Nothing is too much trouble for this pub/restaurant. My wife is gluten intolerant and they could not have done more to accommodate both our friend and my wife's dietary needs. The food, atmosphere and service could not have been better. We will definately visit again.

The Riva Seafood & Steak Restaurant itself sits opposite the River Derwent on the main A6 It's has a beautiful stone exterior and the raised patio area is the perfect spot on a sunny day to enjoy a cold drink, good food and watch the world go by. Inside there is a small but well stocked bar that offers a variety of ever changing guest beers and cosy little seating and dining areas to enjoy a drink or our varied menu and on cold crisp Derbyshire days open log fires. We are open daily from 11am and lucky enough to be able to source some of our food from the plentiful larder within the surrounding area. We are family run and the Fox family looks forward to seeing you soon.
