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.

    Rather disappointing we were hoping to have the Sunday roast but that had ended at 7pm. We think the ambience is delightful and the service is usually good but the food is not inspiring in fact boring.

    Haven’t been there for about 30 years, what a change, lovely decor, warm and inviting. Celebrating my granddaughters birthday, shown to a very nice table and served quite quickly with drinks, obviously very busy on a Saturday night, but only one waiter! Order was taken, then had to wait a while for food to come, but was very good, unfortunately had to then wait over 20 minutes for plates to be taken and another 20 minutes to order desert. Deserts very nice but again had to wait again for the bill. I fully appreciate that it was very busy, however being a Saturday night having one waiter on shift wasn’t appropriate. The food was very good and in the circumstances the waiter was exceptional.

    Great atmosphere friendly relaxed staff. Liked the lighting over the tables so able to see what you were eating! Had delicious Foccacia for starters and fish pie for main, both excellent and impressive quality at a very good price. Too full for dessert, but maybe next time.

    We eat there quite a bit. Fish and chips are great. They were a bit busy and we had to eat in the bar area which was a bit spoilt because there were some very noisy young children near to us. Staff are young and try hard but still have a little to learn about customer service

    We were very satisfied with the restaurant. The service was attentive and helpful. We had 4 different main courses between us, and they were all excellent, well presented and portion size was good - ie not overwhelmingly large. The sweets were also good, though the apple pie/crumble was very sweet (we mentioned this to the waitress) and although we enjoyed the cheese, it would have been even better had there been a soft cheese alternative (eg Brie) in place of the goat's cheese, which is not to everyone's taste!
    But taken as a whole, definitely worth the 50 mile journey from east and west to meet up and enjoy good food in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere without the feeling that the staff were trying to move us along for the next diners!

    I like the atmosphere in the Riverside , staff are always friendly & attentive. Food is really nice and always well presented couple of slight disappointments was that My glass of prosecco didn’t have much fizz & should have been cooler.
