Restaurant description

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.

    Booked for family supper- really relaxing atmosphere- food excellent quality with lots of choice. Service also excellent- friendly but efficient, and although we came towards the end of service we didn’t feel rushed at all. Many thanks- Lockdown permitting we will come again !!!

    We enjoyed our main courses and were very happy with the service. However, the sweets were poor and over priced and were of the standard you would expect from a mediocre pub not 'gourmet all-day dining'. My wife said that next time we should not order sweets, but that is no good if you are hungry. It was a great shame and a disappointment

    Lovely stop off for lunch. Menu caters for all tastes and diets easily and everything we had was delicious. Service was friendly and good. Quite tucked away in a village off the A46 and one we will definitely visit again. I can't comment on the views as everywhere was flooded at the time we visited unfortunately, but I am sure normally the views would be lovely over the little marina and river.
