“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely brunch a the Riverside Restaurant. I had the Cornish cream tea, which was absolutely delicious. The scones, jam, clotted cream and coffee were all perfect. My partner had bacon and eggs on toast and commented that the eggs were the best and freshest he's had throughout the UK. Service was friendly, and we were even happier when the total bill ended up under 10 quid! We will definitely be back!

“Great English breakfast”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Have had lunch here before (which was very good) and was not disappointed with the full English breakfast - one of the best I have had. Well cooked and plenty of it. Cheerful service in clean surroundings. Dog friendly. Highly recommended.

“Dog friendly, average pub food”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

A convenient location on the bridge, dog friendly in the bar area, the service was friendly. Food was traditional basic pub food which was fine but nothing special. A tasty toasted sandwich and an uninspiring burger. A good pit stop for lunch with a dog but not a gourmet experience by any means.

“Good place to have a little bite | Nice food and Service”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Well the area is beautiful and limited to where you can eat. I like it here. It is snug and warm and i love the views of the river that flows beside the restaurant. I have come here twice and have tried various lunch light bites from Sandwiches to the chowder. It was nice.

“Best Breakfast in Cornwall!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

I recently had breakfast at this establishment and I would say that the breakfasts here are the best in Cornwall. The quality of the food is excellent and the service and portion sizes are spot on! I will be back!
