Great food, great views

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... read 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.

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. Although we only wanted something light for lunch we decided to stay and have the scampi and we were very impressed with the quality and presentation of the... More

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

Went the other night for my wife works Christmas get together. Access isn't the best for myself as I have walking difficulties and there is a considerable walk from the nearest carpark. 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
