Down a small alleyway, the restaurant is upstairs overlooking the river. Beautifully set out, with rustic beams. Tastefully decorated. Meals were superb, reasonably priced. Very pleasant staff.

I am born and bred in Kings Lynn, but this is the first time I have ever been to the Riverside Restaurant. As it was a beautiful sunny evening, we sat outside with a river view, lovely! The waitress was very attentive and did everything she could to accommodate the needs of a large party that were sitting near us... More

Food was fairly predictable but cooked very nicely. It was a treat to have vegetables brought with the main course, which were cooked perfectly. Scampi claimed to be sourced from Whitby (not local) but much more likely to be frozen and not fresh. Despite this presentation was good and the accompanying chips were excellent.

A beautifully situated restaurant in the historic part of Kings Lynn. The terrace is a wonderful place to sit and view the river, whilst indulging in some wonderful food provided by the innovative chef. If you want a summer treat include this in your regular repertoire, you wont be disappointed. The puddings are always home made, and the strawberry shortcake... More

We have been to The Riverside Restaurant in King's Lynn on numerous occasions - for a group pre-Christmas meal (several years running), when we have had friends visit us and (most recently) when we were invited to a friend's 70th birthday celebration. The restaurant is located up a flight of stone stairs situated in the courtyard of The Arts Centre... More

We went in to the restaurant whilst staying in Kings Lynn and I have to say 'what a nice surprise'. My wife had the steak and I had gammon, having both had a prawn starter. Very nice indeed and well worth a visit

The Riverside Restaurant is located off King Street at the back of the Kings Lynn Art Centre complex. We went there on a Friday evening. When we arrived at 7.00pm only two other tables were occupied. After walking around the town during the day this seemed to be the most promising place to go for dinner. Kings Lynn does not... More

We recently had dinner at this restaurant and I was very disappointed. We had asked for a table with a riverside view which we were given BUT our table was a small table for two which was wedged in between two tables for four and was positioned so that one of us had to have our back to the river...
