Great casual dinning, good location, many areas to sit and eat from information, outside or formal dining. Worth a visit.

Have attended this local icon over it's many metamorphasis from The Rivervale Hotel right through to it's present life as the Empire Bar. The staff, service and food are all brilliant. The atmosphere is great and there's always something happening. Will definitely be back again

Making a booking was very easy with the online booking option that actually does work and an email confirming my booking was quickly sent. It was pleasing that it was so easy to book a table. The decor of the Empire Bar is lovely, it has a range of dining options, inside and outside at the front and rear of... More
