Dine in a dome
The restaurant is known for being open all year round. However, it is the first time when you can enjoy the beautiful 360 degree vistas of all four seasons. The domes are a perfect setting for any special occasion: be it a birthday party, anniversary or a night out for two.

Ye Olde Bridge Inn features three cosy outdoor domes that can accommodate up to 8 guests each. In October 2023 we’re introducing new, extra large dome, that can host up to 14 people. All domes are equipped with De’Longhi heaters and Bluetooth speakers, allowing the guests to play their own music.

    The service we had of our host was amazing . It was pouring with rain and she did a fantastic job . The food was great apart from one of the puddings which was very hard . We spoke to the hostess and she dealt with it straight away

  4. 16 th birthday, dome dining

    Was a lovely experience from start to finish, Ruby was our waitress , she couldn’t do enough for us , the food arrived piping hot, the crispy chicken starter was beautiful.. thanks for a lovely evening!!

  5. Dome dining

    We booked the large dome for my mums 60th birthday. What a great evening had by everyone. Will 100% be booking a dome again. Service was great, the staff were so lovely and attentive. My daughter has to eat a low in fat diet so after speaking with the chef Steve he made her a low fat pizza which she was so chuffed with. The food was absolutely delicious and those that hadn’t been here before said they would definitely return.
    Thankyou to all for making my mums 60th birthday a special evening.

  6. Dome Dining

    Absolutely amazing environment I came with 6 of my friends. We had a fantastic night food was fantastic even my gluten-free option. The staff were amazing especially our waitress Ruby she went about and beyond 5 ***** service from her. We will be definitely booking the dome again.

  7. Absolutely wonderful

    We hired a dome for my mums birthday and I wanted to take her cake in and make it a centrepiece before she arrived, I called ahead and was impressed by how friendly and accommodating the lady on the phone was. Upon arrival I experienced excellent service and the staff helped me make it really special. The done itself is fairly expensive but well worth it for a special occasion. The food was exceptional and excellent value for money – the portions were huge. Cocktails were delicious and throughout the evening the staff were attentive and friendly.
    I can honestly say I can’t remember the last time I experienced such high quality food and service in a lovely atmosphere. All of us will return.

  8. Family birthday celebration

    Thank you

  9. Dining in the dome

    Absolutely fantastic came with the kids for my fiancé birthday. It was all very clean and the food was fantastic. The staff were absolutely awesome and made it a very easy enjoyable meal. Will definitely be coming again. Thank you YOBI!!

  10. Done dining

    Fantastic experience for my Mothers 92nd Birthday celebration!! Waitress service first class in every respect.
    Food exceptional and can’t wait to book another evening. Thank you so much

  11. Great experience, something different. The food was great and the service was outstanding we didn’t need to use the call button as the staff were always there when we needed them. The dome was a great idea for a birthday party giving you a private area but still having the pub atmosphere I was also able to take my dog and he was able to freely wander inside the dome whilst we had our meal instead of sitting under a table. Would definitely go again

  12. family birthday meal,

    we went for a birthday meal with family , it was just what we wanted, as the family don`t live near each other it made it really special to have our own space , the food was excellent as was the service, and it was a busy Saturday evening, could not fault it , the whole family enjoyed it.

  13. Lovely evening, great service, great atmosphere in the outside dome x

  14. Booked in last night for a dine in a dome and was amazing. Food was unreal with service to match. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and the whole done experience had been throughly thought through with heating, speaker, LED lights and a waitress call button. Would definitely recommend.

  15. Very impressed.

    Dome was warm,cosy and private. Had an amazing time celebrating a birthday.
    Food was lovely

    Would definitely recommend and we will definitely visit again ❤

  16. Staff were nice. Dome dining was Lovely. Food was very average and overpriced let it down.

  17. Dome Dining 4.3.24

    Food was delicious and well presented. Lovely atmosphere in the dome. Staff really friendly.

  18. Fantastic Family Celebration at The Dome Restaurant

    We had a wondeful time, meal and services last night. Would highly recommend the large dome if you want all the family to be together. It was a unique way of having a meal to celebrate my husbands 40th, but also allowed for the kids to make as much noise as they wanted+play with out disturbing any other customers.
    Thank you to Ruby and the other lovely ladies you were fantastic and nothing was too much. Honestly 5 star service.
    Thank you to all the Chiefs/cooks in the kitchen for a scrumptious meal, needless to say all plates were empty.
    Thank you again+we will be returning

  19. Amazing dome dining

    My family and I have visited here a numerous of times, but last night was our first time in the dome. Amazing scenery and lovely food. The dome was lovely and clean and was warm on entry. There is several lights and a portable bluetooth speaker for customers to play their own music. Great and friendly service, and the food was lovely and fresh.
    Will definitely return!

  20. It was lovely! Especially as it had just snowed, so we were lucky! Food was lovely, staff were very friendly and had a lovely time. Booked again

  21. We had a wonderful first experience
    at Ye Olde Bridge Inn and will highly recommend to friends and family! The
    food was delicious and service was just as good. Our waitress (Ruby) was so
    polite, friendly and helpful, a true asset to the team. Dining in the Dome
    was a special experience too, would go again for other special occasions. We
    will definitely be back!

