My wife, daughter and I drove through Waterbeach last Saturday and thought we'd drop in at The Bridge. We have been many times before, under old and new management, with mixed experiences. Unfortunately: 1. My wife's burger was burnt; 2. My food was lukewarm; and 3. The last bit of steak was inedible, consisting entirely of fat and gristle. The... More

We were excited to visit this pub venue as it had been recommended. It was a warm evening, so we chose to sit outside on the patio. The large number of inside tables were busy with customers waiting at the service point for vacancies. There is full table service inside but patio tables had to order and pay at the... More

We had our son's and daughter in law's wedding rehearsal dinner here last Friday. As we were a big group we were worried about how they would cope. I have to say that everything went really well and the service by Ben was just great.. Well done everyone at The Bridge and thanks for a marvellous evening

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Bridge last Friday evening with 32 attendants. Although it was a Friday evening, there was no hesitation in serving us. I had everything pre-ordered a week before the evening. The service was absolutely incredible. Ben served all attendants and was an incredible server. Very friendly and willing to assist where needed. Everyone... More

I went to this pub really excited as I went ones before just for a beer and I liked the atmosphere and the garden next to the river. I proposed to some of my friends to go there for a lunch one sunny day. The garden and the atmosphere is the ONLY good thing of the pub! The services is... More

This pub has the perfect location to do something really special as its setting it beautiful right by the river but it seemed from the moment we walked in that we were following a set of rules that we'd get in trouble for breaking! First off there were not tables on the courtyard but there were plenty of tables 5... More

To put you in the picture, I am a home cook, I am no chef and don't claim to be, but after tonight my other half would rather have eaten at home! We love food, good food, but are certainly not snobbish about it, I am a woman that will eat a fish finger sandwich with the best of them!... More

I use this pub restaurant quite often as the setting is lovely by the river. The pub itself is large but has a nice cosy atmosphere. Food is served all day and the choice is excellent - everything from sandwiches and sharing platters to main courses, puddings and cheese. It usually ticks all the boxes until yesterday ......... Our farmhouse... More

I have been to the bridge before, a long while ago and thought it was great so I tried it again.. We sat outside, where they have no table service - this tends to be fine, as long as someone is keeping an eye on when to clear plates etc.. they were not. We ordered our food, and our starters...
