We feel that the current standard of the facilities on the roadside is generally very low and there is a lack of facilities for the whole family. First rate facilities are at the heart of Hog & Hedge’s desire to improve the journeys of the British motorist and are a fundamental brand promise.
Our fresh food kitchen sources the best of West Country produce and freshly prepares healthy, quality food for all the family. All of our food is freshly made on site each day. At Hog & Hedge we don’t do fried food, we are real people who cook real food from fresh ingredients.
We offer a selection of handcrafted coffees, organic Fairtrade tea and delicious hot chocolate to give our guests that well deserved break from their journey. We source only the best beans, and ensure they are blended and roasted to perfection to provide the perfect tonic on your journey.
We understand that not everyone has time to stop and enjoy a break, so all our food and drink is available to take away. Our classic selection of sandwiches, salads, wraps & toasties, as well as hearty one-pot dishes and chunky soups are perfect to get you back on the road asap.
The primary reason vehicle passengers stop on a journey, besides refuelling, is to use the loo. So why are the standards of roadside loos so poor? We don’t know the answer, but at Hog & Hedge we see it as the most important facility we offer to our guests and our loos will always be pristinely clean.
Having young families ourselves we know the frustrations of trying to find ample, clean baby changing facilities on the roadside. At Hog & Hedge we have a dedicated baby changing room, with breast feeding chairs. We also have a microwave and bottle warmer to assist with baby meal times.
Hog & Hedge will always offer a fast takeout service for drivers in a hurry, but our true aim is to encourage people to spend a little longer with us. Hog & Hedge is on a mission to put the pleasure back into long car journeys by providing an engaging and enjoyable destination en route. We want to encourage you to escape the cramped conditions of your cars, stretch your legs, share some food and stay a while.
It drives us mad when we have to pay for wifi, so we offer it free. At Hog & Hedge we understand that roadside locations are useful meeting places, as well as a good place to relax and pick up your messages, so we have a dedicated area for those who want to have a meeting or simply to plug in their laptops / tablets and get on the web.
Having young families ourselves we know the frustrations of travelling with young children, that is why we have a dedicated play area.
Dogs are very welcome at Hog & Hedge. We understand that dogs need a break from a long car journey as much as their owners. Four legged friends are welcome to join their owners inside, where there will always be fresh drinking water, and there is a good sized grassed area to stretch the dog’s legs.
