Booked the table for a Specual Anniversary, only to turn up at the restaurant and it was closed! How did that happen OT?
Obviously would have given zero stars if
Even the Restaurants answering machine indicated it was open that night.
How much would it have taken to change the message, put a sign in the window etc etc.
Truly pathetic, especially when we had a 25 mile round trip.

Overall the food was delicious and well presented. As I am gluten and dairy-free, the chef made something off the menu for me, which was equally delicious. The service was also impeccable and I would definitely return. We had a great evening.

Since this restaurant opened I have ear marked it for a visit. I looked at the on line menu which read well. I realise that you can't always expect the menu on line to be the one you receive on the night but when we received the menu in the restaurant it was very disappointing. The starters and mains on offer were poor. On the website there is a somewhat better offering which is one reason I chose to dine there. The online menu boasts 4 "nibbles", only 2 on offer on the night. I can cope with that. The online starters read well with some that required chef skill. The starters on the night I would expect to find in a "nice pub" eg deep fried cheese. I would not expect to find this in any classy establishment!! The mains on line, again read very well with A La Carte dishes, grills & classic dishes. I will always choose an A La Carte dish when dining out. However there was no separation, as is with the on line menu, between a la carte & classic dishes. The only a la carte dish was lamb, the rest were classic dishes which, again, I would find in a "nice pub". When the chap came to take our order I told him we wouldn't be dining because of the poor menu selection. The menu on offer reeked of ease, as if the restaurant is short staffed so the easiest items were put on the menu. This restaurant is relatively new &, given our experience, it wouldn't surprise me if it closes down within the next year.

pleasant venue with good choice of dishes. Service slightly erratic but there was a large party behind us which is always a challenge for the staff.

My family and I came here for a Sunday roast. The vegetables tasted very fresh and flavours were there but the food wasn't quite hot enough and portion size smaller than I am used to. The restaurant was fairly quiet and the atmosphere wasn't great.

We booked Riley's again having dined there last year & enjoyed our meal. This time was a visit with an elderly relative knowing the access & facilities are good. We were made welcome although we needn't have booked as the restaurant wasn't busy at 1.30pm. We all enjoyed our mains from the lunchtime menu & the one dessert & 2 coffees were satisfactory.
I imagine we will visit Riley's again in the future.

When we arrived at Rileys we were instantly welcomed and when we explained we were still waiting for one person they offered us to stay at the bar or to our table. The food was lovely and the service was brilliant. Carl the owner was marvellous with us all through the night. We had a really great night.

Booking was easy online and very efficient. Our table was ready for us and the waiter was very helpful.
The menu was mostly meat based and both of us had a steak, mine being a thin barbecue one. The quality was excellent and the triple cooked chips were delicious.
The starters were a little limited and I chose celeriac soup which was served in a kilna jar. Too hot and I found out too late I'm afraid so beware!
The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the tables were not too close.
Overall a good night and we would certainly recommend this restaurant to others.

We have visited the restaurant three times and enjoyed our visits very much. Our last visit was New Years eve. They were very helpful with dietary requirements and we had a smashing night. Look forward to our next visit.
