“Brilliant Pub "But" Stunningly Average food at best.”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We live opposite the Riverside and have now been across a couple of times since moving to Sheffield. The pub is fantastic, lovely decor, brilliant staff, great choice of drinks and lots of activities going on all the time. The only thing that lets the place down is the food. We have tried the burger and the spicy chicken wraps. The food always looks better than it tastes. The burger was dry and unseasoned, the wrap was supposedly marinated, it isnt. After asking, we were told the chef dips the chicken in a sauce before serving, this is not marinated! We always look forward to going to the riverside for drinks but we will be giving the food a miss in future. Tip - Taste the food you are serving chaps!
