Excellent Christmas party - fantastic three course dinner beautifully presented. Full of flavours. Service was exceptional. Staff were polite. Food was delicious. The restaurant was very very busy but staff were on top of it all. Very very highly recommended.

I was with a group of 17 work colleagues and had booked for a company team dinner. It was impressive how without pre-ordering our food, all the orders were taken promptly and received really efficiently, which can only be down to the great service we received. The Waitress was extremely happy and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and in addition the food was great. We also really appreciated that at the end of the meal, the Waitress kindly found an area within the bar for us all to gather and finish our drinks, although as it was so comfortable, we stayed until the bitter end. Thank you Riverstation, you gave Future Medical a great evening!

My company were entertaining half a dozen guests, a total of 11 people. To my surprise we had been booked into the private dining room. It was a really nice touch which made the evening all the more special. Excellent service and superb food, good value. Many thanks for a lovely evening, we will be back.
