I recently visited Boscastle and had the good fortune of enjoying a meal at the Riverside. The food was amazing and the atmosphere and service was even better. I would definitely recommend this restaurant again to all my friends and family.

“Intimate dining at its best!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We chose to spend our anniversary here after winning a voucher towards a meal on facebook. The restaurant is warm & inviting with friendly welcoming service. Good choice on the menu & a great selection of wines. We both opted for steak. Mine was served on a sizzling platter while my husband who eats his blue was given the choice of sizzling platter or normal plate which he was impressed with. The restaurant was quite full even though it was out of season so booking is advisable. We had a lovely & shall be returning!!

“Superb food”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We attended a large family dinner at the restaurant and the food was of a very high quality. The choice of meals on offer was terrific for quite a small restaurant and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food whatever their particular choice. I had pollock wrapped in smoked salmon which was an orginal dish and so fresh. Beautifully cooked. The varied puddings looked and tastey wonderful and were very popular with all.
