Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in before watching LV 50 over Final at Trent Bridge. Staff were really helpful in organising a lunch menu for us despite the fact they were still serving breakfast to lots of hungry cricket fans. It was 12.15 and I have never really fancied a glass of Merlot with a full English. Tapas style starter - marinated chicken,Panko squid, and garlic/chilli prawns with some griddled sourdough bread for mopping up the juices - all delicious. Mains of Fish & Chips and beef brisket were tasty and well presented. Particularly impressed by willingness to take away the flatbread from the Brisket dish and replace with an imaginative and refreshing salad. Good value for money coupled with the smiling, helpful staff meant we will be back next time we come over for the cricket.

I went to the Waterside Bar on Monday 17th January for lunch with a friend. We both thought the food was really tasty, we both had a flatbread with fish and it was delicious. There was also a 50% reduction for January and we only paid £7.95 for both mains. The staff were really good and friendly. We both left having consumed a delicious lunch and a bottle of Prosecco and would happily go there again and again!

I visited this stylish restaurant with views across the river with friends for a lunchtime get together. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. Staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious and beautifully presented and there is a wide range of ales and cocktails to suit all tastes. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back especially in the summer when we will be able to sit out on the terrace overlooking the river

Went here for my anniversary, took 10 mins just to get a menu, another 20 mins to place order for drinks and food. Half the menu was unavailable. The food that was available was limited. Also the food was bland and very salty. Cocktail range is very limited and has a bad after taste. Bar tender drinks your drink to check if your being honest. Customer service is horrendous and very slow. Baring in mind we went on Tuesday afternoon so it was not busy at all. They calculated the bill wrong and they tried to overcharge me. Please avoid, go to the restaurant across the road.

Arrived at around 4:15pm Wednesday afternoon and waited at the door, I could only count 3 tables in the whole vicinity of the building, we were ignored by the woman who clearly noticed us at the door, only for the Chef behind the line to point out to her that we’d been waiting. She finally came to greet us and we exclaimed we wanted to sit outside for drinks, she gave us a menu and told us to find a table “away from the big party” (sorry if we our presence was less valuable then a big party). We sat outside, with no explanation as to whether we needed to order at the bar, no covid explanations we just found a table and waited. We waited until my partner googled, that there was an app to use. So we went to order on the app where it priced a bottle of cider was £5.30, this would be justified had the customer service been up to the price point. Why would we bother paying for overpriced drinks when the customer service does not justify that. So we left without even being acknowledged, to a Wetherspoons about 100m down the road where we were welcomed wonderfully. Not good enough. Will not be returning.

Really poor customer service. Our table which was booked around 6 weeks in advance was given away on the night. We had called the restaurant 5 times in the day to let them know we were running 15 mins late. No answer. The manger stated that they had been too busy to answer or return the call. We were very unhappy that they had not considered calling us or answering the phone so we could confirm to them that we were on our way. Also no email to confirm booking sent. Then the manager said they he had called us to ask if we were coming, however I received no call. Overall there needs to be better customer service and customer communication regarding bookings. We will be very reluctant to visit again given the clear lack of willingness to accommodate customers, especially when they have booked several weeks in advance.

Visited this establishment today, wish I hadn’t bothered. On arrival we were informed that only half of the menu was available due to chef shortages. One of our party enquired about the 50% off offer we were informed this was no longer available despite it still being advertised. We enquired about lunch time special, again we were informed this was no longer available despite being advertised in the menu We attempted to order ciabatta only to be informed they had none and only had plain bread! I ordered chicken satay , described as being served with satay dipping sauce. I asked for additional sauce. The rest of the group ordered a mixture of burgers, sandwiches and nachos. An hour later the food had still not arrived, on enquiring were informed the food was on its way. Another 15 mins later the chicken satay arrived minus sauce. When asked for the additional sauce another 5 minutes wait. When we enquired how long the rest of the order would be we were informed another 15 minutes as they hadn’t put through the order as one they had put it as starters and mains, despite us all ordering at same time The chicken satay was not as described at all, the chicken was not grilled, more boiled which made it tasteless lThe satay sauce was not peanut based and was totally bland as a result the food was left On paying the bill I queried if it actually was satay and was informed that it wasn’t, as the supplier hadn’t sent it. Had this been explained in the beginning I would have chosen another dish. The remainder of the party food arrived a further fifteen minutes after the first ones Really poor quality food and unbelievable waiting times despite there being very few customers sorry will not be returning

Hi Alison, Let me begin by apologising. I understand this experience was not acceptable and I can assure you it is not a regular occurrence. As of late, we are experiencing some staff shortages in the kitchen, as is most of the hospitality sector. However, we have also just moved on to a new menu recently and our chefs are still getting use to the ins and outs of it, resulting in unexpected waiting times, which again I can only apologise for and cannot stress enough that this is not a re-occurring problem and is something I am hoping will not happen again. With the 50% off food offer, unfortunately this deal only ran throughout October as stated on said advertisement. However, I would like to propose this; I would like to ask of yourself and your friends for a second chance in return for 50% off your bill upon your next visit, drinks and food, as a sign of appreciation for your time, patience and also your feedback that helps us grow as a business. We hope to see you again soon, Brad Caston Waterside Bar

It definitely feels like this place has lost some of its lustre in recent weeks and months, since new owners took over. On my most recent trip, I had breakfast - unfortunately, the bread wasn’t really toasted and no butter was provided to butter it, with some parts of the meal lukewarm. I paid £4 for extra bacon and for the overall price (almost £14), felt the breakfast was just lacking. Service was decent though, staff being friendly as always and the location is excellent.

We went here for lunch, we had the veggie burger and sweet potato fries and the fish and chips with (Goose Fair) mushy peas, chips and katsu curry sauce. Both dishes were really lovely, nice fresh ingredients, the veggie burger was lovely (pea protein, the waitress went and checked when we said how nice it was), the fish well cooked and the batter nice and crispy and the chips were proper chips. The service was very good and the staff were really friendly and it was reasonably priced. The place was clean, there were good social distancing measures in place and plenty of hand sanitiser. Will definitely be going be gojng back.

Took my boyfriend for our first date. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman when we arrived, were quickly shown to a lovely table outside. Food and drinks were easy to order and delicious, and delivery service was very prompt. Customer service from all staff was excellent, ambience was perfect. Had an amazing evening, would definitely recommend.

Visited the waterside bar and kitchen while visiting family. I was really impressed by the decor and vibe of the place, also felt they implemented the new rules and restrictions very well to make it enjoyable for everyone. Both me and my mum had the kimichi chicken burger which was incredible, that with the two local craft beers I had made for a very enjoyable meal. All of which was reccomend by Cameron who did a stellar job serving us today. 100% would reccomend!

Called in here after walking into Nottingham and back before collecting our car. We were shown to a table but had to download an app to order on which was an awful faff but the quality of the food and drinks made it worth it. Service was quick and friendly. Lovely location for drink and food. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent Bar to drink and eat. The menu is excellent, quality of food way above what you get served from the chained pubs, service is friendly and welcoming. I would advise visiting here before going into West Bridgford and the strip of bars and cafés. Looking forward to returning to try the Sunday menu, and having several of the amazing frozen cocktails 🍸 Well done to all the Team not forgetting the Kitchen. Keep up the customer service and serving the quality of food, you will be very busy come summer for sure 👏👏👏
