Could not fault the crispy salmon and mayonnaise potatoes. Airy premises and an open fire in the winter, it was when I was there. Excellent wine list and to too expensive. Staff were polite, funny, helpful and good company.

We loved the food, service and ambience. I enjoyed the fish and chips. My partner had the lamb shanks.

A wet winters day so where better for lunch than at the Bridgy! Had the seafood chowder with a big hunk of garlic bread and very nice and just enough. Good service, friendly staff, all that it usually is. Not the cheapest in the area but still good value for money. Will be back.

We have been visiting this restaurant and bar for a good few years, it's always a happy experience. A roaring fire in Winter cheerful friendly staff and a good standard of food.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat after travelling all day and we have to say that the roaring fire was a fantastic welcome, as were the friendly staff. As we weren't all that hungry we ordered entrees which were delivered quickly which was wonderful but we both felt that our meals could have a bit more heat... More

We were invited for lunch. Lovely setting, clean and tidy. Lunch menu very bland and uninspiring. I chose a meat lovers pizza - no mention of tomato base on menu - I am allergic to tomatoes - arrived with tomato puree base, was very light on meat, over cooked. BLAH! Partner ordered seafood chowder - large shallow plate arrived with... More

Extensive bar and dining area. Lots of TV screens for sports fanatics. Good choice of beers on tap (although mostly DB products and no guest taps). The dining menu is very extensive (we ate there for 5 nights in succession) and a great selection of Entrees and Mains. The meal presentation was great and portions were healthy sized. Fish was...

Very basic noisy rooms and expensive drink. We had to eat there although the menu seemed very overpriced but there was nowhere else open on a Tuesday night. It was basic food at a high price. Wouldn't stay or eat there again.

Our order for our mains was completely forgotten by the waiters staff, after waiting for 45 minutes still no main. The entrees were Food wise quite average, nothing special. Our friends were really embarrassed with such a bad service and just a " so sorry" from the manager. Wouldn't recommend this place at all. And the music is terrible as... More
