About us…

Rioja is a passion for us. We love to create a relaxed, friendly and memorable experience for everyone from the moment you step through the front door; into our grade II listed house, and our fantastic back garden seating space by the river.

Being a historic house we have 3 intimate dining rooms – each with a very informal, cosy, and relaxed atmosphere. The 4th room is the bar. It’s got its own buzz. Just pop in next time you are passing for a drink and a chat.

As real foodies ourselves, we have developed every dish with careful thought to bring out the true Spanish and Latin flavours to leave your taste buds tingling and wanting more. Overtime, we have added some traditional favourites as well as some broader world delicacies.

We are a family run restaurant so like to treat everyone as part of the Rioja family. Hence we take pride in making sure the service you experience is outstanding, not overbearing, and above all enjoyable. We want everyone to come back regularly to help create that family feel – for a drink, a meal, to enjoy some happy hour treats, socialise at our themed nights, and come celebrate those special occasions with your partner, friends and family (including us of cause!)
