La comida muy rica, el pollo con salsa de champiñones y espinacas espectacular, el ambiente muy agradable , mesas con manteles, el servicio amante pero un poco despistado las bebidas casi las traen al final de la comida

We absolutely loved dining at the River Grille Bristol on Saturday Night. We were celebrating my Fathers birthday and he absolutely loved it too. Staff were extremely attentive, the live piano music was a extra special touch and the food choice was great for meat-eaters and vegetarian options. Price of food was appropriate for food quality and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Location was lovely and atmosphere busy but comfortable. Will be visiting again.

Went for afternoon tea and it was as near perfect as could be. Great location, lovely staff and really wonderful food. Everything was fresh and nearly everything was utterly divine! Only teeny tiny flaws were coffee walnut cake a little dry and peach (?) parfait somewhat bland, but all the other treats more than made up for these fussy points!
