“Best Hospitality Meal Ever”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We took advantage of lower prices to book a hospitality package to see Sunderland play MK Dons. The meal at the river view was surprisingly good. The champagne on arrival was a pleasant surprise followed by a very tasty Chicken Caeser but the highlight was a beautifully prepared Rack of lamb. The meet was cooked to perfection, a hint of pink in the middle a rosemary and minted herb crust and crunchy vegetables in Parma ham. We find hospitality food is often good bet never special until now. The riverview has just raised the bar.

“Birthday sunday lunch”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Went for my wifes birthday with rest of family for sunday lunch.
Bookings are taken from twelve till about three i think, and you turn up at stadium main entrance to be told where to go by the friendly security staff.On your way upstairs to the brasserie you pass all the football memorabillia of the football club,a must for any football fans.
The menu is a traditional sunday lunch with four choices plus a vegaterian option.we had two young children in the party and the staff were very accomodating and done smaller portions of the main dish but there is also a kids menu on offer.
The food is a very high standard. but not in large quantities for some maybe, and was served at the table by helpful and friendly staff who were great with the kids.
You also get a choice of starters and yummy desserts.The cost for the three courses is
£16
This is our fourth visit and would highly recommend it, especially for a special occasion or treat.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 18 November 2012 via mobile

Our party of 6 ate here after a recommendation from a family friend. We didn't know it was here (Sunderland afc ground).
There was a selection of starters-soup, bbq chicken legs, melon and Parma ham and onion bhaji. The soup was delicious and served with a seeded bun and butter. The starters were brought promptly.
The main course was beautifully cooked! I had the beef roast with a giant home made Yorkshire served with cabbage and bacon, roast potatoes, mash, broccoli, carrot and swede mash and pea shoots. Others had the chicken and pork roasts which went down very well. The veggie choice was a cheese and onion tartlet.
The puddings we tried were apple pie and custard, dark chocolate torte and cheesecake. Yum!!
To end we had coffee and chocolates.
Value is superb for the quality of food; 3 courses for £15.95 or 2 courses for £12.95. The staff were very attentive and friendly too. Will definitely be going back!
