Lunch time, all we wanted was a sandwich but NO, not available. Being the only restaurant in this area, they only catered for up market dining at lunch time. As we were leaving I heard a staff member saying to the owner(?) 'I told you we should offer sandwiches' Say no more.

We had one of the best Sunday lunches we have ever had. The food was superb and the staff most attentive and friendly. The setting is ideal. We will dine here again.

Had a meal here for 9, including 3 children, at the start of our canal boat holiday. Excellent menu with a wide range of choice. We shared platters to start, then I had the sardines which I would highly recommend. Great choice of wine and very fair prices.

Visited The Waterfront on a busy Sunday in April. We had already booked and were told they would be busy and asked it being seated upstairs would be ok...which it was. When we arrived the smells coming from the carvery and kitchen were very appetizing. We were shown to our table upstairs which was very comfortable and had a great... More

I'd seen that a couple of friends had visited so took the opportunity of a sunny afternoon to give this a try. Arrived around 6pm and were lucky to get a table in the sun, outside, overlooking the canal basin. A G&T turned into a lovely seafood supper sharing a couple of platters. All the food was delicious and the... More

The food is warm to say the best for it. Left to stand for ages, too much out at onetime, staff stir to stop food skinning over. Quality of meat, mainly the beef is chewy. Not to be visited again. I believe, although not confirmed they own the restaurant at Foxton Locks, totally different experience, hot food, better service, a... More

Visited here with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday as it is local to me and new to them. There were a number of areas for improvement- two of the soups when served were cold and sent back, the other starters were accepted but none were really hot. After we had eaten the starters and they were cleared... More

Located alongside the Union Wharf canal-side. Attended a big family feast and the food was delicious. Sumptuous sliced meats including roasted beef, ham and a pastry crusted mix of turkey, pork and ham. Serve yourself vegetable sides, mashed potatoes, turnips and giant Yorkshire pudding! Very reasonable price, too!
