The Riverside Restaurant offers a choice of services when it comes to its restaurant. For a formal affair with the evening restaurant set-up elegantly for a superb dining experience, here you can choose from an à la carte menu with exceptional food complemented by an extensive list of fine wines. Alternatively, the daytime tearoom is perfect for informal lunches, meals and afternoon teas. Leading from the dining room is access to our exclusive tea garden next to the running waters of the River Valency.We have recently been awarded the CHEFS (Cornwall Healthy Eating and Food Safety) Silver Award. We are proud to hold the above award which means that The Riverside will be able to display the distinctive blue logo, which tells customers that it has adopted and maintains a high degree of food safety and standards, provides and promotes a selection of local foods as well as using healthier cooking methods.

Visited this restaurant with family. My sister-in-law and special diet needs and the restaurant catered for this without question. Food was wonderful and the staff were great. Will certainly visit next time we are in Cornwall. Highly recommended.

A charming pub with a good Sunday roast. It’s nice spot to sit outside on the canal and watch the passing parade.

If you are in the area you must not hesitate to eat in the Riverside! Never before we ate fish so perfectly cooked and nicely aromated as there. They serve nice, freshly made, tasty dishes for an honest price, the wine also has a fair price. The restaurant is very cosy, the staff is very friendly, we just loved it,... More

amazing scones with clotted cream, Jam and lovely latte! And dog friendly in the front ground floor which is lovely. But scones fresh out of the oven take some beating, amazing taste of Cornwall. Popular venue as well, with friendly staff.
