We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well
It’s all about the Kitchen Garden
We have an obsessive commitment to home grown and local produce at THE PIG-at Bridge Place. We celebrate the seasons and use only the best, freshest and most authentic foods and ingredients. Our surroundings influence our food in every way, what cannot be grown in our Kitchen Garden is sourced from within a 25-mile radius.
Everything is driven by our gardener and forager – they grow and find the food – our chef then creates the menu.
Our commitment to a 25-mile menu not only supports our local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients. Our local suppliers are some of the most exciting and inspiring artisan producers out there! Kent’s distinctive character and unique combination of agricultural farmland, ancient orchards, newly planted vineyards and history of hop growing, all within casting distance of the sea, means THE PIG-at Bridge Place has access to some of the freshest local fish, locally brewed beers, amazing meats, delicious fruit and award-winning English wines in the country!
We are taking bookings from Tuesday 30th April.
