About The River Gourock
New restaurant with extensive views of the rolling hills of the west coast of Scotland and the river Clyde, Offering a variety of food at affordable prices.
Ordered a pint, to be told the beer lines were not working, couldn’t get a pint. Myself and my partner ordered a steak sandwich and a steak sizzle and onions rings to be told there was no Onion Rings, Steak or Beef. This was a Saturday night, how can a ‘restaurant’ not have beef or steak for service on a Saturday night? Won’t be back.
The food was delicious. Great value for money.
We will not be back. out as a family of 4 waited 40 min for mains. Wrong order arrived 3 correct meals one wrong meal. Said they would get other meal. Had to eventually cancel as the person still without a meal was going to end up eating on there own I asked for the bill and a discount which I got. The restaurant was not busy at the time
Had a great night for nye, food and drink was great. Staff were lovely.
Service was very slow. By the time our mains were served the kitchen was closed. Not offered dessert. To get a drink we needed to go to the bar.
Christmas Eve with family. Chose steak sandwich. No ciabatta for sandwich. Was offered just the steak without the bread. Then no steak. Opted for steak pie. Told same streak used for pie as sandwich. No pie. Opted for coconut curry. Tasteless. Chips half cooked. Absolutely terrible would not eat there again. Had been told by someone it’s poor but everyone has different taste so gave benefit of doubt. Friends opinion was right. Very poor and very disappointing. Over £100 for that. Never again.
Good food and reasonable price.
Had a lovely meal with friends. Good food and drinks and nice atmosphere. Will return soon. One comment - Not too keen on the bathroom mirrors
First time at the river, amazing place, view right over the river, even at night there’s always something to see. The vibe in the place was cool even with our kids in tow, service was exemplary , food & wine where fantastic, great recommendations from the staff on the wine. Would definitely recommend & will definitely be back. Love the overall design and style of the river
Lovely restaurant and beautiful views. Food was very nice, desserts a little slow to be served. Disappointed with the cheesecake as the base was a little stale rather than crunchy. Pleasantly surprised when the bill showed main courses as half price.
The food was tasty and reasonable. Decent choice of starters, mains and desserts. Will be going again soon.
Went for a family meal to celebrate my wee ones birthday. The evening meal deal and kids eat for £1.00 was a great offer. Food was great and the service from the waitress was excellent if just a wee bit slow especially for the kids. Overall a great treat out and we will definitely be back and would recommend to our friends.
Lovely restaurant with beautiful view. Waiter Jordan was lovely. Will definitely be back. Small point - we found it difficult to get the attention of someone when we needed condiments. The restaurant was reasonably busy but it would have been helpful if staff checked in with tables to see if everything was okay x
Friendly staff. Food was excellent and a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Lovely food and great service.
Excellence in food, service and drinks. Wonderful view!
We had two excellent evenings with you. Everything was perfect. We would most definitely return. Thank you.
Would have been 5 stars for food and drink had the drinks order been correct first time although was quickly remedied.
1st time since renovation. I was impressed with the decor. Food was lovely. Didn't realise if u ate between 4-6pm that food was half price. That was very pleasant surprise. Staff very attentive n polite Will be back .
Booked here for a meal with the family (party of 6) and we were not disappointed! The place is looking great since its renovation and the online booking system made it easy to modify the reservation time when we chose to make it earlier (twice!). The staff were friendly and attentive and we all enjoyed the food we each ordered- my parents love a moan and even they thought it was excellent! The cocktail selection is smaller than it was as Flava but still has a few good yummy picks. No Tennants but my dad was happy with the St Mungos he had instead. Thank you and I’ll definitely be recommending!
Enjoyed a lovely meal with good service on a Monday night. This was our first time sampling this new restaurant and will certainly be back.
Fantastic location, friendly efficient staff. Food was freshly made and delicious. We will definitely be back soon.
Lovely venue with stunning views. Great service and pleasant staff.
My only negative issue is it is not clear when booking where you are eating. I booked online for The River expecting it to therefore be upstairs. We arrived to find it wasn't. Please make it clearer at the time. Apart from that a really good evening.
We had a great meal. Food was fabulous, well priced and great views thrown in. The service at the start was a bit slow but that’s probably just because we were towards the end of service and maybe a bit more communication around the delays would have been helpful. The quality of the food made up for the wait! It’s a new venture and will have some teething blips. We will definitely be back and would certainly recommend to our friends. I’m sure next time it will be 5 stars all round!
