Had a great meal with the kids, very welcoming staff, great table service and really very good value for money. The restaurant is located at the back of the pub and is a really spacious dining area, suitable for families, couples and larger groups. We all really enjoyed the food. We had two 'pie minister' pies with chips, peas and... More

Stopped here for lunch to find it very disappointing. £4.50 for a baguette sandwich that isn't actually a baguette and is very small and tasteless. £2.50 for a portion of chips swimming in grease. Really wished we hadn't stopped here.

Popped into the pub for a light lunch on Sunday, we both opted for a sandwich and paid the extra to have a side of chips to accompany it. The sandwiches were both huge and lovely, also so well priced! For £6 each we could not fault it. Others around our table had ordered Sunday roasts which looked delicious. Our... More

We enjoyed the food and ambience at this wine bar. The outside area was really large. It was like a tardis as it was so busy by the bar we hadn't realised how far back the place went. Friendly staff and very good service.

34 of us went to the Bridge today for a birthday. The staff were very polite and helpful, the pub was very clean. We had a 3 course meal off the menu which has a wide variety to choose from at a reasonable price. We all had different things and the food came out very hot and nicely presented, from... More

We popped in for lunch today. Nice window seat... not the best view across the road but comfy couch. Ate pork role. Came with gravy, Apple sauce, a couple of roast potatoes and some crackling... lovely. Staff attentive and polite. Loos a bit basic.

Just been for Sunday Lunch again at The Bridge, I had the roast beef and my husband had pork. The quality of food is always consistently amazing and fantastic value. The meat is always beautifully tender and is the real deal. The vegetables come separately and include cauliflower and broccoli in cheese sauce with a side of mash potatoes and... More
