Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was treated to supper there by my friends for my 70th birthday. Beautiful building and I am sure the grounds are lovely too but it was dark. Unfortunately I do not eat fish and nearly every dish was fish. It was very overpriced for what the meal was. Which worried me as my friends were paying. The chairs were very uncomfortable very hard and very straight up so if you have a bad back like me take a cushion. It was also very hot in there as the restaurant was absolutely packed but as it is a hotel it may have been guests as well. No ventilation to the point it was overbearing and enough to make anyone irritable. My friends had fish but all there was were three thin slices with two slices of pickled cucumber on their fish drizzled with something and nothing else. I ordered pork, only three meat dishes on the main menu Chicken, pork and Beef (steak) £45 for a small steak! I ordered potatoes and shared them with my friends as they had nothing else know it’s a chain so not sure if they all serve the same food. Maybe they should rename this one The Fish instead! I did feel bad for my friends as one friend was trying to also accommodate with another friend who is mainly a vegetarian but does eat fish but even then she is extremely particular no bones no head etc, as constantly tells you about the restaurants she goes too and they have the best dishes? Most staff were pleasant but the waiter who came to our table seemed irritated when I asked questions about the dishes. The pork came with mustard sauce but I don’t like mustard so the waiter said we can pour red wine sauce instead and I said what on Pork! In the end the sauce was fine. We went to a lounge for our deserts and coffee because they wanted to quickly clear the tables for breakfast for the residence. I would not recommend this restaurant. They need to open windows when it’s so packed even in winter. They also need new chairs too.

We were bought a gift voucher for our wedding and booked a 2 night stay at the pig at bridge place. We were given a room over looking the courtyard, woken at 5am by staff and deliveries arriving below our room, rude staff members who came across as inconvenienced when asking for additional drinks and bed/ pillows were highly uncomfortable. But would highly recommend the facial!

Yesterday we had the great pleasure of going to The Pig at Bridge Place, and I cannot stress enough it is very deserving of the excellent 5* review I am about to write. It was my husband's 80th Birthday Celebration lunch and from the minute we entered the hotel we received the most amazing 5* service. The young lady who checked us into the restaurant and showed us to our table, gave wonderful support to my husband who has mobility issues. On arrival at our table she immediately suggested that my husband would benefit from the use of a chair with arms, in a blink of an eye she returned with a very ‘comfy' chair much more suitable for my husband. The young waiter assigned to our table was simply superb, he was very knowledgeable about all dishes being offered on the menu. He was super attentive and an absolute star and no request we made was too much trouble. He was tremendous fun and really created a wonderful atmosphere for our special birthday cerebration. The food was absolutely superb, every dish we had was cooked to perfection and was simply fabulously outstanding. Our starters, main course and deserts were so succulent, so scrumptious and so delicious that not a morsel was left on our plates! The hotel very kindly supplied us with a plate of petitrrsweet treats at the end of our meal which had 'happy birthday' and candles in the centre. We live in the Midlands and this was our first visit to The Pig, I can confidently say, the wonderful reception, the excellent table service, the outstanding food cooked to perfection and the terrific relaxed atmosphere and not that big a hit on our pocket, makes it a certainty that we will visit again.

Great concept, successful renovation, helpful staff. I was happy with the smallest booked room. The breakfast/dining room is noisy when full; Harrison was great suggesting we could get our dessert in the lounge instead. Thank you very much.

We stayed in a hop picker’s hut which was really cosy with a bath, a loveseat and a log burner in the bedroom. The staff were all really friendly. The food in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was delicious. The feel of the place and the surrounding countryside was so relaxing. The parking was easy and there are electric car chargers. We really enjoyed our stay and we would definitely visit again.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel as a Christmas gift from our Daughter. This visit for us was amazing, with a lovely room, dinner and a first class breakfast. The place itself is lovely with amazing grounds plus a vegetable garden which they encourage you to look around and see all the vegetables that are grown and used in the restaurant. Our dinner was superb with very attentive staff offering their services for every thing that you might need, as was our breakfast. Overall our stay was superb and I wouldn’t hesitate to return for any special occasion in the future and I can’t praise the staff enough.

One night treat, dinner b&b in this luxury hotel. Lovely room 15 in the main house, view over fields, mezzanine bathroom up narrow twisting stairs with a large bath as well as an excellent strong shower. Very restful public rooms, friendly service, staff everywhere. Restaurant bustling, good atmosphere but lots of background noise. Limited menu, all local and cooked in the open kitchen. Husband was disappointed that the steak was only available in a double serving so he made do with venison meatballs. My scallops in saffron soup were superb, and the pork was generous and tasty. Breakfast next day was a cornucopia of delights, too many to mention. Overall a lovely treat with excellent service and well worth, in our view, paying the price.

Visited The Pig at Bridge Place for 1 night and we also had dinner in the restaurant. Really enjoyed our stay; the staff were friendly and attentive without being in-your-face, and our accommodation (Lodge 1) was wonderful; huge, really comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The food and service was fantastic, really great breakfast, we loved just relaxing in the lounge and bar. Yes, it is on the expensive side, but we had no complaints, and they offer some great winter deals which make it excellent value for money. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a relaxed, luxurious break in a rural setting.

It's a beautiful hotel and gorgeous grounds, we stayed in a lovely Hop Pickers’ Hut. Unfortunately, a couple of things let it down a bit. We booked to stay as it was my birthday and also our five-year anniversary. Arrival was lovely, and the staff was very accommodating. When shown to our room, we were told the fire was ready to go. Unfortunately, there were no firelighters, so we spent a long while trying to light it to no avail. I called to ask for someone to come and help; he was shocked we had no firelighters or kindle as such. He managed to get it going, but it went out pretty quickly after he left. Bit disappointing! For context, we're not absolute novices with a fire! Our biggest disappointment was dinner. It just wasn't that good at all. I appreciate that the food is locally grown, sourced, etc, but it wasn't good. It really felt like they'd cooked a lot of it and kept it under a heat lamp so it was ready to go out as quickly as possible; everything that was supposed to be crispy came out limp and tasteless. It genuinely felt like a real disservice to whoever spent all of their time growing the food we ate. Breakfast the next morning was a lot better; all of the locally sourced pastries, fruit, etc, were lovely.
