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

Went here for lunch on the recommendation of friends. We'd been craving a cream tea all week and elected this place to fulfil this. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was very busy but they made us feel most welcome with our pushchair while we waited for a free table. The cream tea was excellent. A pot of tea with... More

We visited The Riverside on the strength of a local recommendation and were not disappointed. This restaurant offed us a friendly welcome and great food. Our children (11 and 9) enjoyed the offerings from the kids menu and we were really delighted with the adult offering.

Came here our first afternoon in Braunton, and had a very nice time. The menu provides a variety of options ranging from burger and chips to a really healthy salad option and everything in between, good service and a really cute/chic interior. Outdoor seating looked nice too. Yeah, doubt you will suffer...
