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.

My friend & I booked Sunday lunch at Riverside on 28th July.We were both very disappointed with our meals.Our first meal was cold & after complaining we were given fresh meals which weren’t much better.We were both offered free desserts but declined the offer.One main meal was deducted from our bill.I have visited Riverside on many occasions but don’t think I will again as I was very disappointed.

We booked a table of six for ourselves and four friends. Even though we arrived 10/15 minutes early our table was ready, so we went straight through and the waiter took our drinks order. The drinks soon arrived along with water for our table, we were then left to look through the menus. Once we had all chosen the waiter took our orders, a couple of us had pies, one had fish and chips, one super food salad and also the wild bore sausages. The food wasn’t too long before it arrived, extremely fresh and tasty and we all had clean plates! The staff are very friendly and helpful and the service was great , even though the restaurant was full . We have eaten here on many occasions and would definitely recommend it to others, worth booking a table even at lunch time as it’s a very popular restaurant.

Sunday lunch with my husband we both had the roast beef which was excellent just wish they did a smaller cheaper desert as would like to finish off with something but not a full blown £6.95 desert

We had a lovely lunch at The Riverside - the food was tasty and well presented. Service was quick and discrete. The chicken pie was full of meat and sauce with vegetables cooked to perfection, unlike some restaurants where the vegetables are still almost raw. Will definitely re-visit!
