There are endless opportunities for a party at the River Cafè and dozens of possible style variations; a cocktail party with roving food and drinks selected from our a la carte menu but in miniature, a sit-down chef’s menu with a drinks package or grazing table served by one of our chefs.

Equally the tiered nature of seating in the restaurant makes River Cafè a terrific venue for a theatre type seminar that can be followed with or have an interval of perfectly pitched food and beverage.


We have full audio-visual facilities and stable wifi.
