Myself and the family visit this restaurant regularly. There is always a freshly baked quiche and desserts. Salads are crisp and delicious and there is a good selection of fillings ffor baked potatoe and bagettes. They do good childrens portions too and it is very child friendly. They do a delicious fresh fruit pavlova! Yummmm

Stopped at Newton Stewart for a coffee and comfort break. Decided on the Riverside as it was close to where we parked. It is upstairs and when we entered were pleasantly surprised by the cottage style decor. Table service. Excellent coffee and scone. Just what was needed. Would recommend.
