An excellent value set menu. Good choice of interesting dishes utilising local ingredients, and skilfully crafted by a most experienced chef. A sound wine list with sensible mark-ups! Service is friendly and efficient. The location is outstanding in a beautiful part of the Welsh Marches. I could not imagine a nicer spot to base oneself on a holiday in this... More

I have to say that after a night here on Saturday, I will be returning. Ken welcomed us warmly and even called after I had booked to ask what time I would be checking in and if dinner was required. Its such a sweet warm and friendly place that you really cant fault any of it. The nice touches in... More

Just returned from our third visit to the Waterdine, where we stayed with some with some good friends. Ken and Isobel were on hand to make sure all our needs were catered for, with some lovely touches, such as tea and biscuits when we arrived, fantastic dining with fresh veg from the garden and a menu to suit all.

Just returned from an excellent Sunday lunch at The Waterdine to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were very impressed with the quality of food and found the portions just right. A 3-course lunch is just £22.50 per head, and a varied menu offers around 6 choices per course using locally-sourced, organic and free-range ingredients. We opted for duck & venison... More

We were staying in the locality - but not at The Waterdine. The people running the self catering cottage we were staying at said that they had eaten at the Waterdine and that the food had been excellent. We decided to book and we were not disappointed. We had a very warm welcome when we arrived and everything was freshly... More

We met a friend here for lunch, having been warned that one had to book in advance as they cannot accomodate casual callers. We received a warm welcome and had an excellent meal, with vegetables all from the kitchen garden. Despite being the only ones there service was not very speedy but we were not in a hurry so it...

We returned here recently for a short break for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Great food and hospitality, a comfortable bed and quiet surroundings characterises this restaurant-with-rooms. The local walking is also excellent on Offa’s Dyke, wonderful views on the days we were there. Ken and Isabel are still the hosts as they have been for over 12 years. A wonderful... More

I had visited many years ago when this was a local pub at the very heart of the community. The restaurant did wonderful food, they did bed and breakfast and you could still just pop into the bar for a drink. I am sure the new owners think they have turned this into a wonderful foodie paradise but to he... More

Thank you for your interesting comment especially considering the restaurant still does wonderful food, we still do bed and breakfast and you can still just pop into the bar for a drink. One salient point, we are not the new owners we have been here for 12 years. With so many village pubs closing due to lack of trade at... More

This is a wonderful place to stay and an even better place to eat. Afternoon tea came with delicious home made scones and dinner was as good as you'd find in a 5* restaurant. The only improvement my husband would like is draught beer in the bar. Good wine list. By the way the portions are generous, how anyone could... More

Thank you for your wonderful review, both Isabel and I are please that you enjoyed your visit. We regret that we had to discontinue draught beers in order to control the quality on low turnover. I know that the alternative bottled local ales will not meet the expectations of a real draught ale aficionados. More
