Smoked & Uncut had grown into a small Sunday afternoon gathering with live music and a BBQ in the hotel grounds, perfect for soaking up the sun with the family.
The relaxed atmosphere, laid back beats, a passion for good honest food, locally sourced and simply cooked, all within the New Forest setting, proved to be the start of something pretty special. Within a couple of years Smoked & Uncut was becoming known as a festival with over 500 people attending a Sunday afternoon of live acts and street food stalls at Lime Wood, THE PIG, THE PIG near Bath and THE PIG on the beach. By 2016, Smoked & Uncut had doubled in size and our first venture into Glamping at THE PIG near Bath.
We look forward to next Smoked & Uncut Festival, which is at the Lime Wood Hotel!
