Welcome to The Bridge Inn at Upper Woodford's Facebook page! We are a family run business, with three generations behind the bar and over thirty years experience. We pride ourself in hearty home cooked food and real English ales. Why not pop in and relax in our garden that borders the river Avon. Less than 10 miles from Stonehenge and only 6 miles from Salisbury we are the perfect countryside escape.
Booked a table for 7.30pm the day before. On arrival told we were outside in the marquee . We were not told this when we were booked and would not have bothered had we known.All mask wearing indoors was non existent. We were all dressed...up but not for outside and our table was a grubby picnic bench.! No heaters like at other establishments and it was 12 degrees .
The main meal was average but not worth the price paid. Mine had to go back as it was wrong. The only saving grace was the pudding which was good albeit expensive.
And just to totally ruin the evening there was a group of youngsters who decided to get rowdy playing loud music, standing on the chairs and really lowering the tone. None of the staff intervened. I pity the locals living nearby. Definitely won’t return and we are local people.More
Untrained Staff every where, not achieving much
Do we order drinks inside, outside or at the table?
Food average served on trendy plates
,bought in puddings plated up nice
Have to ask for things twice ,but make your decision quick or you’ll be...forgotten
Location is idyllic , but has lost its way
Even strange attitude to bill payingMore
We wanted to have a family pub lunch. We were seated in an outside marquee, and it was extremely busy. There were insufficient staff to deal with the large number of people. The roast was quite good, but the desserts were much better. Queueing for...paying was totally chaotic.More
Their website says that they prefer telephone bookings. I have spent the last three hours phoning at regular intervals trying to make a booking. Noone has bothered to answer the phone. I appreciate that they may be busy, and, being an occasional visitor, I can...understand why. However, it this particular aspect, they need to 'Buck up'. It is disappointingly pathetic.More
Booked riverside table at The Bridge for 14 August, 4 days in advance. Arrived on time. One table free, confirmed with staff ok to sit at table. Drinks served. Food served. Then shocked to be told mid-way through meal that the manager insisted we had...to move. Made to carry plates with half-eaten food past other diners to a table in the car park. Later transpired reason for move based on a lie. Manager could not be bothered to speak with us. We were mugs to move. Serving staff ashamed of way we were treated. Eaten at pub several times and will not go back again – pretty location; weak, unprofessional manager.More
We met friends at the Bridge for Sunday lunch. It was very busy and there was a wait for food but that was fine. Whilst the roasts were nice they were served on cold plates and being sat in the marque the food cooled quickly....The crab, salmon and prawn salad was very small, tiny in fact, starter size so not worth £14! Puddings were better but varied from very nice to very average. The young staff had clearly not been given much, if any training, at times they seemed overwhelmed and the beers ordered where not what was received. We went to pay the bill and they had no record of what we had had, so the system for recording food and drink orders was clearly not working. Perhaps this was an off day as it was so busy, however we won't be going there again.More
The location is excellent and the revised outdoor layout and facilities lends itself to coping with a British climate, with an outside covered bar area, an eating marquee and plenty of robust tables with large umbrellas. But, the young staff are lazy, rude and ignorant,...with an almost begrudging attitude to table service, particularly if you are seated in the tables farthest from the pub building. I was told I could “get it yourself then” when I mentioned the 18 minutes I waited for table service! The food, when it arrived, was average too and not a patch on other nearby pubs. A shame as this pub used to be really quite good.More
Went for what was meant to be a relaxed supper with friends at a country pub, was rowdy and loud with the owners and staff seeming to do nothing about it. Our waitress was very rude and abrupt and didn’t seem to care that we...were not enjoying our experience. Food was overpriced and tasted like a microwave meal- made worse by the other diners being drunk and obnoxious. I will not be returning.More
