The Riverside is a small restaurant, but nonetheless a very good one! Very high quality, traditional options that are made special, very nice presentation and a friendly staff. Reservation is a must!

Very nice, small restaurant. Seats 28 people. Very good food, freshly cooked so be prepared to wait a bit for it. Very nice waiting staff, polite, knowledgable but unobtrusive. Food was piping hot and cooked to perfection. Local produce.

Came here on a damp Saturday evening. The restaurant was not full, quite a few empty tables. I had booked to be on the safe side though. Was shown to table quickly, friendly greeting. I had the scotch egg, salmon and cranachan. All courses were...More

If I remember correctly it was between £18-£23, not cheap but worth it in my opinion. The food is very nice and the staff are helpful and friendly.
