5 Stars, 10/10, Grammy awards too. I dined at Rye River Cafe today. My Covid certificate was checked upon arrival, which for me being high risk was such a welcomed adherence. The girls, what can I say, their attention to detail, customer service and friendly...approach was a breath of fresh air. The french toast delicious, the coffee equally fab, I can’t fault it. I have worked in some of the worlds most established 5 star hotels, the customer experience and the ambience is matched. I will return, thank you.More

My wife and I stopped in to the cafe for breakfast today. We were greeted and had our paperwork checked by a charming and friendly young woman. The food itself was freshly cooked and a very tasty. The quality of the Irish breakfast was excellent....The cafe is bigger that you might think from the outside and is nicely finished in a relaxed style. The meal was great value for money and the friendly service was excellent.More

Amazing versatile menu. Delighted with Rye River moving to Kilcock golf club. My 11 month boy loves the soup and they even gave him some toast for it at no extra cost. Refillable water is a huge bonus. Don't be put off by it being...a golf club. Everybody was so welcoming on our family's 3 tripsMore

A young brunette gent around 5 8”, didnt catch his name, was an absolutely extraordinary waiter. He gave us top par service as we were having our lunch on this fine summers day. We decided to give him a hefty tip although we didn’t think...this would suffice to our wonderful service so I’m leaving this review to persuade you youngsters to visit this wonderful place :) Also the music added to the atmosphere 11/10More

I recently discovered that rye river cafe does offer a take away service until 8:30 pm. I had to wait about 15 min for my food to be ready but didn’t mind that on a Saturday night, better to wait than to have your food...waiting in containers. Staff is very nice, you can wait in your car and they bring you the food when ready. The burger was tasty and with a very generous portions of chips, the steak ciabatta was delicious, meat tender and good quality with nice pepper sauce. Recommended.More

Lovely little cafe, located just in the centre of the town. Free car park right next to it! We stopped there for quick lunch, just random choice on the way home really, but it was absolutely great one!! We got the table outside, very nice...and cosy. The cafe gives you very great vibe, very relaxing. Food is excellent, well cooked, very tasty with beautiful presentation and you don't have to wait long. Coffee very tasty and once again, the presentation is spot on! Overall, I'm very happy with my visit, it was great choice. Highly recommended!More
