A fantastic three course dinner beautifully presented. Service was exceptional. Staff were polite. Food was delicious. The restaurant was extremely busy but this did not cause any problems and created a great atmosphere. Very highly recommended.

We visited the Riverstation for the second year in succession for our senior staff meal. The staff were extremely attentive and 100% focused on our needs. The menu had a great choice of meals and the food was top quality without being too fussy. There was a great atmosphere with lots of other diners packing the restaurant, however we did... More

I have been here 2 or 3 times a year for work related dinners. They have always provided great food at reasonable prices. They are also flexible with the way we run our events. Keep up the good work

I booked this restaurant for 70 people for a works leaving doo. We had exclusive access of the upstairs restaurant , which was great. The staff were brilliant and the food was excellent. There was some discussion over the use of the bar before lunch downstairs and we were told we had to use the bar upstairs. This didn't go... More

I booked this Christmas dinner for my committee of 18 and sent the restaurant the menu choices around a week ahead. I also booked some bottles of wine and bottled water . The relaxed atmosphere and wonderful main courses were remarked on and everyone enjoyed themselves. I can recommend the fish dish of cod and beans in particular. The more... More

I used this site when I booked this restaurant. Read the reviews and looked at the pictures. I liked the reviews but what convinced me was the look of the presentation of the food. In combination with the prices, this looked fantastic. I booked a table for 8 to celebrate my wife’s birthday amongst friends and family and The River... More

Arrived for lunch with my business partner and sat at table overlooking the Quay. Great wine list and we settled on a nice Australian Chardonnay from Margaret Vale to start. Moved on to an interesting Tuscan red from one of the trendy "Super Tuscan" producers. We were impressed that the wines had a very reasonable mark up (no rip off... More

Went for dinner and got a 2-course from the Christmas set menu. A bit on the expensive side (£24 for the two courses only), but the presentation of the plates and the quality of the food made it worth while. Definitely recommended for a special occasion.

Had the fixed price lunch. Only had two courses so can't comment on the desserts. But the starter and main were both very delicious and my friends had gorgeous food too. Service was excellent - waited on hand and foot. It was busy and had a lovely buzzy atmosphere, as well as a nice position by the river. Would definitely... More
