“New Owners turning this place around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012 via mobile

The Riverside Inn is now owned by the same guy who owns The Jolly Sailor and he's turning it around. I used to be awful but now it's really pretty good. Simple food well made. I had the burger which was proper home made and severed on a slightly pretentious slate. That said it was a damn good burger.

Outside is a huge amount of space, next to the Avon and a Marina. They have recently added a large kid play area too. Lots of space to sit outside. They do a Carveary upstairs which is not my thing but seems very busy especially for the bargain hunters.

Staff are well trained and polite and it's even got a bit of an atmosphere too. I've also been back for breakfast which was also good and they have free WiFi so I might use it for casual meetings.

“Very Mediocre Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

This restaurant has a lovely setting besides the canal. It's also very well presented and tidy, etc. But the food is rubbish I'm afraid. Very little meat given, some of my vegetables were very hard, the roast potatoes were frozen ones, they tasted very much of flour. I certainly won't be going back. It was also £8.95 for an adult carvery, which is quite dear for a carvery - I don't mind paying £8.95 if it's really nice, but not when it's cheap, rubbish ingredients like I tasted at this restaurant.
