River Bar Washington


At River bar, you’ll find authentic Southern American inspired BBQ soul food, tucked away on the banks of Washington. From the kitchen, you’ll find mouth-watering low n’ slow smoked ribs and meats, paired with classic sides like their house slaw, Cajun wedges and BBQ beans. Slow cooked, messy food made with love and perfect for sharing.  

Drinks are their passion and speciality, especially cocktails! Behind the bar you’ll find some of the most creative mixologists around, with the skills to create the most impressively complex array of cocktails in town. Their dynamic menu takes inspiration from the US with classic tipples you know and love like the NY Cosmo or the Long Island Ice tea nestled amongst their own tantalising inventions.
