First visit on Saturday, even though we've lived in the town for 3 years. We both had the full English - it was really tasty, great quality ingredients. Fantastic service with friendly staff. Will definitely be back soon!

The food and service are both excellent. Although it was a busy Saturday morning, an extremely friendly and helpful waitress got us coffee at a seat in the back while we waited for a table in the cafe. We had quite possibly the best traditional cooked breakfastI've ever had. It was so lovely on the Saturday, we went back on... More

Spoilt rotten at the Salt pig on Saturday night for my birthday, great staff, fantastic food and a wonderful rustic approach to fine dining with a good price tag.

Had a meal in here but the heat in the place really made it uncomfortable sitting in eating. All home cooked local produce. Nothing special but not bad either

I've passed this little gem a few times when I have visited the area. This time we went in for lunch. There is a lovely butchers selling gorgeous meat and other deli delights on one side and a coffee shop/cafe the other side. We were made to feel welcome by the local people in there as well as the people... More

Popped in just for a coffee after a walk. Rather cramped but something different as they source their ingredients locally and even have the names of the locals farms used on a blackboard. Very 'rustic' although a bit pricey. Cake was excellent though - think it was peach & banana? Possibly would visit again but personally was nothing outstanding.

Part butcher, part local produce sales, part cafe/restaurant. Brilliant idea executed very well! Went for tea and cake but ended up taking home some of their pies and other bits. Friendly service and its appeal overcame smaller issues like the surroundings being a bit tired!

We went to the Salt Pig for breakfast on Saturday, 11th February. We had the best cooked breakfast that I've ever tasted. All local food - eggs like I've never tasted them - best bread I've ever had in 63 years!!! Divine. Staff happy and friendly. Do go if you are in Wareham.

This isn't really a review, as I've tried to have coffee and a snack here twice in recent weeks, but left without getting served both times. Last time we waited for nearly ten minutes without so much as an acknowledgement, before deciding to go over the road. It wasn't particularly busy, but what staff were there were either pottering around... More
