........ Is getting closer, and therefore another roast at the riverside. Missed it last week by trying somewhere else, won't make that mistake again. Fantastic. Haven't been on here for a while and have to say I'm finding some of the reviews on here a tad surprising, who doesn't like blue cheese on a burger?!

Visited with friends who live in the village. Good variety of food on the menu and difficult to choose. My wife and I went for the fish pie and our friends burgers. The food was good - tasty and hot. However, the portions, especially the burgers, were huge. The mash on our fish pies, whilst good tasting, could have been... More

Perfect for a leisurely breakfast - open when other places aren't for brekkie. Child friendly - did smaller portions of whatever our 3 year old wanted. Good coffee. Will be back when we next visit the area on holiday.

I came to The Riverside on the 15th for a surprise birthday meal, which i was worried about at first due to my dietary needs. I was more than surprised when the waitress took her time to talk me through the menu, at this point she explained everything is cooked to order meaning they could meet my requirements. The food...

Wife and I visited November. Very poor food. I had chicken. Tasteless, dry and tough and obviously reheated. Wife had beef ribs, again reheated.Poor texture. Gave it one star as waitress very attentive and pleasant. Won't be going again.

We were in the middle of a rather boring stay at an hotel in Woolacombe ,but we found Braunton and then this restaurant - which was an antidote to our hotel "experience". Fresh seasonal and well cooked,the menu provided an excellent choice taking into account variable appetites,tastes and budget. Service was charming and impeccable. We could have wished that we...

My husband and I were staying in a B&B locally and had seen a card in our room advertising this place, we went along one wet & windy evening in November, we were given a warm welcome by the waitress and as it was early evening, had the choice of were we could sit. Although there were a few more... More
