“Menu change please”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

The River Cafe is our 'local' and we use it regularly as treat for our girls, for whom the milk shakes are just brilliant. But on a rare night out, we went to the River Cafe to find exactly the same menu in place for the past 3 years (at least) - and it is the same menu for both lunch and dinner. Whilst the food is good (though not quite so good on this occasion) it would be nice to have a bit of change from the largely pasta-centric dishes. There are only so many times when the usually good liver, bacon, onions and mash will entice me. One new dish a month would be good! The Maeswllch will be opening soon - might be good idea to refresh before some real competition kicks in!

Fantastic venue, lovely staff, great atmosphere. The room was great, clean, tidy. Stunning views. We stayed 2 nights and I cannot recommend it enough. Above a great restaurant and right next to the river Wye. Go!

My fiance brought me here for my birthday meal and i really enjoyed it :) I think they have a very talented chef as the food was amazing. The waitresses were very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

we visited the river care for lunch - incredible fish and chips, best ive ever had. The fish was cooked to perfection, perfect chips too, and the accompanying coleslaw was delicious and the tartare sauce divine. Booked up to stay for one night so we could enjoy more good food and a view of the river. Staff were really friendly. Room was really nice, clean and nicely decorated. Only tiny criticism was that breakfast service wasn't as organised as lunch or dinner. But the quality of the breakfast was fantastic. Really hope to visit again.

Arrived to go kayaking as a group, was advised that the cafe (owned by the same people) do a great breakfast. So we happily made our way next door to sample the breakfast and the coffees. We were a party of around 10 people and we were advised as soon as walked in that they had a large group booking so we must have something quick and easy (!!!).

One of the party wanted a beer instead of coffee and the reply from the waiter was 'you are joking?'. We could not beleive our ears that a waiter had to nerve to question a customers orders.

Totally let down by the appalling customer service at this place.

What a great place. Fantastic food and service. The steaks were awesome and the bros loved the crab thing. Breakfasts hit the spot too.
Rooms very comfortable and clean etc.

Kayak was fun and very easy going although I wasn't allowed a splash desk being a mere 1 star.
Great service picking us up down river.

We , my partner and I, booked a Tuesday evening. From an excellent menu we choose the cod and chips which were excellent followed by coffee on the outdoor patio overlooking the river Wye , on an idyllic summer evening it doesn't get much better
