The River Restaurant

It’s all going on at The River Restaurant, where we serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The configuration of the private dining room allows for privacy, whether it be an intimate tete-a-tete or larger party.

The à la carte menu has been devised around the best local and seasonal produce. An additional three-course menu changes each month following the seasonal bounty and is just £24.95 for three courses at lunch and dinner except Saturday Evening, while our popular Sunday lunch menu is £22.50 per person for three courses and is always accompanied by live music.


The River Restaurant is famed for its Sunday roast and for October we have a very special offer, enjoy 2 courses for 2 people and enjoy a glass of Prosecco for just £36.00 per couple.  If you prefer all three courses our menu is still available for £22.50 per person. Don’t forget our talented performer Kimm will be in The River Bar all Sunday afternoon, so sit back, relax, and forget all about the upcoming Monday…

Breakfast is served during the week between 7am and 10.30am and at weekends 7.30am to 11am.  Lunch is served Monday to Friday between 12 noon and 2.30pm, on Saturday 12.30 to 2.30 and on Sunday 12.30 and 3pm. Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Friday between 2.15pm and 4pm, Saturday 12 noon and 4pm and Sunday 3.15pm and 5pm.
