The Kreft Family

The Kreft Family

It all began 17 years ago when the Kreft family stumbled on our beloved restaurant, left to ruin and disrepair. With great passion, dedication & experience they brought the most northerly public house in Yorkshire, back to its former glory.

Their vision was to create a dining experience that was unique and contemporary without losing the traditional ambience.. and they did just that.

With their great knowledge of our industry, they designed a menu that could be enjoyed by a vast majority of guests, "Dishes from around the world". By using fresh local produce & being able to source some of the more exotic items we ensured quality, value and variety, all with in one establishment.

The Kreft family, have created a perfect working dining experience, with a friendly, homely a comforting service and great quality food. The time & dedication that has been infused into The Bridge Inn can be viewed throughout our restaurant with every detail perfected over the years.
