Went here for lunch on the strength of other reviews.
The homemade fish cakes were a high percentage potato and had been cooked in oil at too low a temperature making them soggy and oily. The side salad was lettuce topped with two slices of tomato and two very thick slices of cucumber garnished with random red onion.
I would not bother going here again.

Visited for a drink whilst waiting for train back home from Amberley after an 11 mile walk along South Downs Way - staff very friendly and welcoming - the Lodsworth brewery Hip Hop local real ale was tip top - one of the nicest I've had. Very homely and relaxed atmosphere both inside and out. Really enjoyed my visit. Lots of cyclists obviously felt the same way as garden very busy.

Have been going to this pub for several years and have to say it is one of my favourites. Friendly landlord who employs pleasant staff. Great food (whitebait starter is delicious) and Harveys Sussex is always perfectly kept. Add to this a beautiful location, right by the railway station so no excuse to be driving there, a beer garden with sunset views and a lovely pub dog who suddenly becomes interested in you when you open a pack of pork scratchings! This is what an English summer's evening should be about.

The food here is better than your standard pub usually serves up. The chef is Greek and when we visited there was a really authentic and tasty stifado on the menu. I had a plaice which was a monster in comparison to offerings that are common elsewhere and it came with new potatoes and a selection of vegetables - not the standard chips and mushy peas that gets to be such a bore. In a lovely setting and cool and characterful inside if you want to get out of the sun. Heartily recommended

Having often passed through Amberley on the way to Horsham but never stopped, a sunny and leisurely drive back from Horsham provided us finally with an opportunity to do so. With a few places to eat we chose the picturesque Bridge Inn for Lunch. What a great choice!

A traditional English Country pub situated alongside the banks of the river Arun, it is well located in the South Downs national Park and offers a convenient watering hole when exploring the surrounding area.

Serving a good selection of home cooked food, real ales, and a nice selection of wines the service and atmosphere is both friendly and professional. We had no complaints over the fish and chips which were adequate portions, tasty and well presented. Some may consider the prices a little higher than normal but the service and quality is better than one might expect.

A lovely building in a great position I encourage you to visit, we will definitely drop in again.
