This week, The Pig is mostly…
DELIGHTED to have made acquaintance with head chef Kevin Chandler, who is now leading the brigade at the characterfully chic Methuen Arms (Corsham) – what Kevin doesn’t know about seasonal, locally-sourced gastropub greatness isn’t worth knowing. Top tip: join the Butcombe Loyalty Club and enjoy 25% off food every Wednesday, extra rewards throughout the year… plus a £5 bonus just for signing up!

GETTING spooky at Las Iguanas (Seven Dials/Saw Close) when the best of two (unearthly!) worlds collide in a dual Halloween/Mexican Day of the Dead celebration. Enjoy a spooky season Boo-ttomless Brunch with unlimited prosecco or draught beer for just £24.95 Sunday- Friday 12noon-5pm/12noon-3pm on Saturday (upgrade to add suitably thrilling cocktails to your drink options for just £5pp extra) while all cocktails and mocktails are 2-for-1 every day from Wednesday 28th October – Monday 2nd November. There’s nothing scary about that, is there? (https://www.iguanas.co.uk/restaurants/bath)
WISHING hearty congratulations to the super-sweet Sugarcane Studio, whose brand new street treat HQ on Grove Street has recently opened its doors to flaunt the most amazing choux buns, macarons and related posh patisserie (at distinctly non-posh prices!) for miles around (https://www.sugarcanestudio.co.uk)
TAKING Afternoon Tea at the Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa any Monday-Thursday from 2nd – 26th November and enjoying a complimentary glass of champagne to guarantee that our afternoon delights go with a swing – simply use the offer code WEEKDAY TREAT when making that all-important booking. Cheers, Piggies! (https://www.royalcrescent.co.uk/offers/weekday-treat/)
EXPERIENCING that ‘younger than springtime’ feeling at brand new restaurant The Elder (South Parade): “an intelligent, well-considered addition to the Bath food scene infused with refined, dignified glamour; makes dining in Bath’s newest kid on the restaurant block as convivially congenial as a reunion with an old friend.” Read our full review here: https://thepigguide.com/review-the-elder-restaurant-south-parade/.
