Every Thursday the team at THE PIG-at Combe invite you to join them in the Folly with friends to enjoy a tipple, interesting chatter and a light grazing supper- Thursday is the new Friday after all! With the help of some our local friends and maybe a famous face or two, we will be celebrating everything we love about our local countryside and coast with a series of talks/demos and plenty to nibble on.
Influenced by the seasons, what is growing in the garden and our 25 mile menu suppliers, each week there will be a different theme to the evening.
There really is something for everyone, so here are the dates and what’s on the menu!
