Centrally located Bridgehouse Lodge Restaurant offers relaxed dining in either the bar, restaurant area or patio. Service was very efficient. Wide ranging menu. Food was flavoursome and well presented. We dined twice, the second time after walking out of another local establishment that over promised...and very much under delivered !More

Evening meal by the river. Good parking close by. Classic pub feel with a nice menu and good selection of drinks. Recommend for an evening meal and night out.

Have eaten here several times. Great atmosphere, service and food. Menu has a wide range of options and the meals are very generous in size so you need to have a good appetite to finish two courses. It's delicious, honest food suitable for couples, groups...and families. The restaurant and bar are spacious, warm and welcoming and has a really nice modern version of rustic decor. Plenty of outdoor seating options too. Definitely going back!More

We had a business dinner here on a Monday night. The restaurant was very busy as nothing else in town was open and it was worth making a reservation. The menu offers a good variety of meat and fish dishes but our vegetarian guest only...had one option. Overall the food was consistently good but expect pub grub. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating throughout the night.More

So glad we picked this place! Not only is the setting picturesque out the back in the garden bar, but the service was impeccable, so friendly and the food was amazing. We will be back!

The food is very good at this pub like cafe. Good service - its busy and thats a good indication. This is my second time to come to this cafe, the first one years ago - and it remains consistent with good quality food. Good...size portions, good prices and there is something for all family members. Highly recommend if you are wanting an easy meal.More

Very Happy we had dinner here. The atmosphere was great and the food was awesome. Very big portions. We ordered two entree’s each and because of the sizes, we were sadly unable to finish them. The chicken liver pate was beautiful as was the salmon...poke. The Mussels were a tad over cooked. But the leek and blue cheese tartlet was also nice. The staff in the evening were friendly and helpful.More
