After a visit to Foxton locks googled a place to eat, never been here before, what a find ! Turned up on the off chance on a Saturday evening and although it was busy we were made very welcome. We sat outside enjoying the water side terrace, and so what if the service was a bit slow, the food was... More

We visited today, Wednesday August 24th. I had been to Waterfront sometime ago but my husband hadn't. We had been to The Inn at Foxton Locks who were promoting their sister restaurant The Waterfront. As we were shopping in Mkt Harborough, I suggested we went for some lunch. It was hot and sunny so most tables outside were taken, however... More

Having left Foxton Locks we cruised to Union wharf for 24 hours. We were very lucky to get a mooring just by the Waterfront Restaurant. Having eaten at the Foxton Locks Inn the night before we felt it should be of similar standard BUT it was even better.

We were virtually ignored by the main waiter and he had to be asked by another member of staff to talk to us.. And how awful of us that we hadn't booked but we were happy to sit outside. We had tried calling a couple of times but no one had answered the phone.. The food on Sunday is a... More

We must have caught them at a bad time........ Many reviews have really rated this place and it was many years since we were last here so we thought we'd pop in without a reservation. We were in luck as they weren't very busy. We were allocated a table but we asked if we could return to it once we'd... More

We visited on a Sunday for the carvery. The food was good, a selection of three different meats and a variety of vegetables. The food could have done with being hotter as it was only just warm. The atmosphere was very good but our visit was let done by slow service. In the end had to go and ask to... More

What was supposed to be a special celebratory meal turned into a disaster because the Chef either couldn't or wouldn't cater for me as I suffer from a nut allergy! Whilst I appreciate and am grateful that they take allergies seriously - this was taking things just too far. I ordered a fish platter to share as a starter and... More

Came here for lunch as we were staying on a canal boat. The staff were lovely, very polite and made sure we had everything we needed. Also came to let us know food would be a little longer (food took a little while but not too long). Food was REALLY good, all came out looking very fresh and piping hot.... More

My mother and I visited the Gin and Fizz bar at the Waterfront a few nights ago and I absolutely loved it. I had a gongoozler which is one of the best cocktails I've had in leicester, while my mum had a prosecco. The decor of the bar has a cosy and warm feeling, giving it a lovely atmosphere. The...

we went for sunday lunch today, the carvery was very excellent. Only thing let it down was the very slow service. We waited for 30 minutes for our plates to be collected. The restaurant was busy but there were plenty of staff who just seemed to be walking around or gathering behind the bar. Such as a shame as food... More
