Had a superb a la Carte meal. Fish beautifully cooked and everything nicely served with attention to detail and friendly staff. The dessert with a mini selection was SO good. For a special occasion one couldn't do better.

A late booking secured a table and after moving to avoid a noisy child and the bright/hot evening sun we were settled by a window in the back room overlooking the footbridge/river by a very helpful member of staff. We then realised we were exposed to the monotonous music beat emanating from the Fairground right behind the restaurant - that... More

We last visited about 7 years ago so when we were staying in the area again we made sure we booked a table! Just as excellent as we remember, sublime seafood and great selection of wine. The lobster was wonderful, they were even happy to show the 2 sizes available so I didn't make too much of a pig of... More

Visited the Riverside Restaurant for lunch midweek. An unassuming building in the middle of a boating lake. Inside tastefully decorated in blue and white. Excellent seafood soup with rouille and croutons and first rate quails egg scotch eggs with cod to start with, followed by the hake off the set menu. Our guests both had the treacle tart to finish...

Visited twice July 2014, fabulous food, excellent service and very friendly & knowledgeable staff. The owner, Arthur, made sure everything was ok for us and all the other diners. Highly recommend the hot seafood platter. Starters and desserts were excellent too.

Just a very short review to say thank you for the wonderful food, lovely wine and interesting views we had during our time at the restaurant. The scallops, lobster and crab were to die for!! (Having another family member pick up the bill made it even more pleasurable!) Thanks again.

During our recent visit to England, we -- three brothers and one sister and their spouses - had dinner at this superb restaurant in West Bay. The food was absolutely fresh, beautifully presented and delicious!! The staff was gracious and professional in serving such a large and boisterous group (we had not seen each other in nine years) which was... More

A trip to West Bay would not be complete without a visit to this restaurant. We didn't book in advance but called in soon after 1100 to enquire about a table for 1330. Yes, they fitted us in and even better, we had one of the tables for two in the window with a view of the river. We both... More

I was fortunate enough to be taken to The Riverside for lunch - it was superb. Wonderful fish, lovely dessert and excellent wine. Really good value at lunchtime. NB The Riverside is located in West Bay which is outside of Bridport.
