We cannot thank Debs enough for her generous hospitality and for having to put up with us every morning for a week! Debs was greeted by us outside the Riverside every morning around 10 and always made us feel welcome as we took to our 'usual' seats. We are an electic bunch and made outer way through the entire hot... More

Had the full English breakfast at Riverside during our stay at Riverside Cottage. Food was cooked to order, tasty and plentiful. Service was really friendly

We have eaten lunch here on two separate occasions. Once in March and last week (7 October). Both times we'd walked from the top of the road beyond Watersmeet and needed food in Lynmouth. Price and tastiness made both meals great. We haven't stayed in the B&B but I'd think that would be equally as lovely! The cafe is quiet... More

On a fine autumnal day, we visited with our grandchildren. The friendly and efficient service was welcomed. The food was simple,hot and reasonably portioned. Price was fair, look no further if you are in the area.

We were in Lynmouth for five days and found this cafe's food well worth every penny. The atmosphere was very friendly and cheerful, the in-house made pasties were large &excellent great for taking walking.. Cream teas were again very good & scones again were made there.. Next time in the area we will certainly return..

A bowl of their delicious Mushroom and Wholegrain Mustard soup with a tasty wholemeal baguette, followed by three generous scoops of local ice-cream for pud served by our friendly waitress made our visit to the Riverside a pleasure. Well worth a visit.

This little place of contemporary blue and white stands out among the more traditional cafes in Lymouth. It looks very fresh (and could do with some freshening up with a damp cloth in places but that's a minor gripe). Home made soup - fantastic. Home made chilli - lovely, and a choice of rice, jacket or chips with it. Both... More

We stopped in the Riverside for lunch when we arrived in Lynmouth. The soup was amazing and so creamy. We wanted to eat in their on our secind night but unfortunately they had had a kitchen fire. Their vegetarian meal sounded delicious! We'll try it next time.
