As seasoned MS diners, Waterside had been on our list for a while and we finally managed to get ourselves booked in for lunch. I asked my wife on our 120 mile drive home, whether she felt anything could be improved or changed at the Waterside to make the dining experience any better? She paused for a while and said... More

Dined her to celebrate my recent 'big' birthday and couldn't have asked for more. Staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was delicious - without exception. I recommend the steaks to anyone. Sommelier recommended a reasonable Sancerre - which was also lovely. Do NOT miss the 6 mini desert option! Having sampled 3 star Michelin standards I want... More

Undoubtedly the best dining experience I have ever had! Every course was a visual delight and perfectly balanced on the tongue. The wine pairings were faultless as was the warm and professional service. A meal here is a worthy investment! I would love to be one of their lucky regulars one day!

This is my second visit to the Waterside inn after previously attending a wedding there. I lunched with friends, a real treat for us and I can't fault the setting, food or service. As we were all driving we asked to see the soft drink menu but were told there wasn't one but the waiter knew what they had so... More

We had a fantastic lunch as part of my husband's 60th Birthday celebrations. As soon as we walked in, the staff treated us like old friends. We had a glass of fizz in the lounge which was so nice and cosy then we were shown into the main restaurant. The staff couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. I had... More
