“The place to eat in Boscastle.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We eat here alot. We visit the area at least twice a year and we always come and have a meal.
Food is always excellent. Well priced for the quality. All be it if Its a cream tea, fish n chips, or a proper 3 course evening meal. they never fail. The sunday lunch carvery is just awesome.
couple of years ago we visited with the wifes parents. And booked a table for an evening meal for the father in laws birthday. And to our complete suprise, of there own back they placed us in a corner, and decorated the table and the corner with ballons and alsorts of birthday decorations. How cool was that!!! Great food, great service, great drink. What more can toy want?

“Just plain excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

After being let down by fish food restaurants in north cornwall our faith in the coastal town was restored by The Riverside restaurant. The decor is above what is expected for the area and the food was just excellent. Would highly recommend The Riverside restaurant.

“Excellent meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We both had the Seafood Thermidor - absolutely superb, with an excellent dry white wine.
One of the best seafood dishes we have had anywhere.
