    We were a large group of 17 and we had a fantastic experience at The River. All our meals were lovely and very tasty and the service was great too! We will definitely return.

    Friendly, and they let us swap tables to move outside. Fish of the day was great, other dishes less so. Only one vegetarian option for starter and main was disappointing, especially when it wasn't very nice.

    The River is a favourite of ours when we visit Margs. Love the laid back happy vibe and the traditional country pub feel it has. The service is always good and the menu has lots of choice. The Fish curry is one of the best meals I’ve had and the Sweet potato fries so delicious. Hats off to the chef!!

    The service and wait time for the meal was very good especially since was a very busy evening. Staff were attentive. We had the lamb cutlets more like a small rack (3 chops) was very rare and the steak with the roasted veggies which were more like steamed. Decent sized serves. Very varied menu. Nice ambience though a little noisy.

    A real character pub setting. We requested a quieter corner and got it. We stuck with the starters for our meal and treated it like tapas. The chicken wings and fish tacos were great! Great selection of local wines to choose from.

    The food was great, bar staff were poor, 0 enthusiasm, table service was ok, no one came to check we were all good. Obviously good chefs as the food was excellent, but the place was so noisy we could not hold a conversation and unfortunately our table was right by the door ….

    The River restaurant was extremely busy - it was school holidays - and we were shown to a quieter table in a little nook. The food was wonderful - we had lamb spare ribs and brussels sprouts and chips. Prompt service, delicious meals and happy ambience.

    Our booking was thoughtfully considered as we needed wheelchair access. The food was delicious, but some dishes could have been a little warmer. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff friendly. Perhaps the tables could have a more thorough wipedown as it has a bit of a sticky pub vibe

    You order at the counter and food is delivered to your table. All three meals were delicious. Prices are excellent for the quality. Most dishes are spicy.

    I love dinner at The River, and especially before a show at the Margaret River Heart. This must always be a busy night for the staff, but they are all lovely, service is quick and food was fantastic. We three enjoyed the Fish Tacos, delish.
