We recently held our daughters wedding reception here and it was wonderful .To start with the proximity to the registry office was about 100 yards but that aside we had the upstairs dining area and a fabulous buffet laid on by chef ,It was for a party of around thirty and every single one of them remarked how lovely it...

We had our Christmas party at the Bridge and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and the service was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. There were 12 of us and the food arrived on time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered. We will definitely return next year. Would highly recommend it.

We had our Xmas party here last year and we had such a great time we returned again and wasn't disappointed! The staff are great and the food is delicious. It all comes out quickly too so you are all just about eating at the same time instead of waiting for that last meal to come out. The service is... More

Service not so friendly or professional. Coffee I have ordered was hardly drinkable (I'm a trained barista). Prawns in buter were under cooked, salad garnish not so fresh or appetizing. Music too laud, hard to make a conversation. Vegetarian burger was delicious. Good size and nicely presented on a wooden board.

15 of us went for our xmas party meal. We had a 3 course meal, with a range of different starters, mains and desserts. The food was beautiful, nothing was too much trouble. Frankie did an amazing job, also thanks to Karl, and a lovely big thank you to Claire who looked after us beautifully.

Husband and I were visitors to the town, chose this restaurant because it was busy and looked smart. We avoided the lower floor which was crowded and offered mainly stools to sit on. We went in the main restaurant which was quiet and nicely decorated for Christmas. The food was plentiful and hot. Carbonara was much too heavy on the... More

Xmas do - a total success. the staff couldn't have done more for us. The Christmas menu offered a great choice for all, and the food was delish (many said it wasn't like a normal do where it looks like the food was done on a production line and 'flung out' - it was as good as if there were...
