Looking at the website for the Riverside Garden Centre you might be mistaken into thinking that they don't sell plants - there is hardly a mention of them. Well to be truthful we can't find a single mention on their website of plants at all! We phoned them and they confirm that they do in fact sell plants and consider themselves to be a fully fledged "normal" garden centre.

They are best known for their barbecues. Riverside are one of the largest stockists of Weber barbecues in the UK. All the barbecues that the company produces are on display as well as all the accessories. So, if barbecues are on your shopping list then a trip to Riverside Garden Centre in Hertford is a must do. One whole side of the garden centre is brimming to the full with barbecues. As well as barbecues they also have a Pet Shop and an extensive Cook Shop.

They also have a fully fledged restaurant on site called the Whistling Duck. Don't think though that this is a garden centre cafe, it is really an upmarket restaurant with up market decor and very upmarket prices. For example, the a la carte menu lists fillet steak at 22.95 and Brochette of King Prawns and King Scallops at 21.95. Not only that, there is a 10% service charge on top of those prices. You may want to accompany your meal with some wine, a half bottle of Elysium Black Muscat will set you back 18.50.

They do serve less costly snack type meals but these are also pricey. Sandwiches are from 6.50 to 8, salads 9 and burgers 10. For those prices you get good food in extremely pleasant surroundings. The restaurant is closed on Mondays and they serve evening meals on Tuesday to Saturday. It was awarded the top 5 star rating for food hygiene in October 2013 by East Hertfordshire.

1 star rating 03 January 2013 Comment From: Janice
This was a lovely place to visit and in fact a week didn't go by when we wouldn't go for lunch - however since the advent of the Whistling Duck it is far too pricey for the likes of normal garden centre visitors. The plants are also in a very poor condition in my opinion. All in all I would not recommend the garden centre to anyone which is a pity as in the past I was always singing their praises.
