Had lunch here a few weeks ago. Beautiful location. Service was perfect. Food was very good (not great but very good indeed), but the issue for me was the wine. The white Burgundy was good, really good, but the red ( a Cote du Rhone) was really not good at all. Let the while thing down to be honest.

The good points first. My girlfriend and I had dinner here last night. The restaurant was full, the weather sublime, and the view from the riverside terrace as good as it gets in southern England. The staff are numerous, omnipresent and pretty well-drilled. The menu is easy to navigate and caters for a broad range of tastes. The wine list,... More

we had been to The Waterside some years ago and having had a wonderful 5 star experience returned in July with friends for a special treat and found that it had got even better - the food ( we had lunch and Le Menu Gastronomique ) was quite outstanding and the service perhaps the best we have ever had in...

This was another excellent, beautifully-presented, three-course set lunch, served by charming staff, at the Waterside Inn in its wonderful setting beside the River Thames. It was the forty-fifth time we have eaten at the Waterside Inn since 1991 - that alone should speak for itself.

The Waterside experience was quite remarkable. The location is, of course, lovely, the set lunch is perfectly nice. Not absolutely exceptional, but not exceptionally highly priced either, and some individual dishes were lovely. The terrace and dining room are gorgeous, though to be fair we were lucky to get a table near the main windows, some of the tables at... More

I was really surprised to read mixed reviews of this outstanding restaurant. This was our second visit in the last 4 years and we were not disappointed. The service is outstanding but relaxed, and the food delightful. I note one reviewer did not think a wine flight was available for the tasting menu. I am not sure how they missed... More

It's all been said before....classical French cooking done by the masters of it.... The "Roux" family. Alain Roux wanders around talking to guests making them welcome. From the money we parked the car the staff were all superb...smiling with their eyes and making you welcome.We ate the excellent tasting menu which was superb for lunch after taking drinks overlooking the...

There is truly no justification for these ridiculous prices, $50 for a Crème brûlée, seriously! If you are trying to impress your date or your friends with your wanton disregard for money then this is the place for you. Today I could not even remember what I had, so no, the food is not memorable. Expect to pay $300 per... More

I was treated to lunch in the stunning setting of the Waterside Inn in Bray. We were a party of 5 seated overlooking the river. The atmosphere was relaxed with the light hum of varying conversations filling the room. Waiting staff we the perfect balance of attentive yet not over bearing providing advice where required & not pushing the Bottled... More
