Fantastic refurb with efficient friendly staff

Visited the Bridge twice since the refurb and both visits were really enjoyable. The new decor is brighter with a fresh contempory feel with a cosy atmosphere. The staff are efficient and friendly the food was good quality and tasty.

The Bridge has had a makeover and reopened on Valentine's Day. We booked for an evening meal and arrived to find that the decor and lights had improved plus a change of management. We decided to use the standard menu rather than the special only because the four courses were not totally to our taste buds. We were shown to... More

It's a nice looking pub,that's a bit out of the way. There is potential for sure,plenty of room and decent layout,but everything is in slow motion,no urgency or organisation. We went as a group of 14 before Xmas and it was a drag. Saying that,the food was ok when it arrived,I just needed a shake to arrest me from my... More

Today we had lunch at the bridge and it was lovely. After reading bad reviews about the place we went there wiv a open mind and were pleasently surprised. Service and food was really good considering it was so busy. We would definitely eat there again.

It's not the first time I visit this place and neither the first time I write a review. My first visit to the pub last spring was awful and I wrote a review about it. Afterwards the manager department got in contact with me to speak about my visit and give me a compensation for it. I have to admit... More

Restaurant took this literally with food arrived 1hr later. Unfortunately food lukewarm and my sons £14 lamb looked like shrivelled cutlet.

This riverside pub may not be the place to go for the ultimate gastro experience - it is, after all, part of a chain with a typical pub grub menu. However, it is great for an informal Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings with ample parking. Having read previous reviews, I was nervous today about the possibility of part-frozen food and/...

We've eaten here twice at lunchtime when out in bike rides and found it to be fine. The food is better than Wetherspoons with more variety and interesting ingredients, nicer surroundings and the lunch menu prices are as competitive (£4.99 for fish and chips and peas; £6.99 for chicken burger and chips). We waited 35 minutes for our food today... More

Four words to describe Christmas lunch. Truly, truly, truly awful! If you cannot find anywhere else for Christmas Lunch my advice would be to go hungry.
