Willy’s ACV and Smoked & Uncut are back for 2022!

smoked and uncut willys 2022

Festival season is around the corner, and we can’t wait to visit our good friends at Smoked & Uncut…

Never been? What is smoked and uncut!?

Lime Wood and THE PIG hotels host their epic Smoked & Uncut festivals each year across their hotels. The festivals are open-air parties; intimate home-grown festivals, not too far from home, that are just as much a celebration of food as they are music. You can expect some seriously good festival food, feasting with a great line up of chefs, drinks flowing (of course) and a fab line up! It really is the perfect day out and they even have glamping at some of the festivals!

SMoked & UNcut 2022

4 Smoked & Uncut festivals will take place this summer across THE PIG in Brockenhurst, THE PIG- near Bath, THE PIG- at Bridge Place and Lime Wood, and we will be attending them all!

Joining plenty of other stalls including various food stalls and other festival partners, our Willy’s ACV team will be set up at our very own stall at all of the festivals with plenty of drinks to sample and try including our fan favourites, our Kombucha + ACV cans!

You can graze the day away at their indoor and outdoor feasting tents hosted by Angela Hartnett, some special Chef friends, James Golding and PIG Chef Apprentices!

Feasting with Angela and friends

Indoors, Angela Hartnett will be at the helm across the kitchens cooking up a 4-course feasting menu with their chef friends. Each chef will take on a course, so you can expect dishes that are not only full of flavour but full of their unique styles. Angela will be joined by different Chef friends at each festival.

Feast with our Apprentices and James Golding

Brand new for 2022, the field kitchen will be serving up garden classics rustled up by PIG chef Apprentices and Group Chef Director, James Golding. James has been with THE PIG since day one and is a champion of local, sustainable, and simple food!

The PIG apprentices will be cooking under the field canvas to serve a deliciously simple 3 course menu using ingredients from the kitchen gardens and THE PIGs local hero suppliers to each festival. This will all be served on long sharing tables, perfect for groups to sit together.

There are 4 festival dates, 4 locations and a ticket with your name on it…
