    Lovely meal. The atmosphere was very good did not feel rushed. The staff are so nice. I asked for special rum in my cocktail and the bar man went and got the rum from another bar on the premises. The attention to detail was lovely they had Christmas crackers on the table. The food was lovely and hot. I asked for a dessert that was not on the menu and there was no problem getting it for me.

    We booked a standard table in the bistro but when we got their the place was empty and they only allowed us to sit on a high table with kids or move to the bar that had same menu. Child hit head off table so had to move. The first table we were moved to in the bar was two square and one round pushed together. We waited a long time for food. While waiting they moved us again to a normal table in bar area. Food arrived and standard has decreased from our previous experience and for what you get example the salmon was way overpriced. What was meant to be a nice birthday meal out in a restaurant ended up being in a busy bar which we could do anytime. Two hours later when I went up to pay the bistro still had all the lovely empty tables. Such a disappointing experience and we will not be rushing back anytime soon.

    Myself and my family have dined at Char Bistro a couple of times now and each time the service we received was brilliant. The food has also been very tasty. I would highly recommend Char Bistro.

    Walked in at 21:00, our booking time, and was told they don’t serve food past 9. Staff were friendly enough about it but didn’t offer anything as we had traveled just to go to this restaurant

    I really love the look and atmosphere here. I love the design and dark v light look of the place. The food as always is excellent. I had the mushrooms to start and the chicken to follow. Very impressed with the quality. A huge congratulations to the staff, some of whom knew Aisling and I think one staff member knew Aisling and great credit to her for coming to work despite the huge emotional difficulty for her. And indeed for us all. I really think Aisling would wish us to celebrate her life and would wish us to carry on with love always. Much love.

    I was very impressed by the atmosphere in Char grill. I really can't believe that after all the times I have been in Bridge House, I have never been in Char grill! Don't get me wrong, I love Balcone also but this is just as good but just different. Well done!

    I booked a table but when I got there I was told it was only carvery and no table service. As it was Christmas Eve we decided we would make do and had the carvery which was very poor and cold. We ate very little and left as it was very busy.

    Hi AudreyC, Apologies we are only responding to this now. As you can appreciate our sector during Covid was torn apart. I am disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your dining experience with us. We would hope you would give us another opportunity post Covid. All the best, The Bridge House Bar & Char Bistro Team
