This week, The Pig is mostly…
EAGERLY anticipating an emotional reunion with superchef (and baker extraordinaire) Rob Allcock and his team when The Longs Arms (South Wraxall) reopens its doors on Friday 6 November – and get this: not only will this glorious gastropub be serving breakfast from 9am at weekends too, but they’re also taking bookings for Christmas Day!

GEARING up to experience a taste of ‘An Indian in Autumn’ at The Mint Room (Lower Bristol Road) on Monday 2 November when a very special Supper Club puts guest chef Saurav Nath (Benares; Gymkana) at the hob to present a very special seasonal menu that’s guaranteed to entice, seduce and amaze all the senses. Side dishes, superb service and a sparkling environment in which to enjoy this very special event come as standard, all for just £39pp (www.mintroom.co.uk)
THRILLED at the news that that Jacky Chan will be returning to The Peking (Kingsmead Square) to showcase his culinary skills and host not just one but two more Stage by Jacky Tasting Menu events on both Sunday 22 November and Sunday 13 December. For further details and to make that all-important reservation, call 01225 466377, but be warned: Stage by Jacky events sell out fast – read why here: https://thepigguide.com/review-stage-jacky-at-the-peking/
INTRIGUED by Homewood’s Dining Domes: one part space age pod, one part London Eye capsule booth… all parts a uniquely beautiful, super-stylish way for up to six people to enjoy a sumptuous lunch or dinner in magical surroundings (https://www.homewoodbath.co.uk)
STOCKING up sustainably either ‘live’ or online for click’n’collect at the Refillable Shop, Bath’s brand new, big-hearted emporium of foodie fun on Cleveland Place East, London Road. Take your own container, grab a complimentary recycled brown paper bag or buy a glass jar to fill at your leisure – but whichever way you choose to do it, just do it: this is sustainable shopping at its very, very best (https://www.refillable.shop)
