Needed a quick bite to eat and this fitted the bill. We managed to get a seat in this small bustling place and it was nice to know that we were on part of the historic Pulteney Bridge at the start of our weekend in Bath.I was pleased to see the shop was still here relatively unchanged as had visited...

Squeeze in, wipe the condensation off the window and enjoy the view together with great coffee and cakes. Contray to other reports staff although young were pleasant and efficient. Just the sort of independant cafe you expect to find in Bath.

The title says it all. Clearly the benefits of this location are not passed onto the guests. The owners have employed junior staff who are over worked. The breakfast looked as though it had been cooked by a 14 year old, and was burnt to a crisp. Coffee didn't taste of coffee. This place should stick to take out pastries... More

Tiny little spot but great if you're on your own with book or laptop or with a friend for a quick cream tea. The view of the river is what makes this place :) Bare minimum in terms of service. I think they've just concerned with volume as this is a very touristy spot. They probably feel like there's no... More

We visited the Bridge Coffee shop in Bath being in the vicinity of Pulteney Bridge and looking for a coffee shop not belonging to a large chain. The shop is located at the south west end of the bridge and is not large but it does possess one of the best views (of the weir), available in a Bath coffee... More

The Bridge Coffee Shop is a tiny coffee shop found on Pulteney Bridge in Bath. We only had a coffee (but the cakes looked awesome) but both agreed it was a nice cup of coffee, served quickly and with friendly service.

The food here was lovely (I had a ham salad baguette and it was reasonably priced too) but the staff are not very friendly. They were all foreign and came across very rude in the things they were saying to the customers. The view on the bridge is lovely and the main reason to visit this cafe.

Went in for quick cup of tea and got treated to the great view of the weir. Tiny place so wouldn't try with pushchair. Can't give 5 stars as didn't have anything but tea.

This place could be lovely, with its location overlooking the river, on the bridge. Looking on the board, among other things, we saw listed cheese sandwiches, cheese and ham sandwiches, cheese and tomato sandwiches and ploughman's lunch with pickle. So we asked if we could have a cheese and pickle sandwich. 'No', came the surly reply, 'only what is on... More
