“Lovely fish dishes, friendly staff”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We have dined at the Riverside 3 times by now. Each time the staff was particularly friendly, the food was every time a treat. Lots of choice of different fish dishes and really well cooked. I would recommend the Riverside to anyone who would like to have something different than a fish and chips or a typical salmon dish. I had lovely cooked skate here and was delighted!

“Great”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

5 of us arrived on Fathers Day for an evening meal, the staff were attentive and the food was just amazing. One of the group eats out all over the country regularly and said it was the best steak she had ever had. Many thanks to all the staff.

“Wonderful place to eat”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Superb food, with attentive service. This could not be faulted at all. There was a good menu with lots of fish dishes.
We went on a Sunday night and although small it accommodated everyone well.
