I was expecting great things as described by our hosts. Unfortunately first hurdle was finding parking, not quite a nightmare but close. As we were shown to our seats the place did not seem full at all, but it seems we were all herded into one room to make their serving easier. I'm not small & our seating was quite... More

Just the one night but a lovely stay in a beautiful location. Room had everything you would need and more. Breakfast utilised local suppliers with the sausage winning the 'favourite item on the plate' award. All staff friendly and attentive. Will visit again.

This was a special set menu for locally 'foraged' food. It was excellent value and delicious food. Ample portions and very efficient but delightful waiting staff. It was a really well run evening with superb food. Whatsmore, I could not eat two of the courses and was offered a fabulous alternative without any fuss at all. It deserves fulsome praise... More

As one can see from former reviewers, the food is most certainly well cooked and flavoursome. But if there could be cause for concern, and there is little to complain about, is that the portions are very generous! Hardly cause for complaint is it! For our romantic visit, the setting was perhaps too 'traditional pub' with close seated tables of... More

Stayed here on Saturday night 4th June, as a stopover on the way to South Wales. Was a last minute booking - no double rooms available but had a twin room which was ok. Lovely setting by the river and my husband took advantage of the fishing on offer and caught about a 3lb brown trout which made his day!... More

A year after our first visit to the Riverside Inn, we returned last weekend expecting more of the same, even down to staying in the same Room 4. However, certain aspects that were merely quaint or quirky last year have proved to be an irritation on this subsequent visit. For instance: lack of a toilet-roll holder in the en-suite bathroom;...

Four of us met for Friday lunch. The menu is full of interest and variety. My wife raved over the breaded snails (NB locally sourced snails), I raved over the wild garlic soup (NB you can pick more wild garlic just outside) and our friends raved over their trout. Our mains of pork with black pudding for them and braised... More

Visited with friends for a three course evening meal. Menu was a little limited, but great moules from the river to start with and a divine ox tail for main course, slow cooked and tender. Home made ice cream to end with, great.

I have been going to The Riverside inn since I was young with my pearents. Since then I have worked there, and now am taking my own family there. It's a perfect taste of Herefordshire, boasting a picturesque setting by the river, lovely beer gardens and the building itself is cosy and full of character. The staff are always freindly... More
