Simply Stunning

What can I say. Beautiful venue and surroundings, service that is top of its class, excellent food and a day not to be forgotten. You will not find out of the norm dishes here, just French cooking executed to perfection. The chef came out to say hello, signed our menus and took photos with us. I... read more

We stayed here on 30th July to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our expectations were high from all of the positive reviews we have read.........and they were definitely exceeded. We booked on the 'Signature experience deluxe', which included an overnight stay in the 'Heron' deluxe superior room, the 'menu exceptionnel' with wines to match each course, breakfast in the morning, a...

Back in blighty for a quick break and had to visit some old favourites - the waterside never disappoints. Our river side suite was beautiful, the food was wonderful and the service was second to none. We will be back for sure.

This was our 2nd visit to the Waterside Inn, having first visited approximately 2 years before. Once again, the food and service were exceptional. I was offered a suitable alternative to one of the courses in the taster menu as there was something I didn't like. This pleased me as I didn't want to miss out! In my opinion the... More

Have dined at the Waterside regularly (though not frequently) over 30 years - the standard has been maintained and even surpassed. Not easy. Great reception from the time you call to book, drive up, enter the restauant etc. Faultless attentive service table, very attentive sommelier (who advises sensibly-priced wine), Exquisite tastes in all the dishes (in this case a gazpacho...

Food was fantastic, the staff are amazing, very attentive without being fussy. The wine waiter was very knowledgeable. Everywhere are lovely little touches like a tiny bowl of fat cherries and a peach in your room, a little bag of chocolates left on the bed when we went down for dinner, a footstool pulled up for my handbag at the...

A return visit to one of England's best restaurants. Other "in" restaurants rise and fall but the Waterside runs like a well oiled machine. Everything demonstrates what a well trained team can achieve for diners. Arriving by car you will normally be greeted by a staff member who parks your car for you , best to have anything to take...

Let me start by saying the food and service were top notch. And none of us (party of 6) expected the lobster, steak, champagne etc to be cheap. But 3 courses plus drinks worked out at over £270 per head. What I am questioning is whether the undoubted quality is worth such a premium price? I am not convinced but... More

A birthday treat for my wife and wow, what a treat. From entry to departure everything was, yet again, perfect. We had the tasetr menu preceded by a trio of wonderful Canapes and a fabulous "Amuse Bouche". The only difficult bit was deciding between the Duck and the Lamb but even this was made easy as I had the lamb... More

We visited midweek for a birthday lunch. The service was exemplary and the food superb as you would expect. Unlike a lot of fine dining restaurants the portions were generous and we left more than replete! Valet parking even when you don't arrive in something special is a nice touch. The value for money in this level of establishment is... More
