We decided to visit The Riverside for Lunch hoping for a pleasant and hospitable visit. On arrival we weren't welcomed In with so much as a hello or welcome from the gentleman (I use this term loosely) behind the bar. We proceeded to go and find a table within the bar area which was dirty. When I moved some of... More

My husband and I have been travelling this road for 4 weeks now and stopped each Saturday on the off chance. We have been welcomed and accommodated in a second to none manor. After the friendliest and most polite, welcome we have received for years, we then found the environment just as special, then the food was excellent. A gem... More

Stopped here for lunch, not familiar with the area,, what a corker! The owner is clearly a throwback to the times before the customer is always deemed right. Just order your food, do not under any circumstance ask for anything such as "granary bread" with the soup,, his response? You'll have whatever bread it comes with. Seriously, he wasn't joking!...

This is a nice spot along the River Severn between Shrewsbury & Cressage. Located on the river it's a fairly old building with outside seating area overlooking the river. Inside it's all pretty ordinary, pleasant enough but nothing special. Visited as an extended family for a Sunday lunch. Food, like the establishment was okay but nothing exceptional, staff & service... More

Stopped by for a few drinks with friends. The bar was like a morgue. How about some light background music - there are speakers on the wallls but nothing ever comes out of them. So quiet otherwise.

A lovely meal celebrating a family birthday over the weekend. Very friendly and courteous waitress service, good beer (Shropshire Gold) on tap and excellent home cooked food. Had a very nice Sirloin Steak, cooked just how I like it, with very tasty chips and veg. Really like that fact that they change the menu every month.

Visited the Riverside Inn this afternoon as I have family visiting from London and we wished to admire the Shropshire views during Lunch. Unfortunatley that is where it ends. The views the garden area provide are all this place has to offer. Upon our arrival we entered the bar area for drinks and were eventually met by two ladies. One... More

From the outside you would never realise what a beautiful view of the River Severn it has from its conservatory at the back. Went on Friday night and booked again for the Saturday but be beware the main course portions are very large so starve yourself before you go! The whole place seemed to have been manned by lovely ladies!... More
