Kitchen Garden tipples, classic cocktails and English wines in our cosy panelled Bar.
Discover our tipples from garden to glass...
Whether you’re joining us first thing for a Garden Bloody Mary pick-me-up or a late nightcap, we will smash, muddle, blend, shake and throw our way to making you your perfect drink. All of our cocktails are designed with the Kitchen Garden in mind. Our Head Kitchen Gardener at THE PIG-on the beach provides all of the essential ingredients to infuse our Chase Distillery Spirits with. Like our restaurant, our aim is to provide high-quality products in the most sustainable, local and resourceful way possible.
No need to book!
Just drop by for a tipple or two in our bar lounge or outside on the terrace. Why not order some Piggy Bits whilst you're at it?
Please be aware that due to physical distancing we will be running at a limited capacity and seating will be on a first come first served basis.
A taste of Dorset
We are lucky to have some award-winning and high-quality breweries and distilleries on our Dorset doorstep, so you can be sure what is being poured is the best around and produced locally.

Garden infusions with Chase Distillery
Head to the bar in any of our PIGs, and you’ll notice our eclectic collections of botanical-infused vodkas with all sorts of garden pickings including Rosemary, Thyme, Basil, Horseradish, Cucumber, Strawberry and Pelagonium! The teams behind the bar at THE PIG are the curators of these diverse concoctions, made with herbs and flavours sourced from our kitchen gardens when they’re at their absolute best.
Garden to glass cocktails
We like to make the most out of our Kitchen Garden ingredients at THE PIG-on the beach by bringing the garden to your glass... you won't find a bar around quite like ours.
Our Bar Team work with our Kitchen Gardeners to bring in ingredients to experiment with straight from our plot, so you can sip on something truly unique like Basil, infused vodka, Garden chillies infused rum or Kaffir lime infused gin.

However, it’s worth checking out our other properties as we may have rooms or tables available elsewhere.
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.
We’ll never tell you what to wear. Our restaurants are informal places, so come in whatever makes you happy and comfortable.

Just drop in for some relaxed sunshine dining and a glass of something chilled. As always, seating will be on a first come first served basis.

During August and September our restaurant has been extended out onto our terrace to allow for physical distancing in line with Government guidance. You will still be able to join us for drop in dining at our wood-ovens, but please note this is weather dependent and wood-oven sittings will not be able to be accommodated inside due to capacity. We strongly advise checking in with your chosen PIG before visiting if the weather is on the wetter side to see if we are open to avoid disappointment.
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.

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.

The team will be on hand to help you when you arrive.

Gorgeous views & stunning beaches. A 23 bedroom mellow country house perfectly situated along Studland Bay.
THE PIG-on the beach
If you’re staying longer than a night or two, a car’s handy for exploring. Less than three hours from London, the Studland Bay peninsula is best reached via the car ferry across the mouth of Poole harbour. You can also reach Studland without using the ferry by following the B3351 down towards Swanage. In the summer roads can become congested with holidaymakers so please allow delays in your journey (but it's worth the effort). There's a free on-site car park for hotel guests.
A train from central London takes around two hours. The closest station is Wareham, on South West Trains' London Waterloo–Weymouth line, about 20 minutes' drive from the hotel; it has connections to Poole, Southampton, Sussex, Wales and beyond.
Excel Taxis are a local taxi service and always on hand to get you where you need to be! Give them a call on 01929 448066 if you're needing a lift to our house.
If you're needing to be within close proximity to an airport, Bournemouth Airport is 27 miles away and it takes around an hour to get there by car.
