Fabulous venue backing onto the Mill Pond!

Bridges Tavern is a great spot to go after a day out on the trail, on the water and or after work. Easy, fun, great ambiance - especially the back patio...and good food! The venue also brings in live music weekly. A must experience kind local eatery!!

The food was good, though a limited menu. Good kids menu. The waitress was helpful and lots of fun. The back patio area is wonderful....near water, fire pit, table tennis and a big open space for kids to run around and have fun. Unfortunately the service was slow.

On my annual visit to Thornbury my companions and I visited Bridges Tavern and I was amazed at the transformation made from its old incarnation by the present owners. Lots of outdoor space on decks of varying heights, fully furnished garden area surrounded by barbecue, fire pits and even a table tennis table, and the most awe-inspiring view over the... More

We thought we would drive to Bridges on a beautiful sunny afternoon for lunch with our young daughter. We have always loved Bridges - it is located in the most beautiful spot. It wasn't very busy. We waited for a very long time for drinks and menus. Menu didn't offer anything light or appealing for summer. Also, there is no... More

Check out the back patio...view is outstanding! I love any place on the water or with a view of the water and was pleasantly surprised. Service was great and staff came around often to check on us. I'll go back when I'm in the area again in two weeks

The exterior of Bridges looks inviting with it's beautiful patio and scenic waterfront views. However, looks can be deceiving. The food was below average, they have a dismal kids menu, and to top it off the service was painfully slow. We will not be back.

The setting **makes** this place. The outdoor dining area is immaculate and clearly set up for catered events, they have really out done themselves in that regard. The food was just slightly above average on price, but the quality doesn't ascend much further than "decent". Their top recommendations according to their menu: Philly Steak Egg Roles -- It's a neat... More

Lovely large outdoor patio. Menu included local ingredients. While they do have traditional pup grub they also offer a nice alternative to the norm. Good pricing. We will be visiting again.
