The young girl who served us at dinner was lovely. Amazing service.
Very friendly staff and great quality food.
Came for afternoon tea with my mum as it was her birthday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty to eat for two. Staff were very courteous and attentive.
Lovely stylish restaurant with a great view of the beach and sea. Food is delicious and fantastic team of staff!
Lovely night out for a special birthday with the family. Lovely venue, taken one star off as area we were seated in was away from main dining area and a bit quiet, although appreciate we were a larger group. Food and drink was very good, would have liked few more meat free options. Service very attentive and very pleasant staff but had to ask three times for water for table. Thought overall price was very good value.
Always a pleasure to eat here.
Nice two course lunch.
Lovely location , great food and staff
Lovely lunch, lentil soup was superb, all 3 of us had different mains and all were delicious ! Great service and very friendly staff.
6 of us came for a late lunch and the service was terrible, even though the restaurant was half empty. There seemed to be an atmosphere between the staff, and I waited 25 minutes for my dessert (15 mins after the rest of our party got theirs) we waited 20 minutes for a bottle of lager after asking 3 times for it. A member of staff however did come and apologise, but not I'm not sure I'll eat here again. Unfortunately this was a gift for my dad's birthday, him and my mum stayed overnight and enjoyed their stay, it's just a pity we had a bad experience in the restaurant.
We asked for heating to be turned up. It was no problem.
The hotel was excellant we staid overnight and the room was beutifull food in the restaurant excellant especially the young waitrose Rebekka who was most attntive 10 out of 10 superb
Absolutely great family time was had by all. No complaints whatsoever. Food great,staff warm and friendly, occasionally missed parts of the order but no great problem. can well recommend Waterside Hotel to anyone
On arrival we were taken to our seat and then had our order taken which was afternoon tea after about 30 minutes the manager came and apologised for the wait but our food was being freshly made, but did notice another couple being sat at a table order taken and served food and we were still waiting when they finished there food also theres was a meal ours was afternoon tea not anything extra special to be cooked in all we waited 50 minutes for our afternoon tea that was supposed to be a nice treat for my husband's 64th birthday. I AM SORRY BUT THIS KIND OF SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE. Also the hotel wasn't busy so how it took so long to make six finger sandwiches a couple of cream scones I will never know your hotel knew this was booked in so should have had thing in place to be served a faster. Also on ordering my husband asked if he could have his scone toasted and was told that would be fine then 10 minutes that he couldn't because the scones were already made so how did it take another 40 minutes to get to our table. I am sorry to say I would not recommend your hotel as we were left to sit and watch while every one else was being served . I massive disappointed for a birthday gift for my husband.
Craig our waiter was absolutely brilliant, he is an asset to Waterside and made our evening delightful x
Birthday meal.from.my hubby fr my birthday fantastic meal excellent service and prices kept hubby happy too xx
Had the Sunday Roast which was tasty but was a bit on the cold side. Waiting staff did offer it to go back to kitchen but we had started eating and didn't want to wait on it being reheated.
So impressed with the cheeriness of the staff
Excellent food,and excellent service great value love the atmosphere that's why I keep coming back.
The soft drinks we received came in a bottle, however one of the party noticed that they had recieved a non-diet bottle, which had a diet bottle top. We raised this with our server and the drink was replaced. On exiting the restaurant we noticed that glass bottles of soft drinks were being filled up with draft at the bar, which we felt was a little unscrupulous. The starters and main meals were lovely. However, the sticky toffee pudding was dry and hard, and I couldn’t get my fork through it. We had booked a table online and received confirmation of this via email. However, when we arrived we were told there was no reservation. Having visited the restaurant previously on many occasions, I will be extremely reluctant to return.
Glass dirty had to ask for clean one Sent main course back asking chef to check the menu as what was served had items missing Had to request ketchup twice before it arrived at table Very poor standard of food , very disappointed as I had been before and ordered same main course but what was served this time was awful - will not be recommending this establishment to anyone - poor poor standard of food
Service could not have been any better, but I thought it was a bit expensive
We have all visited on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. Will definitely return - apart from good food and service Waterside has a fabulous location.
Beautiful location, love the beach vibe decor! Decent value for money, good menu.
