Parking limited & disabled access not good for upstairs function room. Drinks are reasonably priced. Shame about all the stairs.

We hired one of there rooms for our wedding meal and reception. The food was low cost and great quality and the room to hire for the day was not too expensive staff were friendly and always on hand to help only downside was the dj they use for events was over an hour late

Nice place to get a pre-match drink. Doormen were friendly and polite, barstaff helpful and good at their jobs. Hot sandwiches at a very reasonable price, sky sports and a good choice of beers. And only a minute from the station. Happy to recommend The Waterfall to all

What could have been a good experience was a crap one, if you advertise an American Pool lounge at least ensure that the tables are level. Is it beyond the wit of man to give someone a spirit level and adjust them. The table surfaces are shiny and don't look like they've been re-covered in years, the room is freezing... More

It was OK as a place to meet with work colleagues but certainly not worth the price we paid individually. Some of the staff were very friendly and others quite cold. Room was cold to start off with. Could not hear DJ and he played older music - don't get me wrong I did not dislike it but seemed geared... More
