Fodor's Expert Review Riverstation
Occupying a former police station, this modern, clean-lined restaurant affords serene views over the passing swans and boats. Upstairs, the more formal restaurant serves delicately cooked dishes like grilled Iberico pork with morcilla (Spanish blood sausage) and panfried sea bass, while the bar has a more rough-and-ready menu that includes warm savory tarts and rump steak. Irresistible desserts include chocolate marquise with mascarpone and salt-caramel ice cream, and ginger sponge pudding with caramelized apples and vanilla ice cream. With its terrace seating, this place also makes a great spot for a weekend brunch, afternoon coffee, or evening drinks.
