We arrived at 13.45 and ordered a pizza each they were huge portions and mine cost £8.95 the food arrived fast and was good. There were quite a few vegetarian options too. I also ordered a dessert and despite the kitchen closing at 2pm I was still served after. The two staff were chatty and helpful.

Lovely food. The food is Italian and although the menu does not change, there are a variety of specials on offer. Most of these are seafood. The dessert menu is limited but the beer is great.

Saturday lunch with my wife for a couple of pizzas. Welcome not overly friendly but polite, pub was quiet so we sat in pleasant garden by the canal. Pizzas arrived , not that impressed, the base was very thin and dry and it just tasted very bland. How can people compare them to pizzas in Italy! It's ran by Italians... More

We recently went to the Bridge for Sunday lunch, looking forward to a couple of tasty bowls of pasta. Dan the barman was as pleasant, friendly & polite as always. We had our pick of tables to choose from. We had a couple of perfectly chilled Peronis, with the bread to share for starters. We both ordered the same pasta... More

We decided to return for a Valentines treat and we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome from all of the staff who were extremely attentive from start to finish. After a well kept pint of Marstons Pedigree and a good Gin and tonic for my wife we both had the baked Aubergine with Ricotta special starter which was... More

We wanted a simple family meal after a long week. Easy to recommend The Bridge Inn for just such an occasion. The standard menu covers all the bases for piazza and pasta lovers. The specials over the bar are always a little different and good value. I had pizza, my wife had a pasta special and our son had his... More

I love this little canal side pub, or should I say Italian restaurant. It's just next to Branston Water Park and when I first found it, two years ago, I couldn't find it on Tripadvisor. I loved it then and I think the food is even better now. Genuine lasagna and a cut above the processed stuff so often served... More
