“Nothing to write home about.”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Food was not fresh looking at all and tasted as the gravy had come out of a bag-not homemade tasting. I had been a few years ago and don't recall this being the case, so I was disappointed. Service was good to start but when time to bring the bill came, they dropped the ball. When you have 2 little ones ready to leave, there is nothing worse than waiting for the bill!

“Over rated, only nice thing is the outside seating area!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We've heard good reviews about the Waterwitch over the years, but we had never been there before, until last night, when we met some friends for dinner... and we won't be rushing back! First impressions of the outside seating area are were impressive, but the standard of food the and service were very poor. There were very few diners in the restaurant, and plenty of staff (who seemed to be congregated around the bar area having a laugh and a chat for most of the evening!). However those few diners were all (including us) having to constantly get up from the table to try and find a member of staff to assist with drink/food orders. The quality of the food was poor and over priced for what you get (I guess if you only want a burger you should be ok, as that's hard to get wrong!), but forget ordering anything else! Such a shame, this place could be so much better if only a little more effort from the staff and a better chef!

“Nice setting, but give the food a miss!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Went for a night out with the girls. Service slow and not very friendly. Table arrangement was cramped and uncomfortable for a large party, with tables pushed together at different heights. Then the food finally arrived which was poor to say the least!! We won't be back!!

“Nice Setting”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We were recommended this resturant by friends who had been previously, I was looking for something with a nice setting for my husbands 50th birthday. We went mid week and prebooked beforehand to ensure a table. The setting is indeed fabulous and we were greeted and seated straight away with a drinks order taken and delivered in no time at all, after ordering it all seemed to go down hill service wise, when our food did arrive it was well presented and tasted fab, I ordered the same drinks again and the wine that came was a totally different one to the first glass, when I queried I was told well thats the Pinot Grigio even when I showed her my glass and it clearly wasn't the same wine she didn't offer to change it. Our main courses were again lovely but then we seemed to be forgotten about no one cleared our table and as we waited chose our desserts and we waited, finally after 20 mins the table was cleared and we didn't see a waitress again. We arrived at 7.20pm and at 22.05 asked for the bill as we were past having dessert by this time. Overall the food and setting is fabulous the service let them down such a shame.
