I needed somewhere rather special to take Mum for lunch for her 80th. birthday. Having seen Michel Roux on the TV, Saturday Morning with James Martin, I decided on the Waterside Inn, Bray and duly made our reservation. The receptionist could not have been more helpful. She even called me back two days before the reservation to confirm our attendance.... More

Diego Masciaga OMRI and his team will take such amazing care of you. The food here is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to eat. The wine list is extensive and has something for every budget. The location/setting is so tranquil that you won't want to leave. Service is faultless, attentive but not intrusive. If you... More

We visited the Waterside Inn for our anniversary and it had the tasting menu. The food was divine, service exceptional and the attention to the detail simply superb. Quite simply a truly special place.

Excellent, top-quality, world class food and service. It's a traditional European kitchen (do not expect adventurous / creative novelties) mastered to perfection. Desserts are a class on its own as well. Tasting menu offers a great experience. Lovely.

What an amazing restaurant, from the time we pulled up at outside without a worry of having to park the car because that was done for us to the car outside ready for when we left. The staff could not do enough to make our visit enjoyable, the food was outstanding and to make our visit that extra special Albert... More

This was a special occasion dinner with accomodation included. Loved every moment. Lovely room with view of the Thames, watching the world go by on the outside 'pier', and a wonderful selection of foods, including a duck dish the like I have not eaten before. Service was impeccible, as one would expect, and not overly intrusive. Loved the lady who... More

The temptation to wax lyrical about everything that is good about The Waterside Inn is overwhelming. The food is beyond wonderful, the service incomparable and its location is a British idyll. If you have any thoughts that this place might be off the Richter scale on the posh front, think again. Whilst its food and service are off the chart,... More

The Roux family know better than anyone else just how to create memories to last a lifetime. We splashed out on hiring their electric launch and supped champagne and canapés as we slipped past the Inn's opulent neighbours then came ashore to enjoy their Menu Exceptionelle. I cannot think of a single moment when we were in the least disappointed.... More
