We went here on the recommendation of a friend and weren't sure what to expect. We were made welcome and shown to a table just outside the main restaurant as we didn't have a booking and our jackets were taken and hung up for us. A waitress took our drinks order quite quickly but it took a while for a... More

The restaurant is a pleasant area away from the centre of Stirling with plenty parking not far the motorway. The booking saw us at our table quickly. The menu has lots of choice and therefore most people will find something to their taste. Some people had a variety of first courses. Most were reasonable portions, except the scallops with black...

I have always enjoyed my meal at the Riverhouse . The food has always been slightly different quirky yet tasty. The service is sometimes a bit slow but on the whole I have enjoyed the food . Great location at the edge of Stirling with views up to the castle .

Went for dinner to find menu options changed which was fair enough but was dismayed to find the choice and quality of food changed beyond recognition and not in a good way. The food did not appear to be freshly made, the presentation was clumsy and unimaginative I could have eaten better in a supermarket cafe. I will not be... More

We visited the River House to give it another try after a previous disappointing visit. I had soup and a sandwich which was absolutely delicious a 100% improvement on my previous visit. Well done the River House.

Have been visiting the River House prior to holidays and after Strictly for years- went as usual this Saturday. Warm welcome, quick service of drinks but oh dear-the change in the menu and quality of food extremely disappointing. In previous years huge menu with special offers for early bird eaters but menu change now gives very little choice- all really... More
