Payment system only seems to work when connected to your Wi-fi. This Wi-fi network is unsecured - I paid via card but this seemed unusual for staff to do - although they were very helpful.

Enjoyable evening and great food as always. Lack of atmosphere was only due to the Covid situation. Great service and friendly staff.

Superb as always, baked chorizo could be a little spicier but thats just personal preference. The heaters in the marques are a nice touch and were greatly appreciated on Sunday when it was cold and rainy!

Enjoyed the meeting and drinks and pizza. Staff quite stretched as there were only 3 on shift. They were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely evening. 1.5h for a table is not quite long enough tho. We booked for 7.30pm. By the time everyone arrived and we ordered drinks through the app we only had time to order mains only. Food, drinks and atmosphere great tho!

The outside needs a bit of music. Even if it is just quietly in the background. The atmosphere was lacking. We were placed on a large table with a huge umbrella pole in the middle so couldn't easily see each other. It would be better if that table was split in half.

Really great night out with the kids at the waterfront, sat under the heaters in the pouring rain, stayed warm and dry, was fun and the food was great. Service was quick and we had a great time.

We have visited the Waterfront many times and was extremely disappointed on this visit. It took an age to order what we wanted on the app. The drinks did come quickly however when the food arrived it looked awful. One person had the cheeseburger which certainly wasn't worth the price there wasn't even any salad! A pizzas that came out hardly had any toppings and were dry. There was no staff presence so we couldn't say anything and as you have to pay upfront there wasn't anything we could do about it. The waterfront has inflated their prices since our last visit and in my opinion has gone dramatically down hill. We will not be recommending to any of our friends

Absolutely lovely meal - we were a bit worried about being too cold because we booked a table outside due to being from different households but The Waterfront have a heater for every outdoor table and a canopy over the seats. The atmosphere was absolutely lovely and we all felt very safe. The food was delicious and we had an absolutely wonderful evening ! Thank you!

This is the second time I’ve been here in a months amd I’ve got to say that given the current situation they are doing an amazing job keeping everyone at a safe distance whilst giving a great service and even better food!

we were lucky enough to get a booking for the pod dining experience and the staff were extremely helpful when organising the booking via email and sent immediate confirmation a friendly reminder beforehand as well! the pod was incredibly cute and perfect for a romantic christmas meal. Our waiter, Jack, was so helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and he even checked on us twice during our experience so we never felt excluded from the restaurant. He was brilliant and we could like to thank him for his service. We had a great time and really enjoyed dining here
