We had a Sunday carvery here today and can say it was excellent. We had a sample of all the meats available and we both agreed it was up with the best we have ever tasted. The service was great and delivered with a smile. We highly recommend the food

Just returned from a stay in Boscastle and ate at the Riverside on Saturday night. Although there was a large Birthday party booked the service was excellent. Even though it is the winter menu the selection is excellent and the food beautiful. We will certainly return when we visit Boscastle again.

Have dined at The Riverside many times over the years, since moving to the area, several years ago. The food is excellent, especially the Sunday lunch and is great value for money - have never had a 'bad' meal there. Service is un-hurried and welcoming.

We called at Boscastle while on a trip to Cornwall and needed some lunch on a cold bleak day. Entered and the welcome was a warm as the restaurant. Having had a breakfast at our hotel I didn't want a huge lunch, I just happen to fancy something from the breakfast menu that officially finished bat 12.00 noon. They confirmed... More

Had their all-day breakfast, which was very filling and pleasant, but why oh why do they have to use Economy Sausages, really let the meal down, won't bother going again

I treated my Wife to a meal here on the last night of our holiday (28/10/16) as it was her Birthday the day after. The food was superb, I fully recommend the Fish Dishes. The service was good and the staff really friendly.

The Hotel advertisers a Sunday Carvery on the website. When you arrive very nice, when you get to the carvery it's more of a plated roast. Two small slices of meat carved(don't ask for more you will not like the horrible stare for the rest of your meal) once you have your meat, sml spoons of vegetables are served to... More
