About The Waterside Bar & Kitchen
Situated on the peaceful banks of Walters Lake at The Cotswolds Waterpark, Waterside Kitchen & Bar is the perfect haven to relax with friends and family.
Operated by The Relish Group, an award winning local Hospitality and Catering Business based in Cirencester, The Waterside offers an ever-changing menu using locally sourced ingredients and is reflective of the seasonality and natural surroundings in which it’s located.
Offering both indoor and outdoor dining space, the recent addition of the stunning glass Baubles allow for a truly individual and exquisite experience, serving an exclusive menu cooked by our creative team behind ‘Pit & Plate’; a food concept derived from open fire cooking using natural cooking methods.
Fantastic food with the exception of the roast potatoes which were very dry, but the rest was outstanding with gravy being the star of the show. Makes a change to be served proper gravy and not brown water. Waitresses were lovely however one little moan was that we had to keep getting her attention to order drinks. I can’t wait to come back and try the other menu and will definitely recommend Waterside - although reluctant in case you become to booked up :)
This is our new favourite place to eat. The service is excellent , the food is delicious and the setting is beautiful . We can’t recommend enough and have already rebooked,
Food is simply outstanding
Great to have this addition to the Lakes. Really good food beautifully presented and full of flavour
Fantastic food would highly recommend a visit. Will be back soon.
Delicious food, beautiful setting, friendly staff. Highly recommend.
Service and food was fantastic, looking forward to being able to visit after restrictions have been relaxed, definitely recommend to give it a go
Loved it! Great food, service and atmosphere - we’ll be back...thank you!
What a lovely little hidden gem. Found was amazing, every dish was excellent and fresh and tasty. Service was great, it these difficult times nothing was too much trouble.
Service was a bit slow this visit but it was a busy Friday night . Food excellent as before , friendly helpful staff and good value for our party of 6
Great service, so attentive and nothing too much trouble! Food was 5 star! Definitely going back ASAP
The service seemed a bit chaotic, different to when I have visited in the evening. They couldn't find my reservation even though I'd rung and spoken to someone an hour before. Not vegan friendly, but understand it's difficult to cater for everyone
Amazing menu and friendly staff who always make us feel welcome.
It's the second time I've been to the waterside in a couple of weeks and have already booked for a third time. I honestly couldn't recommend highly enough.
Lovely setting, great service and delicious food!
Lovely friendly atmosphere with a great choice in menu! The man who sat us and took our order was lovely and so knowledgeable! We had a great time and can’t wait to come back again soon!
Looking forward to many more returns
Had a fantastic experience at the waterside, will be booking again!
The food was AMAZING, hands down the best meal we’ve had in a long time. Will definitely be recommending and returning.
Lovely, peaceful, good food, good prices. Very nice manager and staff !
Love the pods they do, makes for a nicer, dryer, warmer al fresco dining experience. Food was delicious but no vegetarian option available. The service was just a bit slow, although it is hard to get that inbetween of being too much or not being there at all so I think all in all it was great
This was my second pod visit after having such a great time the first time, however- this time was a different story. Our pod was booked from 9pm to 10:45pm. We arrived at 8:45 & we were ushered straight to the pod! My friends visited the toilets and overheard the staff saying ‘are they all there yet? Get their orders straight away’ We had previously messaged to request some plain chicken for one of our fussy eaters & this was confirmed online and we were told to request this when we arrived. We made our order but the waitress was unaware of our request so we gave her the name of the chef & she said he’s not here tonight! However she said it would be ok- our drinks were brought out and the food then arrived minus the plain chicken! All things aside the food here is amazing, it’s fresh, tasty and presented in a great way. At 10pm a waitress came in and said we’d need to think about finishing up as they were closing. We still had another 45 mins left and had only had 1 drink at this point! I stated the fact that our booking was until 10:45 but they said the bar was shut, they’d cleaned it all down and there were no other customers after us so they were closed! Not great after waiting such a long time to all come out together. We spoke to Gerard who again said the bar was closed & it had all been wiped down so unfortunately we were unable to have another drink. He eventually did get us a drink after us saying we had another 40 mins - but by the time we got a drink our taxi had arrived. Very disappointed as my first pod experience was brilliant. The food is great so it’s a shame the staff wanted to desperately get home and close the restaurant. Maybe they shouldn’t work in hospitality if they don’t want to work Saturday nights ! Before this I would’ve definitely recommended you but unfortunately not now...
The best outdoor dining experience you could wish for.
Beautiful food ,lovely surroundings helpful staff.
