Since taking over the venue, we have been working hard to transform the building into a truly special pub, restaurant and coffee house.

Whatever reason you may have for visiting us – a healthy or hearty breakfast, a coffee with home-baking beside our wood-burning stove or downstairs with the kids in the play area, fantastic food with family in our restaurant, a glass of wine or a local beer with friends in our bar or on the riverside terrace – we assure you of a friendly welcome from staff who care.

Please let us know when you book if you are bringing your dog and we will reserve a suitable table.

The Riverside really is our dream come true and we look forward to welcoming you through its doors.

Lovely cosy and relaxed place to eat. The service was great. Staff very friendly and attentative. Wide variety of food to chose from Mushroom and brie soup was really tasty. 2 of the party would recomend the Shin of beef which they said was excellent. I had Salmon on crushed potatoe which was really lovely. There was a good selection of vegetarian meals too. We booked and dined at 2.30pm and were lucky to get seated near the fire and it wasn't too busy.
Would definately recommend this place to eat.

Very busy, glad that we booked. Generous and tasty meals. Kindly seated us bedside the fire to avoid draughts and chased us up when we forgot one of our bags.

Great service and great food. Staff friendly and attentive. Restaurant was fairly busy on a Sunday afternoon but not noisy, nor had it the feeling of being crowded. Good adherence to COVID measures. Our party’s 3 dogs enjoyed the experience too.

Little bit slow to seat us initially but, really good food and cocktails. Our table was slightly squashed against the wall due to a larger party but, minor points that didn’t detract from a great night. Staff were friendly and attentive plus they had a wee bit of banter too.

Service excellent and food very tasty although a little pricey for a pub (£1 extra for a slice of cheese and another £1 for a slice of bacon on a burger).

Caught up with a friend over lunch at the Riverside. It was a wet Wednesday afternoon outside but a lovely cosy lunch inside with a good of choice of food and drinks on the menu. The food was served by friendly helpful staff and was delicious. Coffee and cake to finish off a lovely afternoon in a perfect place.

Lovely meal with 2 friends yesterday. Food was excellent, no problem to swap out chicken for fish in the (delicious!) Keto Bowl. Very accommodating when I phoned to request and later arrival, excellent service, and no desire to rush us from our table. Great afternoon, thanks.

Really poor service with meals coming out 5 minutes apart. Fly in the vinegar which we noticed once we had all used it. Gave it to the lady who was running things and no apology, nothing.
Food was average and expensive. Will not return
