We are regular visitors to the Riverfront and couldn't recommend it more. Service is always excellent and food of a very high standard. The menu boasts a wide selection of different dishes and the bar interior is warm and cosy.

Lovely food, lovely atmosphere, lovely staff...just what we needed for a night way from the twins!! What I loved was that the menu was different from the other nearby restaurants and was updated from the last time we visited.
