We came across The Riverside whilst wandering around Buckingham and enjoyed a lovely brunch: large portions, very tasty and reasonably priced.

Always a favourite of mine for breakfast and daytime snacks, the new owners seemed to have improved on the excellence of their predecessors. Great food, the best coffee in town, with owners and staff who have a great sense of humour. Would write more but it's time for breakfast ...

"Magnificent" said my 11 year old son....... "The best hot chocolate i've ever tasted" said my 9 year old son. They gobbled the lot including the full English breakfast. Super fast and friendly service. A must place to breakfast in Buckingham town. I'm looking forward to trying the lunch offerings on my next visit.

Today we went for brunch as a Sunday treat, well I wished we hadn't bothered now pancakes just warm, sausages raw inside, first coffee really quite nice, second was awful and watery!! Place was freezing cold with no welcoming atmosphere, didn't want to make us hang around and enjoy our meal. I have been there twice before and both times... More

The food in here is great (and so are the milkshakes). I've only been in for lunch and don't go if you're in a rush because service takes a while. But the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is very good and very reasonably priced.

I usually rave about the Fireside's breakfast to friends, so was looking forward to meeting friends for Sunday breakfast. Unfortunately, breakfast wasn't up to its usual standard. Overcooked eggs on the full English & barely warm mediocre pancakes 😔 Coffee was excellent though ... We'll give them another chance ... please do better next time

I wrote a review about The Fireside towards the end of last year - and hadn't been back since because of the poor experience we suffered. I'm all for second chances so today I thought I'd go back and give it another go, as I was having a bit of craving for pancakes! I so wished I hadn't. I walked... More

Visited for our first time recently and were a little disappointed. The place feels like it has great potential and that it was a new place with normal start-up niggles. The food was great, when it arrived, but there was no mention of a delay
