  • We came to stay at Hanbury Manor (24thSept 2017) and were looking forward to eating lunch at The Sow and Pigs, but were bitterly disappointed to find it had closed on 14th August 2017. It was a wonderful pub and every time we had visited we had excellent food. So sad to see it’s demise, and so sorry for the owners.

  • Whilst researching my family history I have come across a Great Uncle who is shown on the 1901 Census as the ‘Inn Keeper’ for the White Swann, in Thundridge. Its marked as no.19 on the Census and the Sow & Piggs as no.17. Unfortunately though I cannot find any history of the inn. Can anybody help?

  • If you ask anyone who lived or lives in the neighbourhood of the Sow and Pigs (as did I, growing up), they will tell you that it is in Thundridge, not Wadesmill!!

    It’s a bit of a tricky point, as technically, the Parish is Thundridge, but we are fierce as to the distinction that Wadesmill is on the other (north) side of the river (Rib)!!
