The girl that served us Rebecca W was very friendly and helpful. She was a good host by making sure that all was ok and that we had everything we needed. That's the only reason I don't complain about the food.

Average food. Appallingly poor service. Waited 40 min for main coarse then a further 30 min for dessert. No apology no offer of discount to make up for poor service. I'd avoid here!!

I visited the Riverside Inn with my cousin for an evening meal when I was back in Dundee last month. It was a Monday evening so the place was fairly empty, but we were warmly and pleasantly welcomed by a waitress and shown to a table. The menu was quality 'Pub Fayre' and we weren't rushed about making our choice.... More

The Riverside in is a great place for both families with or without young children. The play areas (indoor and out) are great for the kids and there is plenty of room for those who want to have a quiet meal.

Great for a family meal. Food was pretty average but large quantities and good value. The service was very good and it had a nice atmosphere.
