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.

    6 of us enjoyed an excellent lunch, staff were attentive without being obtrusive. Good menu range at reasonable prices. A good experience in very pleasant surroundings.

    Not a great experience this time as the service was poor, we felt unwelcome in the restaurant and that our presence was a nuisance. Food quality was good. We were disappointed as normally this restaurant has a very high standard of service.

    Bit disappointed in food with fish and chips chips were nice but fish was dry and the batter very greasy. The pork belly was nice but again the batter on black pudding was greasy and the gravy was tasteless and watery. Asked for mustard and was given a half full jar which was full of bits of other peoples food.

    We enjoyed our meal at the Riverside. Even the puddings were good. I often find them disappointing in restaurants. The staff were hard working helpful and personable.
