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

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

Puzzled by last review , did Grizingraz stay in the bridge in Grinton ?. The bridge is very old , very unique , staff are interested in visitors and help with advice on fishing , walks , cycle routes and much much more. It's very popular with walkers as their dogs are welcome , the food is above the norm... More

B and B's are our preferred accommodation and we have stayed in many different types, from relaxed and/or quirky to posh and elegant. By far this was THE worst place I have ever stayed. To begin with there IS no reception; just a bar where we were greeted? by a somewhat harried employee who begrudgingly showed us to our room.... More

My partner and I spent 3 nights at the Bridge in May. The pub is very "dog friendly" so we also took along our pooch, Muppet. The three of us were made very welcome by all the staff. We counted almost 10 of them! It's a real team effort - and that's just one of the things that makes this... More

Visited The Bridge Inn for the first time yesterday with my husband and daughter and was greeted by a mega friendly Landlord Drew who regularly chatted with us throughout the evening and who my 4 year old found very entertaining :) The service was excellent and the food was really lovely. Would love to come back here again

We just dropped in for a quick lunch which was very tasty and obviously freshly cooked. There is a good selection of beers and wines. Friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Child and dog-friendly too. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Yes, it's a country Inn with excellent beers and pretty good food, the bar was very lively on Thursday night with the locals having a sing along - complete with guitars - and they weren't bad at all, mind you we had been on the great beers and were singing along very loudly :-) Friday was very busy with a...

We love this place. We have had Christmas Dinner here and it was without doubt one of the best we have had.We were in Grinton again this New Year and decided to book their New Years Eve meal and yet again it was excellent. This is a great traditional country pub that serves great food. It has a great atmosphere... More
