Classes
Alasdair’s aqua classes are fast and energetic, and can often be very full! He makes the most of the water’s natural cushioning effect, which is great for those of you with sore knees or hips, as you’ll doing things you might not be able to manage on land! These classes always give you as much of a cardiovascular workout as possible and often also include some resistance work at the end, using water dumbbells or noodles to train specific muscle groups against the natural resistance of the water. Exercises you may be doing in these classes include star jumps, tuck jumps, and even kung fu kicks! Suitable for 16-70 year olds.

THE TANNERY BAR & BISTRO

The building dates back to 1626 and, as the name suggests, was originally a tannery and home to renowned makers of leather for 250 years.

Our Tannery Bar & Bistro offers a wide selection of tasty pub food with daily specials.

The bar area provides a good alternative for those diners preferring a more relaxed atmosphere or those wishing to eat with their dogs alongside.

On warmer days guests can take a seat on our balcony overlooking the river and see if they can spot any passing otters.

Food is served in the bar at lunchtime, 12noon-2pm and again in the evening 6pm-9pm

RIVERVIEW RESTAURANT

Dining at the Riverside Hotel is a real pleasure. Our à la carte menu offers a wide choice, using locally grown fresh produce whenever possible, some of it from our own Victorian kitchen garden in Grange-over-Sands. We can cater for any dietary requirements and offer a special menu for children.
