I and a friend had lunch with you yesterday during a very busy Christmas lunch time for you. We were looked after very well by the staff, the food was AMAZING, Prosecco gorgeous, Cappuccino really good, time slipped by nicely and we floated out. Thank you very much and hope to dine with you again soon Sarah

Have been here several times and twice this month for work functions. The service is good and fairly quick, even in the middle of Christmas party season. Most recently I had the Crab Tartlet starter which was delicious, but sadly my steak (which I asked for rare) was medium at best. This seems to be a one off though and... More

Recently had an office Xmas lunch here, upon entering saw how busy the restaurant was and feared a long wait for rushed food! Far from it, food was excellent, service was fast and friendly staff made the afternoon one of the best I've had for a while. The number of people there was on reflection testament to all the above... More

Sat downstairs on a quiet evening. Menu does have a lot of unusual ingredients that we had to ask about and unfortunately they didn't sound very appetising! However my meal of savoury tart was absolutely delicious. Service haphazard - difficult to get staff attention, it was a quiet evening and they were busy chatting at the bar. Would have ordered...

Our Company Christmas meal was on Thursday11th Dec 2014. The Restaurant was absolutely full to the rafters so we were expecting a very slow service, but it was nothing less than perfect. The food was outstanding (all dishes were piping hot), and the atmosphere was brilliant. Thank you to everyone at the Riverstation, we hope to come back for another... More

Came here on what turned out to be a very busy Saturday night, full of Christmas parties. The place was absolutely packed. The only two negatives to get out of the way - it's really pretty noisy when very full. We had a little trouble hearing each other over the tables around us. Also I think in an attempt to... More

My partner and I visited for a romantic Christmas meal and we're certainly not disappointed. The restaurant was completely full yet the staff made it look effortless. The atmosphere was perfect, a lively, homely buzz and stylishly decorated with Christmas sparkle. The menu choice was vast and well explained by the staff. The range of drinks on offer was excellent... More

We went for a business dinner, completely forgetting that its works Christmas do time of year, consequently it was very loud and quite hard to hear colleagues around a table for 8. That said it had a good atmosphere, good views, good service and the food was good. There were a couple of odd dishes on the starter and dessert... More
