About The Waterfront

The Waterfront pub opened in 2007. With the inspired use of reclaimed timber and brick, stone flags and period lighting, this privately-owned free house replicates the style of a Victorian canal-side warehouse.
The vaulted bar serves an extensive range of real ales, premium lagers, fine wines, cocktails and malt whiskies. Sensibly priced pub food, freshly cooked to order, is served in the restaurant, bar and lounge, and on the terrace overlooking the idyllic 300-berth Marina. The 50-seat contemporary conservatory, known as the Quarterdeck, is popular with diners and for private parties.

On the first floor, the Crow’s Nest function room is available to hire for weddings, celebrations or for business use. This spacious and elevated room boasts a dance floor and a well-stocked bar, and the open balcony offers splendid views across the marina.

*Please Note*

NO children under five years-of-age are allowed inside the Waterfront premises.

Children over five years-of-age are welcome until 7 p.m.

Children over fourteen may dine with an adult after 7 p.m.

My dessert never arrived Bill was served in a dirty tumbler smelling of Brandy or Whisky. There was only one girl taking orders so to be fair to her that's probably why dessert didn't arrive. I would think it would be nice to go in the summer when u can overlook the marina

We had a very nice family meal, booking was easy on line. There was information regarding allergies and a good choice of vegetarian food.

Had a lovely time. Waited a bit longer than usual for food (about an hour) as no-one came to take our order but the food was very good and hot and staff very pleasant. We were seated at a lovely table too.

I can't fault the food but our service was terrible. - We were seated quite abruptly and had to ask for drinks to be taken and menus to be brought over 20 minutes after we had been seated - We asked for dessert menus, 45 minutes later, we then asked for the bill as no menu had been presented even after asking 6 times

Excellent meal on New Years Eve, and fantastic service by the waitress who served us. We live local and eat at the Waterfront frequently and have never been disappointed with the food or service.

All good, had a great lunch and afternoon, this was a very special meet up with family after 50+ years and although the booking said table had to be vacated by 3pm the staff left us to enjoy our meal, drinks and time together, without neglecting us in any way.

The temperature in the restaurant was extremely hot which was slightly uncomfortable we were given the option of having our pudding in the bar where it was cooler. The staff are always so pleasant and helpful and food is delicious

Very disappointing. Were dining with friends before going to see a film at Red Carpet Cinema but despite only ordering sides (x5), we ran out of time because the food took so long to come! The cheesy garlic bread was awful. Very greasy and tasted of synthetic garlic. Taste lingered for 2 days, was awful. Won’t rush back :-(

The service was great, there was fun with the waiting team, the food was served hot, there was great organisation by Rachel throughout which enhanced the outcome of Gary’s 50th bday surprise. Highly recommended and recognised. Thank you, thank you thankyou.

It wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be but twice we had to re ask for drinks which had not arrived. Other than that it was a very good night
