We love this pub. It's the best by far in Avimore. We have visited regularly on 3 separate holidays and always receive a warm welcome. The food looks great although we've never eaten. The best bit is the open fire and the fact that it is dog friendly. This is great for us as Avimore is remarkably dog unfriendly!!!

Very enjoyable meal. Just like a number of venues in the area the prices are high compared to similar places in larger towns.

Great pub and good food. I loved being able to sit across the road at the picnic tables. I even got served at the picnic tables. Quite spot away from the hustle and bustle.

As of December 2015 The Bridge Inn will be closed for drying-out and refurbishment. Just one of the problems of such a delightful riverside location, Check for re-opening in 2916. Food will be to the usual high standard and the music will play again.

I have wanted to visit this restaurant for ages and when I finally did I was sadly disappointed. The service was OK but nothing special and I found that our waiter had a bit of an attitude bordering rudeness.The black pudding starter was nice although I found it was a bit salty. However the crusted cod was slimy and the... More

Great food and service, background music was really good but the menu was a little restricted and a little pricey. Would recommend though and will be back soon.

This place is amazing! Big warm fire, superb staff and dog friendly. The food is classy restaurant standards, mouth watering and not bad value in comparison to horrible places like the Highlander Hotel

Had 2 consecutive dinners in November whilst staying in the self catering lodges. Venison was fabulous the first night - very tender. Good choice of starters and sweets. 2nd night we had sea bream - lovely flavour and very moist. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely eat at The Old Bridge Inn next time. Good atmosphere too, and very... More

Went in Late November for dinner with my wife. I have been a few times before, and never disappointed. Yet again the food was excellent (despite the menu being a bit restrictive for my taste), and the service was its usual friendly, cheery and welcoming excellence. The food when delivered, again was excellent and up to the usual standard -... More
