Good food good location fast and friendly service reasonable prices, highly recommended, this was my first visit and would definitely go again many thanks, excellent time spent
Fantastic food, superb hosts. Middle eastern cuisine at its finest. Thoroughly recommend to anybody looking for a place to eat out or order in. Even managed to get my wife to eat something other than a korma...and enjoy it! Thank you, we will definitely be back
We have been to this restaurant many times now and just love it here. It’s right on the river bank which is so lovely on a nice evening to have a drink first. The food has always been first class and the owners are so lovely they always make us feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The guys also have the most fabulous Mum who helps out at the weekends and keeps them in check. She is just so wonderful... We have introduced our friends to this lovely Restaurant too. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed 🤗😍😃
Lovely location on the river at Gunthorpe. The food was delicious and exactly to my taste. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive. This was a great evening for myself and my friend. I would recommend it highly.
Our first visit to The Bridge and Bayleaf. Its a very pleasantly decorated restaurant, with a nice pre-meal 'comfy sofa' area, to have a drink before-hand. The main eating area has partially zoned areas to make things a bit more private. The service we received was just a little lacking. We ordered the set meal for 4 and when the waiters bought the different dishes out, they didn't seem to know what we had ordered i.e the set meal. After about a further 5 mins of waiting, we then had to remind staff that we hadn't received any rice yet. The rice was delivered to the table after only another two or three mins, but the main dishes were cooling by this time. Having said that, the food was very good, with just the right amount of spice for our pallets. The staff were very polite and attentive and if it hadn't been for the earlier 'oversights' the meal would have just about been value for money. In view of those basic errors though, we thought that the overall experience fell a little short for the price we had all paid
The food was all round lovely, however the staff aren’t too bothered about service. They seem too laid back. When we asked what some accompanying sauces were, he didn’t know and didn’t find out. We ordered one drink, which wasn’t very nice and had to ask for it to be changed. We got given a lemonade instead “you’ll have to drink this” as the Coca Cola syrup was out. They’re £3.55 each and I’m not paying that for an unpleasant drink or one I didn’t order. The bill was wrong, but it would be too difficult to sort with the staff. I didn’t tip because of everything that happened and for the price we paid and the service we received it didn’t seem appropriate to. The waiter slammed down my debit card, and walked off. I could have been paying a tip in cash. A bit disappointed
An excellent restaurant the food was excellent with good sized portions. Staff were very friendly polite and helpful. Large selection to choose from on the menu and a very nice venue for situation next to the River Trent and decor was nice. Only negative we found were that the toilet area was very cold but it was a particularly cold evening too which didn't help. Would definitely recommend and we will return again as the experience was so enjoyable.
The Bridge and Bayleaf is in a delightful location by the river. The food was excellent and well presented and the service was efficient and friendly. A great discovery i will definitely be returning again in the near future.
The food is outstanding, one of the best Indian restaurants within the Midlands. The service is polite and warm without being over the top and the setting by the river is lovely. Whether you visit during winter, when it feels snug or in the summer when the alfresco area is thriving, the restaurant offers something to everyone. Highly recommended. I've eaten here many times over many years and I'm yet to have a bad experience.
Lovely ambiance, we had a drink while waiting for friends and were then offered a choice of table. The service was really excellent without being intrusive, the menu choice was extensive, the flavors and quality of food were wonderful and portions very generous. My husband forgot his glasses, so they provided a pair of ready readers for him to use! Excellent evening.
