We ate from day time menu but were only allowed to eat in the garden even though they were empty inside when we arrived and only two tables had people at them when we left, it was a nice day so this was fine and the view along river was ok. Food was nice but nothing to write home about;... More

A pretty restaurant, lovely garden area, on the river. Beautiful food, not too pricey and good quality. Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. Loved the meal we had, was awesome! Had a lovely time and look forward to going back and sampling more of the menu. Recommended!

Lovelly carvery, need a more varied lunch menu for those who don't want carvery. Wasn't help yourself either, they seem to plate everything you'd like for you. Fine though as you get a massive plate full and it is rather a runny. Beautiful outside aswell

We called in here to grab lunch before travelling home and glad we did. Weather was fine so we sat out the back over the bridge and it was absolutely beautiful. Decent pub type menu but really reasonable prices and food was lovely. Would definitely come back if we return to boscastle.

We visited Boscastle in Cornwall today and decided to have lunch at the riverside restaurant in the middle of town. The location of the restaurant is very nice and the outdoor setting and the food more than satisfactory. However there was one thing which have made our visit less satisfactory then it should have been. After placing our order for... More

Stopped for a spot of lunch here after climbing the cliffs around Boscastle. The food and service were both very good and not over priced

Visited with my mother and two children. Lovely menu - we could all happily have chosen anything. All the food was beautifully cooked, and the service friendly and attentive. It was great to find a restaurant serving a more interesting selection than you normally get, but even the fish and chips was a cut above the normal! A great meal... More
