    Food was delicious, bit disappointed in the table choice though. Had booked through Bookatable a few weeks ago for ease but may be thought we would not turn up? Was offered table in corner which looked a bit squashed or high table which was okay but this is normally used as an over spill for walk ins. Otherwise food and service could not be faulted. Would probably book by phone next time.

    My favourite eating place. As usual every course was scrumptious. I really cannot fault River Cafe from the food, the service and the ambience.
    Always first rate.a nd excellent value.
