Call before you travel as this pub seems to have closed down. Hopefully the owner Wadsworth will renovate and open it up again as it's looking a little tied.

After a recent visit to the Riverside I was impressed to see friendly staff and some new changes encouraging events for weddings, wakes and conference/training facilities all with a fantastic view of the river. Great setting to host a special event.

I don't think they do a carvery on Saturday only at Sunday lunch. The menu in Saturday is the same as the rest of the week.
