If you eat meat then you'll have no problem. If your vegetarian it's different however most times I've been the staff have not really understood what on the menu is vegetarian or not... Thankfully after speaking to the chef they generally come back saying what cheeses are vegetarian or not etc. Quite a few times I've asked if it was... More

The food choice may not be a lot but taste good. Been there few times and absolutely love the service. After food it's always better to have few drinks on a fine day and a nice path for a small walk and if you lucky some friendly horses will be there to stroke. A smart place for anyone who know...

The service was excellent - friendly, welcoming and efficient. The food was very good and great value for money - good choice of roasts, delicious... More

We were a big party but they fitted us in and we had a lovely time. Food was faultless and a wide range of choice. Three meat choice in the Sunday roasts and can even go for a extra large roast, but be warned it is massive, so come hungry if you're having that! Courses didn't fly out meaning we... More

I live just down the road from The Riverside Inn and my area isn't the best in Ashford, however this pub is gorgeous! Very friendly owners and regulars, you get a real pub restaurant feel when walking in. Loveliest place to go for a bevvy in the sun in the summer too.

We had a lovely lunch on Sunday to celebrate my birthday. The large roast in served in a giant Yorkshire pudding was delicious and a real treat. The service was great and feel like we found a hidden gem! Will definitely be back

So, thought I would go back and give The Riverside another chance. I ordered salmon with champagne sauce. Unfortunately, it didn't meet with expectations. The asparagus spears were hard, I like my vegetables al denté but these were raw. The chips were hard, the cabbage in the veg selection was very sad looking and to top it all the chips... More
