“Very accomodating...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Fantastic homemade locally produced food at great prices and welcome children until 10pm (unlike other so called 'family' friendly eateries in Helensburgh). The chicken Milanase and the beef goulash are not to be missed :)

You will not be disappointed.

Very friendly and attentive staff.

“Fab food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Food here is surprisingly good...freshly cooked and even home made chips! How often to you find that?? Lovely quality and well cooked pasta, chicken and burgers. Great attitude from staff. Starters include lovely rosemary focaccia bread... Main courses around £8 so great value for family meal out. Highly recommended.

“Generally enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

A good bar where the staff are usually quick to serve you and the food is of decent bar standard. They try quite hard to keep the quality away from the fryer and usually succeed, along with the different entertainment on during the week, it's normally a good night.

“Average food, good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

We choose to go to the Riverbank as their website said it was Mexican night on a Monday. When we turned up the menu was there normal menu and not mexican (although it still said Mexican Monday on the back). The menu is fairly ordinary pub grub and was fairly average when it arrived. Bit of a disappointment all round apart from the staff were very pleasant.
