    We visited for a second time as our first was fabulous. Unfortunately the food was not as good this time. My partner ordered the flat iron steak with chips, the steak was ok but the chips were bog standard manufactured whereas before were lovely chunky triple cooked hand cut. My friend and I had the lamb curry which was so salty and the rice was very dry. There was quite a gap between first and main courses so I asked if there was a problem to be told they were just busy. We were however offered a half pint of beer each which I thought was acceptable. It's a shame as we recommended it to our friends who we went with. The pub itself is lovely with great outside space and a terrace. I would drink there as they have a great range of beers but not sure if I would eat again

    Great menu with lots of interesting options. We had lobster starter, crab sandwich and black pudding to start so couldn't finished the chicken pie and beef hash that we had ordered for main! Service was very good with 2 people who worked hard to make sure we had a great lunch.

    The food was very good and the atmosphere and service also good for casual dining. We found the menu a little difficult to understand. The waitress said all the lights were small when I asked if they were suitable as starters. But the haggis toastie definitely was way too big to eat before fish and chips (very very good though). Portions are a good size so choose your 'starters' accordingly. Great cider (Bee Sting)

    The food at the Bridge Tabern gets better and better- we had fresh whole mackerel with a salad that included samphire and a summer pudding to follow and it was great- we’ve eaten worse at many restaurants. Keep it up!
