Me and my family have just enjoyed a lovely breakfast here! The staff were friendly and welcoming, and service overall was excellent. The food was lovely and well cooked, piping hot and well presented. For £4.95 a breakfast it was worth every penny!

I have eaten the "Bridges Breakfast" here many times and it has always exceeded my expectations. The staff couldnt have been more helpful and accomodating. Ten out of ten! I would highly recommend this family run, friendly cafe.
