The Bridge Bar is a jewel amongst the pubs in Donegal. It's a small bar with a big atmosphere. Either one of the mother or the son always seems to be behind the counter ensuring a warm welcome. Good food is served upstairs. During winter,...More

We had a couple of lovely evenings at the Bridge Bar, a very comfortable and friendly family-run pub with a good selection of beers and wine. If Guinness is your thing you’ll be very happy. They also have some good local micro-brewery beers. The food...More

A lively atmosphere in relaxed surroundings. Live entertainment in the evening at weekends with local musicians of a high standard and a friendly crowd.

This is a lovely little pub with a really nice cosy feel to it, the staff were really helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. I would definitely go back.

This pub was recommended by our host when we arrived in Ramelton. We enjoyed the food so much on our first visit that we wanted to revisit later in the week - the restaurant part of the pub (upstairs) was only open Friday - Sunday...More

It's a little cute local pub - but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to eat. The food was average (my haddock was a bit overcooked, the carrot was nearly mashy). Service was poor and the place was crowdy and noisy - perfect as...More

This place is slightly over rated -we had an ok dinning experience here. Nothing to write home about. Functional as it's the only place to eat in Ramelton.

I am unsure as the bar/ restaurant is open all through the summer I don't think they are once the schools open and Autumn season begins. You may have to phone them. Sorry I can't help with your query.
