We had a lovely family meal there last night to celebrate our son's birthday. The setting and service were second to none, attentive and friendly, but, also professional and not pushy. We sat inside on the first floor, but would love to return on a warm summer's evening to sit outside on the beautiful terrace looking over the river. Adventurous... More

Just eaten in the Bridge for the second time this year, this time with my brother and parents for my fiance's birthday. Once again the food and service was first class. My fiance and I shared the baked Camembert for starters and I had the lamb which was cooked to perfection. Comfortably one of the best meals I've had for... More

My Wife and I were taken there by a friend of ours. The food was outstanding, the atmosphere cordial and very friendly. Not hurried and the staff went out of their way to help. Been there a few times since and cant say a bad word. Excellent every time.

Another wonderful meal at this gem of a restaurant ! It's next to the old bridge in Bidford-on-Avon and their Bank Holiday Brunch is fantastic value for money with quality produce expertly cooked. There are riverside balconies for fine weather but even on a very wet bank holiday the views from the windows of the boats passing by make it... More

We have been coming here for years. It never fails to impress and sometimes if we go somewhere else new and are disappointed we always say "we should have gone to the bridge!"

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 !!
