This was the first bar & meet up point for an organised Halloween 👻 Night costume party/pub crawl, the venue itself was decently situated & had been decorated/trimmed up for the Halloween event so I couldn't honestly say what the decor & layout usually look like. The atmosphere was excellent & the majority of the staff members were polite &... More

I am amazed a big company like Riley's have allowed standards to drop like this. Hardly any cues to play with, what there was were in poor condition. Floors sticky. Smelly. Very dirty. Snooker cloths stained and ripped. But on the plus side they were painting the toilet door! As if that makes the place better. The place is a... More

Attended an excellent event held in the private bar upstairs held by Eclipse Sports Promotions to celebrate the final match at Upton Park. Staff & food were both excellent.

Good place to watch sports or play ping pong/pool. Service was just okay. Nice to place to go with a group. Not really great for a date night. Had the fish and chips which wasnt pretty good. All in all, its your basic sports bar, nothing facy.

Horrendously expensive, staff are rude, food is average. Only thing saving the place is that there is a lot of sport on

First time to visit this bar. I wanted to watch an Italian Serie A game which the Rileys advertised in their web site. Had to pay a non refundable deposit which I did not really like but if I wanted to watch the game, I had not much choice. When we arrived we were seated in a table which had... More

Watched three NFL games here on Thanksgiving, and although our view of the tvs from the booth was excellent the service at the table was often slow. We ordered plenty of food throughout the evening, and whilst it was ok it seemed thrown together and not particularly good quality. Would come here again, but avoid the Nachos!

Thank Mike0210
