Have been visiting the Riverside pub for about 20years. The food is always consistent, long term staff fantastic, decor a little jaded, and the entryway definitely needs work. However the warmth of the people keep bringing the customers back, again and again. The wings on Wednesday and pan fried haddock on Fridays cannot be outdone anywhere.. Look beyond the entryway...

The Riverside is always packed by 6pm on Fridays. Everyone is there for the fish. Fantastic value and we love the buzz atmosphere. Try to be there by 5:30, but if not the wait is usually not more than 20 minutes.

We took a drive out to this pub from Halifax because the reviews were very good for both the wings and burgers. We don't know because when we opened the door to enter the building the entrance way was filthy and food all over the floor. It may have the best food around but I we have no idea because... More

Options are quite limited in Bedford as there aren't many places to choose from! Luckily the Riverside Pub is here, I'd vote it the best place to eat in Bedford. This is a perfect place to meet friends or coworkers for drinks, have dinner with your spouse, etc. This was our starting spot for girls night out one time. They... More

had the 2 for 1 steak on Saturday night, which was really good and excellent value ($13.99). The live music was an added bonus. It was really busy when we got there around 6.30 pm but a bit quieter when we left an hour later. Service was quick and efficient and the waitress friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back...

I had been in the area many times but had never thought to try this place out. Sort of hard to find tucked away behind the signs for the Sunnyside restaurant. It is a pub... a place to go with your friends for your favorite beverage and to sample some decent pub style food at a decent price. The service... More

The Riverside is tucked away, sort of behind and above the Sunnyside Restaurant. For that reason, it wasn't really on our radar for a number of years, but having been there once, we quickly made it a regular on our list of places to eat in Bedford/Halifax. Go on Friday night when they have a 2-for-1 haddock dinner, but be... More

I enjoy meeting friends here for a relaxed neighbourhood bar. However, being on a gluten free diet, the options are limited. The staff are very friendly and cheerful. Prices are very reasonable, especially the two for one each day.
