The Folly

Our derelict chic hideaway tucked in the garden

JKE 8242 Folly

​Drop-in rustic dining

The Folly is our hideaway tucked away in the gardens, created with drop-in drinking and dining in mind. It has stripped back walls, floor to ceiling windows, is full of reclaimed furniture and materials and has a flagstone terrace with views that are hard to beat!  

With the Kitchen Garden just there, you can eat what you can see; an all-day dining menu serving wood-fired and daily harvest dishes alongside English fizz and wine, local ales and cocktails as well as home-brewed kombucha and fresh juices.

Turn up when suits you, there is no need to book! The Folly is open come rain or shine, and there is a log burning stove for those chiller days.

As always, seating will be on a first-come first-served basis. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers will be limited. 

Open daily - rain or shine

You do not need to book The Folly, just turn up and tuck in! Please note, we can get very busy and seating is on a first come first served basis, but you are welcome to have a wander around the Kitchen Garden if you are waiting!

We do not permit dogs inside THE PIG-at Bridge Place. As the restaurant terrace and wood-oven are located within the Kitchen Garden, unfortunately, your furry friends will not be able to join you for lunch in the gardens.

Children are more than welcome at THE PIG-at Bridge Place, both in the restaurant and to stay. At THE PIG-at Bridge Place, some of our rooms are suitable for an extra bed or cot, just ask us when booking and we can arrange this for you upon your arrival.

Unless we are running a special deal and it is stated within the terms, all of our rates are on a room only basis so are inclusive of VAT only. 

Breakfast will be served at guests’ tables in the restaurant, as sadly our much-loved PIG grazing breakfast tables are not viable with current guidelines. All of the goodies that were on the Breakfast table will now be available, along with our hot dishes on our new Breakfast menus. Prices range from £10-£17.

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. Due to current physical distancing guidelines, we are limiting capacity in the main hotel, so you might not be able to make the most of the lounges until you have checked in. The team will be on hand to help you when you arrive.

Check out is by 11am. We ask that you leave your room by this time, but please enjoy the surroundings all day. We can’t guarantee an early check-in or late check-out, but stick around and let us know your plans and we will try our best on the day. 

At THE PIG-at Bridge Place there is access to the grounds and the restaurant in the Coach House.
