The Bridge Inn has been a place we have visited many times over the past twenty five years
and we have seen the standard go up and down.
This is to be expected as chefs come and chefs go.
Last night a group of us attended for a birthday celebration for my daughter in law,
six of us in all.
The first, tiny annoyance was the size of the table,
not much room to get our food on here and there was so much clutter.
Side plates, wine glasses Menus, flyers for Christmas yet no knives and forks.
When the drinks arrived there was no room at all
so we started to move things we didn't need onto the bar,
just to make some elbow room.
We are not the type to complain for trivial stuff so we carried on and placed our orders.
Chips and peas or Veg and potatoes?
Birthday girl... "may I ask for veg with chips as I don't like peas"?
Waitress.. "No we don't do that".
Space between tables was small and we were all bumped many times by passing staff.
We didn't have starters But when the mains came We all tucked in happily asking each other,
"is it nice"? Lots of nods and smiles.
By the end of the main meal I had to speak up, but only to my friends and family.
It's a schoolboy error to serve chips that have all been cut to different sizes
making some nice but most hard and burnt.
Paying £25 for plate of food, you expect better than this.
Then the Sweets
Birthday girl.. "can I have cream instead of ice cream"?
Yes... It came with ice cream.
A waiter brought cream but the dessert was not the one she ordered.
"she doesn't like lemon tart"!
I am angry by now.
Clearing the table a waitress almost spilled water of My daughter in law and it was only her quick
reactions that saved herself from a soaking.
The bill for six of us was over £160.
A lot of small errors and little things made for an evening spoiled.
We payed up and smiled like the English do.
We wont be back.
