“Excellent authentic Italian food - great atmosphere and outstanding staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The bridge inn is a fantastic family friendly restaurant - we have eaten here several times and are always warmly welcomed by the owner and served fantastic food.

The food is of excellent and reminds us of our holidays in Italy. My personal favourite is the spaghetti with meatballs.

“Fantastico!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Was on a Narrow Boat holiday and stopped here for lunch, not really expecting much - we were a few minutes before kitchen closing time but it seemed that it was not a problem to stay and serve us. We did not want to take advantage so we had a past dish each - and what pasta! Well cooked, tasty sauces and piping hot - went back to our boat and decided to stay the afternoon and went back for dinner in the evening - what else can I say! Definitely on my list of recommendations now.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Had dinner with friends here on Friday evening. The starters of antipasti, olives and bread were delicious, however we were all very disappointed with our main course. Meatballs without any sauce, a Pizza that was barely cooked, a carbonara, again dry and a Cannelloni that was OK. The Manager was apologetic. The beer and Italian wines by the glass however were excellent. The restaurant itself if very pleasant, the waiting staff friendly. If we were to go again, we would just do plenty of antipasti and a bottle of wine.

“Absolutely Fab service & top quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I have been going to The Bridge for a couple of years now when visiting family in Barton and coming up for the weekend from London. Firstly in response to another review on here... £10 is not expensive for a freshly made pizza and your average take away pizza costs more than this. Top notch London restaurants do not charge less than this.
The food at The Bridge is fresh, well made and always of a high standard. Service is prompt.
The atmosphere is lovely and in the winter the fire creates an extra ambience and the staff are always friendly and attentive.
I would strongly recommend the Spaghetti Carbonara and the white profiteroles are to die for.
If you are looking for some where to wine, dine or just relax, this is the place. I visit a lot of pubs, restaurants and bars on a daily basis through working in the drinks industry and I would highly recommend this to all of my customers when in the area.
