Been many times as it's convenient, however on this occasion and the last few things have gradually seemed slip. This is not a cheap place to eat so you do expect a bit more in terms of quality. Servers polite but seem inexperienced and at one point being served or asked questions by three different people is somewhat off putting... More

Having read the Waterfronts own reviews I had high expectations for our visit to the restaurant this evening, however to say our experience was disappointing is to put it mildly. Firstly we had to wait some considerable time for our drinks order to be taken, even though the restaurant didn't appear to have many diners, then we placed our food... More

Easter Monday and stopped off at the Union Wharf for lunch as we are narrow boat fans. We luckily got an outside table and so spent a wonderfully leisurely couple of hours watching boats come in and go out whilst wasting a delicious lunch I had a wild mushroom,leek and Stilton filo pie and my husband had a steak burger....

Just a few miles out of Market Harborough this restaurant is in a lovely location and provides an equally lovely ambience. Ideal for all the family the menu offers a good range of interesting and standard fare. Recommended when you want something really good without being pretentious.

The table was clean and tidy and the menu's came promptly, the restaurant was busy with one big table of 12 was fairly noisy. The... More

Took my mum here for lunch. We both chose from the 2 courses for £9.95, which was good value. She had crayfish cocktail which was a substitute for the potted shrimp. A good portion and very tasty. I chose the calamari which was a very meagre portion of about 6 thin and rather chewy rings served on salad leaves with... More
