About Us

We are an Urban Farm Shop / Cafe / Restaurant / Outside Caterer that opened in the heart of Wareham nearly six years ago.

Here at The Salt Pig, our aim is to bring you the very best produce from throughout Purbeck, whether you are buying to cook at home from our in-house butcher or fish counter, or having breakfast or lunch in our cafe. You can be sure you are eating the best to be found in Purbeck, the most sustainable and environmental, as well as fairly priced.

We have a fish counter selling only day boat catches or local potted crabs and lobster direct from the fisherman and an in-house butchery where we source all of our meat personally from local named Purbeck farms and so the quality and traceability of all of our meat can be assured.

We also sell Purbeck produce including local cheeses, charcuterie & smoked products, artisan bread, vegetables, ice cream, condiments and honey, soaps, a range of ales, ciders & wines and our own ready meals and a wide variety of other seasonal products. We pride ourselves on knowing the true provenance of everything we sell.

Our philopsophy has always been "live local.... eat local". To ensure that our cafe / shop is convenient and accessible to all, we are open 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. - 7 days a week.

We offer a different evening menu on Friday & Saturday nights (and our shop is also open later on these evenings). Our outside catering has been growing and growing and we cater for corporate events, weddings, private parties, events and functions.
