The most wonderful food and superb, friendly, discrete but helpful service. Total attention to detail throughout. We stayed overnight in one of the standard rooms; again, everything was just superb. The Waterside Inn well deserves its three Michelin stars.

Went for lunch to celebrate our anniversary and were lucky enough to catch their special menu gastronomique for the month of March. What a treat and pleasure. Everything was absolutely superb and service second to none. The staff were helpful and friendly - not at all stuffy. Thank you for making it a truly memorable experience.

My husband and I went for dinner at the Waterside for a special birthday celebration. Unfortunately the service, as mentioned in other reviews was over the top and quite intrusive. Our initial welcome could also have been better, as we were a few minutes early and left in a side room without magazines. Whilst a drink was offered there was... More

i was the lucky recipient of a birthday treat to have lunch at Waterside Inn. I had been here before many yonks ago, and again the experience did not disappoint. Our table was reserved for 12noon - we got there a little before and were warmly welcomed to wait the few moments until the restaurant "officially" opened. The service was... More

We have been coming here intermittently for 25 years and it never disappoints. The HInds Head can learn a thing or two about service from this very special eatery.

My husband took me to the Waterside for valentines lunch; a treat as we normally try to miss the stereotype valentines dining experience. We have eaten at TWS a number of times and it really is a dining experience everyone should add to their bucket list. The service is without doubt the best we have or will ever experience, second...

To the Waterside again, where every detail seems exemplary. To examine one that indicates the culture of the Waterside, one guest at our table of five on a busy day asked if wheat-free bread were available. it was, and appeared rapidly. An hour or so later, when we had coffee with delectable petits fours, the same waiter slipped a selection... More
