The Riverside was, of course, busy but as always the welcome and subsequent service was superb. The Venison was delightful but the meal was let down by the lobster and crab dish (which was... More

Had lunch here today and was very pleased. Thankfully we booked a table as it was very busy. Staff were very friendly and food came quickly. Nice children's menu. Really nice place and massive portions of good quality food at very fair price.

Work just across the road so always ordering for lunch. The food is so amazing every time. Great options for people who don't want to eat meat too. Lovely staff and they have created a great atmosphere in there. Whenever life calls for a meal out, i go there and i leave really happy every time.

........ Is getting closer, and therefore another roast at the riverside. Missed it last week by trying somewhere else, won't make that mistake again. Fantastic. Haven't been on here for a while and have to say I'm finding some of the reviews on here a tad surprising, who doesn't like blue cheese on a burger?!
