The young waitress was friendly but it was soon obvious that she was not experienced nor trained for her job. I ordered a sirloin steak.... More

Used to come here previous years and it was always superb, Since the restaurant has gone into new ownership it has a much lower standard, We normally now go to lock 13 but since it was full we had to go here again, place had no atmosphere, Staff were all friendly except one male who preferred talking to other customers...

This restaurant has been taken over by a fantastic chef. Food reasonably priced.. Nothing too much hassle. He's a local Sallins guy just looking for a chance to improve the local business. Please ignore the previous posts. Good and bad and come and give this guy a go... You will not be disappointed

We arrived yesterday evening & there was only 2 tables of people eating and the rest of the pub was empty. We chose a seat, sat... More

Dropped into Bridgewater Inn for lunch on Saturday and glad I did - the food was delicious - had the spicy chicken wings to start, reasonably priced at €5.95 and then chicken caesar salad. Well worth €11.95 - big portion and everything on it was fresh and tasty. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend a visit. Will definitely... More

Really nice food and pleasant staff. Nice spot alongside the canal. You can see a range of barges moored there and take a trip with bargetrip.ie.
