Disappointed fave dessert was out of stock and also pulled pork for main course, but other than that very good.

Disappointing experience. Had nothing for lactose, wheat and potato intolerance. Staff were helpful but our experience was painful dealing with multiple staff whom had poor understanding of the menu. Will not come again.

Staff very helpful even during busy periods. Atmosphere was great, however the table arrangements meant that there was a thoroughfare right past our table which wasn’t very romantic. We were sat by the stairs so it wasn’t ideal. The food was lovely and good portion sizes. And amazing that they have parking available too! Great views, lovely place.

Poor attention to detail and cleanliness. Suggest staff not allowed mobile wh3n on duty might clear tables faster. Maybe serve food on time as well. Would not recommend.

We really enjoyed eating here, the place and food is beautiful, it is a little pricey where the drinks are concerned hence I gave 4 stars, and when it got busier we had to wait for a while after we had eaten to get some more drinks is, also we wasn’t offered the dessert menu. Otherwise it was an amazing night many thanks.

Food was fairly priced and not bad quality, although most of our first choices were not available due to a big party being held downstairs. Things like steak and ribs aren’t things that should be run out of due to popularity, there were no gin glasses for our drinks either. The service was very distant, we didn’t get checked on once our food was delivered, the condiments were not full (no sauce or napkins) and we asked multiple times due to being forgotten about. We were not told about the non service of desserts and once our plates were taken no one came to discuss paying for the meal until we went and asked. Very disappointed as previous time visiting during the day was lovely which is why we booked this meal for visiting family 5 weeks in advance. Would not recommend visiting here on a weekend evening.

Food was very nice, however the music was fairly loud sometimes making it hard to hear each other and have conversations, apart from this everything else was njce.

No call back as promised to confirm reservation - ended up booking online. Food okay, service slow and mediocre. Requested to order dessert - told no due to kitchen closing at 9pm. We should have been advised of this on entry. Free drinks appreciated for saying sorry - nice gesture however will not be back

I booked a meal for mine and my husbands wedding anniversary. When I booked I thought that the top area was sectioned off as a restaurant area but when we sat down there were loads of people just sat drinking and it was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. We had a drink and went else where to eat. I was actually really disappointed as was really looking forward to our meal out together. It's a lovely place but was really let down.

Food was poor. Coleslaw looked like it was shop bought. Burger lacked salad. Food came out with a long wait between first and last dish. Band played out of tune.

I had booked the upstairs private room for a baby shower and all I can say it’s brilliant!! I had had some trouble with a previous venue, not returning calls, not sending over a food menu, so when I contacted Watersedge I wasn’t really expecting a great response. I had an email back from the manager Eloise within the hour, with a full list of menu options. Eloise continuously contacted me to make sure I was happy and ready for the day, I was allowed in to set everything up, out of normal working hours, which was a bonus and on the day I couldn’t thank Eloise and the staff enough!! We were made to feel very welcomed and everyone was on hand to support with anything! The food was absolutely fabulous, over and beyond what I had expected!! I will most certainly look at booking the venue again. Thank you to everyone at Watersedge, the mummy to be loved every minute and was so overwhelmed. Thanks!

As a regular customer, we found the menu to be very different than usual, not much choice compared to previous menus which was disappointing. Also a change in the music that is normally playing, previous visits it has been modern music but on latest visit, this also seems to have changed.

I am afraid we had a very poor experience on Saturday. Despite having reserved a table in advance we ordered - and 45 minutes later sill no starter and they couldn't actually tell me when it would be ready - just that they were very busy. The food may be good but I didn't get to find out!
