Had dinner a few weeks ago with our friends Gavin and Denise and is is the worst and most revolting place I have ever been to. Filthy food, and the most unhygenic place i have ever been to. Ended up talking to a very disgruntled family in the bar who showed us their bedroom. Totally disgusting, dirty carpets, taps didnt work, mould around the windows. A total disgrace to the hotel industry.

The Riverside never fails to impress us, serving up the best meals that we've had each time we go. The choice isn't huge but it is always a first class meal and the menu changes monthly.

I cannot understand the reason some reviewers state that the manager is rude and unfriendly - he is down to earth and essentially very efficient, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. The staff are extremely friendly, caring and polite.

This is the best place for miles around, excellent value compared with local restaurants/pubs in Cheshire where we live and, if the sun is shining, there is a wonderful view along the Severn from the restaurant. I cannot recommend it more highly.

We stopped off here on the way back from a Volkswagen show. we pass it all the time but for once decided to stop! glad we did! The place is just beautiful, great setting and clean. Staff are really friendly and very customer orientated! We had a table for 4 overlooking the river at the back of the venue, restaurant side. the food was superb and very reasnoble too. I would highly reccomend a visit to this little charm :) Food was about £80 for 4 and that was for about 3 courses and coffees and drinks! A massive thanks to everyone working that Sunday evening - was a pleasure visiting the riverside :D

Went to the riverside this evening sat 12 th October hadn't booked a table but we were there early ...had a look at the menu and asked for a table in the bar. Not a problem.. we ordered a starter to share .. Deep fried Camembert fritters with side salad they were delicious as was the red onion and cranberry marmalade. The mains were equally good medium rare steak with mushrooms tomato chips etc was second to none ..cooked to perfection. I had the Moroccan chicken skewers (which were a starter) as a main, with a side of chips, again superb very tasty succulent chicken splendid side salad and delicious home made chips. The waitresses were very friendly ...we felt most welcome by all the staff...... Thank you again Riverside for a very enjoyable evening... We will certainly recommend and be back

A fantastic location let down by an obnoxious and very rude manager,sorry "owner their is a difference you know!" No wonder they are looking for new staff especially if they are spoken to the same way as we were.Walked in to find a dog licking a human food plate from the restaurant then put back on the table , to then find a bug and caterpillar in my food (steak) £15 ,not being able to eat it we were given the bill, i explained that the steak meal was still on the bill where the owner asked how much I would want off the bill! I was not prepared to haggle down the price, so said I will pay it all and just not come back, the owner couldn't take the card off me quick enough ! STAY WELL AWAY food hygienists need to inspect with hopefully a lesson on manners as well! Shocked!
