“An Old Portsmouth Favourite”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This pub is frequented relatively regularly by my husband and I because we love the location and atmosphere here whether it be on a glorious summers day or in the depths of winter, The Bridge Tavern is well worth a visit.

The food is great with excellent portion sizes and better value for money than many of the other pubs in the area. There is often a wait during peak times, however more often than not, the time you are told is rarely the reality of how long it takes to get your food, it is normally quicker than they say.

The bar service is a little slow but the staff are very pleasant and well mannered.

We will continue to come here for many more years to come.

“Lunch for 6”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

6 of us went for a late Sunday lunch yesterday. A notice on the bar said there was a 40 mins wait for food! Fortunately for us we only waited 20 mins. The food was reasonable, except for the hard parsnips. Service OK.
Not sure if we'd return
