Since taking over the venue, we have been working hard to transform the building into a truly special pub, restaurant and coffee house.

Whatever reason you may have for visiting us – a healthy or hearty breakfast, a coffee with home-baking beside our wood-burning stove or downstairs with the kids in the play area, fantastic food with family in our restaurant, a glass of wine or a local beer with friends in our bar or on the riverside terrace – we assure you of a friendly welcome from staff who care.

Please let us know when you book if you are bringing your dog and we will reserve a suitable table.

The Riverside really is our dream come true and we look forward to welcoming you through its doors.

    The food was delicious. The only let down for me was finding a piece of macaroni cheese under my feather blade dish, the person clearing my table just said “it must have fallen in there during the pass”. This was my first visit to the Riverside but I would give it another try.

    As ever, a very pleasant dining experience at the Riverside. Service was rapid, friendly and attentive. Good core menu and excellent specials menu. Had garden pea soup to start, beef stroganoff for main and chocolate delice for dessert. Good selection of ales including a couple of Scottish cask ones. Proces very reasonable. Wish I could transport the Riverside to Edinburgh, I'd love to have a place like this on my doorstep!

    The food was excellent if a bit expensive and the staff were lovely and very efficient. My problem was I don’t think I have ever seen so many dogs in an eating establishment. At one point a group of people came in with six very large dogs. They went outside to the decking but had to walk past our table to get there. I have serious hygiene issues with this and in spite of the good points I mentioned I will never be back.
