A contemporary British gastro pub in Vauxhall, The Riverside occupies a picturesque setting by the Thames. Offering a comforting menu of hearty pub classics alongside creative modern dishes, The Riverside boasts an unrivalled al fresco terrace by the river.

Pub favourites on The Riverside menu include Young’s ale-battered haddock and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce, which features alongside inventive and sophisticated recipes like crispy chicken thighs with chorizo, haricot beans, white wine and spring herbs, and roast Atlantic cod with creamed leeks, mussels, samphire and smoked bacon. Easy-picking boards offer a beautifully fresh fisherman’s selection, and a platter of award-winning mini Young’s pies.

A range of continental lagers and award-winning Young’s cask-conditioned ales at The Riverside in London partners an extensive wine list and a variety of inventive cocktails. The paved terrace houses colourful table and chairs and is covered by sweeping canopy umbrellas, while the pub interior is a chic space of leather dining booths, chunky wooden tables and tall river-facing windows.

The Riverside is just a 4-minute walk from Vauxhall Tube Station, and sits inside Hamilton House.

    Absolute shambles. When we booked we asked for a table outside. When we arrived, they couldn't have been less helpful. "Have a look and see if there's a table with your name on it". There wasn't of course, and every table was taken. We asked another waitress and she told us to go inside and look for a table with our name on it. Again, nothing, but we did manage to find a table in the window. We quickly realised that it was going to be difficult to order drinks and virtually impossible to order food as it was so busy, so we left. Abysmal service, nice place to have a drink but forget about food here.

    We live abroad but were in London for Father's day so I booked a table for 7 Sunday lunchtime. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely table with a view over the Thames. Several of us had the Sunday roast and I asked for my beef to be well done. It arrived perfectly cooked all through, the way I like it. There was one vegetarian and her meal was great too. We liked the place so much that just my husband and myself went back another day when we weren't very hungry but had the mini fish and chips which was just the right size for when you need something but aren't starving. Would definitely return when I am back in London.

    I came with a group of about 20 people and we were very well looked after. Food was on time and the service was top class

    We booked for 9 people. The service was very slow, and one of the waiters led us to our table and due to one person arriving ten mins later, left us to it - did not even come by to take any orders for drinks until that person arrived. They struggled to understand what we were ordering due to language barrier (We are English) - and the menu on the website was out of date. The food tasted good - but the service was not that good. We were forgotten quite a bit of the time, with whom we thought was the head waiter - trying to get his attention - he looked our way, we waved and he looked at us, but blatently ignored us.

    We were really pleased with our visit. It was a very informal lunch and we enjoyed the chilled atmosphere. We all went up to order as and when we fancied it and staff were very helpful.

    its a basic pub - the food was fine, the atmosphere was fine - we were happy going here!
