We had a good meal. The service was excellent, the food was good but perhaps a bit overpriced for the quality. The location is excellent with lovely views

The food here is imaginative, presented beautifully and was very tasty, with fair sized portions The service is friendly I can't quite put my finger on it but the dining room lacks atmosphere, perhaps the lights are a little bright, a candle or two may help. We had breakfast there and it was fine for that meal. However the meal... More

Each course is beautifully presented and the taste is amazing. Would recommend the scallops and the duck breast. Just wonderful.

We walked down a long, winding hill to Symonds Yat East, discovering that there are two good places to eat. The most popular didn't have a garden, just a stone terrace overloooking the Wye. Riverside Lodge looks a bit tired from the outside, but it has a good bar, plenty of choice and a big restaurant where dogs are welcome!... More

Food OK but took a long time to come & we had to wait until exactly the right time to order...they wouldn't even take a pre order and give it to the chef at the right time....attitude appalling & rude. Toilets & pool table area smelled old & damp.

After not getting served at the Saracens Head down the road we tried the Riverside lodge. It still has the same stunning location and view of the river Wye. We had a very nice meal and a beer sitting in the garden overlooking the river. We had not noticed that we had waited 45 mins for our meal to arrive... More

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
