A good meal with a good view

At the end of a row of renovated workshops, this restaurant is located, as its name suggests, by the river in the lovely town of King's Lynn. It is very pleasant to sit outside on a nice day but it is also very attractive inside. The mains at lunchtime are all 10.95 and all are good and freshly... read more

Lovely relaxing evening with the most stunning view from our window seat. Considerate staff were able to seat us in the window as requested. Lovely meal although mainly quite rich options. Cream sauces etc. Really nice deserts. The highlight is the relaxing peaceful setting as opposed to the food- but the food is also good

I came here with my partner for dinner before going to watch a concert at the arts centre, it was the perfect location for us and looked lovely. Everything seemed fine as we got to our table to order however there was only one vegetarian option witch was a negative but not one which is new to me as I... More

Visited with friends and we were quite a large group. The staff coped well as it was a busy evening. The food, which we had pre-ordered was good, although the fish portion of sea bass was rather small. It was a hot evening and we asked twice for water ... but still waiting! It should have been on the table... More

Had dinner here last night after a long day at Hunstanton beach and was not disappointed. The setting itself was lovely, right by the river with nice garden furniture so you could eat and watch the sunset. We were lucky to have such a beautiful evening, but had it been colder the inside of the restaurant was also nice -... More

The Riverside is certainly one of the best restaurants in King's Lynn. It specialises in fish but has a few other options. Lunch is delightful and if you can make it for about noon you might get lucky and get the window seat which allows you to watch the Lynn ferry skilfully ship people across the river. The lunch menu... More

Very good and extensive menu. Helpful and pleasant staff. Lovely views across the river - try to get a table overlooking the river. Outside is a balcony area with tables and umbrellas. Very nice on a summer evening with the river flowing by,

Period location and atmosphere right by the side of the river. Good selection of wines. Food quality very good indeed as was the service. Not too large so a good ambience. Not too expensive.

Lovely restaurant. Great service and even better food. Just couldn't believe how quiet it was! Would be perfect in the summer.

The quality of the food at Riverside was excellent. We originally chose it partly because of the interesting building, but the food was really good. I am gluten-free and milk-free, so eating out is always a problem, but the Riverside was willing to tailor the menu to fit. I had a lovely piece of salmon, brilliantly cooked, plenty of veg... More
