This place is lovely. I went for lunch and had the chicken and chorizo club sandwich. Very posh for a sandwich and lovely fresh ingredients used. A little more pricey for a sandwich than normal but you get what you pay for. I just wish places like this existed where I'm from. But I'll definitely return when back in the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our B&B during our stay in Braunton. We weren't disappoint, I had the best fish pie I've eaten and my wife enjoyed her fish cakes.. We're regulars in Braunton and will be revisiting on our next trip...

Took my friend there for her birthday at the weekend as I have been before and was very impressed. My friend is notoriously hard to please as she is a trained chef and used to manage several kitchens so I was nervous. However I didn't need to be because she loved it and couldnt find any faults which is unusual!!... More

13 of us went for New year's eve. The restaurant sensibly had a limited menu but the quality was super, the main course fish and venison options were very good. Also they catered for the young teenagers very well with a superb selection from the Children's menu. Everyone enjoyed their food. Staff were all very friendly and coped with our... More

Last minute impulse on a Sunday and so glad we found this place. Four of us very much in recovery from a crazy night before fancied a fry up but struggled to find somewhere that appealed. Riverside ticked all the boxes on first impression tho' a couple of us thought the 8 quid breakfast was going to take some justification.... More

We arrived ion the area and wanted some breakfast, they have great fresh food, and very large portions. Bit more on the pricey side but worth it!

The beginning of December and a quiet and chilly evening in Braunton. This did not stop the Riverside from providing excellent food and service. I was spoilt for choice but eventually plumped for the mussels with fennel bread and chips, excellent. My husband had venison burger which was also very good. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is nicely... More
