Visited the Bishop on the Bridge for the first time for Sunday Lunch today and had a great meal with excellent service. The only drawback is that they allow dogs in the bar/restaurant which unfortunately if we had known we probably wouldn't have booked. Apart...More

Thank you for your review. Indeed we do allow dogs throughout the pub, and whilst I realise it doesn't always agree with everyone, I have to consider that we are a pub alongside the river, one where streams of people enjoy walking... in particular those...More

Great pub with a nice selection of drinks. The outdoor seating is by the river and is wonderful. The food is also quite nice.

We had drinks and light apps here. Definitely a step above "pub food" when you tire of pies and mash. Good food, great atmosphere and nice outdoor patio.
