Beautiful lunch!

Me and my mum came across this completely by accident. Neither of us had been to Kings Lynn before. We loved the location, the friendly staff and the views across the river.

We arrived on a cold Monday evening, being the only two in there our expectations were high but were met beautifully. Food was amazing and (even if it was dark) the view was stunning. If we lived closer I'd eat there all the time. The waitress was also very sweet and accommodating.

We had dinner in the Riverside Restaurant on a Saturday night and whilst the food was ok, it was nothing special. I was hoping for a little more. If I had to remark on one thing it would be the lack of atmosphere in the place. This wasn't helped by the fact that there were so few people there, but... More

I arranged a meal for my local ladies group and we chose the Riverside. 10 of the 12 of us chose the sea bass mains and I was a little concerned that 10 portions to be presented at once would not be easy but they were all perfectly cooked and with a delicious sauce. I had the shrimp and leek... More

The staff didn't seem very welcoming,almost as if they didn't want to be there. Then the food....well......choice of only two starters neither of which I liked....then the main... More

Went last night with my two sisters. Was not looking forward to it, to be honest. This place was always tired and dated. Great surprise new decor and ubholstery. Had three course menu option. Shrimp and leek tart very tasty - wish they had it for a main as was so delicious. Turkey dinner was good and hot, my only... More

Had a birthday lunch for a 95 year old father-in-law. The necessary flight of steps are a challenge but manageable, and although there's no parking allowed on site you could drive in and drop off an elderly passenger to avoid the lengthy walk. Although sunny outside at the time, and having a pleasant view of the river, we felt cold... More

We had wonderful service from a lovely waitress, informing us everything was local and home made. She made a very quiet evening very pleasant as we sat overlooking the river,

This is quite a long walk for someone disabled but if you have a wheelchair or scooter it isn't so bad. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is friendly and the food wonderful.
