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.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was served quickly and was of good quality. However didn't have nearly half the menu available due to a delayed delivery which made the visit slightly disappointing. Could understand one or two options not being available to order but when half the menu isn't available doesn't leave much choice for food.

    Another great meal at the Riverside. I love the decor, ambience and comfortable yet modern furniture. Service excellent - food superb and fantastic value too. The vegetable soup with a subtle hint of chilli was amazing,. Our chicken breast were both succulent and perfectly cooked through. Lemon tart is a particular favourite for both myself and my wife and this did not disappoint. We will be back - many times....
