My wife and I went for our anniversary meal as we had never been to this restaurant before, despite living less than 10 mins away and having visited other nearby restaurants. We had a lovely table out on the terrace on the first floor as it was a warm evening. The service was attentive and good throughout. My wife went... More

This restaurant is a classy joint ! There are the usual carefully placed drops of balsamic and twirls of raspberry jus but the menu is very appealing and you don't get vast helpings. The service is very good and flexible - I wanted a green salad instead of the courgette salad and there was no trouble. I was particularly taken... More

Haven't been here for a few years and on spec had a late lunch - we hadn't booked but they went out of the way to accommodate us with a window table. A wedding party of about 30 arrived soon after which we thought might be stretching for the kitchen and staff but they coped admirably and we still enjoyed... More

I have mixed feelings about Riverstation Restaurant. The location in spectacular, the atmosphere in the restaurant nice and the service is good, but the food was not OK. We had haddock as a main course and it was overcooked and dry. In addition, the rest of the meal totally lacked flavor. The average rating is due to the location and... More

I visited river station last night and the service was great from the start. We were seated outside in the bar area with views over the river. The prices were very reasonable. We had two starters and two mains to share. The crab linguine was fresh and tasty and the whiting which was tender was great with the potatoes. We... More

I visit Riverstation around once a month. I'm never let down by the crab linguine, always fantastic, and the children's food policy (free in the daytime with adult meals) is very good. I do find though that the service can be wonderful one day, indifferent to rude on another. I'd prefer a happy medium!

We popped in for a quick bite to eat on a rare day off together - managed to find some menus, asked a waiter if we could sit outside (the answer was a curt 'yes'...thanks) brought some drinks and sat down. Then we chatted, perused the menu, decided what we'd like to order, chatted some more, finished said drinks, looked... More
