My wife and I have been using this Hotel Restaurant for some 45 years, primarily for "special occasions" and the entertaining of visiting family and friends. In all that time the quality of the food and service has been excellent+.

Went to celebrate a birthday with Sunday lunch. Excellent service with well trained ,polite and attentive staff. Starter good, Roast Pork with trimmings well presented and followed by a coffee poured over Ice Cream all very enjoyable. However you do not get this standard cheaply, it s a very upmarket venue .

We went for afternoon tea to find out booking had been messed up. We stayed for coffee and a cold drink which was just under £6. It was extremely hot inside I was very surprised to find there was no air conditioning. The staff were polite and quick to serve us. We probably wouldn't visit again and enjoyed our afternoon...

Dear Halyey G Just to say that we did not have a booking from you for tea (we have re-checked our records). So we can only assume you were one of many people who book tea at The Bridge Hotel, Thrapston, but then arrive at The Old Bridge (Huntingdon), assuming you have booked. We know this for sure as we...

This was put 4th visit to the Bridge. Unfortunately this recent one was as bad as the last! Firstly the good points: the service as usual was very good. The young staff are very smartly turned out and polite. Unfortunately they are let down by a bad chef! On our last visit before this one we had an awful steak... More

I'm surprised by the tone of your review 'Scubyboy.' When one of your party asked how the lamb was cooked, the order-taker did explain that it was 'medium'. If I can now explain further that it is simply the nature of a 'Barnsley Chop', as opposed to a regular lamb chop, that it will never be blush-red in the way... More

Moved from Cambridge to Huntingdon and found this great place for our weekly date night. Great service. Attention to detail - second to none. Very knowledgable. Delicious food. Duck is to die for. Good choice of wine. We will be back every week. Thank you

This place ticks all the right boxes! Friendly staff, great food, nice room, awesome shower!!! It also offers a good location and rooms with a view! Free wifi that actually works as well!! What more could a person ask for? Only down side is not having more time to enjoy the hotel and surrounding area. Definitely recommend The Old Bridge... More

Stayed here on business. Nice room. Evening meal was pricey. Breakfast good. Has an exclusive wine shop on site with price tag to match. Would recommend this hotel to couples and business. Not families.

Dinner and breakfast were of a very poor standard. Dinner menu looked wonderful, but was dreadful. The breakfast menu was basic to the point that the chef was incapable of producing a fried egg which had a runny yolk and the kipper was boil in the bag or repackaged frozen. I could go on!

My husband and i decided to celebrate our anniversary here, just for one night, we had stayed previously and had a great time. Telephoned to make the booking, and he asked about the rooms, and went on recommendation. When we arrived it was very very busy, just managed to find a seat outside, which was nice, as it was sunny,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A handsome, ivy-clad 18th century building, once a private bank, overlooking the River Ouse and yet right on the edge of the town centre. Its atmosphere balances that of a boutique townhouse hotel and a bustling, relaxed, traditional inn. 24 beautiful air-conditioned bedrooms with B&O televisons and luxurious bathrooms. Fine but informal restaurant, winner of AA award for best wine list in the UK in 2010. Also wine shop with 'enomatic' tasting machines, bar with real ales, and free wifi. ... more   less
