The Bridge Inn is the second pub operated by Inn Ideas Ltd owned and run by Samantha & David McHattie. We started at the end of July 2012 taking over The Devonshire Arms in Baslow before refurbishing it in December 2012. In December 2015 we were approached by Greene King to consider The Bridge Inn and unlike the 4 previous pubs we were asked to consider we said “Yes” straight away, taking over in January 2016.
After months of renovation and over £600k of investment we are now open for business.
You will find a relaxed and welcoming environment for you to enjoy a beer, a glass of wine or a cocktail. Or if you are looking for food we offer a tapas style small plates menu. The food cooked by our outstanding kitchen team is not the usual pub food but offers a wide choice to act as the perfect accompaniment to sharing time and food with friends or family.
The tapa’s style of dining is an experience that holds a strong sentiment for us. We adore the relaxed approach. Our menu is not all Spanish, just great food, perfect for sharing, for exploring flavours without the risk of the typical “pick one main course” approach and price. Great ingredients to relax and enjoy time with friends away from everything.
We love this style and wanted to bring something different to the area. We already offer the more typical pub food menu items at The Devonshire Arms in Baslow down the road and The Bridge Inn was the perfect opportunity to do something different that we have a real passion for.
Some will say its no longer a pub – we disagree, we are still a pub, a place where you can relax, rejuvenate and socialise. Whether over a beer, a great glass of wine or a cocktail, with or without food to share and either inside or outside in our superb riverside beer garden.
We hope you enjoy your experience with us.
