RIVER RESTAURANT MENUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Simply delicious”

Reviewed 26 March 2014

A wonderful meal....truly! I was on a recent Fly Fishing trip (Mid March 2014) & a friend suggested we go (as it was my shout!). It was quiet on arrival, but a few more diners arrived after us. The meal was simply delicious, and the Pinot 2009 was delightful. A very full bodied Pinot which was a departure from other I have drunk. I highly recommend the food & Restaurant. Very well done indeed. I will return upon my next Fly Fishing expedition.
