The Bridge Inn combines traditional with a touch of the contemporary. Set in the idyllic Yorkshire village of Stapleton, near Darlington, the approach to the restaurant takes you from the busy town to the calm of the country in just a couple of minutes. Just a stone's throw from the River Tees, the Birdge Inn is often referred to as the most northerly pub in Yorkshire.
The restaurant is famed for its fine food and quaint setting - it's one of the most historic pubs in the area.
The Bridge Inn dates back many centuries situated next to The Green which once was root to a 600 year old elm tree. In 1937 two birch trees were planted marking the coronation of King George VI. In the past, The Green was used for a food festival; today the festival is no more, but you can still relish the finest foods at The Bridge Inn and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Always Top Nosh
My wife and I have just dined out for birthday celebrations. It's a no-brainer when choosing a setting for a special occasion. The Bridge Inn wins every time. From arriving to great hospitality and service to the fantastic food served, as always. Superb. Keep up the great work. Many thanks. David, Helen Frew |
