This is a small inn that aspires to be a hotel, and a pub that aspires to be a restaurant. We stayed only for one night after a day of traveling. It was chosen strictly for its location, which was excellent. The outside has all the charm sought by most travelers, including the moggie who climbed down from the roof... More

I have just returned from a 3 night stay with my Mum. The Bridge is very conveniently located with Swaledale with some great walks right on the doorstep. The Bridge serves absolutely excellent home cooked food, enormous portions making for great value for money. The breakfast consisted of a very wide choice including full English and even smoked haddock or... More

We found ourselves passing by mid-April so we stopped for a cuppa. It was a Sat lunchtime and the pub was humming but the landlord/barman was not harrassed and was very pleasant. Lovely cup of coffee with a home-made shortbread. It was lovely sitting out on one of the picnic benches, out the front, and watching the world go by... More

A group of 19 of us had meals on 2 consecutive nights. Great menu selection, we pre-ordered which made things easier. All food was excellent and we were all served together and on time. Great beers and atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. Don't bother trying anywhere else, this is the best pub in the area.

The Bridge is a traditional old Dales pub situated in the tiny village of Grinton in Swaledale. We stayed in Room 1 as a twin which is situated directly above the kitchen so the noise of the fans and food preparation has to be lived with for much of the day and sometimes into the night. The room is very... More

Visited here about twenty years ago and had gammon and eggs, one of the finest meals I have had!! Decided, as we were in the area, to revisit. This time I had their fish and chips and the 'er indoors took on the gammon. I have to say the quality was the same, the service exceptional (the lad that served... More

A friendly, cosy pub. Visited a few times on holiday and there was always a good selection of beer, which where all very well kept. The veggie burger I had was excellent as was the Risotto my daughter had. Proper food for veggies, not a vegetable lasagna in sight!!

Always stay when visiting Copley Décor in Leyburn. War, friendly establishment bursting with character. Nice selection of ales and the rest! Had my usual steak and ale pie to see how theirs compared. It did! Smoked salmon and crab salad was lovely as was the full English breakfast next morning. Must take the wife there for a weekend.

Like a previous reviewer, we love this pub. We've been visiting this part of the Dales for 15 years now and can honestly say this pub has the best kept beer in Swaledale for a good few years. The food is consistently good and value for money when compared with some other pubs in the dale that purport to be... More
