Arrived in Braunton, late evening to find that all restaurants fully booked. However, the Riverside did offer us a table outside and the evening was still very pleasant we accepted. They very kindly and repeatedly told us that if a table came available inside they would relocate us. The choice of food on both Main and Children's Menu was good... More

We arrived without a booking on Saturday night, but the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We were given a table, followed by a mouth watering steak and a delicious bottle of house wine. I was very impressed with the customer service and warm welcome. I will definitely be back soon.

The title says it all. This is open on a Sunday when other restaurants are shut, hence our booking. The mains we had were good, I ate salmon nicoise salad, my husband the pulled pork and pork ribs. The bottle of sparkling rose also hit the spot. We ordered bread and olives to start, huge hunks of bread arrived but... More

Lively, relaxed atmosphere, with great food and good service. We had crab samosas for starters, I had the thai style fish cake which was just delicious, and husband had one of the specials which was salmon, and melted in his mouth. I think it is the type of place you could take anyone and they would find something on the... More

Staff there were incredibly helpful and the chef willing to adapt any dish to fulfill customer needs.Speaking as a vegan, it is fair to say that I was overwhelmed by the choice presented... More

We had a birthday celebration meal at Riverside with excellent food and service including catering for one guest with vegan requirements.Staff were friendly and helpful and the menu gave plenty of choice - it was quite hard to decide! We hope to visit again when we are in this part of the world. Thank you.

If you are looking for an early morning breakfast in Braunton this is the place to go. Not the cheapest, but surely the best. Very helpful staff, food served piping hot and made to order.

Had a lovely breakfast here with my family in July 2014. The quality and size of the breakfast dishes is excellent. I had an open sausage and mushroom sandwich which was piled with mushrooms and accompanied by some lovely brioche toast and two great quality sausages. My other half had the full breakfast which was perfect and my daughter has... More
