user reviews of the Bridge Inn, Lynton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This pub has moved on from the old days having been taken over approx a year ago by Gary and his family and they have big plans for the 'Ye Olde Cottage Inn' which is the new/original name of 'The Bridge'. Although still next to a very good campsite and a number of hotels, the pub is a hotel in its own right. Serving Exmoor Ales. Usually Gold, (my personal favourite) Ale and Stag but from time to time has other local ales on tap and of course Cider and Lagers. They also have a very good selection of bottled beers available. The Cottage is in the process of becoming a micro brewery in its own right brewing 'Fat Belly' ales. They have a lunch time menu which is traditional, they also do Sunday lunches and occasionally place bowls of roast potatos on the bar. In the evening they do Thai food from 18:30 but not on a Sunday/Monday. All the food is excellent having sampled for myself both the Sunday roast and Thai food many times. They are closed on a Monday outside of the holiday season. The restaurant overlooks the West Lyn river and the sound of the river adds to the general ambience of the place.

changed hands recently, and is now called The Cottage Inn, had a bad reputation, but is now run really well by a caring attentive landlord, three local ales, the Exmoor ale I was drinking was very nice, and the food was freshly prepared home cooked, we were staying at the campsite next door and ate in there most nights, don't be put off by it's past rep as the new landlord has apparently invested a lot in this venture, and seems eager to please his customers and keep them coming back, there also seemed to be a lot of locals both eating and drinking, which is usually a good sign

A lovely old building with a rather quirky arrangement of windows and doors set in a very good spot next to the river Lyn and a very well run camp site, (not part of the pub).
No real ale at time of visit just some grotty keg stuff with usual array of lagers and ciders. Food looked pretty average..... I suspect the deep fat fryer and microwave were kept busy.
Is it being run down so that planning permission could be sought to turn it into what would make a very nice private house ? Makes you think.
