    We spent a very enjoyable evening at the Riverside, with a varied menu, friendly service and a welcoming atmosphere. All the food was delicious, and we experimented successfully with unfamiliar dishes as well as choosing delicious versions of more predictable ones. The rhubarb shrub aperitif and the nettle cake dessert were particularly interesting. The portions are carefully sized and lead to a very satisfying meal with each course fully appreciated. We visit the area periodically and always try to include the Riverside in our itinerary. We are never disappointed. Thank you.

    First time in a very long time I have wholly enjoyed a restaurant/meal. Been to a few ‘fine’ restaurants in past weeks and each has been disappointing - Riverside was not. Food great, atmosphere lovely, staff exceptional. Difficult to put finger on what makes a difference - whatever it is/was, Riverside works for me.

    Delicious supper with excellent service to celebrate a Birthday. Enjoyed the Herefordshire snails starter and the duck, beef and cod mains were all outstanding. Staff were attentive, good humoured and friendly. Birthday treats after dinner was a nice touch. Will definitely be coming again. Many thanks.

    This was our second visit during our fortnight’s stay on holiday in the area. It was so good the first time we visited that we had to come back to see if it was as good. We were not disappointed. Everything was as good as the first visit. The staff were lovely and friendly and service was attentive and efficient. Food and drinks were delicious. Everything prepared and presented beautifully. Would highly recommend.

    Delicious food. The bread was lovely, all warm. Snails and sausage we're delicious as canapes. We had the duck and fish. Both cooked well and great tasting. Blue cheese ice cream for dessert was a particularly highlight. Service was friendly and easy going. Just what we wanted from a lunch in our way to holiday. Help and understanding with our 4mth old was very welcome.

    Having recommended riverside to my friends and booked the table for them it was disappointing to hear that they would not go back. The feedback was that the cocktail drink was not mixed properly and did not taste nice. The canapés were too difficult to eat and the main course of fish, although well cooked was in a sauce that was far too salty. They remarked that the ambience was nice and service good.

    The food here is always imaginative, beautifully prepared and the menu, although not vast (thank goodness - an extensive menu is always a bit suspicious imho), has sufficient choice. One Coeliac in our party was served, without the batting or raising of an eyebrow, with a totally GF lunch, including Yorkshire pudding. The waiting staff are efficient and charming,, in spite of it being Mothering Sunday, for which they were, inevitably, very busy. Smashing place!

    A beautiful restaurant setting where we enjoyed the best Sunday roast we’ve ever had. Every aspect of the plate was delicious, perfectly cooked, and special. The service was faultless and the waitress made an extra effort to serve a birthday dessert as we were celebrating three birthdays. A meal that will be fondly remembered, my only suggestion would be to add candles to the tables in the back dining room as it was a bit too dark.
