Steve of N21 left this review about The Riverside

The KSP of this one, as they say in marketing parlance, is the riverside undercover outside terrace at the back of the pub, with its interesting ship mural on the brick wall beneath it, (which is best viewed from the other died of the river) and the substantial outside patio section to the side of the pub.
I could see both of these were completely packed out as I crossed the bridge to find the front entrance for this pub, but it was still quite surreal to walk into a pub where virtually all the internal seating was empty but there was a still a scrum three deep at the bar.
Fortunately the bar staff were doing a decent job of getting through the throng and i soon found myself infront of a bank of three hand pumps with three True North beers on in the shape of First Blonde, IPA and Riverside Best and as try as I might but due to a large group of blokes being served in front of them I couldn’t clearly see what was on the other bank of four pumps, except for making out Blue Bee Tempest Stout, and Black Jack Snip Snap Snorum. I went for the True North Blonde which was a decent enough golden ale. There was also lots of shiney keg taps and there looked like a decent range of craft brews available as well..
I can see why this one is popular with the millennials, who were packing out the outside spaces on this particular late Saturday lunchtime.

Will Larter left this review about The Riverside

It was very busy and rather noisy when I was here on Friday afternoon, with what I reckon would be a largely post-work crowd, mostly 30-something males. There are seven hand pumps, as far as I could make out with a crowd around the bar, four beers from True North and three guests. There were Tiny Rebel Mango Milkshake, Acorn Blonde and Squawk Crex. I went for the last named, as much for its very attractive pump clip as anything else, which was in very good condition (the beer, not the pump clip). It was very cold, and I reckon 50% of the people present would have been sitting or standing outside in warmer weather. This is obviously a very popular pub, but it has somehow never quite floated my boat. Others will obviously think differently.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Riverside Inn

Looks inviting enough to cross the river to take a closer look, and this proves well worthwhile. The riverside position isn't itself much of a draw since it is dominated by dull modern blocks of flats opposite, and it's now almost impossible to imagine what the view once was in the industrial heyday. However, the terrace must be a fine spot in the better weather. The interior has been opened out to leave a 'L'-shaped bar with alehouse-style furniture and decor, but a side room has been retained as a lounge. Also has a side beer garden. Decent choice of real ales in various styles from mostly local small breweries on the seven handpumps, and I opted for the True North Wyming Bitter (£2.90) which was in fine form.
