Enjoyed a meal here. Varied menu. We are a party with vegetarians and meat eaters and all enjoyed their food. Staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is interestingly placed and has a brook running through the garden. We ate outdoors to the sound of running water. This hotel and restaurant has several aesthetic advantages. Indoors old charms are retained.... More

We are staying in Boscastle and we visited this pub/restaurant. It's a very nice setting with a little bridge at the back, which takes you to a lovely garden and seating area. Dog's are welcome on the garden as well.

We have eaten here twice now and have not been disappointed. Quaint riverside restaurant in the heart of Boscastle with a varied menu which is good value for money. Friendly and efficient staff. I opted for the crab salad on both our visits which was simply delicious, and my partner had the cheese ploughmans, both were beautifully presented and plentiful.... More

Over the years we have spent many happy holidays in Boscastle and have got to know quite a few of the locals as well as making friends with other holiday makers. We love the area and the pubs and facilities here are excellent. This year our usual B&B was unavailable and we booked 9 days at the Riverside Hotel. We... More

This is a great little hotel, in a very old building full of windy corridors. The rooms are a good size and the food was great. There's no bar area inside but you can sit outside, across the stream, which was nice.

The are several shops close by and it has a good bus service to Bude and Camelford. The room we had overlooked the Valency out onto the tea garden.... More

Everyone was friendly and our room tidy with a view of the river. The restaurant was delicious, and comfortable. My husband and I were particularly touched that when we were leaving too early for breakfast they made us a tray so we would not travel hungry-very kind.
