Visited here on a Thursday lunchtime, taken in by the large beer garden with plenty of tables. As soon as I walked up to the door the barmaid was on her way out to collect some glasses from the tables, she said a friendly hello and asked how I was. She allowed me a minute or so to make my selection before she returned and took my order, remaining friendly throughout. She even asked what type of glass I would prefer (handled tankard or straight glass).

I went for a pint of Greene King IPA Gold at 4.1% which set me back £3.40 for the pint. A bit on the expensive side but not too extortionate.

Despite being near the main road, the beer garden felt nice and peaceful, especially with the river being so close.

It was pretty quiet on my visit, but perhaps that was due to the time of day. there was an older couple inside just finishing a meal, and a small group on one of the tables outside.

The inside of the pub is split into two fairly narrow rooms with a central bar - making the inside space feel smaller than you would expect when looking at the size of the building from outside. However on a nice day with the size of the beer garden, I don't imagine this would be a problem. Decent size car park as others have noted.

They had a couple of other ales on the hand pumps, certainly enough choice for a passing visit. All in all, I would recommend calling by on a nice day.

We decided to visit the Bridge Inn on a Sunday at lunchtime, as we know it is now under new management. We also know, from personal experience, that the new owner is very good at delivering an excellent level of customer service. Our first impression was that it was a very cosy, traditional country pub. We were warmly welcomed by the pub’s lovely staff.

Just a few minutes after we arrived, an attentive member of staff asked us if we were ready to order. We ordered the Roast Beef with vegetables, which was served within 5-10 minutes from ordering. The food was delicious: the roast beef serving was quite generous and very good, the carrots and cauliflowers were cooked to perfection, and we also enjoyed the roasted potatoes and parsnip.

All in all, it was a delightful experience and we would definitely visit the Bridge Inn again.

Riverside pub, ( a proper pub, not a gastro pseudopub) a big car park: two cosy rooms off the main door: a blazing log fire: dogs welcome in the public bar. Customers were a mixture of car tourists, grubby workmen, hikers and locals. We called as usual for lunch during a hike. Sandwiches were cheap and adequate at £3 to £4 but not of highest standard as the bread cob was a bit rubbery. Salad was included and was good. The extra chips were undercooked and not particularly plentiful. Abbot Ale was extortionate at £3.60 per pint. I grumbled about the cost and was told that price depended on alcohol content - in which case, tea and coke should be free then. Despite all this our stay was pleasant enough.I probably would go again.
