Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have never left a trip advisor review in my life but if I could give 15 stars I would. The owner IS SO LOVELY. My partner and I were in Garrison for the week and went for a drink before dinner, the guiness was...great. And we were then planning to go somewhere else to eat but due to covid places closed very early. The owner Gabrielle was warm and friendly as soon as we walked in. We were having chats with him when he overheard us talking about how the restaurant was closed where we planned to eat. Because it was a Thursday riverside wasn't serving food either (only weekends at this current time) but Gabrielle went out of his way and made us pizza and chips regardless. He didn't charge us and wouldn't take the extra money we tried to leave him. We ended up staying a few hours just talking. I couldn't recommend this warm, friendly and genuine place more. It was very clean, great drinks, all covid procedures were in place and it made you feel right at home. I will go out of my way to come back to this bar, Gabrielle I hope you see this because the next round of drinks will be on us in the future!! Thank you for such a lovely time!! P. S. The pizza was also worth 5 starsMore

Stayed in Garrison for a week unfortunately with the current climate it was only open for 3 days a week Friday to Sunday We had a meal on the Friday and Saturday and both were good... service was a little slow but the owner/barman was...on his own due to staff being off sick so it was understandable all in all we were well looked after and prices were very reasonable Will definitely be backMore

Called for Sunday lunch to The Riverside Bar today with my daughter. So glad we did. Fabulous food at a very reasonable price. The beef would melt in your mouth accompanied by plenty of fresh vegetables. Daughter had salmon which was also fab. Chocolate dessert...to die for. All staff from waitress Edy to Jane & Gabriel had time to chat & make you feel at home. Brilliant service in a spotless family run pub/restaurant. We'll be back, thank you.More

We’ve eaten in this wonderful bar on many occasions and it never, ever disappoints. The premises are pristine...every single element from the furnishings to the bathrooms to the back of bar are maintained to a very high standard and I feel secure in the knowledge...that the kitchen is also immaculate. The food in The Riverside Bar is wonderful...plentiful, tasty, cooked to perfection...so much care and attention is devoted to providing customers with a meal which exceeds expectations. However, the most distinguishing factor of this superb bar is the hospitality - customer service at its very best...the warmest welcome, prompt but relaxed service, time to chat and share a laugh...it’s obvious how much their customers are valued. This is a proper local pub - at the centre of the community and much loved by its many patrons. I cannot recommend The Riverside Bar highly enough for any occasion...it’s like a home away from homeMore

We had a beautiful lunch to celebrate Dad’s birthday. The owner and his team couldn’t have been more wonderful. Beautiful, freshly prepared food and a warm welcome. Exactly what I love on a winter Sunday in Garrison.

My drink is Hennessey Brandy but the only mixer I like is chocolate milk, they don't sell it, so instead of sneaking it in I asked if I could use it, the answer was "if it's not bought on the premises it can't be consumed...on the premises". Oh well for the £1 price of a bottle of chocolate milk, the charity night lost out on the price of a table, raffle tickets, etc., and the bar lost out on a good few Brandy purchases. The owner of this bar has all the personality and warmth of a multi story car park. Never again.More
