The starters were OK as was the steak. However the fig and goat's cheese salad was smothered in a honey and balsamic dressing that masked the individual flavours and practically turned it into a dessert. I had to question whether whoever invented the dish had actually tasted it. Services was slow with a long wait between courses. The waiter spent... More

We went here as we fancied a brekkie. We have a lovely meal each, the full english and then my partner fancied a mix of some things on the menu and they made it. They ran out of sausages so i tried the veggie sausage instead, it was amazing! Very welcoming and really good food :)

Requested a teaspoon when finally cleared so I could give my 5yr old son some puréed fruit and dairy free custard (having explained to our first waitress that he was gluten and... More

A quiet Sunday evening, we had low expectations but were delighted by every aspect of our evening at the Riverside. The staff were a charming delight and we were very impressed by the menu and the food we received. Two of us had the best fish and chips we've had for a very long time. Family run, there was real...

A good, varied menu, everything we selected was high quality. The waitresses were delightful, friendly and very helpful without being intrusive. It was very busy the evening we were there, yet they maintained their calm and untroubled charm. The decor is attractive, but the restaurant suffers from a poor acoustic as it has done in all its previous incarnations, making... More

This is the best restaurant I have been to for ages. The place was clean, well laid out, staff were friendly and efficient. Food was very tasty with a nice choice of wine. Fish cakes were very flavoursome as was the delicious summer berry meringue sundae. Would definitely go again.

Stayed in braunton in august for a weeks holiday. This really is the best restaurant in braunton in my opinion. Excellent menu for adults and children, and nice that they were treated properly and not as an inconvenience like in other restaurants in the village. Excellent friendly staff, fast service and excellent food. Would definitely recommend, but book as they... More
