Serving exquisitely presented, modern British food in a family-friendly setting, The RiverHill Restaurant is an independent local favourite. Afternoon tea and Sunday Lunch are very popular, and an elegant menu is served at lunch and dinner.

The RiverHill menu favours scallops with the option to have them with minted pea puree with black pudding croquettes or in garlic butter with ciabatta. Other popular starters include the classic asparagus and Parma ham with a poached egg and Parmesan.

Dover sole with French fries, prawns, shrimp and lemon butter is a popular main course, as are the selection of steaks. For pudding, guests are invited to choose from the selection of sweet treats on the trolley, or opt for the cheese board.

The seasonally-changing menu is accompanied by a substantial wine list to complement every dish. Birkenhead Central Train Station is a half-hour walk or a 9-minute drive from The RiverHill in Wirral, and the bright lights of Liverpool are also close by.

    Disappointing. Under the previous owners the restaurant was exceptional, good food, excellent service, and a lovely dining experience. Under the present owners standards have slipped. Small things matter. Butter used to be served as curls at room temperature. Small packets straight out of the fridge that won't spread isn't quite the same. Not having a sweet trolley isn'tquite the same. Being served portions rather than being asked how much or little you want isn't quite the same. The setting is still very pleasant, and drinks before and after the meal in the lounge is very pleasant, to the overall dining experience is now very average.

    Staff very pleasant, efficient but not pushy. The food was good and well presented. We ate early owing to a bit of trouble with the auto booking system which would only offer us a 6pm table but as it was bank holiday it was not really a problem.

    Excellent meal and service. Dining area and facilities most attractive and well kept. Not many other diners on the evening ( Tuesday in August, so not surprising, perhaps ), but ambience still agreeable.

    We hadn't been to the Riverhill for some time and it was interesting to see the changes in decor and furnishings. However, we were greeted like old friends and the food was excellent

    Sunday evening dinner. Service was very welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed our aperitif in the bar before dinner with a good choice of gone to choose from. Positive criticism the prawn cocktail I feel would have been better covered in a sauce the prawns themselves were quite tasteless, maybe less prawns but better quality it was a good idea with the bloodmary shot.The rest of starters were very enjoyable. Maybe jugs of gravy could be put on the table for people to serve them selves, the beef was lovely as were the Yorkshire puddings. There was a good choice of desserts and my daughter really enjoyed her cheese plate. We will be back for Sunday lunch again and hopefully as the restaurant develops for evening meals also.

    Everything was nice except the beef was very tough, and the apple crumble wasn’t very nice,felt we were rushed as if they wanted the table for the next guests.

    I visited the restaurant with my partner, and the pair of us couldn't have been happier.
    Right from the start we were warmly greeted, and made very comfortable. We were given ample enough time to order our food, whilst all our drinks orders were attended to very efficiently.
    I ordered the braised pork belly, which was nothing short of perfect, whilst my partner ordered the lamb shank, which she thought was excellent. All of our dishes were cooked to perfection, and I've honestly never seen food presented so beautifully.
    We didn't have to wait long at all between courses. I can't think of anything bad to say at all. Thank you very much, to all the staff at the Riverhill.
