Three of us went out to celebrate our son Chris's birthday, which was great, but the food was so good and the service so attentive but discreet, that we spent the rest of our time celbrating Chris's choice of restaurant. A great night out !. When we left there were 2 parties of 12, 2 parties of 8, and a few other customers who all appeared to be very happy !!. We certainly were.

Came as a works xmas night out, the restaurant was full, the service was very good, there was 8 of us, we all enjoyed our food , which was beautifully presented.
This is not the first time we have been, good everytime.
Ok you might say there must be something you did not like, well for me would have been nice to have jugs of water on the table, but then perhaps I should have asked, so this is not a criticism.
Would definitely recommend.

Food and service were good but we were charged full price for one meal for a person who was not there. Disappointing.

We were a party of four visiting on Saturday night and we all had the Christmas Menu. The food was absolutely delicious, waitresses were friendly and the atmosphere fantastic. Father-in-law can be quite particular when it comes to restaurants and he loved it so that is praise indeed!

This was my second visit to the River Bistro and again the food was fantastic. Well cooked and nicely presented. The service is always friendly so will be going back again soon I hope!
