Waitresses were very polite. Handled every request we gave to a great standard. Food was lovely, great choice. Although we did find 2 black hairs in 2 dishes.
Did not comment due to the fact lockdown has just been eased and small businesses should be respected, I am sure it has been a very stressful period. Have been visiting for numerous years, so I know the quality of food is great and it was a rare occasion to find hairs in the dishes.

I will be returning either via their dine in option, or with a takeaway.

First time we’ve ordered, delivery on time as quoted, food hot and very tasty, one of the best takeaways we’ve had.

4 of us went to river garden last night for a birthday meal, we were told we needed to go by 8pm which gave us an hour and half, which was fine although they were very slow with taking orders and checking on customers throughout our stay.
We were seated at a table and soon after another family sat right behind us, NO SOCIAL DISTANCING what so ever, we mentioned it to one of the staff to then be told that it’s ok to sit here as we’re not facing them and that ‘’COVID doesn’t travel backwards’’ ‍♀️, even though we were pretty much right behind them.

Staff were very rude, food was not as nice as when we had been before, ribs were fatty and gristly, battered mushrooms and chicken wings were terrible.

By 7:50pm the bill was brought to the table without us asking for it which I think personally is very rude, we were still eating our mains.
We did mention all this to the staff & manager.

Will certainly not been coming back to the restaurant again!

We travelled from a neighbouring town (Ashbourne) to try the take away menu and were not dissapointed. Great food at a reasonable price and a promt collection with no hanging around. We will be back!

The All You Can Eat meal is not your usual buffet style but literally all you can eat from a selection of starters, mains, sides all freshly prepared and cooked. Crabmeat and sweetcorn soup was hearty and hot. Followed by probably the best duck and pancakes we have ever enjoyed! Again, hot and well presented. Main courses were filling with added Yueng Chow fried rice. The service was attentive and excellent. Would definitely recommend to travellers and locals in Belper. Good value for money.
