During These Times, We All Deserve A Treat

Welcome to The Salt Pig

The Salt Pig in Wareham was established in 2010 by James Warren and we opened our second premises, The Salt Pig Too, in Swanage in 2018. Both premises comprise of an urban farm shop, butchery, and a café. We also provide outside catering for events and weddings.

The Salt Pig Restaurants

Shops & Restraurants

Our two shops are situated in Dorset and Swanage. Both shops offer Purbeck products and fresh produce. Pop in and enjoy some tasty meals.

Outdoor catering The Salt Pig

Outside Catering

Our outside catering has grown and grown since we opened, primarily through word of mouth, as we offer something a bit different. Let us know if we may assist you. 

The Salt Pig Wedding & Functions


We cater for weddings, events, corporate meetings, training events, conferences, private parties, dinner parties, functions, BBQ's & individual picnics.

What Sets us Apart

We can proudly say that all our beef, lamb, and pork comes from farms with high levels of stewardship located within 8 miles of both shops. We are able to tell you every detail about the rearing and welfare of the animals.

Mangalitsa & Berkshire Pigs

We keep over 160 of our own rare breed Mangalitsa & Berkshire pigs on local heathland and woodland, including the RSPB Nature Reserve at Arne (4 miles from The Salt Pig). The pigs featured on the BBC Countryfile Winter Special in February 2018.
