Harden's says

The first of the three new Pig hotels opened in the village of Bridge near Canterbury in Spring 2019, located within a Grade II-listed, 17th-century manor house dating back to 1638. A newly built Coach House features a conservatory restaurant with open kitchen and 12 more bedrooms, while a converted barn houses the Kitchen Larder which offers wood-fired cooking. An additional restored lodge provides two bedrooms. Like the other Pig hotels, the restaurant here serves locally sourced ingredients from the kitchen garden and farms within a 25 mile radius.

In the rolling South Downs, the latest in the litter of Pig hotels is “a beautiful house in tranquil gardens” in prime wine-making country, with the fruits of its own vines set to join the menu before too long – as befits chain founder Robin Hutson's days as Hotel du Vin co-owner. “Clearly Pig-stamped”, the “beautiful old property” offers “just a great experience” orchestrated by “obliging staff” – reporters “love the local sourcing” which plays into variously “OK” to “delicious” food.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

The venisonn carpaccio was very good as was...
Reviewed 6 months, 2 days ago

"The venisonn carpaccio was very good as was my husbands steak but the lamb was full of large lumps of gristle. Service was very slow, empty plates not cleared for a long time, long wait for order to be taken. Didn't particularly understaffed just disorganised. Will visit a 2nd time before finally writing it off"
