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!
Afternoon tea very much recommended. Lovely food and drink in great surroundings with a river view. Staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Everything perfect - thank you!
Great night. Staff friendly and very helpful. Food and service great. Nothing was to much trouble.Will be recommending to friends and family as a party venue or just for a drink or meal. A big thankyou to all the staff for making it such a wonderful evening
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.
Tasty food with great service
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!
We went for the greek mezze however it was unavailable. Ordered breads and olives instead.. no olives. Staff were very attentive, cocktails lovely as always. Worth a visit.
We came for a meal and i think the menu had just be relaunched. There was a spicy bean burger on there which myself an my mum ordered and although it tasted good, there was no spice in there and it was a big big for a bean burger. The drinks were nice as always and the staff are more than happy to accommodate and assist when required.
Great location and super friendly staff!
I thought the food was very poor
Lovely main course although some of the meals were not very hot. Desserts were definitely not value for money! As it was a set menu we all paid the same amount, but when the desserts came out my husband, who had ordered the cheesecake, got a piece of cheesecake the size of a Ritz cheese cracker, or about the size of a £2 coin, and 1cm in height! Other people in our party had treacle sponge with ice cream which was about 6 x 4 inches! Other people had a salted caramel chocolate sundae, which to me a sundae is in a tall glass, this came in a glass about 3 inches tall! All of the desserts were £7.95 So how can they charge the same for a dessert the size of a £2 coin and one which is a normal dessert size? Very disappointed with this as it was a mother's day meal too! Spoke to the manager and the bill was adjusted!
The food was below par. Chicken was dry, sauces were missing from 2 of the meals. The desserts were pityfull in size compared to the normal menu and the food has been getting worse over the last few months. Considering this was a mother’s day special the prices didn’t reflect the standard of the food and the whole family left hugely disappointed and feeling ripped off. We definitely will not be returning for a long time.
Our friend lives in Daventry and we live in Sutton on Sea so this was a half way meeting place. We were that impressed with the food and the service we have decided to make it our meeting place every couple of months. The ambience is perfect as is the location.
Staff are friendly and accommodating. Great food , we will be back. They gave us a free glass of bubbly for our anniversary, which is kind and greatly appreciated
Great food with friendly staff. Loved the fire! Shame it was quiet, but it was a Tuesday evening!
Great food and desserts.
Had a very good evening at the Water's Edge. Atmosphere was very good. Staff friendly and quick service. Food was absolutely delicious. Thank you to everyone for a great evening
Good service, lovely location. My veggie roast was a bit on the small size if I'm honest. Paid the same as a meat eater and had the same food except the meat ??
Pie undercooked meat chewy, potato cold Bill took forever to arrived after asking quite a few times. Small discount given due to inadequate food. Won’t be returning. Disappointed
Went on the 15th feb , 4 of us went , food was lovely and service was great , atmosphere nice
Very nice rooms, lovely river view but the weather was poor. The food was good but not outstanding, the service was friendly and attentive. None of us had been to the restaurant before - it was chosen for location as we were all travelling from different parts of the country. Would visit again in the same circumstances
Enjoyable evening with friends
Fantastic food, great service, lovely fire
