Had a wonderful roast meal with friends. The other meals we saw go past also looked great.

Set on the banks of the River Trent, The Riverside is a wonderfully comfy pub with polished wooden floors and modern décor. Settle down for gourmet all-day dining, or take a drink from the bar outside to the al fresco patio area and enjoy the tranquil setting.

The Riverside menu prides itself on showcasing traditional British flavours, made with locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Start the day off with meat and veggie fry ups, as well as lighter options like avocado and poached eggs on toasted sourdough. Later in the day, there are small plate dishes like pit-smoked ox cheek, chipotle chicken wings and crab and sweetcorn fritters, as well as larger home-style favourites of steak and ale pie, fish and chips, and succulent steaks.

A popular Sunday menu at The Riverside in Newark serves up slow-cooked meats with all the trimmings, while for pudding there is white chocolate cheesecake and real dairy ice creams. Up at the bar, cask ales and international beers are on tap, while the wine list boasts carefully selected vintages, including dessert varieties.

Also offering children's menus, The Riverside is a peaceful, family-friendly pub. Newark North Gate Rail Station is a 12-minute walk away.

    Had a very enjoyable meal, very leisurely as we had a meet up with other family members. We were all impressed by the friendly helpful staff and quality of the food. The restaurant had a good feel and we all agreed that it was a very nice place for future get togethers. Afterwards we enjoyed a walk through the woodland beside the river.

    We had Sunday roast and gammon
    The Yorkshire pud was cold and chewy and the rest was warm
    The gammon was very salty and the chips were only cooked on the outside and tasted powdery
    Not a meal to remember

    We used to eat there every week but less so now as the food doesn’t seem as consistently good anymore. i.e the halloumi burger had very little halloumi in it compared to a previous visit. The spinach and cheese pie is bland.
    What really really bothers me though is when the wait staff clean tables. They spray on to the table from at least 12 inches off the table, then wipe. Do you have any idea how far that spray travels in the air to other tables and settles on the food people are eating? I don’t want to consume table cleaner thank you very much.
    Also the last time we sat nearer the bar area, the noise from the guy slamming cutlery in the respective containers after washing was unbelievable. It completely stopped our conversation as we couldn’t compete. We had to leave it was so annoying. They seemed completely oblivious to customers trying to relax and talk.
    The experience isn’t one to look forward to anymore so we’ve started looking for other places to dine. Shame really. That was our ‘go to’ place and we travelled 13 miles so it’s not like it’s our local.

    Lovely food, good service, attentive staff. My only pick would be that my menu choice Crispy Duck salad, was a Chinese style crispy duck, which although I thoroughly enjoyed, it wasn’t the duck breast with crispy skin that I was expecting and the menu doesn’t describe the dish.

    Food was lovely. Very good value and all served very timely. Staff polite and friendly. My partner was very impressed with his fish and said the batter was light and crispy.

    All 3 dishes were well prepared and presented - a pleasure to eat and enjoy. Only 2 items were less that excellent: the plates on which 'Fish and Chips' were served were too small - the fish overlapped the sides by a considerable margin - making the dish rather messy to eat; the music was too loud to enable comfortable conversation around the table.
