This is the first time we have ever visited this establishment and may I say how impressed we were. The food was of a very high standard and the atmosphere was welcoming, calming and friendly.
We shall be returning as we had an excellent time and many of the rival companies have a lot to learn from this establishment.

We only live up the road from The Wateringbury and have visited quite a few times. As a couple we fancied a last minute meal out.

I ordered the Rump steak, medium rare, which was cooked to perfection. The accompanying chips and onion rings were great and all food was served piping hot which, to me, is extremely important. My partner had the honeyed belly pork, which he described as lovely. Really tasty. And the puddings! WOW... the baked lemon cheesecake is recommended, a fresh lemon curdy kind of taste and a generous portion. The chocolate cherry torte is delicious and a must for chocoholics. The service is fast and friendly, there are lovely staff that work there.

Great local place to go. Recommended!

Had lunch at the Wateringbury yesterday, after a long journey; it was lovely. The food really is good here these days, good quality menu, well cooked, fresh and all served with a smile. Chose my main from the lunch menu, but even though cheaper, the portion was good. Pudding had to be golden syrup sponge with treacle toffee ice cream, honey drizzled walnuts, whipped cream and strawberries. Oh boy, that is beautiful!!!

I was well surprised when I entered . There is a reception and you will be seated.
The lay out is like a informal restaurant/countrystyle.
The food and service was very good and it is children friendly.
It will cost you ca £30 per head with a three course and a half bottle of wine.
You will be challenged to find anything better for miles around.

First time visit today (Sunday 9th) as heard and read good things so decided to give it a try

Food is excellent and quite a large menu for a sunday so plenty of other options if you don't fancy a traditional roast, the staff are very welcoming, friendly and make you Feel comfortable. Only slight downfall they weren't quick at taking plates or taking payment, but having said that it was quite busy and it's not a critique as such, more an advisory to expect to wait at times between courses and paying. Picky i know!

All in all will definitely be returning and looking forward to trying many other dishes
