About Bridge 49 Cafe Bar and Bistro
Lovely location, great value, good food
Booked this last minute as the only restaurant to come up on 5pm in the area. Couldn't have been happier with the overall package. The manager and wait staff were lovely, the food was great and excellent value for money. Will definitely be back for a second visit.
My daughter and I went for mother's day, first visit. I would definitely go back & highly recommend.
The food was very good value and portion size, taste equally as good.Served hot. Attentive staff, efficient too.
Because the restaurant is on the union canal, it has a Rosie & Jim theme, both puppets sit at a table at the entrance, lovely touch for children.
A must if you have not visited.
