Christmas and New Year
at The Riverside

If you are planning your office Christmas party or a family get-together, here at The Riverside we have a festive party menu which should please everyone!  For parties of 6 to 40, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

On Christmas Day we are offering lunch which is served from 12noon - this is a very busy day so book early to avoid disappointment. 

Our six beautifully refurbished rooms are also available over the Christmas holiday period - if you would like a relaxing night away from the chaos of the holiday season - enjoy the peaceful location of The Riverside in the heart of the Lugg Valley.  Country walks, log fires and mulled cider are here to welcome you!

On New Year's Eve we are offering our normal tasting menu.  If you would like to make a reservation over the Christmas holidays, please call us on 01568 708440 or send us an email.  All menus are listed below:

We would like to thank you all for a brilliant, yet very filling, menu for our anniversary, the best meal yet...

Lovely location. We have been here a couple of times and the menu is very good. I had the beetroot salad and it is delicious and the service is quick too!

Phantastic food. Dinner was great. Smoked belly pork was astounding. Mutton was delicious. Blue cheese ice cream a bit out of the ordinary but amazing.

It is great to see somewhere so committed to using local produce, but most importantly making it so good to eat - we could happily have ordered every option on the menu!

The menu was inventive without being outré and each course was a delight with well thought out and interesting flavour combinations making beautifully balanced dishes.

The attentiveness, professionalism and general atmosphere of calm (even when busy!) displayed by all the staff was lovely, and all in a beautiful location. My vegetarian diet was more than amply catered for with a bespoke choice of three mains and lovely veggie sausages for breakfast. The Hayloft accommodation and extra care you show to furry guests is touching and sincere. If Molly, our dog, could speak, I am sure she would give you all a resounding thumbs (paws) up!
