I've eaten at The Riverside a few times and thought I would share my positive experiences on here. The food is always good, have never come away disappointed. The staff are lovely and very professional. The decor is very stylish and the atmosphere is relaxing. Overall I would say The Riverside has a very trendy vibe, yet it caters to... More

We both ate deep fried cod and chips with peas. Fish first rate and batter very crisp. We followed this with ice cream and sticky toffee pudding. Food very good and first class service. After our meal we watched The Nutcracker live from Covent Garden. That was excellent.

We felt mean having tapas mini fish n chips and mini steak n chips but the small plate was enough with a pud. Perfect size and tasted delightful. Staff were lovely. I would recommend it every time.

We held our wedding celebrations at the Riverside and were so impressed that I needed to write my first ever review on here. In short- they were amazing. We were in the supremely capable hands of Lee throughout the preparations and, with the owner's guidance, he allowed us to create an absolutely wonderful day that was personal, unique and beyond...

An evening of fish and flicks with my wife at the Woodbridge Riverside was a great experience, a lovely setting just next to the station / river. Mixed local breads and olive oils followed by a very nice battered haddock and chips - it was delicious! Now off to see the film so all in all a great night out

Had a meal with small family group on a Friday evening in late April. Nice food and reasonable atmosphere. Seating at the front by the window allows you to watch the world going by which is always interesting.

After reading a recent review in The Financial Times by the revered critic Tim Hayward I felt compelled to visit this establishment. Not only was it his admiration of the cuisine served but more so his criticism of the length (or lack of) of the waitresses skirts ! I therefore felt compelled (as a red blooded male) to investigate this... More

The restaurant is in front of the Riverside theatre which also doubles up as the towns cinema. There are a number of choices for each course and the emphasis is on locally sourced food. The portion sizes are good and the food is tasty. It is advisable to book as the restaurant is popular and fills up quickly.

My first disappointment is this restaurant should be called The Roadside, the Quay part of the address is a small industrial estate with a tidal mill at the end around the corner. Located on a busy road with a railway line behind it is not the idyllic location I expected. My visit was prompted by an excellent review in one... More

We didn't book in advance but we were found a table inside. We enjoyed the lobster and the haddock in batter. Very good food and service. Will definitely return.
