Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between The Bistro Bar & Deck and The Bridge Terrace?
The bistro has a more traditional pub menu; steaks, seafood, parmas, pasta, whereas The Bridge Terrace serves wood oven pizzas, tapas, and larger share plates. All of our menus are up on our website if you would like to check them out – www.bridgehm.com.au
The Bridge Terrace is the end of the hotel that faces directly toward the bridge and the roundabout, with the terrace seating overlooking the boats; the bistro is at the rear of the hotel which you enter through the rear carpark
Are you open for breakfast?
The Bridge Terrace is open for breakfast on Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 8-11am. Please note that kitchen will be closed between 11-11:30 am on these days so that the chefs can set up for lunch service.
Does the kitchen close between lunch and dinner?
The Bridge Terrace kitchen serves food from 11:30am-9pm every day. The bistro kitchen closes between 3-5pm Monday-Thursday, and serves all day from 12-9pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday & public holidays. The Sports Bar serves a limited menu from 12-9pm every day.
Are you open on public holidays?
Yes, we will be open as normal on public holidays, however please note that there is 15% surcharge applied to food and beverages purchases.
Which area is better for kids?
Both dining areas have kid’s menus available.
Can I request a specific table?
We will always make a note in your booking if you would like to sit in a specific area and the staff will do their best to accommodate this when allocating tables, however we cannot guarantee anyone a particular area.
Can I book a table on the deck/outside?
BISTRO – We cannot guarantee tables on the deck, as they are so weather dependent – we would hate to have you stuck on an outside table in the case of rain, wind, or blistering heat! We book all tables indoors, and if you arrive and there is a table available outside, you would be most welcome to take it. I would recommend coming early if you are wanting to secure a table outside, as in warmer weather these tables fill up fast. We can put a note in your booking that you would like to sit on the deck if possible.
THE BRIDGE TERRACE – We cannot guarantee tables on the deck, but all requests for sitting outside will be noted in your booking, and accommodated if at all possible. Tables on the terrace will be set on the day, if weather and circumstances permit.
I am booking with a large group – can we sit on the deck?
The bistro deck is not really conducive to seating large groups, the tables are small and suited to groups of 2-6 people. The Bridge Terrace can accommodate larger groups outside, but only if weather and circumstances permit.
Do you have a seniors menu?
There is a seniors menu available in the bistro, available Monday to Friday for both lunch and dinner.
Please note that seniors’ meals are not available on weekends or public holidays.
Do you have wheelchair access?
Yes, if you are coming to the bistro there is a wheelchair accessible entrance on Nepean Highway. If you are coming into The Bridge Terrace, there is a temporary ramp that can be put out for you. Please let the staff know if you need the ramp and they will help you out. There are wheelchair accessible toilets in the bistro, which can be used by café patrons also who find the stairs more difficult to navigate.
Can we bring a dog?
Unfortunately we don’t allow animals in the hotel, with the exception of service animals such as guide dogs.
[We have a beer garden next to the car park in which you may sit and order a meal or a drink and have your dog with you.]
Can I smoke/vape on the deck?
No, we don’t allow smoking or vaping in any area of the hotel where food is being served. There is a smoker’s deck in the sports bar, and also in the gaming room.
Do you have a kids play area?
No, we don’t have a kids play area in the hotel.
Do You have accommodation?
No, we don’t have accommodation in the hotel.
