Seven of us went for lunch on Sunday and having read some rather mixed reviews I really didn't know what to expect.
There were plenty of plus points for us - a very friendly welcome and the staff made a real fuss of our little boy, much to his delight. Real ale choice was great (Wainwright for us...) and the menu was varied too.
Only down side was the speed - it was very slow, both to take our order and to serve it. When the food arrived, we all found it really tasty so overall, probably worth the wait!

After a good start with very good service and food. We have been back for both lunch and evening meals. However of late the service and food standards have begun to fall. But if you like frozen scampi and fish your in luck. The specials board changes little and is often sold out. Disappointed to see this fall in standards so quickly, get a grip and pull your socks up guys.

Second visit to the Rivington Pub & Grill. There is a great selection of food and specials. They've also got some great beers at the bar. I enjoyed a couple of pints of Dizzy Blonde. The service is a little chaotic. We were seated quickly but it took a long time to take our order. We were left alone for long periods and would then get asked about refreshing our drinks several times in a few minutes. It also took a long time to be served out food. We were dining with kids - and the restaurant does offer a kids eat free before 7PM (I think) on certain days of the week. However, our meal took about 3 hours. Which is a long time to entertain little ones whilst they are waiting for food. The food was worth the wait. Meat temperatures were a little off but not as much to ruin the steaks. It is a great restaurant to dine and relax. When the weather is nice there is also a decent outdoor seating area. We'll return. Although maybe with a few more things to entertain the children with.
