user reviews of Riverside Farm, Nottingham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Bit of a let down in the end.
The place looked nice enough, & the inside didnt let us down. Unfortunately we arrived at 21:30, when they had just stopped cooking. (This might be a mistake as the pub is next to a Travelodge hotel, that dont supply food. In my mind, a bit of a captive audience).

Went back the following day & had a basic Steak & Ale Pie & Chicken medley.
1/ I asked the barmaid if I could have a Cup of Tea instead of a Pot. This was accepted but was still charged for a Pot.
2/ Barmaid asked if I preferred garden or mushy peas. I asked if the mushy peas were dried/soaked peas or just mushed up processed peas. She didnt know, & didnt ask.
3/ When the meals arrived, both my Son & I thought that the portions werent that great (despite the advert saying generous portions of good quality food. It soon became evident, that the pie & peas had been heated in a microwave oven. The peas were cold, until I got to the centre, where they were quite warm.
The pie had very soft cardboard pastry around a few pieces of rubbery meat & gristle, that wasnt pleasant to eat. (I dont usually mind a bit of gristle here & there, it comes with eating meat but there is a limit).
The what seemed like home cooked chips looked alright, but were flaccid & some were raw down the middle.
1/ Bread-crumbs were soggy & chicken seemed a bit plasticy. Apart from nasty chips, other parts were just about acceptable.
2/ Orange Drink. Very watery, with only a splash of orange.

We had expected a great meal. The place its-self looked nice. There were plenty of kitchen workers (though I have no idea if they were chefs) Not pleasant. Not good. Wont go again, or recommend it. If this had been one of a chain, it would put me off the whole chain.

A pub up the road of the chain variety was totally different. Another basic meal of Steak & Chips was one of the best that Ive ever had at any place. If those places can do it, it should be easy for others to.

Now this place surprised me, admittedly a large family orientated barn of a pub opp a travelodge doesnt hold much hope in my books........

.........however this place has two handpumps offering ales from the CAMRA LOCALE scheme, my pint of Nutbrook ale was very nice and enjoyed out in the sun on one of their many outside tables.......7/10
