The immediate drive to get to the hotel gives no indication of the fantastic location of this hotel. The grounds and views along the river are amazing for wedding photographs or just for a sunday walk along the river and refreshments in the garden. Dogs are allowed in the bar area. The interior of the hotel is modern but comfortable... More

Over recent years the setting remained as great as ever but the food and decor were certianly far from a "thats a nice place to go", Went for Sunday lunch today after readine about the recent improvements and expected...

Eaten here previously for lunch & dinner and never been disappointed - fish dishes are especially good. First time for breakfast and the quality is excellent. Staff are lovely. Felt very welcome with my well behaved gundog. Very civilised. Loved it

We arrived at the bar to order drinks, the barman did not know what a lager shandy was... Not a great start. We sat outside, after ordering our meals. We noticed the waiters shouting out people's orders, as they had obviously not taken table numbers from diners when processing the orders. Our meal eventually came, the fish and chips was... More

Visited the other day now it's been revamped. Looks loads better but still some of the same issues... always under staffed! On a positive though Sam has always been good with us and she is always so bubbly even when it's obvious that she is busy! Food also great, not had a bad meal there over the years!

The hotel has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. However, the rooms are very small but that is mitigated somewhat by the fact that they are well designed. Food and drink were excellent and reasonably priced however there doesn't seem to be anyone in charge and the staff are to say the least a bit hit and miss.... More

I rang all day to book a table here and nobody answered so I booked online. We went here last night for a meal and we're looking forward to seeing this beautiful place revamped. Unfortunately it seems to have been done on the cheap. Poor paintwork shoddy gardening and one of the ladies toilets was already out of use. There... More

The Riverside Hotel is a short distance from the town of Branston (where the pickle comes from!). I understand it has recently been refurbished and when we stayed there it was as described; well decorated and clean and tidy throughout. The rooms are probably a tadge on the small side but don't let that put you off. It does what... More
