We must have been to this restaurant at least once a year for the last 10 years. The Riverside Restaurant has to serve the freshest fish I have ever eaten, short of catching it myself. There is a friendly low key atmosphere, the menu is standard fish restaurant, all nicely presented, but we rarely can be tempted away from their... More

Went here on the advice of some friends who live nearby as we were on our way down to Devon. After a walk along the beach and up along the cliffs we were hungry and were not disappointed. A very creative menu with lots of local fresh seafood. Service was good too. We were initially seated at one table, but... More

We have been going here for many years, and have never yet been disappointed. The dishes are always of a very high quality. Primarily this is a seafood restaurant, however there are alternatives available all of which have been very good. The wine list compliments the dishes very well, and the selection of coffee afterwards finishes off a great meal.... More

We had been looking forward to celebrating our anniversary at this lovely waterside restaurant and it never disappoints. The food is absolutely outstanding and the service is friendly and always professional. As well as the wide choice of fresh local seafood, the vegetable choices are interesting and meat-eaters are well catered for as well. Everything is beautifully cooked and attractively... More

We had our 2 miniature schnauzers with us so I was expecting to have to sit outside, but the nice staff let us sit in the bar area - light, open, airy. Unpretentious and delicious is how I'd describe the food. There was a set 3 course lunch menu for £22 but we were unable to resist straying off piste... More
