The Bridge Inn is a 16th century riverside pub in Michaelchurch Escley, Herefordshire. As well as excellent food, real ales and wines, we offer B&B accommodation in the nearby Bridge Farmhouse and a small campsite.
The Bridge Inn is “Beneath weeping willows, beside a brook…and it’s an idyllic place to nurse a pint or tuck into hearty local dishes such as braised shoulder of lamb with Gwatkin cider” – The Independent, October 2014
Our Bridge Farmhouse B&B accommodation is listed in Alastair Sawday’s Special Places (Pubs & Inns of England and Wales) and the Daily Telegraph featured the pub in its 2015 guide to the best British pubs saying “lovers of good meat and beer flock to The Bridge Inn”.
If you’re more of the outdoors type, our small campsite adjacent to the pub – with the option of staying in our shepherd’s hut too. Find out more on our camping pages.
Michaelchurch Escley is in Herefordshire’s Golden Valley, in shadow of the Black Mountains. Why not stay in the Bridge Farmhouse, enjoy our pub the Bridge Inn and explore the Golden Valley, Brecon Beacons National Park and Offa’s Dyke Path. We’re a 15-minute drive from Hay-on-Wye and 25 minutes from Abergavenny.
Hearty food, real ales and ciders in a riverside country pub
The Bridge Inn pub is next to the the Escley Brook. Children often play in the river while their parents have a pint and it’s great for a family meal too. The 16th century pub has woodburning stoves, flagstones and offers real ales, ciders and great food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
We are a freehouse serving real ales and a selection of local ciders (we are in Herefordshire cider country!), as well as a great selection of wines. Try one of our favourite ciders, Gwatkin, made down the road in Abbey Dore or a Wye Valley Brewery ale.
We like to use produce from some of the fantastic local farmers and artisan producers in the area. We serve pub classics as well as dishes with a twist. See our menu page for our latest dishes.
