We visited on a very busy Saturday evening (definitely book!). The pub/bistro is cosy although there is quite a bit of noise so in a large group you cant all hear each other. Of course this is also known as a buzzing atmosphere. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious although my husband thought his pizza may... More

I hadn't been since ownership changed. I would definitely go again. Food still great. Lovely menu choices and staff/service excellent. I have always loved the cosy atmosphere in this little place so I was glad to know it's still a great little pub under new ownership.

Having read the good reviews on here, I thought I would give it a try for a birthday meal with my friend. Sadly I was not impressed at all. Although we were 10 minutes late, our table wasn’t ready and there was nowhere at all to sit whilst we waited. When we eventually got our seat, we had quite a... More

Really enjoyed the food when we visited recently, The only issue I have is that it looks like they are trying to squeeze as many tables in as possible which gives it a very cramped feeling which I am not a fan of. Food was delicious and the staff were excellent.

We were surprised and pleased to find that the Bridge was serving a traditional trattoria menu with great thin pizza and an excellent selection of fish dishes. The service was very friendly and the food was delicious and well presented. All this was served under an exposed beam ceiling and in front of a crackling fire. It was a great... More

My first time here and i was pleasantly surprised. It's a tiny but lovely environment with a friendly greeting from the hostess. We ate 2 courses (plus bread and oil) and 2 beers a pice for a tottal of around £115 for the 5 of us. Everyone thought the food was fabulous, and we'll be back again soon.
