Went here on a family holiday and was really impressed. The place looked inviting and they were very accommodating. We had burgers and the salmon all of which were delicious and very generous portions. We were sad not to be able to sample any desserts but were all incredibly full! A definite must if visiting Braunton.

I went to the Riverside last night for the first time and absolutely loved it. I had the fish cakes and they were beautiful. The staff were very friendly and there is a good atmosphere. The menu all looks so lovely it was hard to choose - can't wait to go back.

We booked a table for 8pm on a Friday night in July for a party of 5, one of the problems we have is that often restaurants push 5 onto a table for 4 but not here we got a lovely table for 6 to share between the 5 of us. The menu is not large but has a lot... More

I've eaten in the Riverside on several occasions, with friends, my partner and even on my own. The food is always great, the staff are friendly so you feel more than welcome, even when you are dining alone. I've personally never had a fault here and always felt everything was above and beyond expectations, especially for the prices. However, this... More

Visiting Braunton 8/9 times a year we can rely on The Riverside to be open, welcoming and always ready to serve a tasty meal with a smile and a laugh. Quality interesting menu with daily varied specials. Plenty of fresh fish. Families, romantic couples, celebrating friends. all are at home.

We have dined at the Riverside 3 times by now. Each time the staff was particularly friendly, the food was every time a treat. Lots of choice of different fish dishes and really well cooked. I would recommend the Riverside to anyone who would like to have something different than a fish and chips or a typical salmon dish. I... More

5 of us arrived on Fathers Day for an evening meal, the staff were attentive and the food was just amazing. One of the group eats out all over the country regularly and said it was the best steak she had ever had. Many thanks to all the staff.

Superb food, with attentive service. This could not be faulted at all. There was a good menu with lots of fish dishes. We went on a Sunday night and although small it accommodated everyone well.
