We had a lovely meal in a delightful setting. It looked to be the nicest restaurant in town and didn't disappoint. It's a bit tucked away but when found overlooks the river and is well presented as is the food.

A friend and I had booked a table for lunch but when we arrived the weather was perfect for an outside meal. We both ordered the Coronation chicken sandwich which came with a small side salad and large chips. No complaints there but the white wine to accompany it could have been colder. The terrace is in a lovely position... More

Set in beautiful surroundings with a lovely terrace and garden and a pretty restaurant room overlooking the river. The staff were nice but the food was very ordinary. Far better places to eat in King;s Lynn

The Riverside has the reputation of being on of the better restaurants in Lynn and it didn't disappoint, The service was pleasant and attentive and the food was super. There is a great view over the river and a terrace to enjoy it from when the weather is nice. Long gone are the days when the Riverside was the premier... More

Twenty one Probus members on an outing to Kings Lynn for a guided walk arranged to have lunch beforehand at the Riverside. It was very promptly served and good quality for a reasonable price. I will be using again especially as the location is on the river with outside seating as well as inside and is in the historic centre.

Well what a find. I could have gone McDonald's (weren't that desperate) but for cheaper than Big Mac and two coffees I had a cafetierre coffee (2 cups) with chocolates on plate. A delicious freshly made feta salad for 9 pound. On top of that the service is excellent, the building spotless. Great! But it gets better you sit eating... More
