The river room is one of thee best dining experiences in Northern Ireland. The staff are second to none. They have a great understanding of each dish that’s being served as it helps when making your choice. The food is on another level. Chefs do a great job but it’s the service staff that take it to 5 star. Highly recommend and can’t wait to get back.

The staff of The River Room were fantastic from the welcome to the goodbyes. The food was of a very high quality. It was fantastic to take a walk to the river to then see the green house with some courgettes growing that we had just eaten. Excellent, highly recommended and we will be back.

The highlight of our visit to Galgorm was our experience in the River Room restaurant. A special thanks to your Chef for tailoring the menu to accommodate my dietary requirements and for taking the time to organise a personalised menu which was presented to me on arrival. The Restaurant Manager also deserves a mention for his professionalism, obviously aware of my intolerances, he answered my queries in relation to the menu without hesitation in a discreet manner. Our meal was delicious, really enjoyable, it was so refreshing to enjoy a meal without concern for allergens. Thank you to all concerned.

Simply exquisite. The service was perfect; friendly, professional and attentive without being overbearing. The black pudding beignets and crispy trout canapès were gorgeous and the veloute with pork cheek (the amuse-bouche) along with the sourdough bread and smoked rock salt, was divine. The pastry on the onion tartlet just melted in the mouth and my husband loved his cod starter- the flavours were so delicate but complimented each other perfectly. We both had the beef main course and again, it was cooked to perfection and every mouthful was a delight. I had the strawberries, pistachio and cream and my husband had the chocolate torte, coffee and macadamia nut dessert. They were both amazing. It was so nice to eat somewhere where the dessert was a crowning glory instead of an after thought. The chocolate torte was particularly fantastic. The petit fours were a perfect end to a perfect dining experience. The River Room more than deserves its 3 AA rosettes. By far the best meal I’ve eaten in a long time. I would put it on par with The Muddlers Club, James St South......and better than the meals we’ve had at Ox. We will definitely dine in The River Room next time we stay at Galgorm.
