Eager to watch the Surrey Classic Bike Ride, my family and slew of Canadian visitors headed off to Bridge Road in Hampton Court to catch a glimpse of the cyclists. We lunched first at Five at the Bridge, which is perfectly positioned for open views towards Hampton Court Bridge.
We managed to fit the seven of us on the patio out front, which is a great spot to soak up the great atmosphere on Bridge Road.
Inside is simple-chic and airy.
A nice surprise, there’s a lush rear garden that’s a quiet place to escape the bustle of the area.
A simple cafe, Five at the Bridge serves up simple breakfasts and lunches using top quality products from local sources. Chicken, pork and beef are roasted on site.
Jman can’t resist a Salad Nicoise £9.75 and was happy to find one on the specials menu. This salad was superb, full of loads of fresh, tasty items and a huge amount of food. We all watched him with envy and it was good value for money to boot.
They even have table service, something of a shocker given the low prices. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Houseguest number one had the corned beef with pickle £3.00. Reports are that is was good. It’s hard to say much about these sandwiches, they’re pretty basic, but for table service and that price who can complain?
Houseguest number two went for hot roast pork with apple sauce £4.20, it was really enjoyable with nice thick slices of pork.
I had the Roast corn fed chicken with mayo and salad £3.50. The chicken was definitely straight from the carcass but I think I had the top slice of bread in the bag because it wasn’t fresh on one side. I of course had no tomatoes, they gave me cucumber instead.
5 at the Bridge is a good bet at great prices for lunch near Hampton Court Palace.
