Nice food and great service

We use this restaurant fairly regularly, they provide good quality food at sensible prices. It is a smaller type of restaurant, and has good waiting staff, plus they have tables and chairs outside, and their San Miguel is always in good condition

They couldn't have been more helpful!! They were patient, helpful, knowledgeable and creative! Lovely lunch. Fantastic service, attentive waiting staff, gorgeous setting, delicious food! A big leap of faith to be catered for when you have children and family members with food intolerances. Brilliant! Thank you.

Our first visit to Braunton after Satnav took us via the tiniest lanes to get there - nearly 6 hours from London! No matter, The Riverside was happy to serve us a glass of wine, sweet potato wedges, beetroot aioli, freshly made hummus, and fab olives by way of a late lunch. The best welcome we could have had.

We visited for afternoon tea. The staff were friendly, the food tasty and well presented, we sat outside due to having the dog with us, however going inside to order the seating area looked nice, the choice of music was a little pub-like and the bar area a little tired but don't let that put you off as the food...

I can only say that if you want to sample a really good English breakfast then this is the place to go. I live in Devon and travel 25mins to come here and have my black pudding and apple sausage fix, with all the trimmings. You've got to try it. I'm not on commission - it really is great! Sometimes...

Driving through Braunton I checked the restaurants by using my TripAdvisor app and decided to try this one. Great decision, lovely building and decor. Waitress was "amazing " (her favorite word,but as she was young and cute we just giggled). Met some great locals and enjoyed yummy food and wine. Definitely one to visit.

Food always lovely, staff always helpful and friendly, coffee lovely! Can't praise it enough! Occasionally busy which can slow things down a bit, but that's to be expected. Nothing ever too much trouble if you want to adapt something on the menu

This has become a regular haunt, breakfast, coffee, brunch and supper, the menu's are all good. Good value, appropriate portion size, very pleasant staff even when busy. Smart, modern surroundings, seating inside and out. Feed the ducks, relax and enjoy good coffee.

Rang to book a table for the bank holiday weekend in May and asked if you could have the table all evening. I was told that on busy periods over weekend they operated sittings. So decided to go for a week day evening. Can say we were not disappointed, the meal was for two adults and a 12 year old.... More
