We've eaten at the Waterside a few times, and the food is consistently excellent although pricy (no surprises there). However the most recent visit revealed a few flaws. We were seated immediately inside the restaurant, next to the entrance and near the serving area. It's very busy and, in addition to busy foot traffic, we frequently had staff standing near... More

Beautiful setting, fantastic food, amazing service (although the botched up one thing when i was there ... but recovered gracefully). This restaurant is worth all three of its michelin stars

Our family gave my husband and I a treat for our Anniversary. We had a lovely lunch and will be back. The service was first class and so friendly. My day was made when Alain himself came to say hello. We said how much we were enjoying our meal and mentioned his lovely team. He was such a nice person.... More

We drove approximately two hours to have lunch at the Waterside Inn, and arrived with just minutes to spare. Luckily the valet parking provided by the restaurant takes the hassle out of parking. We were taken straight to our table which was in the main part of the restaurant (rather than the conservatory) and I have to say our first... More

Service doesn't get better than this. What an amazing experience from start to finish. Of course, the food is just incredible too - the ceviche being a particular standout dish. I recommend you ask for a tour of the kitchen and prepare to be amazed at the level of detail that goes into creating your perfect evening. Pure class!

Got taken there for lunch as a treat. Hadn't been before, but as one of the 3 starred institutions, I'd obviously heard lots about it, so my expectations were high. A warm welcome … then walked through to the dining room (and then outside for a couple of glasses of pre-lunch tipples) … and was actually quite shocked by the... More

A warmth of welcome like you will find no where else. You might think having 3 stars for 30 years would foster a sense of arrogance or ambivalence, not a bit , whether you have saved up for a life time or eat twice a day, I can't imagine they would not treat you the same! Food was of course... More

This place offers an experience you wont forget. The location and the food are amazing, its expensive but worth every penny. Go and enjoy. We had an enjoyable meal and a coffee over looking the Thames on a peaceful July evening. Like I said amazing.

We went there this July for business dinner. Compared with art like food in fat duck , the food there is simple and nice and a lot of them. We did a 7 course tasting menu and What a gastronomical experience ! To experience fat duck once is enough, but I can go to waterside inn again and again. Obviously... More
