We always have a delicious meal at J.B. Rivers. They have a big menu and there is something to suit everyone's taste buds and cravings. Their service is always friendly and relatively quick. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all equally delicious!

Sorry this is not for me. There are many options so why choose this one? The food is OK but cant say the same for anything else!

We visit that place at least once a month. The food is good even if it is not special. The service is quick and super friendly. Typically that is our restaurant of choice when we go to the cinemas.

Food average, but good size portions - very pricey. Ordered half portion chicken liver pasta, not to be repeated. Kids loved Ferrero Rocher milkshakes

Was scared I would die of dehydration waiting to place an order. I was a massive regular here and sadly not been here since April 2014. Now.... Sadly couldn't go there again :(
