First time here Sunday 17th, called in around 2pm with no reservation thinking we'd get turned away but manager was really polite and found us a table straight away. It was extremely busy and the atmosphere was great! 3 meat choices available, and some lovely pigs in blankets, great sized yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. For £10.50 I had... More

Food wasn't great and the service was almost non existent. I has belly pork on the waiters recommendation, it was the worst belly pork dish that I have ever had.Poorly cooked, mainly greasy fat and served with some vegetables that had had every last drop of flavour cooked out of them.

8 of our family members had a re-union Sunday meal here. Despite being a Sunday there was a full menu, not just the carvery which did seem very extensive. Varied choices of starters, main courses and desserts were of exceptional quality and size. In particular the Chicken Ballotine and 3 burgers we had were wonderful. Chips ( in my experience,...

I visited the Waterfront for Sunday carvery on 10 July. After selecting beef, the chef carved one small but thick slice of beef (which was at the end of a joint and had possibly been on the hot plate for some time) and that was it. The meat was dry and impossible to cut as it was not carved correctly.... More

Have eaten here before and loved it, but totally disappointed this evening. Portions have shrunk and prices are too high for what is actually provided. Fish portion was tiny and full of bones, staff all very young and lacking in experience to cope with individual needs of customers. Was given a free dessert by way of apology, but it was... More

Went on Saturday evening after making a reservation. The restaurant was full inside, outside tables were empty. The food was good but expensive compared to other restaurants in Harborough. One of the woman customers was a bit worse for wear and started swearing and threatening another customer , she was quickly asked to leave. The young staff were really good... More

We happened to end up in Market Harborough on a Sunday drive and looked on here for where we could have a late Sunday lunch. So glad we found this place. The Salmon dish I had melted in my mouth and my better half had the Carvery which she really enjoyed. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, great wine and gorgeous food. Highly... More

Hidden away off the road at the Union Wharf, you wouldn't realise this little gem was there if just driving by. Lovely location overlooking the water and the canal boats. Reasonable menu with adequate choice at £11 pp for two courses. We had the beer battered Cod and Chips which was served imaginatively and the chunky chips were really good.... More
