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.

Good service but a large party booked in the restaurant created some considerable noise for other diners, as a result it affected the ability for other diners to hear each other! When raised with staff the waiter was not particularly understanding of the affect of the noisy group on others diners.

There was over an hour delay for food which I understand as it was busy however not one member of staff informed us of this whilst we were there.

Despite being a bank holiday and already informed of a food wait (which was no problem) when the food did finally arrive (over and hour and 10 minutes) the order was wrong and 2 of the party had to wait and additional 15 minutes for food. No follow up and very poor service. Disappointing given the fabulous weather and great atmosphere in the marina. Will not be returning as the impression was that nobody really cared whether we were there or not! Thank you Sarah.

Table was ready before the time we booked. Waitress changed items on the menu to suit our tastes with no hassle. Would recommend and certainly go back again

Everything was perfect apart from the end when me and my partner were relaxing in the lounge having a drink after our beautiful meal, we had a tab open because we planned on staying there until close until a member of staff came over demanding the tab be paid! I offered a credit card to the barman before opening my tab as for security but once the waitress demanded that I felt Asif someone thought we were going to run off without paying! After that we left! First night we’ve had a babysitter and left both cars at home so we could have a good drink! That kind of ruined it for us

17 of us had a great time for my 50th birthday. Only negative thing was when the bill came it didn’t come with the deposits taken off. I’d paid £85 up front which wasn’t deducted until I asked. We’d had a lot to drink and I very nearly just paid it. There wasn’t much in a way of an apology either. Other than that we had great food and a lovely time.

My friend and I have been dining weekly at The Waterfront for the past 12 months I have submitted reviews in the past and I have always been full of praise for your services the staff have always been friendly and attentive and you had a good menu but we came on Friday evening the 21st of April and we were unfortunately very disappointed. I had booked and on arrival we were promptly shown to our table we were annoyed that our usual dish of baked or fried salmon was not on any more nevertheless we decided to try something else, 15 minutes later we were still sitting there unattended and ignored no one came to take our order so we stood up and walked out probably never to return, a great pity as we have had some very enjoyable evenings at The Waterfront.

Booked a table of 19 people for my mums 80th Birthday on Easter Sunday. We asked to be seated in the conservatory as my mum particularly liked the outlook onto the marina. We were allowed to bring our own balloons, flowers and birthday cake . We couldn't have asked for better service or meals and the whole afternoon made a very memorable day for my mother. Lovely setting and atmosphere. Thank you to all the staff involved 10/10.
