We have eaten at The Bridge plenty of times since we moved into the area and liked our 'Italian pub' down the road. The pizza and pasta on offer is fine but the team need be much more welcoming and friendlier if they want to retain our custom.

I can't fault this pub.....well... one small thing...we visit the canals on our narrow boat within our family. The food is great but we don't want to spend £8.95 on a meal for our 4 kids under 11. A portion of chips would be perfect, not bread and balsamic. No offence to bread and balsamic, I love it!!!! A portion... More

Decided last minute to book a table. Had to wait a while to be seated as dining space limited but we were looked after by the owner and enjoyed a few drinks and conversation while we waited. The food was of a very high standard and the service very professional. I had the mixed mushroom risotto and it was superb... More

Visited with friends for a birthday meal and was not disappointed. For starters we ordered the garlic bread with cheese, which I really enjoyed and was a great start to the meal. Maybe a tad expensive at £5 when you compare it to the price of my lasagna at around £10. Either way the garlic bread was yummy. Our mains... More

Had an evening meal in this pretty pub in a nice location near the lock. The food is pasta or pizza. We both had pizza & they were excellent quality. Hot & tasty with generous fillings.

This review should really be split into two parts. Daytime - Excellent summer location for a drink by the canal if you happen to be heading along the canal or walking/cycling the towpath, or perhaps walking around the water park. Always busy outside if the sun is shining. Not really a place to go if you want afternoon pub grub... More

Visited The Bridge Inn 20/2/15. The food is excellent value with a very good menu. Superb choices of beer (2 real ales and Beer Moretti and Perroni). The place is decorated with Sicilian touches with a great atmosphere. Customer service a little cold but would definitely visit again.
