Christmas & New Year at The Riverside

Check availability

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 two sittings for lunch between 12 noon and 4pm.  This is a very busy day so book early to avoid disappointment.

Why not come and stay with us over the festive period?  Our rooms are available if you would like a relaxing break away from the chaos of the holiday season and an opportunity to see 2020 in from the peaceful location of Aymestrey.  Country walks and log fires are here to welcome you!  Click here to view our availability and rates.

Join us this New Year’s Eve for our seven-course showcase menu, specially prepared by Andrew Link and his team of chefs.  Then see in the New Year with the locals with a glass of Prosecco at Midnight in our bar.

View all the menus below, and if you would like to make a reservation please call us on 01568 708440 or send us an email.
