I took a party of 18 adults to dinner here in March. Great food, friendly service, lovely atmosphere, excellent value - what more is there to say?

Have just returned from a most pleasant stay at The Riverside hotel and felt I just had to share my delight at finding this great place to stay. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly chap who immediately made us feel welcome. The room we were given was lovely. It had I believe been newly refurbished and the bathroom was spoltless with modern xtra large shower. The views from our room were second to none with dual aspect windows so views of the river and towards the harbour plus the sound of running water from the fast flowing river to lull you to sleep. We ate in the restaurant and had reserved a table ( adviseable as they get very busy) The dining room is delightful with again views over the river. The food was both inexpensive and really good with generous portions.The puds were exceptionally good with the sticky toffee pud getting a special mention! Again excellent service from all we encountered.They are a young team who without exception strive to make you feel special but with a relaxed and cheery atmosphere-no stuffiness here! Finally the breakfast -again what can I say except faultless. I'm now on a diet but cant wait to return to this lovely little hotel in lovely Boscastle-yep my new most fav place!!

A very warm welcome at a very busy restaurant.. The food is excellent, but be aware, the portions are very large. We eat there twice on a recent visit to Boscastle and had a good evening on both occasions. The wine list has a good selection of wines at reasonable prices. The total bill was very reasonable considering what we had eaten and drunk.
