Just been here for Sunday. Very disappointing. Had roast beef. The beef was fatty, the vegetables overcooked, the cabbage was totally stewed. It was not very warm.. One of the worst meals we've had anywhere.

Pretty poor standards of food here. We ordered a pheasant scotch egg at the bar while we waited to sit at a table which had a horribly over-cooked yolk and we were pulling strings of tendons from between our teeth, not nice in the slightest. Things then went from bad to worse. The menu arrived and we were pretty shocked by some of the items available, ranging from the delicious sounding ham hock and smoked eel terrine (which we ordered), to the frankly Fanny Craddockesque sounding filo basket with cheap applewood cheddar (which we didn't order). The terrine held so much promise on paper but turned out to be overpoweringly salty and the picalilli would have stripped the paint off of my car bonnet, awful. The fillet of pork stuffed with pistachios and served with pumpkin mash, globe artichoke and baked mushroom cream was as confused in the mouth as it was in the mind of the chap who devised this dish. In contrast to the terrine, it was underseasoned, bland and dry as a bone. My wifes steak was nicely scorched around the edges but woefully over-cooked and tough as old boots. Service was o.k. but I think someone needs to look at the quality of the food being produced and simplify things if the kitchen team cannot achive better results. Dissapointing.

I have been to this Pub a number of times and the food has always been excellent.

The staff are extremely competent, and not falsely "matey" (don't actually want that, thanks).

The decor, which some reviewers seem to have a difficulty with, is functional and doesn't pretend to be otherwise, thank goodness. I go to a restaurant to eat good food, not be charged over the odds for mediocre food in expensive and pretentious surroundings.

In short, superb and unusual food -exactly as food should be.

the bridge in barnes has often been a hit and miss affair 12 months ago it was not a venue that one would have chosen as a night on the tiles but steadily the menu has devoleoped into a very reasonably priced gastronomic delight from a pork belly and black pudding delice with seared scallops and fennal slaw to the ever exiting scallops benedict the kitchen is open plan so you can actually watch the cheff cooking your order although i must say that the level of ambition and flair has decreased in the last 3_4 months it is still a high qaulity venue with an ok wine list ( mediocre at best wines at a very highly inflated price) and my husband noted that the cask ales could not have been stored properly (cloudy ale) to sum up still a bit of a hit and miss venue the food is exeptional as is the service although the wine list and bar could do with a major overhaul i shall most certainley be ruturning especially on a monday evening when it is half price main courses
