A culinary symphony

My recent dining experience at The Bridge Inn’s Courtyard Restaurant, orchestrated by the gracious hosts, Justin, Molly, Renae and Jess, was a symphony of flavours and unparalleled hospitality.

Upon stepping into the Courtyard restaurant, a fusion of warmth and sophistication enveloped us. The charm of the surroundings and contemporary comforts, setting the stage. For starters I opted for the Scallop, King Prawn and Pancetta Gratin, baked with Parmesan cheese and tarragon-infused garlic butter (£9.95). The perfectly cooked prawns and succulent scallops showed the chef’s dedication to quality.

For the main course, I had the 10oz Ribeye, served with skin-on chips, roasted mushroom and tomatoes, finished with garlic butter and pea shoots (£25.95), a dish that showcases The Bridge Inn’s meat preparation. The ribeye, cooked to perfection, was complemented by well-paired sides. For starters Tom chose the Sticky Sweet Chilli Chicken with toasted sesame seeds, tossed in fresh chilli and spring onions (£8.95). The chicken, adorned in a delightful glaze, struck a perfect balance between sweet and savoury notes.

For the main course, Tom picked the Pan-Fried Sea Bass on a bed of wild garlic risotto with chargrilled asparagus and finished with a chorizo and thyme butter (£17.95). The perfectly cooked sea bass, accompanied by vibrant vegetables, became a harmonious symphony of textures and flavours - a culinary masterpiece that etched a lasting impression.

The grand finale for Tom was the Sticky Toffee Pudding with toffee sauce and honeycomb ice cream: a dessert transcending sweetness into a realm of decadence. The rich, moist pudding, drizzled with toffee sauce, provided a sweet conclusion to the evening - a perfect ending to a culinary adventure.

The house white wine, thoughtfully recommended by our hosts, seamlessly complemented the meal, enhancing the overall dining experience with its impeccable pairing. Post-meal indulgence led us to the Byron Whisky Bar for a tea, where the ambiance, coupled with an extensive whisky selection, provided the ideal setting.

As the evening concluded, our hosts recommended exploring the list of events hosted by The Bridge Inn. From themed nights to special tastings, the restaurant extends its offerings beyond dining, creating a space for foodies to engage and savour more than just meals. Additionally, The Bridge Inn boasts a spa: a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation, adding another layer to the overall experience.

The Bridge Inn Walshford’s Courtyard restaurant is more than a place to dine; it’s a culinary sanctuary where each dish is a masterpiece, and every moment is crafted with care.
