Issues with the beer quality now appear to have been ironed out with the appointment of enthusiastic brewer Joe Kenyon of CAMRA's Heavy Woollen branch - and some very interesting stuff has been cropping up on the bar recently such as Cherry Mild and a massively hopped 6% American IPA.
Upstairs, the award winning restaurant has remained popular with locals and tourists alike, providing the template for similarly successful projects at the White Horse, Emley and the Silver King in Ossett.
Overseeing the entire set-up is manager Vicky Stagg, who has been at Riverhead since pre-Ossett days, providing the necessary continuity to appease the locals as well as having an understanding of the requirements of Marsdens many visitors. For further details or to book a table, Vicky can be contacted on 01484 841270 (Pub) or 01484 844324 (Dining Room). (map)
