Our beef was full of fat on our Sunday roast, not the standard we have been used to on our other visits. It was my husbands birthday meal with family. The staff were attentive and friendly and the rest of the meal was pretty good, but I couldn't believe the piles of fat on everyone's plates, and trying to cut... More

A pleasantly decorated restaurant with tables inside and out, integrated with the theatre/cinema on the quayside right by the station. Some Thai influence detectable on the menu. Lightly cooked bits of squid with crunchy cubes of water melon, pea shoots and occasional chilli slices was an attractive starter as were the prawns with sweet chilli dip. A rib eye steak... More

What a fantastic evening held here. The staff were friendly and professional. The menu was excellent and food was well presented and fully and flavour. The wine served with dinner was ideal and my new favourite. Happy to return and recommend.

Close to car parking and easy to access the cinema has a good range of drinks/eats for the showing and shows most of the latest films. It is very popular locally and you can book in advance. Does cater for children's birthday parties and my daughter absolutely loved the ice cream. There is an ice cream hut adjacent and you... More

The Riverside Theatre is a local treasure. It is unique, unlike the modern cinema complexes which offer the same facility and the same films the length and breadth of the country. The theatre, which serves as a theatre for live performances, live screenings of other performances, and as a cinema is a source of entertainment much valued by the local... More

It thus has returned to a quality local cinema which is a wonderful treat to visit and watch a film. It now hold a variety of unique events with well... More

This place is a real treasure, went to see The BFG great local cinema. Served by a real person who gave us real tickets, popcorn, snacks & drinks available. If you're wanting to wine and dine before or after the show/film the riverside restaurant serves delicious food. Seats in cinema are comfortable and for couples there are couple seats in... More
