“Excellent once again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Visited on a lunchtime and once again found the experience excellent.
In addition to the normal tapas menu there was a superb tempura prawn and and equally impressive breakfast scotch egg, there always seems to be excellent specials well worth checking out.
As for the service and welcome, wonderful and speedy with nothing too much trouble.
We even seem to have converted an eternal guiness drinker to the pleasures of the superb cloudy cider available, which is so thirst quenching, lets hope for some good weather.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Was looking for somewhere in Bristol for Sunday lunch which didn't break the bank and was told about River City. We all had the roast dinner and it was really good and reasonably priced. We were made to feel really welcome by the very friendly owners - nothing seemed too much trouble which is quite unusual these days! Will definitely go back there.
