Piggy Dave: We got a couple of strange looks as we walked in and while I wouldn’t describe the general vibe of The Bridge Inn as intimidating, I also wouldn’t say it was friendly. This is something of a pub trying to be a bit of everything with a (very busy) Thai restaurant at one end and a pub at the other, plus B&B facilities. We were at what I would term the public bar end (the website calls it a games room) where there were three screens showing Wales v Eire, a pool table and a fruit machine. The floor is bare wood until you reach the small middle bar between here and the restaurant where carpeting begins. The middle bar also had a screen showing other sports. The walls are a beigy-grey with horrendous 60s style flowered wallpaper in places. Even though the sound is up for the football (not particularly loudly) background music is still playing as well. The beer is uninspiring and halves cost more than they should. I’ve never been tempted to come in here before, and tonight hasn’t changed that any.

Piggy Corin: The Bridge Inn is a strange cross between a football pub and a Thai restaurant. In beer terms, disappointing with only Doombar and London Pride on tap. If you are after a football pub and not fussed about the beer then this place may suit. There were three screens, plenty of comfortable seating and clean tables. There is also plenty of standing room and a pool table is available (free on Tuesdays). This is obviously a well-kept pub, service was good with a steady flow of customers for food and football. The Thai menu is pretty standard and reasonably priced while also offering English options. The smell of cooking pervaded the bar and was not unpleasant. Decor is beige and pretty uninspiring. Background music competes for attention with the sports commentary. Wooden floor is dust-free and not sticky which is no mean feat. All in all, a reasonable footie gaff, but I won’t be going out of my way to visit again soon.
