Lovely venue but set Menu was a real 'rip off'! Supplements for virtually everything when set menu was £30 per person anyway. Shame, as food was delicious.

Went there with son & wife for Sunday lunch. We were first ones in there but made the mistake of ordering a starter. After waiting 30 minutes we asked what had happened to it, told the communication between the bar and kitchen had broken down and the order had not been passed on. Arrived 15 minutes later - not worth... More

Cards on the table; I've not actually had a proper meal here. However I was recently at a networking event here and we had a nice two course lunch. We had some soup to start, which I "think" was squash. It might not have been. It was nice enough though. We then had scampi and chips. The scampi was good... More

Nice enough place, we have been for a couple of evening meals and Sunday lunches as we are boating in the area. They have a music night upstairs occasionally but not apparently advertised, our experience is that it is better than it's sister restaurant at Foxton.

Second class pub grade food - what more can be said - disappointing!!! Used to be reasonable but definitely gone downhill.

We called in on a midweek January evening and although there was only one other table in operation there was a pleasant atmosphere and the place was warm and welcoming. We ate there 2 evenings and enjoyed well prepared tasty dishes served in a friendly but not pushy manner.

I'd visited the Waterfront once before, years ago. On this occasion my wife and I were meeting with some friends for lunch. The pub is situated at the northern edge of Market Harborough on the canalside. All of us in the party opted for the lunchtime deal of two courses for £11.50. My starter was a very pleasant duck pate... More

I came to the Waterfront for a pre-Christmas party with friends and family, taking the upstairs part of the restaurant. Entrance was right next to the bar, which makes for a quick easy order as you walk through. There is ample choice of gins, with around 50 different kinds being displayed and offered, and being somewhat a fan of gins,... More
