We recently visited The Riverside Hotel for a last minute break away. It isn't actually too far from home but we'll certainly be visiting again when we want to get away for a night or 2. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, the food at both dinner and breakfast was delicious and the room was lovely.

Weddings every Saturday take preference over guests. Room not always cleaned and one day no towel change and bed not made. Menu choices are great but there are many dishes NEVER available. You will NEVER see the manager as he lives upstairs like a recluse ! One morning no breakfast as there was no staff !

We were a group of 4 who dropped in for an early lunch on a Wednesday. Outside there is also a large garden with plenty of tables which overlooks the river, it looked a lovely place to sit but unfortunately it was too cold to be outside on the day we were there. Inside it has been very tastefully refurbished... More
