Another lovely meal at the Riverside. Food is fresh and tasty. Whilst it is not cheap, the setting, quality of food and excellent service means it is worth every penny.

We had a lovely dinner with my husband here in Riverside restaurant. Local fresh seafood wonderfully cooked and served with good wine. Staff was very friendly and knew well their menu in order to give us recommendations. Very enjoyable dinner.

As we were staying in West Bay for a few nights, a meal at the Riverside seemed to be unmissable. From the menu outside, it was clear that somehow we had entered a London price vortex (£9-11 for starters, £20+ for mains). There is an...More

Description
the Riverside Restaurant enjoys a prime location with large picture windows overlooking the river Brit, but that is just one element of it's charm. It's also a pioneer in it's use of local produce to create truly special fish and shellfish dishes - along with alternative meat and vegetarian options which change on a daily basis.
