Great food, fine service, Thames view

This is a wonderful restaurant in a delightful spot on the Thames. It’s very expensive, but it’s the right place if you want to splurge. We had the prix fixe lunch menu on a Thursday in August, which is less expensive. It was very busy when we were there, but the level of attentiveness was not... read more

Wash your car – it will be valet parked on arrival. If you opt to sit outside on the riverside terrace for your lunchtime champagne and amuse bouches your irritating wasp will be dispatched with efficiency and panache. You will then be invited to take a seat for a gastronomic journey to flavour central and back again. This will be... More

This is my second visit and I still cannot find an ounce of fault or slight imperfection. From the moment you walk inn you get treated like royalty, however despite this you are made to feel so comfortable. Staff are so kind and the food was impeccable - it can not be faulted! Staff could not do enough to look... More

9 of us visited today for a celebration lunch. First class service from the moment we arrived. We ate from Le Menu Gastronomique and it was truly outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and a personalised menu provided a lovely finishing touch to special day. Faultless from start to finish.

Great food and lovely atmosphere. The Waterside consistently delivers a great dining experience. On a summers evening I could not ask for a better setting and the food and service make a perfect night out

If you need to be told! It's exactly what you should expect. The hardest thing for the Waterside Inn is living up to expectation. Yet somehow it still does. I don't think there is a better combination of food, staff and location. The menu has changed and just gets better. The staff WOW! If you want to feel looked after,... More

From the moment of our arrival, when the car was parked for us, this was a truly memorable experience. As we walked to our table we were greeted by every member of staff that we passed. We had a lovely table, overlooking the Thames. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel valued by all the staff.... More

Visited here for an evening meal, from arrival and throughout meal service was impecable. Started with drinks and canapes on the terrace then moved to the restaurant where food was superb.

This is the standard by which ALL others should be judged. It is fantastic, out of this world. I now have to reconsider all other restaurants I have reviewed in light of my first of very many trips to the Waterside Inn

We visited the waterside Inn on 11th August 2015 for a Birthday Meal. Food was excellent, although we had to wait approximately 45 minutes due to how busy they were on the Tuesday evening.
