I manage to visit the Riverside Inn about twice a year and always enjoy the good quality food and friendly, helpful staff. However the broadband 'cloud' is hopeless. I would be a regular customer at least twice each month if/when a broadband system is installed that works. At £12 spent on lunch each time that would be an extra £264... More

Stopped in for a coffee and breakfast. Was welcomed on arrival and served a really good breakfast, freshly cooked within 10 minutes of ordering. Can't fault any aspect and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

With a small soft play area inside and a larger outside one, this is a great place to take kids for lunch or dinner. The food is good and reasonably priced. Great kids menu and staff are really friendly. That being said, the restaurant is large, so there are areas for those wishing to dine without children as well. Al... More

Food seemed like it had been preprepared and had then reheated. Good choice on menu though a bit pricey for what you get.

Just not enough food on my plate, I ordered the ultimate roast hoping I'd get a good plate full and was still hungry afterwards.

Fortunately I had not read the reviews before I went. The food was typical pub grub but it was nicely presented and the staff were friendly and efficient.
