Welcome to the Punchbowl Inn Bridgnorth we hope you enjoy our hospitality and fine homemade fayre sourced locally and freshly prepared to the highest standard by our experienced chefs.
Nostalgia Inns began at our sister Pub the Plough Inn Far Forest when in 2002 we purchased our first venue with a small cash flow and a lot of ambition. In October 2002 we introduced our Carvery which created a lot of negativity with the locals as the saying goes ‘people don’t like change’ the concept in which we have thirty years of experience in the trade, was an instant success at the Plough as the carvery started to outgrow the pub so we made vast modifications to the site, and doubled the size of the kitchens, bars and restaurant area by 2004 the Plough had doubled in size and tripled in turnover. But it didn’t stop here as our customer base kept growing producing up to 600 meals every Sunday, with the recommendation from our Bank manager we searched for our second venue and we acquired the Punchbowl in June 2005 to expand the business.
Nostalgia Inns a family run business to the truest sense of the word now owning three pubs in the Worcestershire and Shropshire counties. As our parents continue to prosper at the Plough we continue the success as the third generation in the trade at the Punchbowl Inn. Adam and his two sons Jake & Zach and their staff will be pleased to see old and new friends, and have the pleasure of supplying them with our fine Beers, Real Ales, Best Wines and Premium Spirits.
