We made a special detour for this meal of marvellous locally caught fish and were not disappointed. Excellent friendly service, even though everyone was arriving like a drowned rat from the strong wind/rain outside.

Description
the Riverside Restaurant enjoys a prime location with large picture windows overlooking the river Brit, but that is just one element of it's charm. It's also a pioneer in it's use of local produce to create truly special fish and shellfish dishes - along with alternative meat and vegetarian options which change on a daily basis.
