Real Ale Ray left this review about The Riva

This pub was reported closed from the middle of December last year, so obviously Marston's have got new tenants. The pub is housed in an attractive looking mid 17th Century building, with large Georgian windows and a handsome looking front entrance, obviously added at a later period. The interior consists of three separate rooms, one of the rooms featuring a nice fireplace and the bar was situated on the right up some steps. The majority of the customers use the front patio in good weather. Two ales on handpump Wychwood Hobgoblin and Marston's Pedigree.

We walked past this place on saturday 4/9/10 and then decided to go back and see what this place had to offer,i was expecting no real ale and a dire place to have a drink in,I was very wrong.

There are a few tables at the front with brollys but these were too busy to sit at.
Once we walked into this pub you have to go up a couple of steps there is a room to the left but there is no bar in this room, we went in the room on the right which was quite small with the bar facing us there were three handpumps on the bar i think this is probably a marstons house we tried the Pedigree and this was a very nice drink there was also Marstons EPA and Jennings Cocker Hoop on the bar.
There is another small room up a couple more steps to the right of the bar which had familys with children in it.
The seating is small chunky wooden tables and chairs and we felt very comfortable and really enjoyed having a drink here,we will visit this pub again and hopefully have more than one drink here.

Pub visited again on 1 October 2011

Well we got round to visit this pub again and we wer'nt dissapointed,the pub is still the same as last time but there was a different choice of beers on the bar.
There were three real ales on we had a drink of Hobgoblin and this was quite a nice drink the other beers were Jennings Cockerhoop and Jennings Crag Rat.
There was still a nice atmosphere and this is one of my wifes favourite pubs in this area.
