have offered us a very warm welcome.

The Blue Pig is a
charming pub where we offer fine ale, lager, food, and wine. We prepare the
food from our own recipes. So why not come and enjoy the soup, cottage pie,
chilli con carne, steak and ale pie or one of our fine curries.
The meat has
been selected from a local butcher.
The wine list is varied and has been
selected from a local supplier.
However, a good country pub needs its fine ales
and this is no exception.
We pride ourselves in keeping quality real ales

Why not join us at The Blue
Pig, in the very heart of Wolvey - just a few steps from that same
History is ingrained in every beam and Inglenook- There has
been a pub here for hundreds of years-and this version is over 200 years
old. Stagecoaches once stopped here to change horses and even the name
itself reflects stories and legends surrounding this part of Warwickshire.
Once called The White Boar-(Richard III’s emblem), after defeat by Henry at
nearby Bosworth Field, many hostelries with this name hastily painted their
signs blue- for the Blue Boar was the emblem of the Earl of Oxford, Henry’s
chief supporter. hence the Blue Pig. You can read more about the history of
the pub including name changes, by reading the detailed boards inside.
The Romans were here, the Knights Templars were here and
Wolvey was recorded in the Domesday book in 1086. Warwick The Kingmaker and
the Duke of Clarence were reputed to have refreshed themselves here, and
Elizabeth the First waited in Wolvey whilst horses were changed during a
journey between Leicester and Coventry. On a cold winter’s night there is
still always a big log fire roaring in the enormous pub fireplace, and as
the wind tugs the trees in the grounds of Wolvey Hall opposite, it remains
what it has been for centuries-a welcome refuge for the weary traveller
seeking good ale good conversation and good honest pub grub.
With whitewashed walls and beautiful hanging baskets it is
as welcoming here in the Summer as in the winter. Morris Dancers come to
perform or Traditional Folk Music wafts from the open windows. On balmy
Summer days, with rooks cawing overhead, a warm sun and the parasols
fluttering over the picnic tables, and Hall Lanes winding off into open
countryside, at times it is hard not to believe you have suddenly been
transported to Cornwall or Dorset.
There is a large restaurant area set to one side. It is
big enough to host special functions. Diners also spread to other areas
of the pub, and outside in the picturesque terraced garden during good
weather. The food is truly home cooked on the premises this
includes the mashed potatoes that Fran asks Steve to peel on a regular
basis! The meat has been selected from a local butcher. The wine
list is varied and has been selected from a local supplier .
Wolvey is a popular recreational spot for visitors and
tourists. There is good walking to be had locally, and Ramblers often use it
as a start or finish point. There are several good cycle rides nearby,
whether for family groups or Cycle Clubs. Anglers and Golfers both have
several venues nearby too. And it is within walking
distance of local camp sites. It is no exaggeration to say that The Blue Pig
has a fame beyond the immediate area. It had a mention on Ant and Dec’s
Saturday Night TV programme and it has featured several times on BBC Radio
broadcasts. Many people from the nearby towns of Coventry,
Nuneaton Rugby and Leicester know it and love it.
The ambience overall is of an informal friendly, welcoming pub with no
airs and graces and a very proud tradition. The clientele is an easy mix
of locals, business people, the farming community, and visitors. You can
always judge a pub by counting the locals-they know a bargain when they
see one! “ The Pig” offers honest, reasonably priced fare which caters
for all. Children and pets are welcome. It has Disabled toilets and
there is easy access for those who are frail, infirm or in wheelchairs.
