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.

Very noisy, waited ages for service, expensive steak but wasn't cooked to correct liking, small variety, just very crowded and very loud, couldn't hear ourselves talk over all the noise from others,

Service staff were extremely attentive. Did not have to wait too long for food. Food was tasty, well cooked and ample, although a little over priced compared to some other restaurants but then again not as expensive as some. Around £12 to £15 for a main course. Hot day and the air con/climate was comfortable inside. Ambiance was very calming and relaxing. Thank you

The restaurant was very busy as it was a Sunday, however we waited for 45 mins for our main course (no one had a starter). The fillet steak (the most expensive option on the menu) was requested to be cooked medium rare however this was well done. My father-in-law didn't want to send it back as we had waited so long for our food. The two creme brulee ordered for desert were not set these were sent back and alternate deserts ordered. Overall we didn't enjoy this visit to the Waterfront as much as previous visits.

I don't understand why you would give us a table for 2 hours and then deliver really slow service. We were a table of 4 and we would of all had dessert but there was no time because the service had been really slow.

Appalling wait for our food - booking asked for table to be vacated by 21:00 (fine as we had a cinema booking) - but we only got our main course at 20:40, which we had to rush!! 😡

Welcoming, courteous, efficient staff. Good food if slightly limited choice. Well cooked and presented. Pleasant ambiance but quite a high noise level when busy. Would recommend.

We had to wait for our pre-booked table, then had to ask for menus after we had been seated. All of our food was very tasteless, my husband had ordered a large fish and chips it arrived with 6 chips which a couple of them where raw. The fish was very wet and bland and pretty much every mouthful was full of bones. Nobody courtesy checked us or we would have complained there and then, in fact it took so long for us to see a member of staff that at that point we were all very disappointed and just asked for the bill and left. This meal was to celebrate our twin daughters birthday and to make up for the disappointment we ended up taking them to McDonalds on the way home for an icecream as we had no desire to wait for dessert. Would not recommend to anyone and will not be returning. Disgusted.

Very poor vegetarian options. No vegetarian choice for Sunday lunch! How difficult could it be to have vegetarian sausages or quorn roast, both cooked from frozen! I had warned on the booking that we had 4 vegetarians. Very easy to knock up a veggie gravy too. Not impressed at all.

Great evening, good food, helpful staff and pleasant atmosphere. The team were also very accommodating as some of our party were unable to make it at the last minute but this didn't seem to phase them at all.

Lovely to have a drink outside by the marina, so was looking forward to dinner. We were fitted at 13.55, started came out prompt, however had to wait around an hour for our main meal. We had chicken supreme and the beef roast dinner, very disappointed, the food wasn't even average. The beef was full of fat, chewy, the potatoes were hard and the yorkshire pudding was dry and tasteless. Extremely disappointed with my visit as I attended a wedding here last year and the food was amazing. The staff weren't very attentive and were very slow, we appreciate the place being busy but overall the food was terrible, the price was too expensive for what we received and the staff were uninterested. wouldn't recommend
