Just taken advantage of the two for one pizza offer. Ordered a Bridge Inn special and a prosciutto. Ready to collect in 20 minutes. Nice size, thin base pizza. Just the right amount of topping. Bargain at just under £10. Much better than other local pizza takeaway.

This place is something of a hidden gem. It recently changed hands (no doubt Marston's increased the rent since it became popular for food, with low beer sales) but the menu has remained largely unchanged (a few more 'specials' have been added). That said, the highlights are the pizzas. Staff are always great and we feel comfortable bringing young kids... More

We visited on a very busy Saturday evening (definitely book!). The pub/bistro is cosy although there is quite a bit of noise so in a large group you cant all hear each other. Of course this is also known as a buzzing atmosphere. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious although my husband thought his pizza may... More

I hadn't been since ownership changed. I would definitely go again. Food still great. Lovely menu choices and staff/service excellent. I have always loved the cosy atmosphere in this little place so I was glad to know it's still a great little pub under new ownership.

Having read the good reviews on here, I thought I would give it a try for a birthday meal with my friend. Sadly I was not impressed at all. Although we were 10 minutes late, our table wasn’t ready and there was nowhere at all to sit whilst we waited. When we eventually got our seat, we had quite a... More

Really enjoyed the food when we visited recently, The only issue I have is that it looks like they are trying to squeeze as many tables in as possible which gives it a very cramped feeling which I am not a fan of. Food was delicious and the staff were excellent.
