Our B & B host recommended "The Riverside" and booked for us - just as well very busy on July Monday evening. We were immediately seated, and offered drinks whilst we studied the restricted (always a good sign!) menu. We majored on fish dishes which proved a good choice, really fresh fish well prepared and with imaginative accompanying fresh vegetables.... More

We visited The Riverside and sat outside across the bridge. A lovely setting watching the ducks and listening to the river tumbling below. We had soup and a roll and because I have Coeliac Disease and can only eat gluten free food, I was very impressed that the waiter brought out GF bead with my GF soup which was homemade... More

We stayed in Boscastle for a couple of days. Had a lovely meal here on the first night- can highly recommend the mango and Brie parcels! Staff were friendly. Only one loo though, which can be tricky if restaurant full.

We went here for a snack and had the most delicious egg mayo sandwich ever! Friends had gorgeous scones, served to us as we sat by the river over the charming wooden bridge. Staff very professional, everything just perfect, so we went back a couple of days later. As we knew what we wanted we tried to order on the... More

We have eaten here twice now and have not been disappointed. Quaint riverside restaurant in the heart of beautiful 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... More

Treated myself to a delicious breakfast here whilst staying in Boscastle. I sat out the back with my Newfy puppy and it was absolutely glorious. Had the maxi breakfast which was delicious, really tasty sausages and all the staff were really welcoming and friendly. Great place, will definitely visit again.
