One of the great things about Dimmet is that you are an easy 10 minute walk from Braunton, and when hubby and I slipped down there for a sneaky night away (OK – to do some final jobs on the house ;-)) – we decided that we would treat ourselves to breakfast the next morning at the Riverside. We didn’t get up too early as they very conveniently serve breakfast from 8:45am until 11:45am – so we meandered down for an 10am breakfast.

We’ve been to The Riverside a few times and the food and service has been consistently excellent. We chose to sit outside as it was a sunny April morning – and placed our order. Breakfast arrived fairly promptly and, to hubby’s delight, consisted of black pudding, bacon, sausage, tomato, beans, 2 slabs of cornbread toast and a deliciously grilled mushroom.

Breakfast is a highlight of the day for my hubby, but a great breakfast plate can sometimes be let down by the accompanying tea and coffee. Not in this case, the tea and coffee were freshly made and really hit the mark – so I suspect that the Riverside is about to become a favourite breakfast haunt.

Next, sensing that I had a breakfast-happy husband, I took full advantage and took him round the shops in Braunton looking for 1970s pieces for Dimmet!

So many people recommended the Rock to us that we had to go and try it, and since then we’ve been back quite a few times. Tucked way in the gorgeous village of Georgeham, it really is one of the foodie destinations locally. Boasting a varied menu and extensive indoor and outdoor seating, they can cater for small tables and larger groups – but it’s usually best to book at busy times.

We have a seafood fan and a meat fan with our two boys, and they were both delighted to find a seafood platter and a huge homemade burger. The seafood tasted delicious with a freshness that only get near the sea, and it came with huge hunks of bread. Youngest son runs a burger ranking and this one shot into the top 3 – so it must have been good! On this trip hubby had the ham and leek pie and I had a falafel selection – the pie pastry was excellent and the filling very tasty. My falafel selection was lovely – I’m not a veggie but often opt for the vegetarian option and this was a very tasty and different option.

Service was quite quick and very pleasant. I loved the addition of juniper berries and raspberries to my gin & tonic! Prices were not too steep and portions were generous – so well worth a visit.
