Great , friendly , welcoming service - excellently made flat white and a very generous sized toasted teacake with butter in a dish - rather than the usual packets ! Lovely to sit out in the sun in the late afternoon - great little place...More

Enjoyed an excellent meal here. The chilli beef starter had a wonderful mix of flavours, and the local pollack main course was excellent. My wife had a very good halloumi starter with a nice T-bone main.

We had cycled from Instow to Braunton. We were recommended this restaurant by two lovely ladies on the Tarka trail. My mum and I had a beautiful lunch. The toasted tea cake was massive and full of fruit. The Ploughmans sandwich was amazing. Great views...More

I don't know Braunton, and the area looked a bit iffy, but this is a great restaurant. Genuinely friendly, helpful and welcoming service made a great first impression. And the food was really very good indeed. An inventive and imaginative menu, with lots of options...More

This is a great place in Braunton. Have popped in for drinks (coffee and tea). This is great. Also you can sit outside, which is nice. Reasonably priced and good atmosphere. Will visit again.

As we prepared to leave Devon we wanted one last cream tea. The Riverside served up the best cream tea I've had! Two huge scones, huge pots of jam and cream and a good, strong pot of tea. Brilliant! Thanks!
