“Better than it looks”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

An unremarkable white painted restaurant on the side of the A49 just south of Shrewsbury, the Bridge impresses once inside. The interior is bright and modern, though not too trendy, with wood floors and white-painted walls. The friendly and welcoming staff were happy to explain the menu, which included a few less common items. (The sausage and mash was very good.) Service was attentive without being intrusive.

The menu did seem a little pricey but we took advantage of the two-for one deals. We went on a Monday; these might not be around at the weekend.

Overall, if you’re looking for something a step up from pub grub, the Bridge Inn is worth trying.

“WELL WORTH A VISIT”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

They say don't '' judge a book by its cover '' this looks quite like an ordinary from the outside but when you step inside its very modern interior, bar, restaurant and gardens are a pleasant surprise. Its menu is good and great value for money. The staff are excellent, a smile and a warm welcome on entry and service throughout our meal could'nt be faulted.

Thank you Tania. Every restaurant should have one.

“Good Value Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We called into The Bridge Inn on the way back from a weekend in Wales. We had Sunday Lunch which was nice but not special. It was served very quickly and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a selection of roasts but unfortunately no med rare beef only well done. We all had homemade crumble and custard for pudding. The bar has quite unusual modern decoration but it is done well, giving a nice atmosphere.

“Great value for money for Sunday Lunch with excellently cooked food.”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

First time visit for the Sunday Lunch Menu, started well with a good welcome and a pint of Jennings Cumberland Ale. Instead of the usual Sunday lunch pub meal expected at any local pub, this was something extra. Good choice menu with variety of starters, mains and sweets. We ordered the Beef main course and were pleasantly surprised with the chef's presentation and I have to say the Beef was very plentiful, cooked to perfection and just melted in the mouth. Certainly the best Sunday Lunch meal ever for the money. Good friendly service, decor fresh and bright. Three courses each, one medium glass wine, one real ale came to £40 with 10% tip.
We will certainly be back and intend to sample the midweek meals soon. On our way out we saw the outside seating area which looked great for sunny evening pints.
To sum up - the ample car parking soon filled with customers who obviously come back regularly - this place deserves to do well.

“Sunday Lunch Review”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I went here for a family sunday lunch. The service was friendly and attentive, and each course was served quickly. The three course deal is great value for money and there were no problems with the meals. This is not am exciting gastropub for foodies (there are plently of places in the Ludlow area if this is the type of experince you're looking for), but it is a nice place to have a good family meal. There are several large tables in the dining room so would be suitable for larger groups.
