Visited here on a Saturday night & very impressed with food quality. Enquirer about how & what was in the starter I ordered & received a visit off the chef expalaining fully how to make it. Very thoughtful & a lovely touch. Main course was even better than the starters. 100% satisfied.

The food in here was beautiful- and good value. The scallops in particular were amazing and the sharer of desserts is a must! The service was pleasant- but no one was overly rushed to get to you. A small criticism in an otherwise faultless experience.

Lunch here is delicious and it was so good I will make sure I return soon either for another lunch or possibly an evening meal. The quality is top class and service was really good.

We popped in for Sunday lunch and were pleased to hear that they were able to accommodate us. Roast chicken and belly pork were delicious, red cabbage and creamy leek full of flavour. Lovely experience, 10/10. This place is consistent and offers great quality meals.

I'm not one for writing reviews as such but felt obliged in this case due to the particular circumstances. 17 of us visited the Waterfront this year for our works Christmas lunch and to say we were disappointed was an understatement.

Went with friends and the place looked lovely. The staff are very accommodating even though they were very very busy. The girl who I think was the under manager was excellent. Now to the food I had blue cheese tart which was part cremated so was only able to eat half of not a very big portion. The turkey dinner... More
