Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Last updated: 17 August 2020

Firstly, we’d like to wish everyone the best of health. If you do feel unwell, we encourage you to stay at home and wish you a speedy recovery.

Wow, we’ve missed you and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back for great food and entertainment. As well as old favourites, we have some new eateries opening soon and the return of Street Feast.

There are some new arrangements in place to keep the teams and guests safe and healthy. So please regularly check with restaurants for updates and especially before visiting.

Eat Out to Help Out

Get 50% off the cost of a meal per head – up to a maximum of £10 – when eating out at a participating venue from Mondays-Wednesdays in August. In effect, that means a family of four can save up to £40 on a meal out. Any meal counts, from coffee and cake right up to a 3-course meal. You don’t need a voucher and there’s no restriction on the number of times you claim the discount either. And yes, kids count!

Participating restaurants at Riverside include:

  • Albero Lounge
  • wagamama
  • Miller & Carter
  • Treat St
  • Zizzi

We recommend booking to avoid disappointment
