We stayed at the Bridge last year for the first time and I have to say it was excellent and it is definately on the itinerary for this October. Little perturbed about some of the negative comments recently so will have to see for ourselves I guess. I don`t mind waiting for my food though, after all I am waiting in a broads pub with excellent ale and, as mentioned in another post, waiting probably means the food is fresh.

We stopped at the Bridge on Sunday 15th August, based
mainly on reviews from this website, so I thought it
only fair to add our experience to the list.

On first entering it was clear the place was very busy
(7pm-ish). After ordering drinks at the bar I was
pointed in the direction of Vanessa to find a place to
sit. I must admit that Vanessa seemed rather stressed
out and things didn't appear to be running all that
smoothly, but I figured that everyone has bad days. We
were then seated in the bar area almost immediately and
as there were 5 of us, we had one seat on the end of
the table. Vanessa came over shortly after to block off
the small passageway adjacent to our table to prevent
people disturbing us. Good start! It then became
apparent that things were running smoothly with the
waitresses coming in and out of the kitchen constantly,
all under the watchful eye of Vanessa.

While we perused the menu, the beer was going down very
well by the way. There were 5 adults in our party and
we ended up going for the following: -

Sausage and mash in a giant Yorkshire pudding
Chicken tikka massala
Fish and chips x 2
Steak and Ale pie

The verdict on all of these was outstanding. I tried
all the dishes and can personally vouch for them all.
However, as we have two teenagers who work part time in
a local fish and chip shop/restaurant, the standards
needed to be pretty high to get their approval.
Thankfully it did not disappoint. I am told that the
mash was also the best my wife has tasted. Perfectly
buttery without being too rich.

The one thing that seemed strange was that you cannot
open a tab and continue to add drinks / desserts to the
bill, but you actually have to pay for everything
before you receive it. This was only a minor
inconvenience and did not taint the experience at all.

All in all, the Bridge thoroughly deserves all the
excellent reviews it receives and I would have no
hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting the
Broads.

Well done Phil and Vanessa!!

P.S. We also ate at the Wayford Bridge later in the
week (which is owned by the same group as those who own
the Bridge) and we mentioned to the landlord that we
had eaten at the Bridge. He remarked how well Phil and
Vanessa coped with the tiny kitchen facility available
and had nothing but praise for them. No wonder it
seemed chaotic to start with!! The food at the Wayford
Bridge was also excellent by the way.

We went to the Bridge last October and couldn't fault the service. Hope to get back there this time as we missed it in April due to staying south. We are keen to see the new quay heading as we've only experienced the old very small rings !!!

I do remember Jona had whale n chips which he thoroughly enjoyed although I don't think he could manage it all so Ollie and Murphy got a treat !!



Regards

Jo

Went to The Bridge last night, it was packed.  However
the staff were brilliant and friendly and the Wherry was
good.  Only downside, as usual the veggie choices were
limited and when it came it was not very nice.  Plenty of
it and good hot plates but I think cooked by someone who
eats meat.  Never mind though maybe just bagettes next
time.

We were at The Bridge Inn on 2nd October and were not disappointed.  Managed to get moored up at the pub which was good as my wife is a wheelchair user, the concrete path from the quay heading was great to get her to the building with only a couple of steps over the flood defences to negotiate.
This was the first occasion that I was unable to finish a meal, not because it was bad, just so much food that I couldn't take any more.  Anyone who knows me will understand that this must be some place!!
Apart from the quantity, the quality was excellent with friendly staff and good beer.
We also ate at the Wayford Bridge which was excellent too, however, I was able to finish the meal there with the help of some good single malt whisky.
Had a great holiday and never had a bad culinary experience including a great chinese take-away in Horning.
Happy days.  Smile

We had a lovely meal there on the last night of our hol, (thu 14 oct)think there were only about 3 other tables eating that evening so we were lucky to get a window seat!  John had a T bone steak & i had the mixed grill, both we really enjoyed & found it very tasty & plenty of it! we decided to finish off with the 2 -person 'beltbuster' (we couldn't resist the description of all that chocolate)needless to say it was delicious & we couldn't finish it!  It wasn't the cheapest meal we'd had that holiday but it was well worth it & we'd definately go back again.
There werent any notices about paying to moor or forum members, maybe they take the signs down out of season!

called in today for a bite to eat, and again Phil and his team did not disapoint. If you do go upto the broads call in for the 2 meals for £9.95 and i would strongly recomend the filled yorkshire puddings, we both went for the beef cassarole, which was fantastic and just the job for a cold norfolk day. Phil seems upbeat all things considered, but watch this space hey Phil? again if you want a great norfolk pub with great food and beer call here. nuff said
