This restaurant seems nice and offers a reasonably good atmosphere. An attractive menu and fair, if a bit high, pricing. Sadly, we found the quality of food was lacking and not as quick nor as warm as we would have liked. Some smallish changes could...More

Description
An eclectic British pub, The Riverside offers a modern British menu, showcasing the best in seasonal produce. Hearty mains and wholesome weekend brunches are bolstered by a menu of old school desserts, while the bar at The Riverside offers the stock of real ales Young's pubs have become famous for. Chunky wood tables and a spirit and pump-lined bar make this a popular spot for relaxed and informal all-day dining.
