I live locally to this pub restaurant and have visited on many occasions through the years. A lovely setting by the river means it gets very busy on sunny days and that has always lead to chaos and rediculous waiting times in the past. On this occasion on a sunny Sunday afternoon I had a pleasant experience whilst taking my... More

We had a good meal which was fortunately subsidised by Clubcard vouchers as the prices are a little high. The Sunday trio roast was very nice but had no mash or boiled potatoes, no parsnips and you had to pay extra for a sausage wrapped in bacon. Rib and pulled pork combo very good. The Eton Mess is £5.49, it's... More

We have just experienced a very enjoyable meal at The Bridge on the outskirts of Waterbeach. A great pub/restaurant situated by the waterside, an ideal place for a night out, Sunday lunch or just a drink on a sunny day by the waters edge. The menu is very varied and if you still cannot find something you like there are... More

Food usually very good however tonight Service was a little slow and steak not great but James was a great waiter and offered us drinks on the house and made sure we left happy. Definitely go back because of James' great manner and welcoming attitude.

Just paid a visit to The Bridge, it's hard enough going in on your own as a singleton but to be totally ignored for 5 minutes is appalling. I stood there waiting to be seated as requested to be passed by numerous members of staff without so much as a hello and when the bar man looked at me and... More

Me and my husband visited today (only been once before). Drinks took a while to arrive and food was almost 1 hour wait. We was told before hand that there was a wait though. Anyway... Food was lovely and Couldn't fault the service (waitress called Zoe) she was very friendly, well worth the tip we gave her!

We went for lunch and sat outside. We ordered some mains and while waiting we saw one of the umbrellas fly out of the table and hit a lady, one man then came out and added an extra bit to the umbrella at the bottom which looks like the umbrellas weren't fitted correctly in, in the first place. One plate... More
