Riverside Inn Saltford


Riverside Inn

Saltford Marina, The Shallows, Saltford, Bristol

The Riverside Inn is set in a beautiful location within picturesque surroundings beside the Kelston lock, on the River Avon.  This imposing site has the benefit of five En-suite rooms, riverside bar (40), main carvery and dining room (80) upstairs bar (55) and conservatory (32) with views over the river and marina.  There is also ample external seating overlooking the river and a large car park (50).


Trading Potential

The Riverside sits in a beautiful location on the banks of the River Avon next to Kelston lock and Saltford marina midway between Bristol and Bath.  This imposing site is hugely popular with cyclists, walkers and has a reputation for its carvery offering.  The site benefits from five en-suite letting rooms, a riverside bar, main bar area and large dining room, this leads through to the conservatory and out to the roof terrace with bistro furniture.

We feel that the business would benefit from a menu change and re-marketing the accommodation via social media and the web to enhance the profile of the site.


New Business Partner Profile

The ideal new Business Partner here will be an experienced operator with a sound knowledge of managing a high volume food led site, with the ability to control letting room bookings.  Have the drive and enthusiasm to make the Riverside a “must visit” site throughout the year, through quality of offer and excellent customer service.
