Very good ploughmans

Friendly waitresses. Nice food - big portions though! Good wine. No cocktail ingredients left, which was a bit of a disappointment though. Central location in Ashbourne. Would recommend.

Called in for a family lunch. The outside is quite deceiving with the place bigger inside than it appears at first sight. We had a warm welcome and a good choice of home made food. Service was prompt and friendly. Would definitely visit again if we visit the town again.

We went to this place on the back of other reviews, it is just another cafe/restaurant, nicely decorated but the food is pretty average and the service wasn't particularly friendly. A little disappointed.

A lovely warm welcome. The service was friendly, competent and nothing was too much trouble. We all enjoyed our meals thoroughly...the homemade chips are possibly the best we have ever tasted.

called in here for a drink before we dined else where. Enjoyed sitting in The Courtyard but felt that our round of drinks was a little dear, very doubtful that we shall visit again.

We decided to have our wedding reception here as we have always had excellent food and service. This is a decision we did not regret. Claire the owners wife gave up a family trip to see every thing ran smoothly, it did. The staff were superb and our 26 guests had a great time. The food and drink was excellent... More

The service was 1st class, everyone got what they ordered and everyone got their meals together. The food was absolutely delicious and nothing was too much trouble...Would definitely recommend The Bridge for either an... More

We returned to Ashbourne after travelling up to Loughborough University for my son's graduation. I had promised the family that we would stay in Ashbourne after the graduation, and we all agreed to return to the Bridge as we had such a nice time before. I booked in advance via email, and everything was ready for us when we arrived,... More
