Great meal, lovely staff! Service was a little slow but there was quite a few tables in and only 2 young girls serving so totally understandable. Only thing I would comment on is the £3 charge for a small bottle of juice. If we had been aware of the price we wouldn’t have ordered extra drinks as you can buy 2x 2L bottles in a shop for £2. Very overpriced soft drinks but apart from that we would definitely return.

I haven’t been in for a couple of years and wow, I was really impressed at the changes! The food was lovely and the view outstanding. Protective measures in place were adhered to and made the place feel very safe. I’ll be back again soon

Food was tasty and good quality. Atmosphere was good even though I was with my son, I could feel how great it would be with an adult company. Service was a bit slow, it took 30min for the starter (bread and dips).

This was my first visit to the River and I will definitely be back. The food was amazing (best steak sandwich I've tasted in a long time!) staff were friendly and the decor is beautiful. We enjoyed our meal and drinks, (which were very reasonably priced) with a great view. I would highly recommend!

We visited while staying at wemyss Bay on holiday from Newcastle. We booked in advance before arriving last week and it was really easy too book. In arrival we were given a window seat and even though it hadn't been the best of weather the views were amazing!! Service was fab and the food was superb. We have an autistic daughter who doesn't really like eating out and goes through stages of only eating certain things for weeks at a time. The current food she is eating wasn't on the menu and the staff went above and beyond and made her a cheesy garlic ciabatta which we are ever so greatful for. She's even asked if she can come back which is rare for her. If we are ever back up this way we will be sure to pay a visit

Disappointed we weren’t actually seated in “the river” as this is where we booked on purpose and not “good brew” it would have been nice if we knew this before hand. We wanted the river on purpose hence booking here as it’s a more Saturday night atmosphere and intimate and the nice views compared the good brew which is more of a daytime cafe/coffee shop vibe in different circumstances we wouldn’t have stayed but due to the Covid situation probably wouldn’t have got in anywhere. On the plus side the food was still good and the service was excellent from the polite girls serving x
