Visited on 14th December with five friends for an evening meal and were all dissatisfied. The restaurant was cold and totally lacking any atmosphere and the food left a lot to be desired, the vegetables were solid! There were only two other diners and they didn't stay long!

We have been meeting up with a group of friends for a pre-Christmas Lunch at The Riverside for a number of years now because the food, location and staff never fail to please. The menu offers plenty of choice and at a reasonable price too. We will be back again next year pre-Christmas.

It was a cold and damp evening so not many diners.The restaurant is well designed with a very good menu and wine list. The food was good quality ,well cooked and nicely presented. Service was excellent. The restaurant overlooks the river so good views from some of the tables. Good value.

From entering the restaurant the service was excellent and the staff most obliging. There was a large menu choice for all three courses. The food was well cooked and well presented. The scene of the river through large picture-window enhanced the enjoyment of our dining-experience.

The Riverside Restaurant Kings Lynn. The quality and presentation deserves to be acknowledged. Everything here is fine dining. If King John was around today he would dine at Riverside.

Having been here many times over the years we decided to go back with some friends as we were wanting somewhere special.

Had lunch here yesterday in honour of the wife's birthday. The meal was very nice and the service was very good. Would have been nice if we could have had a better selection of vegetables, only broccoli on offer. This is the only fault we could find. A very enjoyable lunch. Thank you.
