Had lunch at the Waterfront today, great setting but was abit disappointed in our meal, as it was a hot day all we wanted was a sandwich so we both ordered a beef and horseradish ciabiatta which came with salad and chips, l was disappointed that the beef was like the cheap sliced beef you get from supermarkets, as we...

The staff are pleasant and make you feel welcome. You can eat wither inside or out. Placed on the side of the canal basin there is always sometheing going... More

Having been here a few times, we've never been disappointed. It's a lovely place to sit outside when the sun is shining. Equally as lovely inside. Staff always seem friendly, the food is good. Just one minor point, the staff do need to check more regular for top up drinks for customers sat outside.

Same to the Waterfront for a family birthday. Everything moved along at a nice relaxed pace so there was plenty of time to chat as well as eat. I have the carvery, you get a choice of 1, 2 or 3 meats and as much of the veg etc. as you want. They only have bottled beers but they were... More

Mooring in the canal basin makes the Waterfront a must. But book a table to guarantee a table in this popular eating place. First visit after a year on a Saturday lunch-time led to us booking for the following lunch-time for their carvery. Friendly, good service, but can be crafty on a windy day if your near the door onto... More

We visited for Sunday lunch; three of the party had the carvery and the other something from the menu. The Carvery was excellent with three choices of meat and also a choice of portion size ( priced accordingly). All the food was very good and reasonably priced. The ambiance of the building ( a former warehouse) was good and the... More
