We visited the Waterside on Good Friday evening with a party of 11, (last year it was a party of 16). The pub was busy but we had no problems with taking the food order and everything came out together. The £2 for £12 promotion was available which represents great value and once again the staff were friendly and happy to help

The pub is unlikely to win any awards for its food, but if you’re looking for good value and friendly service, this is the place for you.

I have eaten out many times, and work in the industry, and i have to say my experience at this pub was the worst i have ever had! Rude, ignorant and argumentative staff. The impression they leave with customers is that they really don't care if you enjoy your visit or not. The food quality would have been better from Tesco! No service, no care and no effort....stay away!

Been here several times before , never had any complaints. So thought it would be the ideal venue to book for a large family meal. Upon arriving explained to the bar staff that we had a reservation just for them to reply "your sat over there". Upon getting " over there" we found that the tables wasnt even set up to cater for our party leaving us rearranging all the seating plans. we found the staff and management to be very abrupt.very poor customer service wont be going back .

Have always been a regular with good customer care, you over looked the silly things of using wrong branded glassware . But we visited Friday early evening to have a drink on our way home. The manager and bar man when I said hi just blanked me and looked away. We waited to be served and had to ask to be served as the manager went off for a chat with a member of staff and the bar man disappeared the response. All I got was a grunt and rolling of eyes, It was 'nt even busy was made to feel like us customers were an inconvenience to them. Such a shame will defiantly think twice about going again.

thanks again for a great carvery !! 2 for £12 and did not hike up the price for mothers day either !! Rang up at 3pm as I had a surprise visit from my family wanting a table for 7 on Mothering Sunday...a tall order I thought.. we were promised a table for 4 pm they were very busy but managed to fit us in. We turned up at 3.50 were shown straight to our table and by 4 we were all tucking in to our delicious carvery.... lots of lovely fresh veg delicious tender beef, ham and turkey...and roasties to die for !!! Well done to all the staff they were really helpful and pleasant. All in all a lovely dining experience....don't believe the bad reviews...these people must be really picky and expect the Ritz at a knock down price.
