We had to approach the staff after 20 minutes to ask them to take our order. The food was average but items that were described on the menu were missing from one of our plates. The place has a nice aesthetic but the staff need training or guidance in customer service. There’s no point in showing customers to their seats and then ignoring them.

The service was not the quickest but covid I am sure had a part to play in that. It was definitely Understaffed but the staff who were in worked their socks off to keep everything flowing as good as they could. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend the food to anyone.

The food was not up to standard. Don’t know what was in the sauce for the prawn cocktail but it was too much chilli? Too hot!! No salmon in the seafood grill when told that was in it. Disappointed

My wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed our meal although we were struggling to finish it due to the generous portion. There was a lad and a young 22 year old girl who served us and and can say they are a credit to your company The hotel is excellent. We will be back soon 👍

After the disappointment of that we ordered our meals. The fish was very bland. Batter was quite greasy. My friend was charged £11.95 just for the macaroni. Was really surprised that price didnt include chips or potatoes or garlic bread. Never been to a restaurant where it hasnt before. We were both disappointed which was a shame as we both enjoy going out for lunch

Menu and offers didn’t match the ones advertised on the website. (Tapas not available). Had to send the haggis starter back as was cold. None of the food coming out the kitchen was particularly hot and the chips were a bit soggy. Sat without drinks for an extended period of time as the waiting staff (clearly understaffed for the number of tables) were rushed off their feet. Waited at the end of the meal to try and order a dessert and more drinks but eventually gave up.

We sat in seated area after meal where we enjoyed a few drinks. Maybe some background music would be advantageous to more privacy

This time the menu had seemed to be reduced by quite alot so quite disappointed to not find some of my favourites. Staff pleasant and food good for what i ordered.

So we ended up having something else from the restricted menu. Pretty bad practice not updating website in my opinion false advertising. I had steakpie which came in a bowl not a plate which is very disappointing I don’t like that steakpie should always be on a plate. We will not be back for a while.

Brunch Menu advertised on the Confirmation email, but no longer serve it?? Apparently, there are new Managers and new Chefs! They have been notified of this error on several occasions, but it has been left to the Staff serving to explain. Not good enough! Despite this, I would go back if Management get their act together

On checking the different menu,I asked where the regular menu was with options for brunch etc. We were told there was a new chef and didn't like that menu. The choice of light bites,was a mix and we chose filled sandwiches. I chose wholemeal and 2 others chose white bread.Our waiter appeared and confirmed was brown bread ok.15 mins later,someone else appeared.They only had brown bread,mo wholemeal or white.After 25mins ,we were served our sandwiches.Very poor timing. Sorry to say,we will consider visiting somewhere else for our regular meet up once a month.

Staying in the hotel for two nights was a great break away however the bed was a bit ropey on one side felt like we were rolling down a hill .

When we got our dinner we weren’t offered any other condiments. And the servers avoiding going near any tables so we couldn’t ask. We sat with our empty plates for ages after being noticed by ALL members of staff and not one came to clear our plates or ask if we wanted anything else. The restaurant was empty so no need for this at all. I’ve been before and loved it but this has put me right off. We weren’t offered money off or even sincere apology after bringing it up while paying the bill.

The staff were polite to speak to but seemed distracted even though it didnt seem to be particularly busy. All staff were wearing masks which i was pleased to see. The food wasnt up to its usual high standard. The fish was rather small and there was no side salads with the dishes like past meals we have had here and the chips had all been salted and im not a great lover of salt id have liked to have been given the choice. The cocktail menu had definetely been reduced. The dessert on the childrens meal was described as strawberry ice cream with marshmallows. However a rather strange mixture arrived. If this had been my 1st experience at the Riverside i wouldnt say i would be back however i have had a good few 5 star experiences previous to this and would not judge them on what i concider to be just an off night. I would still recommend a visit to the Riverside.

Prawn cocktail was very basic and unimaginative. Sauce was bland. We both ordered steaks - one medium, one medium rare. They both were cooked medium and were very greasy. As was everything else on the plate - 2 mushrooms, 3 onion rings, half a tomato and undercooked chips. Overpriced at £26 each too. Wouldn’t go for a special meal - can get far nicer food for the price.
