We have eaten here a number of times, but I was horrified to discover on our last visit that they fry in beef dripping. Not eating meat, this has come as a shock and disappointment to us and we sadly won't be coming back. The fish and chips are really good quality, so I feel I am being fair with... More

Lovely fish and chip restaurant. I think it is seriously one of the best fish and chip meals I have had - the batter was light and crispy, and also no skin or bone. The only down side was the missing salad garnish, but was a minor point. Only £7.95 for a really generous portion of cod and chips.

Delicious fish and chips as either takeaway or to eat in the restaurant. Everything seems to be cooked fresh as it was piping hot. Generous portions and good value. Would recommend to anyone. Nice place for lunch in Stamford.

Tried this restaurant having found our original choice of Italian closed for refurbishment. We were not disappointed, freshly cooked fish n chips in clean, pleasant surroundings, glad I went for the regular portion of fish as it was more than enough with the chips, all cooked in dripping and served by friendly staff. It more than made up for the... More

I always take the time for a visit to the Riverside. Even if I have other dinner plans I will make time and space to squeeze in a peice of haddock from here

I am shocked at the last review on here. I have been going to this restaurant for ten years now. This person is a complete liar in everything he says. It made me very angry. The best fish and chips for miles. The potions are huge. Lovely white flaky fish chips to die for and as they serve mushy peas... More
