Luke and I wanted to thank you and all the staff for organising our wedding reception earlier this month. Thanks for dressing the room, it looked beautiful and the afternoon tea was delicious! We would definitely recommend the venue to people Thanks again Love from Mr and Mrs Sampson X X X
Lisa/Aimee, I hope you’re both well. Can you please pass on a massive thanks to Aimee and the rest of the team for Friday’s event, the venue as always is absolutely stunning and the food was gorgeous, we really appreciate you looking after us and hopefully see you again next year! Many thanks
Hi Lisa, I would also like to thank both you and the staff at the Riverside for what was a fantastic evening. I am as you probably noticed a rank amateur when it comes to events like proms, if it wasn’t for your expert guidance and patience with me it would never have been anything like it was. So thanks again for all the effort and time you gave me, and for the wonderful evening that the students enjoyed. Many thanks Mark
Hi Lisa, Could I ask you to pass our sincere thanks in to Lord please? The meal last Saturday was exceptional and there has been numerous compliments and everybody I have spoken to said that the food and service were excellent!! We think it is important to acknowledge when we receive service we feel over and above and this certainly is one of those occasions! Putting this with the service we receive from the Riverside and you in particular is a fundamental part of our organising and what makes our nights different fun and one that everyone who attends enjoys! So please pass our thanks on to all the staff, to Lords and of course a massive thank you to you!! Regards Garry
Hi Lisa just wanted to say what a brill time we all had on Saturday night. So many people commented on how fabulous the room looked, the food was good and Amy looked after us very well too (please pass on our thanks to her). Thanks again for everything, Michala & Jon Geldard
Hi Lisa, Just wanted to send a quick email to say thankful for making our wedding the most perfect day! Everything went perfectly on the day and can you pass our thanks onto the staff for their polite and professional manner! Also thank you for your support throughout the whole process leading up to the day! We will definitely recommend your services to our friends and family in the future! Many Thanks, Adrian and Claire
Hi Lisa What can we say about the Riverside other than excellent! We are so pleased we chose them for our reception venue. From start to finish from contacting them to book the wedding, through the planning/contact and finally the big day was absolutely fantastic! They are professional but friendly and to make any change is no hassle and they will try to accommodate your request. We were so impressed with how the room was decorated. Everything that we provided they knew exactly how this needed to be set up and we were so pleased it looked just how we imagined. We would definitely recommend on booking the Riverside whether it be for your wedding or any other occasion, we can safely say you will not be disappointed!! All that is to say is thank you so much for all of your hard work! Thanks Mr and Mrs Ward xx

I wanted to thank you and your colleagues for organising the wonderful Valentine's Ball last Saturday. It was our 4th ball and we enjoyed it as much as ever. Our group of ten had been looking forward to it and our anticipation mounted as we glimpsed through the doors into the function room and saw how beautifully the tables had been decorated. The meal was very good as usual. We had only just started our soup course when one of our guests said "can we book this again for next year?" I am not sure whether he meant the soup or the event - the soup was delicious. The disco was very good and Franklyn was brilliant. The way he knows his audience and chooses songs accordingly, and the way he interacts with folk as he wanders round the room singing is impressive. Another of our guests said "what brilliant night it was". Looking forward to next year already!
Lisa, Thank you so much for another fab night, lovely food, lovely atmosphere, beautiful details, an absolute bargain well done!!
Dear Lisa, I write on behalf of the Mayor and Mayoress and all at the Town Council to thank you and all the staff at The Riverside, especially Aimee, for their part in ensuring that this year's Remembrance Day commemorations were such a great success again. It was an incredible turnout as always, with estimates suggesting around 800-900 people in attendance. I know that a great many of them crossed the road to The Riverside for refreshments and the staff managed them brilliantly. I appreciate how difficult and stressful it can be to manage an influx of that number of people and I'd be grateful if you could pass on our sincere thanks for helping to make the morning that bit extra special. Yours sincerely, Karen Douglas, Town Clerk, Whitworth Town Council.
I would like to thank each and every member of staff for their hard work and making the wedding on 05/09/14 of my nephew Lewis and his bride Casey such a wonderful occasion, thank you to you all
