I would stop it right there. From the moment the valet parks your car for you, to your entry in the lobby to the walk to your table, you are surrounded by a sense of peace, calm and controlled efficiency. The food will take you places you did not know existed, the delicate intensity of the flavors is mind boggling.... More

This was quite simply the best experience I have had in a restaurant. Impeccable service in an old school way. The maitre de was first class with the perfect balance of friendliness and respect for your personal space. The location on the river takes some beating and in the warmer weather the back of the restaurant is opened up onto... More

We booked one of the experience as a birthday treat; my husband and I celebrate our birthdays within two weeks of each other. From the moment we arrived and were shown to our room the service was second to none. During our dinner the staff were very attentive and we can't praise them high enough, all this before even mentioning... More

Double birthday celebration, for my brothers 60th and nieces 21st - just superb! The attention to detail - from drinks and canapés on the veranda looking over the Thames to each course. Service is immaculate. Food is just gorgeous. Fantastic - can't wait for another celebration!

Every visit to The Waterside Inn has been an absolute treat - from the moment we arrive and our car taken from us (and always returned!) to our departure (some hours later) On this visit we had the celebratory lunch menu, which included two glasses of wine and represented amazing value for money. Every dish was a delight - no... More

Staff, service, location, ambiance, food, drink - all just faultless. Three Michelin stars suddenly doesn't seem enough recognition. Went for lunch on a Friday and had the tasting menu "Le Menu Exceptionnel" which absolutely lived up to its name. Seven courses of utter delight. Whilst the food was undoubtably amazing it was the front of house staff who really made... More

This is a gorgeous restaurant in a gorgeous setting along the banks of the Thames, some 40 minutes outside central London. The food is perfect - Michelin 3 Stars - and so is the service. You may need a second mortgage to foot the bill, but this isn't just about sensational food, it's about gastronomic and dining memories. It is,... More

The Waterside doesn't disappoint. From the setting, to the wonderfully attentive staff, all the way to the marvellous food, it's a joyous experience. We had one of The Signature Experiences which included Le Menu Exceptionnel and an overnight stay in one of their lovely rooms. We had a room with a terrace, affording great views of The Thames. It helped... More
