Modern British dining in Regency Sidmouth

AA Inspector

At a glance

Open all year
Private dining
Wines by the glass

The name may suggest Cannes or Las Vegas, but Devon has its very own version of seaside grandeur, and the spotless bow-fronted Riviera is a prime example of it. Tables on an outdoor terrace make the most of the summer weather, and a menu of gently modernised British cooking has something to cater for most tastes. Kick off with warm lobster and crab mousse, or perhaps chicken liver parfait with sweet red onion marmalade. Mains encompass grilled Dover sole, Devonshire steaks cooked on the grill, and roast duck breast served with its braised leg and rösti potato. Finish off with the likes of raspberry parfait.
