This is a very strange place. From the outside it looks as if it might be a pub, but there is no sign. The only hints it may be a building open to the public are the semblance of a car park across the road a very small sign by the open door, and some old rolled up sample menus... More

We are so very sorry you did not enjoy your stay in our home at the Waterdine. What a shame you did not mention you dissatisfaction at the time, allowing us the opportunity to redress matters. You obviously prefer to skulk away and write a cacophony of damaging half truths where even welcoming you at the door, the offer of... More

We booked for a long Bank holiday weekend, looking for a out of the way B & B with great food, which Ken obviously has a passion to provide for his guests and restaurant customers. Our room was most comfortable and breakfast a delight with vast choice, looking out onto their wonderful garden and the surrounding hillside and local wildlife.... More

I visited the Waterdine with my parents in early March 2015. The whole evening was lovely. From helpful advice on taxis etc when booking the table, through to waving us goodbye, the hosts could not have been more helpful or attentive. The venue itself is lovely - beautiful and full of character but well-maintained. The welcome was warm and friendly.... More

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
