The Rivington Grill
Highly Commended Best Family 6 Comments
Elegant interiors and its superior take on British cuisine belie the fact that it’s also a great (if pricy) option for families, too. With ample high chairs and ultra attentive, friendly staff, young diners are made to feel at home from the moment they sit down – from the colouring books and crayons that are doled out on arrival, to the kids’ menu that suits even the fussiest eaters, with simple baked beans on toast or tomato soup to pan-friend salmon and veg. The kids’ food arrives first, and breaded fish goujons with mayonnaise are moreish enough for adults to covet them too. Freshly-baked bread staves off grown-ups’ hunger until mains arrive – the roast beef dinner comes with a vast slab of pinkly tender meat, with crisp roast spuds and the all-important Yorkshire pudding cooked to just the right balance of chewyness and crispness. Save room for dessert – kids can try the delectable Eton mess or a serving of ice cream (try the honeycomb), while adults should not miss the malted chocolate and caramel pie.
