River views

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

We ate in this restaurant as it was recommended by the owners of the Fairlight lodge. It's within walking distance through the park. Although it was quiet in the restaurant as it was a Tuesday evening, the food was excellent and the service good. Would recommend this.

I have eaten here several times at lunch time and have always found the food and service to be excellent. Booked a table for the Saturday night of Mother's Day weekend as a treat for my mum. The restaurant has well spaced tables and lovely views over the river. Our food was all well cooked and tasty although my partner... More

We have eaten here with family before and had a good experience. Food is nice, good choice of meat dishes and food is carefully prepared. This time service was slightly slower. About 20 minutes between courses but worth the wait. Staff are helpful and efficient. We'll visit again.

We have eaten here for lunch before and returned wondering if our past great experience could be repeated. It was! The ambiance remained the same; great location, great choice of food and great service - from Susan. We were not hungry so shared a leak and ham tart starter which was amazing, and then a fish pie gratin - even... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner with friends,we had looked at there web site and sample menu,but some of the dishes were not listed on the menu that we were given, so if you fancy a steak or fish, it's better to check before hand. It has to be noted, that this restaurant has no parking and certainly not for... More

Lovely lunch yesterday. Brown shrimp and leek tartlet to die for!! Attentive service, river views and stylish interior. Only drawback was that there were stairs to entrance. OK for us but not for the disabled. Will definitely go back again.
