Simple food done well...

British Kitchen Garden food, true to the micro seasons and with a real focus on simple and fresh flavours. Our menus are driven by our Kitchen Gardens, changing by the day depending on what the forager supplies and what our kitchen garden team deems to be in perfect condition.

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!

Long Lazy Lunches

Initially we will be operating with a reduced number of tables in our restaurants to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, so we have opened up bookings throughout the afternoon so that you can enjoy long lazy summer lunches - our favourite kind!

Tables are now available to book everyday from midday until 4.30pm, so you can really settle in with a few bottles of rosé or bring the kids down for an early evening feast - we just advise you book in advance.

You can check in from 4pm at all of our properties, however, you’re more than welcome to arrive earlier to drop off your luggage and explore the gardens.
