The service here is good but the food is very average. We went for two courses main and dessert. I had chicken which had ample portions with vegetables aplenty. The source was a bit overwhelming and the chicken was fine but not special. The beef was not great according to my colleagues. The dessert is from a trolley, mine was... More

We visited last night as a group of 10 for our daughter's 18th birthday. The restaurant is a reasonable size and the staff were very good. The bar staff brought the drinks over which was very nice and the service there was excellent. You ordered your food in the bar and then when we were ready shown to our table... More

We stopped here for lunch back in August when the sun was still around, and had a lovely meal and drink in the garden. The service was great, and we had a good chat with the waiter about Wirral Gin. The food was fairly priced, and I'd fully recommend a visit if you're in the area.

Went with the family for New Year's Eve lunch and a bit underwhelmed if I'm honest. Food was ok but expected better and service was a bit shoddy. Lots of items (wine & water glasses) left on the table leaving little room for the meal plates and side dishes of vegetables. Sauce used for the black pudding stack bore an... More

New Years Eve was booked for dinner and we were very disappointed. The gentleman who took our order had a complete lack of personality and was surly. Looking at the menu it appeared to be very good but unfortunately the food was very disappointing. The vegetables were over cooked and once cut into turned to water. I suspect the duck... More

Nearly 30 family members came from Wales to stay in the Riverhill hotel, lovely welcome from the staff.Rooms spacious and lovely and clean tea,coffee facilities, iron and hairdryer. Variety of cereals,fresh fruit and cooked breakfast, we didn't have evening meal as we were going to a wedding. Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again

We've dined at the Riverhill on many occasions over the 30 years and see it as somewhere to celebrate a special occasion. We were very disappointed with this visit. We found the service poor. 7 of us sat down to our starters, but only 6 arrived. There was a 5 minute difference in the last one arriving by which all... More

We not only dined at the restaurant here, but also stayed in the hotel. We dined in the month of late October, I'm guessing it's a low time, and found we didn't have to book a table. However if your group is more than two, I'd reserve - just in case. The food is top notch. It's a full linen... More
