Good food and atmosphere in attractive restaurant in scenic location

Been here many times, both for dinner and often for drinks and nibbles with the sun setting over the scenic waterway. The dining room menu is good and varied, as is the food and drinks. Most recently attended a birthday Sunday-lunch carvery. The food, as always, was well-prepared and the... read more

This is a nice place to visit and eat during the week, but Sunday lunch is not the best time to visit.

I was taken to the Waterfront this week for a birthday lunch (5th May 2015) We booked a table for five, which was just as well as the place was packed. We all had different meals and we found that they were cooked to perfection. There was a good choice for a lunch time menu. Lovely views out over the... More

Visited on bank holiday Monday at 1.30pm, birthday lunch out. Busy place but it's in a great setting so was as expected. Wasn't expecting to be told that they'd ran out of burgers due to being busy at 1.30??? Left after having one drink as nothing else on the limited menu we fancied. I will only visit again if I...

This place is a gem, great food , great setting.. It faces direct west so is brilliant to watch the sun setting with a bottle of wine.

The meal was very tasty, my wife wanted the bass but due to the long weekend they had run out, no problem my wife was offered cod cooked however she wanted it. The food was well cooked and... More

This was recommended by the owners at the White House Bressingham, where we were staying, as being somewhere that serves good food at a good price. They were right. Service was quick and the view over the lake beside it is lovely. The only mystery was why it seemed to be policy to only provide low fat mayonnaise???? - I... More

We have been to the Waterfront restaurant a few times before, always a good cooked meal and friendly service, with great position next to the marina. We recommend booking a table next to the windows overlooking the marina if possible.

The food was good and very reasonably price but the service was poor and very slow. We were offered coffee after our starter, we had to ask 3 times for mustard to go with the steak and were then offered the mustard with our dessert. Staff were very slow after serving us to return and extremely slow for the bill.
