We booked the Waterfront for our wedding blessing reception - Stephanie and the team could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Everything was set up perfectly, the food was excellent (impressive given we had c. 50 people being served simultaneously), the surroundings are lovely and inside very cozy for both a meal and a dance floor! Couldn't have asked... More

The Waterfront is a nearby restaurant which I have visited on a few occasions. It is located in a very nice area of Harborough overlooking the water front (hence the name). I visited The Waterfront recently for a Christmas cabaret they held, involving musical theatre singers which was great entertainment. This was a set fee including a three-course meal which... More

So having been a couple of times in the Summer for lunch, I have to say there is nothing better than a cold vino and a sun filled table outside, chatting and taking in the view. Car parking, I have always found it hard to find a spot, but have managed in the end, for the view and a small... More

I went here for lunch - had fish which was nice enough but unremarkable. We hadn't booked and so did get tucked in a very draughty corner by the staff were nice and helpful about helping block the draught when mentioned to them. Had some nice wine tho I wouldn't recommend the house wine. In the summer it is lovely... More

So we thought we would give this place another try after 1 OK meal and 3 poor ones. It's been refurbished so thought it would be worth another try. Decor is nice new tables and chairs are nice, service is OK. Food is awfull. Calamari to start. I was a bit curious when it arrived within a couple of minutes.... More

A group of five of us visited the Waterfront for our Christmas meal which we were very much looking forward to, having heard good things! A member of our party called in advance to alert staff to the fact I am pregnant, and as such cannot eat some soft cheeses, pates, rare meat etc which they seemed to take on... More

My partner and I visit the Waterfront on a fairly regular basis and have always found the food to be very good, as is the service. The Waterfront is situated in a lovely spot right by the canal basin and is particularly pleasant in the summer months.

A totally renovated warehouse now hosting as one of the nicest restaurants in the area. Located just out of the centre of the town towards Leicester, this superb restaurant has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere with happy and very helpful staff. Perfect for a business meeting, a relaxed coffee, or as as we did, a nice lunch. Its location is idealic... More
