The Bridge Inn: ‘Offering dine in and take out wood-fired pizza has transformed our business’
Located in a beautiful setting next to a watermill, The Bridge Inn is a relatively small country pub. It sits off the beaten track on the outskirts of Pateley Bridge.
In April 2021, just as Covid rules were easing, The Bridge Inn approached us to supply them with a wood-fired pizza oven so that they could offer quality cooked food, without having to fully open up their kitchen. Within weeks of receiving their wood fired Igneus Pro 750 pizza oven, their business was transformed as people could sit outside and enjoy a pizza and a drink, without even having to enter the premises. What’s more, they started to attract pizza take-away trade from the local campsite, which added an unexpected, but most welcome source of income.
Fast forward a year or so, and the pub’s reputation has gone from strength to strength. They now operate two Igneus Pro 750 ovens and offer an even more diverse range of wood-fired food to the local community and visiting tourists.
‘The two Pro 750 ovens have totally changed how our business operates. We are now very different to our competitors offering a more diverse menu with woodsmoke flavours. The ovens give us a takeaway option which works perfect given our location next to a Caravan site.’
