A pleasant atmosphere, tables are a minimum size and on a quiet night unnecessarily close to each other. I did appreciate being served fresh bread and butter but as it wasn’t listed on the menu I didn’t expect to be charged for it. I didn’t especially enjoy the ham hock terrine and when the accompanying bread arrived burnt I didn’t expect to be charged for some to replace it. The service was very good (though why deliver burnt bread) but I feel adding a 12.5% service charge automatically is cheeky. The half roast chicken was a big portion served on a flat wooden board – I’m not sure that’s especially hygienic and what do you do with the gravy to stop it pouring all over the table? Cost £37 per person

I love the Rivington. They do a mean Bloody Mary and the food is always fantastic. We had yet another great visit last weekend. The service was on point - friendly and quick. Highly recommended - but make sure you book!

Me and my wife live local and this restaurant is the best restaurant experience that you can find in Greenwich. The food is simply amazing and the stuff is super friendly. The cocktail list is immense and super delicious.
I would recommend the burger dish :) great for a Monday evening.

My friend and I went tonight after the cinema as it was next door and handy.

We hadn’t visited the restaurant for a few years so were looking forward to returning. We were beyond disappointed and shocked at the experience we endured tonight.

On arrival we were told to wait at the bar as our table was being prepared but should only be a few minutes. We took the only two chairs free at the bar and waited there. It was awkward as the chairs were positioned by the spot were the staff picked up drinks, staff pushed past to get through, no one served you and you made to feel a real hindrance.

We were kept waiting here for ten minutes and thought about ordering a drink but wrongly assumed any minute now our table would be ready!

In the meantime, more staff rushed through harassed and unhappy and we were frustrated as to what was going on with our table.

It was also disappointing to see another couple of customers seated before us.

Finally we were told our table was ready and to come, though this was interspersed with the same guy showing us walking off elsewhere.

When we were finally seated, and could see partly why the staff had taken so long and were seemingly so stressed - there was a party upstairs along with other tables. We were at least given a minor apology, however this clearly wasn’t for the whole terrible experience as no one offered us anything to make it right.

Then the hostess who had 15 minutes early told us our table was being finished getting ready offered us drinks but we needed to look at the list so she offered us water and for us that. She then returned but didn’t take our drink order. We were incredulous!

By this time, we were so disappointed and shocked and knew things would get much worse judging by what had happened so far - or not, more to the point - that we decided we had to leave. No one even asked us anything when we left which says a lot about the staff and their attitudes.

I’m shocked by the experience and how bad standards have slipped since we last visited and going by tonight’s experience won’t be returning.
