The Riverside looks more inviting from the view I've shown than it does from the front. A pity because, once you're inside, its got a bit of character.
On two levels, with the bar on the lower with four or five steps up to the second (and also note, the toilets. Not good for yours truly).
Still, although I found it a bit dim for my liking, a good welcome was given by the governor and a selection of 5 real ales was on offer.
Opting for the Green King LBW, I got on chatting to Tony, the boss, and it turns out there are regular bands and entertainment at the Riverside and he also has The Alum Ale House, another good real ale place, just along the road. So, along the road we go!
