Decided to have Saturday lunch here and wished we hadn't. Food extremely greasy and over cooked, way over cooked. Drinks were cold so maybe just stick with a bev or 2. Check your bill upon leaving as we were overcharged! Won't be going here again!

Disappointed. This place is expensive for what it is. It's a fancy pub. I was expecting a really nice meal and proper home cooked chips not something that we felt had come from the local takeaway. Service is good with some nice beers wines and...More

Hi there, That/s a real shame that your experience at the bridge was that awful. l don't blame you for dishing out a bit of harsh reality. The pub is now under new management and we are doing our best to right any wrongs that...More
