We recommend starting off with a bowl of traditional French onion soup, or some escargots in garlic butter and cream foam if you’re feeling more adventurous. Then, move on to another French classic like the beef bourguignon, lobster thermidor or the duck two ways (confit duck leg bonbon, pan-seared duck breast, white bean hummus and sauteed potato), before ending on a sweet note with one of The Bridge Hotel’s freshly made desserts. Attracting guests from all over Cheshire to its Prestbury location, booking a table at The Bridge Hotel on The Village in advance is advised.
Mothers Day lunch for three at The Bridge in Prestbury was excellent. The set menu had lots of choice and at £29.99 for three courses was very good value as the quality of food was exceptional. Myself and my Daughter chose the Cod starter and then Beef with Yorkshire pudding for the main. Both courses were delicious. My Mum opted for the Melon starter and Seabass main course and she enjoyed every mouthful. The desert choices were also excellent. I had my favourite cheese and biscuits, Mum had profiteroles and my Daughter had cheesecake. All delicious. The staff were all very attentive and friendly and the Restaurant was full of character and history. Lovely !
Beautiful food, very romantic atmosphere with the piano player. Loved it! It was our second visit and will definitely be back. Hope they don’t change it too much.
My wife and I had a Very enjoyable lunch. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Excellent way to celebrate a birthday. Would recommend this experience to anyone
Excellent food and service. Lovely atmosphere and entertainment Staff very friendly and attentive. Beautiful characterful surroundings. A fabulous evening. Will definitely be returning in the New Year.
Like a very upmarket Faulty Towets. Pleasant service but slow - no background music in restaurant so absolutely no atmosphere. Particularly as it was Monday so not busy at all. Only 3 tables booked so instead of seating the custoemers every other table, we were all pushed together, in a corner. Very strange experience also the computer system for car reg .. when i questioned the reason for a computer rather than paper note i was told it was to prevent non Hotel users ... filling the car park - think that maybe common scence could be used .. another computer system collecting data i feel.
Saturday evening: Lovely meal from set 3-course menu - great selection - for main courses 4 of us had fillet steak (medium rare) and the other had venison. All cooked & presented beautifully. Excellent service; ambience rather quiet at 7pm but we were sorry to leave once the pianist started playing a little later. We'll definitely visit again.
Really disappointing meal on Christmas Day at The Bridge Hotel - no atmosphere, no welcoming drink/music/friendly staff. Food generally was nothing special (and my main mean was awful - suckling pig, more like old sow) and the price was high. Left feeling very flat and ripped off so will not be recommending to others and will not be returning.
Excellent meal again at the Bridge. Guy and Sue, wonderful as always, provided ambient music whilst we dined. We love this restaurant and would recommend you try it. The lamb on the a la carte menu is delicious!
Sunday lunch. On arrival quickly asked if we wanted a pre lunch drink and given menus. The service over lunch and food were excellent. On departure we were thanked for our attending and gratuity given.,
The food was good, however the service (order taker and food server) was very poor. On ordering a bottle of 'House White Wine' we were asked if we wanted shiraz or merlot; when bread was delivered, the only customer to have ordered soup was not offered any; when the food arrived it was not as ordered; having obtained the bill we had to find someone to take payment - poor service from start to finish. btw when we did get the House white it turned out to be a more expensive bottle.
