We’d already heard that The Riverside was good for families and hearing about the offer of “2 for £12” at the Sunday Carvery totally sealed the deal – we booked in for New Year’s Day!
The welcoming staff promptly seated us by French doors overlooking the balcony with river views. Shame it was pouring with rain, the views must be stunning in better weather. We turned down the chance of a starter and headed straight to the carvery.
The carvery station is manned by the chef who gave generous slices of the beef, pork and turkey plus a Yorkshire pudding and stuffing ball. Alongside was an excellent self-serve selection of roasties and vegetables (cheesy cauliflower my favourite) plus gravy, sauces and numerous other accompaniments including the BEST pork crackling I’ve ever had!!! The kids loaded up their plates and so did we.
The gateaux on the dessert table all looked delicious but (sadly) the portions were so generous that we simply didn’t have space, maybe next time.
Best of all came the bill! The carvery offer is currently adults 2 for £12 and kids 2 for £6. Only £26 for hearty grub and drinks really is hard to beat surely?
It’s definitely worth pre-booking, we spied Reserved signs on each and every one of the tables. With a big thumbs up from the kids, we’ll be back for sure….
