We wanted a nice place to sit out for lunch recently and after looking on Trip Advisor came up with this pub . It was a while since I had last visited and was not disappointed , it was a real bit of Italy in Burton! Great pizzas, pasta and calzone and Italian beer on draft ! The food came... More

Recently went to the bridge inn with a group of 15. Good was very tasty. Considering the size of the party all the food was cooked perfectly, hot and exactly as we ordered. Staff were all very friendly and David the manager even came to check the night was up to scratch. Some of the negatives in other reviews I... More

Had a lovely night at the Bridge for my hen party! Food was lovely and staff gifted us a bottle of wine to help celebrate! At the end of the evening the chef came over to make sure everything was good with our meals! Will defiantly return x

Poor food and grumpy staff no record of the booking and expensive for the quality, will not be going again especially with the new manager/ owner in residence.

Stopped overnight on the boat at relatively quiet mooring on the T&M canal (much of this stretch is dominated by noise from the A38) near Branston Water Park. Having read the recent reviews we thought we should try the Bridge Inn, and we weren't disappointed. Chef recommended the Cod Supreme, which was served with a 'smoking' sauce. It was beautifully...

Stopped our canal boat for the night next to this pub, and had a great evening there. Very friendly, relaxed staff, fabulous garlic bread, main meals delicious, attention given to presentation and flavours. A lovely evening.

Decided to go for dinner here as it is conveniently located right next to the canal where we could moor up over night. The starters were deliciously seasoned (finally somewhere hat doesn't skimp on garlic and salt/pepper on their bruschetta) and just the right size. Our main courses were delightful and it has been a while since I have had... More

Popped in with a friend early weekday evening. Tiny little restaurant which was very nearly full by 6.30 pm Delicious traditional Italian food served quickly by friendly young staff. No proper wine list available which was a disappointment . We shall keep an eye on this restaurant as I think they are working on improving it all round
