Welcome to THE PIG-at Bridge Place
Just 56 minutes by train from central London, tucked away just outside the historic village of Bridge, three miles south of Canterbury, explore our Kentish member of the litter, a red-bricked musical honeypot.
An intriguing old building with a rock-n-roll vibe, which over the past four decades has been home to some renowned parties and gigs playing host in the ‘70s to Led Zeppelin and the like.
It houses lots of period features, including large fireplaces, secret stairways, panelled rooms and endless nooks and crannies. In the refurb, all of these structural nuances are being respected and enhanced to create seven bedrooms along with numerous cosy bars and sitting areas.
A love of good food
The Coach House is home to the restaurant, filled with signature PIG touches but feeling markedly different to its sister restaurants with a kitchen that opens-up into the space, letting you in on the action.
The Big Outdoor Lunch
12th April – 16th May, 12pm-4.30pm
THE PIG’s open-air, all weather spring shindig serving a simple 25-mile menu.
THE PIG is back from 12th April just in time for some spring outdoor eating! Expect spring harvest Kitchen Garden veggies and salads, meats from our local farmers and fish fresh from nearby ports rounded off with a classic pud – all designed to be enjoyed outside, accompanied by a bottle!
Stay with us
With far reaching views out across the Kentish countryside, all bedrooms are finished in our signature style, but with some exciting new additions. There are 7 characterful bedrooms in the main house, 12 light and spacious rooms in the Coach House, 2 family friendly lodges; and The Barn, a rustic romantic two-storey hideaway in the old stables.
Additionally, 7 Kentish Hop Pickers’ Huts on stilts sit alongside the river in the grounds, each has been made from reclaimed materials and has a double-bedroom with fitted bathroom and wood burning stove.

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. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers will be limited.
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.
We offer monetary vouchers, as well as a lunch, dinner and treatment vouchers. These can be purchased here.
We have extended the validity of all Gift Vouchers that are due to expire in 2021, to now expire on 31st December 2021, so that you still have an opportunity to use them at THE PIGs.

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.
