Serious waste of money, this place makes McDonald's look like a Michelin restaurant. Fantastic location but that's all it has got going for it. . And for gods sake will someone please clear the tables ! ! Will never ever ever visit again

We arrived early, only one other couple in the dining area. We got our drinks and sat at the table, read the menus, the waitress came and took our order, we both opted for the whitebait, it was delivered in plant pots, with a very thick tartare sauce, the whitebait was over cooked. Which spoilt it for us. I chose... More

Had previously looked on internet and saw that they did 2 courses for £12 after 4pm on Mon - Thursday and when... More

I've been to this pub a few times over the past 5 or so years, but in recently years there has been a rapid decline in standards. Today was the last straw. Turned up for an early lunch after a nice walk down the river. I ordered a burger topped with BBQ pulled pork. Far below par, particularly given the... More

Living locally we have used The Bridge on several occasions. Can be rather hit and miss but is missing all the time now. Saturday lunchtime. Food ordered at the bar and drinks out on the patio. 45 minutes later no food. Went back in and asked the manager to see what was happening - despite assuring me he was "on... More

We went for an early dinner today at The Bridge. The setting, venue and staff were pleasant and approachable. However, their food let them down. We ordered a Lemon, Pea, & Mint Risotto and the Chicken Kiev. The risotto portion was so small that it seemed the size of a starter, when we raised our concerns the waitress told us... More

After failing to get into the Plough @ Fen Ditton we found ourselves here on a hot summers day and the visit started well, shown to a table by a rotund northern gentleman who was friendly and welcoming. It all went a bit wrong after that. The table was dirty, the cutlery was dirty, the food was bad. So very... More
