Welcome to the river inn & brierie bar

We have a very simple aim: to offer top quality food that is sourced locally and made in–house using only the finest seasonal ingredients.

Our talented kitchen team includes Proprietor Jason Andrews and Head Chef Stephen Murray. They share a very similar approach to cooking and a passion for food; each of our menus is a collaborative effort from the two skilled chefs.

Some of the stunning Menu selections currently on offer include Bombay Smoked Haddock Risotto, or a delicious Home Smoked Duck Salad, Fresh Snow Peas, Goats Cheese & Freshly Sliced Kiwi, yum; perhaps the Pan–Fried Saddle of Scotch Lamb (carved pink, of course!) accompanied by Beggars Purse of Haggis, Neeps & Tatties is more to your taste?

Whatever your preference, we serve only the best food and drink in impressive, yet relaxed surroundings. Since our inception in 2005, our chefs have continued to ensure The River Inn delivers inspired menus within an elegant setting and refined service.

Pop in with colleagues and sample our Lite Lunch offerings, or drop by with the kids on a Sunday for the legendary River Inn Carvery and ease that hangover with a full-bodied rich red to compliment your roast. We have developed a reputation for generous portions at prices to suit every budget. You will find yourself spoiled for choice.
