Although we have visited a few times and often have quite a wait for food it's always very good. Our last visit we sat in the restaurant and ordered two ribeye steaks cooked medium rare. Lots of places often get this request wrong either too rare or too well done but this place got it just right plus the meat... More

Great country pub. Well kept cask beer, traditional and characterful, no TVs (thank god!), dog friendly, no mobile phones (yay!) and great staff! Just great! -- especially when the locals folk musicians turn up!

Paid a couple of visits to this pub whilst walking in Swaledale. Made to feel welcome and enjoyed bar food and a Sunday lunch. Food ok although the beef a bit tough. There was a power cut during lunch, the waitress brought candles to our tables which made it very cosy. Great beer and good crack at the bar, didn't... More

i am sad to be writing such a negative review. The service was not great and the waiter had to be reminded to come and take our orders. When the food came the kids Bolognese was lukewarm and not very appetising. The kids chicken burger came without bread and the chicken was battered thicker than the chicken itself. The adults...

This was OK. Not especially good value as the hamburger was £12.95 - wow, and I am afraid I didn't believe it was home-made. Generally I find that if a place will not serve the burger pink, it's because the box it came in said not to do so.... Dessert of Apricot Treacle tart but heavy on pastry and probably... More

We stayed one night here to attend a great gig at the Reeth Memorial Hall. The pub was friendly with good beer and good food. It was a comfortable room and the breakfast was excellent with good quality food. Very welcoming of our dog and lent us a bowl for her as we had forgotten ours.

We ate there on Fri evening 8 Aug 2014. I ordered a veg casserole with a side order of chips. Well....when the meal arrived I would say it was definitely a childs portion. The waiter did ask if everything was ok with the meal...I replied that I did not feel the meal was value for money..to which he just turned... More

Having read previous positive reviews, the food at The Bridge Inn did not meet our expectations. We both had pies which were homemade. Unfortunately the fish pie filling was of a very thin milk consistency with very little fish. The pastry for both pies was very thin and biscuity. The steak pie filling was, however, good. The accompanying vegetables had... More

Booked a breakfast over a week before the event for 5 adults (men) following the end of a walking holiday. When we sat down we were informed that items on the menu were unavailable. There was clearly not enough starters of cereal, fruit juice and fruit portions for all the customers as some of us had to do without, (there... More

Visited The Bridge Inn as a treat for an evening meal while camping at nearby Grinton Youth Hostel. We had booked a table and the barmaid indicated that we should go to the waiting area (leather sofas) to wait for our table. We were given menus and ordered our food and then we waited a very long time. It was... More

andyswale, Owner at The Bridge Inn, responded to this review

Unfortunately during the week of the Tour de France due to the numbers expected we did resort to mass catering which did unfortunately lead to a temporary drop in the standard of food served. This was however reflected in the price but I must say I am happier now that we are back serving our usual menu. I apologise for... More
