A city in a hotel

If you've never been to the Bridge Hotel, you are in for a treat. The exterior gives no clues for what's in stall for you. The Bridge hotel has had the Sandhill group classy, innovative and imaginative rejuvenation. This historic pub has been transformed into a mega pub. The entrance of the hotel leads to a laneway that reminded me of walking on a cobblestone lane in New Orleans.

The Bridge Hotel caters for people of all ages. Within the hotel there are several unique area such as wraparound seats, tall bar tables and stools, comfy lounges with eclectic cushions, intimate private spaces, outdoor tables under umbrellas, retro style dining booths. Overhead balconies and open spaces. Take time to appreciate the art and eclectic collection of bikes in the stairwell and photos upstairs.

On a regular day, if there is such a thing at the Bridge Hotel, they serve some classics such as a 200 g Black Angus cheeseburger with salad relish, American mustard, pickles and chips for $21. The southern fried chicken with smashed avocado is very popular or try a brioche Bun, also $21. The pie floater is served with creamy mash, mushy peas and gravy. This sounds perfect for a cold day ($24).

Other traditional pub meals such as fish and chips, chicken parmis and steak sandwiches are done in the Sandhill way – with style and flair.

The staff are renown for their for enormous effort put into special events and their positive attitude. they are out to help you have a fun time.
