Been here a few times times now and have enjoyed every meal I have had here. The staff are very knowledgeable about the food on the menu and the service is very good. Been in small and larger parties and each time I have been very impressed overall.

We had lunch here today and sadly overall it was a very uninspiring experience. After waiting 25 minutes from our order being taken we asked about the delay and our food was suddenly ready in a few minutes. The food itself was OK, but is that about as far I would. Very average food. We were going to have a... More

Lived in Gamston until 2012 and was not a big fan when this place was The Bridge but I like this reincarnation since the rebuild. Place looks great, food was very good if a little pricey and staff very attentive. Would recommend it over The Goose.

Super pub/restaurant, plenty of parking, outside areas for children, seating etc. Well laid out interior with bar, children friendly area and (adult spaces). All new following the disastrous fire a little time ago. Typical comprehensive pub menu with attractive daily specials. Good attentive service from Anne. Food arrived promptly and hot. Coffee to finish after good food portions.

Food was nice, service good. The only things that irritated me were when I asked for the breakfast menu I was told 'we don't do breakfast' I said 'I've just this minute been on your website and there's a breakfast menu' only to be told once again 'we don't do breakfast here' no explanation offered as to why - so...

Managed a large group well, Food and Service Excellent. Spacious interior and I noticed they have a lovely children's play area. We went for dinner but it would be a nice pub for family lunch.

On the recommendation of a friend we decided to check out this pub which we had passed by previously in favour of one nearby. It was well worth a visit for not only did it provide a wide range of dishes, but the staff were more than helpful, and the atmosphere was cosy and warm with subdued background music. We... More
