The Riverside Restaurant offers a choice of services when it comes to its restaurant.

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.

My husband and I visited this restaurant with our 3 daughters (one of whom is vegetarian) on the last night of our holiday. We had tried to book for the previous night but were told they were fully booked and finished serving at 8.00 so late diners beware! We managed to get a table for the following evening at 7.30...

I had dinner at the Riverside last week. The calamari starter was tasty and the steak and chips was also good with a nice peppercorn sauce. The food although good was typical pub food standard - nothing to write home about. It was quite highly priced for what it was but overall we enjoyed it.

Having been advised by a work colleague to give this place a try, I persuaded my husband that we should go for it instead of the other few that were there. We were not disappointed. As it was mid afternoon we decided to have the cream tea so I cannot comment on the cooked meals but the two scones (each)... More

Lovely setting, popped in last minute due to lack of electricity on our camp site, all booked up but squeezed us in with some juggling around, lovely food and good price. Ross was really interesting guy and nice to hear about local info. My husband had an in depth chat about Road Wars and German Shepherd dogs! Recommend this place... More

We had lunch here. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Seating overlooking the stream made for a nice setting. Food really good (soup and sandwich). Worth a visit.

I stopped here for breakfast with my children whilst camping just up the road. It's next to a pay and display car park but it's free before 10am so perfect for breakfast. My kids both had a full English breakfast, I just had a pot of tea and a slice of toast. It was all very nicely cooked. There is... More

Lovely spacious room (room 2) with good views over the bridge and out to sea. We booked dinner in the restaurant and had an excellent meal, several bottles of good Muscadet, all served by friendly and humorous staff. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked again for the November Sea Feast, but unfortunately Room 2 has already been... More

The food here was lovely but what really made it special were the extra friendly and helpful staff. We were a large group and we sat outside far away from the main restaurant - the poor staff had a lot of running back and forth to do but nothing was too much trouble - would definitely recommend.
