Buffet of sweets, chocolates, ice cream and cookies

Why not try some of Riverside’s tasty hot or cold food to make their birthday party extra special? Not a party ring in sight. 

At Riverside, we provide catering as an optional extra for birthday parties. Catering is provided by Churchills, and all party food is freshly prepared. We offer a hot food or a cold food option for children. 

You can download the Riverside Cafe Party Menu.

  • Party catering can be arranged directly at least 14 days in advance of the party through our caterer Churchills. 
  • Please contact Churchills on 01245 290925 or email riverside@vertas.co.uk
  • If you would like to bring your own party food, CSAC, Dovedale and SWFLC each have an activity room available for hire, where children can enjoy their party food and drink. SWFLC also has Gym 2 available to hire.
  • If you would like to hire our party rooms, please inform us when you book.
  • Unfortunately, we can't offer self-catering as an option at Riverside, but you can bring along your child’s birthday cake!

If a child in your party has a food allergy or intolerance, please inform our party coordinator when booking your party. They can cater for most dietary requirements.