  22. Excellent Dining Experience at the Dome!

    We had a lovely dinner in your dome
    yesterday – excellent atmosphere (very snowy!) and the food and service was
    excellent – our waitress was so friendly & helpful, we had a really great
    time – our 3rd dome dining in the past year & it didn’t disappoint! Thank
    you x

  23. Had a great evening in the large dome. The food we had was plentiful and really nice and the service was excellent.

  24. Fantastic night in one of the domes,
    slight mix up with the bookings, but was soon rectified. Setting was so
    pretty and food was delicious, one slight thing we couldn’t get coffee
    after 10pm, which wax a shame as we all wanted coffee, but just a minute
    thing. Fantastic night all round

  25. Celebrated our anniversary in a dome, just the two of us. Lovely romantic setting. There was no need to wrap up like we did, as inside was cosy with heating, ambient lighting, fairy lights, a blue tooth speaker and a waiter call pad. All staff were pleasant and polite. The food was delicious and plentiful – no room for pudding this time! We were surprised with a card and a happy anniversary sign from the team, a lovely, much appreciated gesture. Couldn’t fault it at all, we shall
    be back and are happy to recommend. Thanks team YOBI!

    The only fault, it’s minor, was that there was no lighting in the car park at the time of our visit and it was incredibly hard to see. There are some potholes, one that my crutch and foot happened to find, luckily my husband steadied me before I fell.

  26. A special birthday in the dome

    My friends and I had a fantastic evening in the large dome for my birthday party. Everyone commented on how different and amazing the dome was. It was lovely and toasty on a cold winter’s evening with the heaters on. The service (including the dome call button), food, drinks and atmosphere were all fantastic and the domes looked really magical. Thank you so much for helping to make my birthday so special.

  27. Enchanting Evening at Restaurant

    Wonderful evening, everyone enjoyed it food very good , so cosy in those domes. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Will definitely go again.

  28. Wonderful place.

    What a beautiful place, enjoyed every moment, wonderful staff and fabulous food.

  29. Top Notch Experience at New Big Dome

    Where do I start, right from booking
    of the venue. The number of times I called to make amendments thru to the
    food, service . Everything was amazing and top notch. I am glad to have been
    there with my 12 other ladies in the new big dome. Definitely coming back and
    the ladies were in love with everything.

  30. Excellent Sunday Roast at Pod!

    Booked a pod been twice now in pod good value for money we had Sunday roast which was beautiful staff. Wry helpful & friendly will definitely be going back highly recommend

  31. Wonderful Dome Experience Celebrating Birthdays!

    There were three of us booked in for a Dome.It was wonderful. Great food, great fun. Sophie looked after very well. She was attentive and helpful. A really lovely afternoon, celebrating birthdays!
    Thank you

  32. We really enjoyed our family dining experience to celebrate a
    special birthday. The only problem to be aware of is in hot weather there’s
    no air conditioning & the dome became like a greenhouse even from 5pm. I
    would be reluctant to hire a dome in hot weather again, but will try in the
    colder months as there’s heating.

  33. Excellent Dining and Playtime for Daughter's Birthday Party

    Enjoyable experience as always. Delicious food, great GF options
    Helpful waitress, great atmosphere. Had a lovely time for my daughter’s
    birthday party! Children enjoyed playing in the playground. Thank you

  34. Fabulous Service and Cozy Atmosphere

    Service was fabulous, dome was great to have a little privacy
    whilst still in the bustling atmosphere of a busy country pub. Lovely in the
    blue skies, came alive in the dark when lights on. Small plates were lovely,
    better than the mains.

  35. Fantastic Night at Dome Dinning

    Had a fantastic night attending the Dome Dinning. Staff were
    attentive, friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Would definitely attend
    again. Highly recommend.

  36. Great Food and Service in a Dome

    Had a great evening for my friend’s birthday in a dome. It was sunny, so it was very hot! However, the food was nice & the service was good. The only problem was that they didn’t have scampi & that’s what my husband normally has.

  37. Service was excellent, from all staff (and we had a few looking after our dome). Very impressed with the button service too.
    Music outside was loud enough to be heard over our blue tooth speaker, which was a shame to have 2 lots of music going (hence lower mark for ambiance).
    Would certainly book again for another special occasion

  38. Spectacular Dining at YOBI

    Highly recommend the dome dining. Food was spectacular as ever and special mention to our server, Philipa, thank you for putting up with us, you are a credit to YOBI!

  39. Celebrating Special Birthday at Pod

    Had a lovely evening for my partner special birthday hired a pod
    which was an amazing experience food was amazing and the staff were so
    brilliant and couldn’t do enough can’t wait to come back

  40. Excellent Food, Delayed Service

    Food was excellent. Use of the dome was nice despite the heat.
    Unfortunately we waited over an hour for the food which even though it was
    busy seemed too long and affected the use of the dome. No issues with the
    staff who were lovely.
