You can walk here from Monmouth which I have done four times now & each time I've stopped here for a drink before walking back. It is a lovely building with a lovely garden that all people young to old enjoy, dogs are welcome with water available. Young children are provided with high chairs. I have eaten here twice off...

Whilst other restaurants in the area can be extremely busy this restaurant is attached to the hotel alongside the rather uneven car park. We ate here on two evenings in the bar restaurant. The food was fine plenty of it and service was good. It was early evening on both occasions but there was hardly anybody about which does not... More

My wife and I visited the Riverside primarily because the nearby pub was teaming with customers and this place wasn't. Parking anywhere near the river here is difficult on busy days and we were forced to park in the Pay & Display car park a short distance away. A steep set of steps leads up to the Riverside via a...

We visited Royal Lodge for an evening meal and were very impressed with the location. The staff were friendly and attentive but the food was very mediocre. The Posh Eton Mess was a shop bought meringue with cream and five raspberries for a cost of £6.95.. We would not go back to eat.

Poor choice for vegetarians but very helpful for gluten free. Value for money can only be described as average .

Surely some people here have been over critical? It's a lovely resteraunt. Friendly service, tasty food in a stunning location. We can't get there regularly as we're from Cambridgeshire.

We ate here while we were on holiday at Symonds Yat. The restaurant is part of the Royal Lodge Hotel and although we weren't guests there the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good as was the service. They serve Stowfold Press cider which is excellent.

If you fancy paying 7.50 per person for the most average cream tea...deal with uninterested staff who roll their eyes when you order it and serves your food with a big, open wound on their hand...say no more. Will never visit again.

We were part of a group that stopped here for an afternoon tea, for which we paid £18.95. This would be the cost of a two course meal in most other hotels. So what did we get for £18.95? A tray of beautifully prepared sandwiches with individual cakes, served with a china tea pot for each couple? Well to start... More
