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.

The pub seems to be run by Italians and we ordered a pizza. It was really rapid service, and the pizza was absolutely delicious. It was very quiet for... More

Went there for an early evening meal and and thought that the place was nice but was disappointed with the food quality. Ordered 2 different pizzas but was really disappointed with what was brought out. The pizzas were ok bordering on bland. Really could do better with the ingredients and presentation and It would be a lovely place to visit... More

The Bridge in Branston is lovely old pub, very small but the space it utilized well. The decor is warm and in keeping with the age of the building, with an Italian twist. When the fire is burning, it is a lovely place to spend a winter evening. The menu is very well balanced with a good range of dishes... More
