Canalside lunch

Great food and something for everyone on the lunch menu (including two children) - a particular favourite was the pistachio ice cream and meringue. What a wonderful setting - special thank you to a very obliging chef and attentive staff. We arrived by narrowboat and moored outside. Can... read more

Having read lots of great reviews, I have to say I was extremely underwhelmed by the whole experience. Firstly the laminated menu did not offer a great choice, but the food was also average at best. More disappointingly was to be served shop bought plain meringues in place of the pistachio meringues that were on the menu and ordered!! Needless... More

We went to the Waterfront as a party of 7 on a Saturday night and, as expected, it was quite busy. It wasn't busy enough, however, to warrant the two and a quarter hours it took us for a three course meal. A 20 minute wait for the starter was followed by a 40 minute wait between that and the...

Excellent food and reasonably priced. Only visited this as I had forgot to get food out of the freezer on the boat. We were not going to visit as we had already sampled the food and prices at their sister establishment. The Foxton Inn, which we rated and overpriced and not good value for money. This however is on a... More

We called in here having gone for a walk hoping for a drink and / or snack before driving home. It was just after 3pm on a Sunday- there were some couples outside with drinks so we chose a table. I proceeded to try and find the entrance....not easy and was greeted at the bar by a young lady who... More

Seven of us visited The Waterfront On Wednesday Evening 6 August. I was early so I popped into the restaurant to inquire about parking and the young lady was very helpful and pleasant. The surrounding area is lovely and great to sit outside having a drink. We all ordered main courses and were not disappointed. Hot plates well done for... More

The location of this restaurant is lovely. It would be great on a summers day. The restaurant itself was very up together and had a good vibe. Staff were all very young and we felt they were a bit more interested in each other and their social life than customers. Food was very average. A tad on the expensive side... More

Lovely setting on a lovely sunny summers evening ... but was rather disappointed in the definitely average food at above-average prices. Staff seemed disinterested and somewhat unprofessional. I doubt that we will eat there again.
