The food is locally sourced and high quality and the dishes are freshly cooked to order. With the opportunity to eat and drink ‘alfresco’ in the heated covered courtyard, there really is no better place to dine out in the area.In addition the Waterside also holds comedy night on every third Monday in the month.

After a beautiful bike ride down the canal with my partner, a surprise meal awaited me at the waterside restaurant. The food we had was amazing and the staff were extremely friendly. Even the dessert was spectacular. We sat out overlooking the canal and it felt very special. Would definitely recommend.

Last Sunday was perfect! We ate outside as it was warm and the terrace is beautiful, full of flowers and we watched the longboats go by. The food was lovely and the staff were fab. All this for less than £10 a head (plus wine obviously!). Thank you so much for another great day!

Hi Becks, Thanks for your review. We are so pleased we delivered a perfect Sunday for you, although we can’t take too much credit for the weather. Sunday lunch is great value without compromising on quality. It was great to welcome you back again. See you soon. More

Hi Lyssa, Thanks for being so loyal to the Waterside, we really enjoy your company. As you say the steaks are delicious and the Tuesday nights are becoming very popular as word spreads, especially as it is a terrific deal too. More

Chose this restaurant on the basis of on-line reviews and was more than pleasantly surprised with the range and quality of the menu. Having driven up from London, our family group needed somewhere to un-wind with good food and a relaxed atmosphere and we got that - and more. Great location - and great staff, who laid up a table...
