Stopped for a quick coffee and was not disappointed. Fantastic flat white coffee full of flavour. We had the carrot cake and rhubarb cake which were delicious. Lovely views and relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.

A perfect view with a delicious fresh cake and a latte to warm yourself. Make sure you visit before the sunset to enjoy the beautiful view.

Stopped in for lunch Sept 2016. Enjoyed the food and the views. Didn't have time for dessert so called back after our river cruise for a serve of mud cake each. Best mud cake we've enjoyed through Europe and in Australia. A really delightful ambiance.

Lovely small café/tea shop. Offering home made cakes, scones etc. Great selection of teas and coffees and soup, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, toasties etc. Very small inside as its located on the side of the bridge. Excellent we ate there both days – once for toasties & cake and once for Afternoon Tea. Lovely

After a rather dreadful night at a certain cheap hostel that shall remain nameless here, I wandered out in search of somewhere nicer to have my breakfast this morning and soon found it in the cosy little Bridge Coffee Shop. Ordered porridge with banana and cinnamon - lovely smooth porridge (made with nothing but milk and oats; I just added... More

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
