Riverside restaurant review, Westcliff on sea, Essex

‘The Arches’ on the seafront of Westcliff on sea’ are a row of café/restaurants offering an assortment of British dishes, including roast dinners and fish and chips, but they are variable. For a long time, I didn’t keep a note of the ones I did or didn’t like, until recently, due to getting let down at the more inferior ones.

The Riverside is the last one I went to and I do believe it is my favourite, since I remember the restaurant as being double the size of the others.

We had a full English breakfast, and it was lovely – all freshly cooked and very good quality ingredients – the bacon and sausage in particular. We did try a different one first, but on asking if they used bloomer bread, they said no, and so we tried the Riverside which had fresh bloomer on offer. To me, that is the ultimate bread for a breakfast – who needs sliced bread (wonder loaf)? (it is particularly bad for me since I don’t promote eating the palm oil used in most sliced bread).

The staff are friendly and efficient and it’s nice and warm inside in the winter, unlike some of the others.
