I have visited the bridge today with my boyfriend for sunday lunch. We opted for the set sunday lunch which 3 courses for £22 we thought was a good price. The menu had a nice balance and catered for all tastes. I chose the calamari as a starter and it was delicious . The squid was cooked perfectly and was... More

We spent a weekend in the Malverns with friends and the reviews looked good, so we gave the Bridge a try. Although they were busy the staff were attentive and excellent at picking up when we needed something, unlike other restuarants we have visited where the waiters and waitresses seem to have blinkers on and stare firmly ahead. The food... More

I have read the poor reviews that are amongst the excellent ones. Maybe expectations are too high or service was poor on the night. However we enjoyed a wonderful evening on the deck on a warm and beautiful evening. The food is not gastro pub prices but a little above. However if you are sticking to a budget maybe drink... More

Dined here whilst on a boating holiday as The Bridge is located alongside the River Avon. Beautiful views from the outdoor terrace overlooking the river and the manager also allowed us to bring our well-behaved dog too which many places don't. The food was outstanding and the service excellent .....we couldn't fault this place at all !!

First of all a fantastic location by the side of the Avon. Lovely terrace which, despite the unpredictable July weather, we were able to lunch out on (the waitress thought we were mad!) Service was good, efficient and attentive. Food - excellent; fresh and well presented. My only slight reservation was the pricing. This is not pub food prices but... More

Seasoning! Where was it? No one checked to see how things were? Unable to cope with the numbers! Sadly the lack of seasoning let down an otherwise good meal. Why are chefs so anxious about seasoning? No one seemed to care - no check on how were doing, no apology for having to wait to order and then wait for... More

Had an excellent meal here with friends on a Saturday evening. All the dishes were done with great care, and therefore a cut above typical gastro-pub fare. Slightly more expensive, but definitely worth it. A nice atmosphere, even though it was a rainy evening and we couldn't sit out on the terrace. Fennel and smoked haddock pot for starter, and... More

Bank holiday lunch. Sat on the terrace as we had our dog. Great views over the river. Olives with warm bread, chicken with sun lush tomatoes and olive mash, husband had fish and chips, then we shared a coffee cheesecake with coffee ice cream. Brilliant. Nice glass of white wine - hard to find a better way to chill. Lots... More

This was the only place we could eat on the Saturday evening in Bidford apart from the Indian restaurant, it was excellent, especially the lamb. Quite pricey but delicious quality.
