Fantastic meal! Highly recommended.

First stumbled upon the Bridge a few years ago with a friend after a walk on Hay Bluff. Although the restaurant was closed we were still offered a light meal, which was absolutely fantastic. This evening a party of 20+ visited for a family birthday. We couldn't have had a lovelier time. Difficult... read more

Great menu with very generous portions. Staff are very welcoming. Location is very picturesque. Only downside is that the kitchen is right at the entrance and so after a couple of hours all your clothes smell of cooking.

A local friend recommended this place for lunch on a sunny afternoon. Great location, sitting outdoors in the unspoilt surroundings. Full of rustic charm and very relaxed although staff were polite and service was very relaxed with no fuss. I ate whitebait with celeriac and home cooked chips on the side. Tasty food with no complaints from me. A great... More

We came to The Bridge Inn to stay in the campsite overnight, on our trip south. It was hard to find and almost deserted when we arrived. And we did begin to wonder!! However..... What a gem! We have just experienced a most amazing meal, in a wonderful location and served by a fabulous staff. My Belly Pork meal was... More

Always love to visit The Bridge and this was no exception. The weather added to the experience but the real high point was the sirloin steak. Cooked to perfection. Simply the best steak I have had in years. The service was a little slow and it didn't seem overly busy but I'd still return in a flash and advise you... More

Evening meal, partner had beef pie with mash and veg. Massive portion. I had seafood pancake with salad and hand cut chips. Massive crispy pancake....not much filling and burnt in parts. This was acknowledged in half price reduction for that meal. All said a lovely restaurant overlooking a river with quaint flower tubs adorning outside seating area. Would eat there... More

We were staying in a beautiful cottage nearby and only ventured out one evening and due to lots of fab reviews in the cottages visitors book choose to come here. It was dark and through lots of narrow lanes but we found it. The menu was varied but didn't prepare you for the wonderful meal that was placed in front... More
