Family run, independent countryside pub, kitchen and gardens out in the rolling beautiful countryside.

About the restaurant
From Nottinghamshire reared Beef to Oxton Carrots, Ye Olde Bridge Inn sources as much of its ingredients from local suppliers and from the surrounding fields. Vegan and Vegetarian food is part of their core menu development. You wont find the standard ‘pasta’ options with them! Where possible, gluten free alternatives to all the dishes are offered. From the tastiest Pizza Dough to the homemade Gluten Free Yorkshires.

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. Highly Recommended!

    I celebrated my 80th birthday in a pod at the Inn. It was a
    lovely way to enjoy the family together in a private space but with great
    service and food. I would definitely recommend it.

  11. Delicious Dining

    Would of liked a bigger choice in sweets but otherwise amazing

  12. Excellent Customer Service: Average Food

    Customer service was top class! The manager was a dream, really
    looked after us so well. Food was pretty average for my taste but ok! Would
    go again!!

  13. Delightful Dome Dining Experience!

    A lady’s lunch in one of the Domes we were looked after so
    well, the food was lovely and the lady who was looking after us couldn’t
    have been nicer. We loved it! Thank you

  14. The Pod was great

    We enjoyed the Pod, great idea for private dining. Whilst the
    young waitresses were very pleasant we felt they were a bit inefficient, some
    minor issues which could have easily been avoided. Roasted vegetables in my
    flat bread main very undercooked.

  15. .Smooth and Friendly Service

    I appreciate the alloted times but service could be a smoother
    and faster.
    On arrival a little disorganised but staff very friendly and accommodating
    and was a lovely unexpected treat for my husbands birthday. We will be
    booking again. Thank you

  16. We hired the dine in a dome for mothers day. The experience in the dome was unique and really enjoyed it. It was warm and we played our own music which was a nice touch.
    We all started with cocktails, I wouldnt recommend the cocktails for the price of 9.50 each.
    Food was beautiful, service was efficient and quick with friendly staff, we had a buzzer in the dome so didnt even have to get up to order anything.
    Would definitely recommend for special occasion, would even book with a few friends on a nite out.

  17. Overall excellent service

    Went there for my baby’s birthday lunch, booked a dome and it
    was so nice and warm.. enjoyed dining in the dome. Very affordable too. I’m
    a very picky eater so the food was average for me.

  18. Dinning in the dome

    Dinning in the dome was a fantastic experience. The staff were friendly and made sure you wanted for nothing. The food was delicious, and would highly recommend dinning there. Will definitely go again

  19. Amazing evening in the dome

    Hi I went here with 7 friends had a great night 🌙 excellent food, atmosphere amazing 👏 and our waiting staff were just amazing and so accommodating couldn’t do enough for us 😊 would definitely go back xxx

  20. We had lunch in one of your domes which was lovely. As we had two young children with us it was ideal for them to be able to play in the playground while we were waiting for our meals. The food was delicious and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hope to be back soon.

  21. I went with my husband for our wedding anniversary and we had such an amazing time. Our waitress Sophie was spot on with everything and was amazing. We thank you for making our day that extra bit special

  22. The pub was lovely

    The domes are amazing. Our waiter was lovely polite and couldn’t do anymore for us. The Sunday roast amazing.

  23. Thank you

    Absolutely fantastic night with the family, my grandkids loved the pod
    Service was great too Kerren our waitress did her upmost five stars

  24. The dome was a great experience

    Not that much choice with the food menu, both stuck to pick something. Service was good, knocked a few stars off just down to missing a few drink orders but overall service was good.

  25. Highly recommend the domes what an absolute treat absolutely fantastic amazing from start to finish
    Beautiful family pub perfect food
    can’t ask for much more!!!

  26. We couldn’t fault anything x Absolutely loved it in the dome
    would 100% recommend
    Philipa was lovely and couldn’t do enough for us

  27. What a lovely place- the staff were so friendly and provided an amazing services. They couldn’t have done more for us, they were great! We hired out the dome and we enjoy every minute of our experience. Highly recommend

  28. we dined in one of the domes for my mums birthday and she absolutely loved it. we were served by Sarah H at the bar and another Sarah in the dome. service was impeccable, friendly and fast. The food was beautiful, and eating in the dome was a great experience, my mum absolutely loved it. 10/10 would recommend, and will be recommending to friends and family. thank you very much!

  29. The Dome was lovely. Great service and a very romantic setting & it created a beautiful atmosphere.

  30. The food and pods was amazing a great start to the new year thank you

  31. Excellent as always! The staff were particularly good on New Years Day!

  32. The Dining Dome’s are a fabulous addition to the venue. They have pretty much thought of everything with a personal buzzer to request service meaning you get amazing privacy but are not neglected. Connecting your own phone to the supplied Bluetooth speaker so you can choose your own soundtrack is a great idea too. The food was absolutely amazing – faultless what more can we say. The charge for the dome makes it a little extravagant for just a couple (but worth it for a special occasion like ours was) but if you have a group of 8 it’s pretty much less than the cost of a drink each. A unique experience that is also dog friendly if needed which is great too. Cannot recommend these highly enough

  33. We will certainly be back to dine in them again

    Booked a dining dome for my husbands birthday meal as wanted something special and it certainly provided that.
    Twinkling fairy lights, blankets , heaters and our own Bluetooth speaker made the experience quite unique.
    The service was amazing and although we had a call button we didn’t have to use it as the staff were very attentive to our needs despite having to brave the strong wind

  34. You guys made our wedding day! Friendly and efficient service with delicious food as always. We can’t thank you enough. Perfect x Leigh and Maria
