Our trip to the Waterside was a surprise gift from my Husband for my 40th and to be honest I was so flabbergasted when we actually drove down to the car park and parked up I was lost for words (not for the last time on this visit!). The Waterside is quite an unassuming building which really is just an...

What can I say that hasn't been said before?! This place is still the standard of the ultimate fine dining. The service, the food, the decor, the ingredients, the atmosphere...I just cannot compare it to anywhere else in the world! It is just the best gastronomic experience available and I feel so spoilt to have enjoyed it on so many...

This is a truly wonderful gourmet experience. Beyond description as whatever one's expectations are they are blown apart by the sheer excellence. One huge surprise. Diego. The staff in this hotel restaurant , led by this outstanding ,skilful practitioner give you service which sets the high bar at the level which I suspect the competition simply can only aspire to,

Celebrating 44 years of marriage so wanted something special. Food amazing, service, attentive but not overbearing, very relaxing and everything done to perfection. Room was lovely, very comfy bed and nice to just walk upstairs after a brilliant evening. No tea/coffee making facilities in room wasn't a problem as the kitchen was very near but didn't like using it to...

Have been going to this top restaurant for many years. Food is consistently very good/excellent and the service is excellent. Highly recommended for top quality French cuisine and the location by the Thames is exquisite.

I have eaten and stayed at some truely beautiful places, the Waterside is at the top of them all. The attention to detail is with out doubt truely outstanding. My review probably won't be a deciding factor in you visiting this venue, but if it is you will not be disappointed.

Myself and my wife and another couple dined at the waterside Thursday night, the service and food was truly amazing. We had the taster menu and every piece of it was beautiful. Prices reflect the quality of the food and service and I would recommend this Resturant. We live local so got a taxi but our friends stayed overnight and...

The sun is sparkling on the river Thames, the ducks are having a splashing time and the rowers are out for exercise and fun. If you are lucky enough to have one of the best window tables at The Waterside at Bray, this will be your view. Your car will already have been parked for you; the warm and welcoming...

This is our 2nd visit to this wonderful location where we experienced the fabulous lunch menu and as you would expect, the food is exquisite and the service is impeccable. It is one of those rare places where you receive first class service but it doesn't feel pretentious. I love this place and cannot recommend it enough.

As a 50th birthday treat my wife took me to The Waterside Inn at Bray for dinner and to stay over. The review is therefore in two parts. Arriving at The Waterside it looks like many other village inns in the Thames Valley - a two storey white building with small windows - but as soon as you enter that...
