Our Team:

With no pre-requisites other than a passion for the hospitality industry, great chat and a hunger to be successful, THE PIGs and Lime Wood offers a unique opportunity for you to gain unrivalled access to the nerve centre of our business. We support people in their progress towards a range of recognised qualifications and offer invaluable hands-on experience, all packaged specifically to your experience, competencies and aspirations.  Our company is Home Grown in every way, from the food we serve to the way we develop our team.

We aim to home-grow and nurture the hot-shot hoteliers, champion chefs, super spa therapists, grand gardeners and budding bartenders of the future, ensuring that everyone is exposed to the environment and experiences they need to reach their full potential!


Home grown in every way – breaking the mould of country house hotels and positioning our hotels as ‘restaurants with rooms’. With an obsessive commitment to home grown and local produce, THE PIGs celebrate the seasons and use only the best, freshest and most authentic foods and ingredients. 

It is all about the kitchen gardens, they are the beating heart of the operations...everything is driven by the gardener/forager and chef – they grow and find the food – the chef then creates the menu; uncomplicated and simple British garden food.

Lime Wood: 

We don’t do average at Lime Wood… We’ve found the perfect hideaway in an ancient forest… a bolt hole that’s easy to get to but hard to leave. Chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder do the cooking, pulling together both of their much-admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, our relaxed Italian restaurant. At the Herb House people can do yoga on the roof in a herb garden, revive together in double treatment rooms or take in the forest views from the glass fronted sauna. 

“Our hotels are commercially highly successful and very busy, fun establishments. They are less formal than many, yet offer the highest levels of professional craft and personal service. 

We need the brightest, most passionate people to help us achieve our goals – in joining us, we want to help you achieve yours.”

Robin Hutson, Chairman of Lime Wood and CEO of THE PIG hotels
