Very friendly pub with good beer (London Pride) and food, as it is really more of a restaurant than a pub. Well worth a visit particularly if you are hungry.

My girlfriend and me stopped here intending just to have a drink but stayed for dinner. It definately feels more of a restaraunt than a pub and the menu is very typically brit-pub! The food was good though and the staff quick and efficient. I cant say I'd go out of my way to return but it was a decent enough place to refuel.

Yes it�s difficult to find � keep going right to the end of the road. Also it appears to be in a rough area and looks a bit iffy from the outside � we nearly didn�t go in but once inside it was fine. We were made welcome � only ones in at about 5pm but it soon filled up.
Yes it�s more for eating although the beer was excellent albeit a very limited choice.
Food nice but expensive (by Northern standards anyway).
Not really worth a special journey, we called for tea on the way to the Chunnel.

We stopped at the Riverside - it is a little hard to find but worth the journey. A little difficult to get in - they could make the doorways more welcoming. I would say though that the staff were fantastic and very welcoming. We all had a roast dinner and it was superb and well priced. If I was down in that area again I would not hesitate to visit. Well done guys - you are giving a great service

Went to this place for the first time recently. Sorry, but with tables laid out in about 3/4 of the place for diners and not much space for drinkers : like about 2 seats, this place is barely qualifying as a pub. Real ale was ok (but unimaginative ie hobgoblin), prefer the locomotive up the road it is a proper pub

Went to the Riverside for my birthday meal along with twelve friends and family at the weekend. The food was outstanding, everyone in the party I went with agreed how good the food was, not even a minor grumble. The staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble (despite having six bills to contend with in a party of thirteen!). Would thoroughly recommend this place now, the new owners seemed to have really made an effort. 10/10.

What a difference a year makes - what was once the #1 pub in Ashford is now little more than a youth club where the volume of Sky Sports is increasingly raised to drown out the racket of the juke box.
I went in planning to have an evening meal there - I couldn't get out quick enough to avoid a headache. Last year this place warranted 8/10. Today - 4/10 � could do better.

This place seems to be getting busier each time I visit, which must be a good sign.

Much overlooked back street pub.
It's very handy for the designer outlet centre in Ashford, and whilst the food might take a little while to arrive, it's worth the wait.
