Lovely place with its own private bridge over the river into a lovely beer garden. Lovely sandwiches for a leisurely lunch in the middle of walking Crackington Haven to Tintagel.

Had passed the place several times during our stay and finally decided to take the plunge on our final night. Not disappointed. Friendly staff serving quality food. We were almost the only people eating at 8.30 on a Friday evening but the place is intimate enough to cope with small numbers.

Our second visit to The Riverside Restaurant. Beautifully cooked fish dishes, I had crab lobster and prawn cocktail for a starter. It was lovely. Attentive, but not OTT service. Will definitely visit again soon.
