Beautiful location!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here. The location is beautiful (perhaps most appreciated at lunch time) and the service was very good! My husband had increased the number of diners from two to four just days before our reservation and they were accommodating of this. Once at the restaurant we were... read more

The service was extraordinary. Never have I been so impressed. The selection of food and the flavours left nothing to be desired. After the meal we were invited to take coffee in a cosy gazebo overlooking the river. The whole event was managed exquisitely by the staff. In my visits to restaurants around the world, I have never found a... More

Brilliant. Bit old fashioned for me, but brilliant. Room a delight. And the most memorable - The breakfast pastries. Dec 2014

This was our third visit to the Waterside Inn with friends in the last two years and we were completely charmed by the whole dining experience once again. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived until we left, more than 5hrs later! We booked the Menu Exceptionnel and chose the flight of wines to accompany, which was of course... More

Some friends and I booked the River Cottage private dining room and what an experience. Via its own entrance, we sat for drinks in a relaxing lounge. Service, as ever, is attentive yet unfussed. The meal was simply exquisite as you would expect from The Waterside. Stunning John Dorey, melting squid and the multiple mini dessert dish - take me... More

A night out cannot get better than the experience at the Waterside. From the moment you arrive just perfection. The turbot just unique. Looking forward to our next visit.

The location is ideal and the view .. wow ! The food was nice but given the price , I was expecting something excellent ... was just good but nothing exceptional (except from the fish dish !) I know it is a smart restaurant but I felt that the waiters was pouring our glasses much too often , in fact... More

Treated my boyfriend for his birthday meal here, it was the most perfect night. We were greeted outside the restaurant from our taxi and seated for our wonderful experience. We opted for the exceptionnel menu,not sure if it changes throughout the year, but from the beginning to the end our taste buds were amazed. Wine list is big but you... More

I don't know where to start and I wish it had never finished. I booked a table of 8 with my business partner for our colleagues at Christmas. I have booked other nice restaurants before but I have to say that the booking process at the Waterside was the easiest. I called well in advance to ensure that the restaurant... More
