As one of the most popular riverside restaurants in Maidenhead we are constantly striving to delight our customers with new and wonderful things!

Our new classics menu has now been launched to ensure that diners of all tastes can find something they enjoy – from adventurous starters to delicious sharing plates.

Just arrived from a day trip at Thorpe Park and want to eat lunch at 4pm? No problem! We are one of the few restaurants in Maidenhead who serve food throughout the day – ensuring that your itinerary does not have to revolve around when you can get a meal!

Feeling Hungry?

With a great selection of classic starters, guests at the Blue River Cafe can enjoy old favourites such as:

Homemade soup freshly made daily & served with a crusty roll
Classic prawn cocktail with a marie rose sauce, crispy lettuce & buttered bloomer bread
Deep fried brie with cranberry dip & salad
Mushroom risotto drizzled with truffle oil & topped with shaved parmesan
Chicken liver pate with apple & ginger chutney served with warm toast
Moules marinière in a rich white wine & garlic butter sauce with crusty bread

Following your starter, why not tuck into one of our classic main courses which are already receiving fabulous feedback – especially the beer battered fish and chips (featuring our closely guarded secret recipe!)

Choices include:

Beer battered fish & chips – catch of the day in a beer batter with mushy peas, chips & tartar sauce
Homemade beef & ale pie – buttered mash, seasonal vegetables & a jug of gravy
Hunters chicken – chicken breast, cheese & bacon in sweet BBQ sauce
Sausage & mash –  cumberland sausages, buttered mash & onion gravy
Braised beef cheek – creamy mash, glazed carrots, dumplings & gravy
Steamed mussels – served with crusty bread
Curry of the day – served with rice & naan bread baked
Sea bream – with buttered new potatoes & seasonal vegetables

Dining with Friends?

Why not sample one of our popular sharing plates that are perfect for friends or couples.  Who could resist our classic nachos – smothered in cheese, salsa, guacamole and sour cream. The perfect dish to satisfy that 5pm hunger after work!

Lovers of seafood can tuck into our fritto misto platter that features smoked mackerel, smoked salmon, whitebait and squid rings, served with mouth watering dipping sauces and flat bread.  For ravenous appetites, fear not – our meat platter will certainly take the edge off that hunger with ribs, meatballs, chicken goujon, garlic bread and onion rings!

All served with a smile by our friendly waiting staff.

Did Someone Mention Free Dessert?

That’s right! Not only have we launched an increasingly popular new classics menu but for those customers ordering both a starter and main course on a Friday or Saturday – dessert will be on us! Completely free of charge.
