At The River Terrace, we have the privilege of operating out of a beautiful Tudor-era building. Built in the 16th century, our space could tell many stories. We’ve been a tearoom, butcher, dress shop, Wadsworth’s mineral water factory, and many other iterations over the last four hundred years. Ask us next time you're in for more quirky tidbits!


Our space includes three dining spaces, including a bar and expansive terrace (as our namesake would imply.) We’re lucky to enjoy 180 degree views of the ancient gantry bridge, only one of four in the country, and Hemingford meadow.


Our chefs James and Dan have worked very hard to source our produce locally, with a focus on keeping seasonality at the forefront of their menus. We offer an ever-evolving brunch menu during the day. On weekend evenings, we endeavour to provide a modern British take on tapas-style dining with our small plates menu. We’re proud to showcase bread from Grain Culture, a custom roast from Brew Project, high-welfare meat from Dingley Dell and Burton's, free roam Red Lion certified eggs from Woodfarm, and English cheeses from Rennet & Rind (to name a few!)

We hope you enjoy what we've created as a team as much as we enjoy serving it to you.


Dog Friendly?

Yes! We are dog-friendly on our terrace and in our downstairs dining area. We just ask that our four-legged friends stay off the furniture, please.


Outdoor Seating?

Our lovely terrace is weather dependent, but if you'd like to sit outside we'll do our best to accommodate. When booking, please leave a comment stating that you'd prefer to be on the terrace. Please note that depending on the time of day and level of sunshine, we cannot guarantee shade and it can get warm.


Our toilets are on the first floor, and unfortunately we do not have an accessible loo. There are public toilets in town that are step-free, and one across from us that has a single step to access.
