Great place to escape to out of the rain. We had lunch here which was reasonably priced, tasty and served in a timely manner. The beers available on tap were good too! Would recommend.

Not sure what your question is, we live in Church Stretton too. The Rambler bus runs from the Cardingmill Valley at the weekends. We rode on it to the Stiperstones, then walked back to the Bridges, had a lovely lunch there... More
