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!
