The Bridge Inn Hotel has undergone a facelift and renovation in the last couple of years. As we regularly past the hotel when visiting family in the area, we thought it was time to check it out. There is the bistro and lounge eating areas. The bistro had a more extensive and more expensive menu but was closed on the day we visited (Easter Sunday) so we were not able to try it out. We ate in the lounge area, and were lucky to get a seat of this busy day.
There were lots of appealing choices on the menu. The salads, pizzas and burgers all looked good, but we went with the pub standards from the menu, as we prefer to do when visiting such establishments.
Arancini balls – Rice balls stuffed w smoked ham hock, mozzarella cheese, sundried tomatoes, served w a mixed mustard mayonnaise
Porterhouse Steak – Cooked to your liking served with chips, salad & mushroom gravy
Risotto, one of the specials. A bit sloppy for my liking.
There were good kids meal selections. Our kids all had the Chicken Schnitzel – House made schnitzel served with chips & salad.
Overall it was as expected for a pub meal, good-sized meals at reasonable prices. It is a good place to go if you live out this way, as there are not of other options nearby.
