Travellers' Choice
A handsome, ivy-clad 18th century building, once a private bank, overlooking the River Ouse and yet right on the edge of the town centre. Its atmosphere balances that of a boutique townhouse hotel and a bustling, relaxed, traditional inn. 24 beautiful air-conditioned bedrooms with luxurious bathrooms. Fine but informal restaurant, twice winner of AA award for best wine list in the UK. Also wine shop with 'enomatic' tasting machines, bar with real ales, and free wifi.

The fist time since September 2020 my partner and I ventured out for a meal and what an amazing experience. I choose the Old Bridge simply by reputation and previous experience and we were not disappointed. The staff are attentive and superbly trained in their craft. Great customer service makes the dinning experience so much better and these guys know what they doing. The food was excellent, my partner and I had the prawn starter, thankfully de-shelled and followed by steaks cooked to perfection, love Caesar salad side. We finished with a great selection of cheese and port. The cheeky Italian wine we shared (sorry I can’t remember the name) was delicious. Unfortunately I never took the names of the staff members who served us, but if the boss is reading this review we ate in the restaurant at 8.30pm 6th June, they were amazing and my our stay so special, they deserve a high five. The Old Bridge is the perfect place to take your loved ones for a well deserved treat.

Have stayed before the plague, but this review is purely about my booking experience. We really, really need a break as one of us is on the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable Register, so we have been stuck indoors for many, many months. I love cooking, but it has become so repetitive I could climb the walls. Decided now that places are opening up again, to book a weekend break in July. Rang up and talked to Autumn, one of the most customer oriented people I have encountered. Not only did she explain everything about the room I wanted to book from an accessibility point of view, she also said it would be no problem to book DB&B and have lunch instead of dinner on the Sunday.. Autumn is a star. Please cherish her Old Bridge management.

Tommo thanks so much for this review. We are looking forward to seeing you in July. We will look after you as safely as we can - obviously we are a busy hotel so we can't shield you completely from other people, but we will take as much care of you as possible. We will also certainly thank Autumn, she is indeed a wonderful member of our team. Kind regards John Hoskins

Me and partner enjoy coming to The Bridge, its lovely location and in the summer lovely to sit out (the chicken tarragon sandwich is probably the best sandwich in the whole world and I say that every time - its incredible1), and in the winter it's very cosy with the open fire. The staff are friendly and professional. However, we came in yesterday 19th December 2020 and were disappointed sadly on this occasion. I ordered cheese and biscuits and was disappointed as it came with only six small crackers and a tiny amount of cheese, and it could have been presented better for £9.50, very thinly sliced cheddar and a couple of thin sticks of celery. We had planned to come for lunch on New Years Day but very unlikely now.

Thanks for your kind words about the hotel in general Lucie. I'm sorry you felt the cheese was poor value. However, I am afraid £9.50 is what we need to charge for 3 cheeses from Neal's Yard Dairy, who really do mature the best cheese in the country). I feel that 6 biscuits is enough for the amount of cheese served (with celery, apple and quince paste) but I realise that everyone is different so I will ask the team to make clear that you can have as many more biscuits as you like. The cheese is the key. This month we have Tunworth (brie-style, very soft); extra mature Lincolnshire Poacher; a new goats' called Elrick Lodge from Scotland; and Colston Bassett Stilton (we buy them whole to maximise the quality). Beyond that I suppose I need to say that £8-£10 is the minimum we need to charge for almost any dish (that isn't simply a nibble). As you know the hotel and the team well, you will understand that every guest has to help pay for a small proportion of the whole cost of running the business. I hope you will re-think your concluding remark, but in any case, have a Happy Christmas. John Hoskins

My wife and I stayed two nights in this marvellous hotel for my birthday. From check in to check out it was amazing. The staff are on top of their game. The food was fantastic. The breakfast was brilliant. We had room service for the breakfast, bang on time and piping hot. The lovely birthday touch was so appreciated and very thoughtful of the staff involved. We stayed in room six the four poster with an impressive en-suite. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all the staff at the hotel, doing a great job under difficult circumstances. All I can say is go and stay there and enjoy. Thank you The old bridge.

Four of us stayed here on our way back to York after a week long staycation. We had the dinner, bed and breakfast package and I have to say everything about it was fantastic. I can’t mention all the staff that made our overnight stay a great one, but Charlie and Harvey were fantastic waiters during our evening meal. I can’t remember going anywhere that every member of staff looked as though they enjoyed their jobs. Bar staff, restaurant staff, breakfast staff and reception staff all fantastic. I even requested some milk for a cup of tea to be delivered to our room for 7am, it arrived bang on time. This is a gem of a place and a great find. We will hopefully be returning in the future, we’ll done to all of you, great job !
