“The Pub Under The Bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We have been here a couple of times now and The Bridge Tavern is fast approaching one of our favourite pubs/restaurants. Down stairs is open and spacious. It also has the copper tanks, in which their own ales are brewed. There is a yard with plenty of room for el fresco drinks. Upstairs has a small bar and a balcony area which is ideal on a warm summer's day or evening, for drinks and eats.

The food selection is good and every dish we had was delicious and filling. The real ale is the high point, with a fine selection of breweries to choose from. There is a special brewing fair at the end of October, which we are all looking forward to.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Well worth a visit ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We visited here yesterday and had a fish platter. Deep fried monkfish cheeks, squid, Craster kipper and other lovely stuff. The pork scratchings and peanuts cooked in bacon fat were to die for. Will definately be going back

“Sunday dinner over priced and disappointing ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Took my family for Sunday shocked at the price of a Sunday lunch 11.95 but thought well it's got to be nice for that price I ordered the beef my nana order the pork and dad beef also. The table was scruffy and asked the bar staff to give it a wipe they looked unimpressed as we had disturbed their little chat amongst them self doing nowt but chatting may I add. When the food came it was a lot smaller then expected it could have been served on a small side plate 1 Yorkshire which was nice 2carrotts whole which were very tasty but that's where it stopped cabbage that was tasteless and hard roasted potatoes that tasted like they had been reheated a million times and 2 slices of extremely tuff beef no other veg what's so ever. Only thing I ate was the Yorkshire and carrots and small piece of meat I tried to get a staff members attention but they were to busy chatting and messing about. When they came to collect our plates which may I add was to late to ask if our dinners were ok I replied and told the girl it wasn't and added that the roast potatoes were in edible and they are meant to be crispy and soft inside and were awful she says ur right there she didn't apologise and walked off with our plates I expected she was going to get a manager or was going to return with an explanation this never happen SERVICE VERY POOR FOOD OVER PRICED POOR POTION SIZE DISGUSTING. I will not be returning!!

“Really good pub grub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We went for a fishy treat here; the fish plank, some oysters cooked in a really crisp beer batter, some absolutely cock-on pork scratchings and some of the utterly fabulous pork-fried nuts. Really cracking food to be frank; the plank was replete with some gorgeous hot-smoked salmon and a really nice Craster kipper, some spicy squid and char-grilled sourdough - the tartare was pleasant and the pickled dill cucumber too, We'll be back for more snap...

You all ought to be very proud as the atmosphere is great as well.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Have been here for late night drinks before and stopped in for pre dinner cocktails. Great looking place, really well done. Great selection of ales and cocktails. Had a look at the menu for the first time and can't wait to come back and try the food. Looks amazing!
