Our restaurants and Urban Cafe serve food from the local Purbeck area only. It's all about the provenance and we believe that great food can come from your doorstep. Our butchery team and chefs take time and care over your food to bring home the flavours that the Isle Of Purbeck offers bringing an element of creativity as our produce changes daily.

Our restaurants are located in Wareham and Swanage which is in the heart of the Purbecks.

The Salt Pig Restaurants
  • The Salt Pig | Wareham
The Salt Pig opened its doors for the first time in 
2010 in the Saxon town of Wareham. 
James started the cafe with a state of the art coffee
machine, offering the first cappuccino to the small 
Purbeck town. From there, The Salt Pigs Deep Pan
Vegetable Quiches caught wind, becoming 
increasingly popular to local residents across 
Purbeck & Dorset. Our butchery followed, with 
James sourcing meat and fish from across 
Purbeck, including: White Park Beef from Wytch 
Farm, Lamb from Steeple Leaze as well as James 
cross breeding our rare breed Mangalitsa x Berkshire 
pigs and our fish coming from Kimmeridge Bay & 
Poole Bay. Soon The Salt Pig gained national traction 
and the demand for Purbeck Produce increased.

The Salt Pig Too | Swanage

In 2018 The Salt Pig opened its door to its second 
home - The Salt Pig Too - in the seaside town of 
Swanage. With an eye for design, James took over
a former bakery and kitted it out with a rustic 
wooden interior, keeping  some of the trendy assets 
from the previous bakery, including an 1800's bread 
oven. The Salt Pig Too specialises  with its evening 
menu, offering a wide range of authentic dishes 
using Purbeck Produce and being cooked in our
Charcoal Oven, essentially an indoor BBQ using 
Dorset Charcoal to increase local flavour. With 
fabulous service, splendid atmosphere and superb 
food & drink, The  Salt Pig Too is quickly becoming one 
of the most  go to  restaurants in not only Purbeck 
but also the county. We are now open 3-nights a week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday)
