Phil Samways Pork….

Phil Samways specialises in Pork which he rears and produces from his small holding in the village of Langton Matravers. Phil is a keen producer and is seen at many of the local farmers markets.

Due to his herd of pigs being fairly small in numbers, Phil can concentrate on rearing them to a high standard, therefore ensuring a mouthwatering flavour is contained in the meat.

We already use Phils Ham in all our ham Panini’s served daily so can grantee the quality he provides.


The Seven Mile menu is a new concept we will be running in the place of our daily specials board. Each month we will be concentrating on an independent supplier within a 7 mile radius of the castle, that raises and sells their own produce. Within the month we will be offering a couple of dishes from their produce to raise awareness of the great tastes and talent that Purbeck has to offer. Supporting local producers is important to us and so we have been looking for a way to incorporate it into the menu, without our customers having to incur the additional costs this may bring and so we felt the 7 mile menu would be ideal.
