We were a party of 26 including children and the food was delicious and the service excellent.

Great idea to have Easter eggs for the kids. Also being a family the kids eating free on Sundays is a big draw to come back.

Adults meals great. Kids meals not childish enough. Kids fish and chips too adult like. Homemade burger too chargrilled and bun too toasted. Adults fine. Kids struggled to eat. For this reason we wont be back for around another 5 years.

My three friends and I had a wonderful Sunday roast and great desserts. Two of my friends had Eton Mess and both commented too much cream and not enough meringue. Also it was rather noisy when a party of eight or nine people sat next door to us. I have six great grandchildren myself so not opposed to children but I think the acoustics are a bit loud. Apart from that will definitely come back again. Food and staff fabulous.

Service was nice and friendly and relatively fast. Unfortunatey, the food was not worth the money. £7 for a basic sandwich and a plate of what we're clearly oven chips, and a cider that cost me £5 for one bottle. Probably wouldn't come again by choice as it just isn't value for money.

Pleased to see that one can now book any half-hour start time for Sunday lunch - much more convenient. Really liked the vegetable selection at the carvery. Meat was fantastic as usual.

first time we have visited The Waterside, pleasantly surprised to say that the food was really nice, fresh and cooked well. The service was attentive and friendly without being over the top. We would happily visit again. Many Thanks to all the staff.

It was very clear that the restaurant had been very busy for Sunday lunch, but staff seemed to be too pleased with themselves for getting through lunch and didn't care about the two tables who had come for early dinner. Table wasn't ready for our booking at 5, despite there being only one other table in use. Then a family who arrived after us were served before us, despite us ordering at the earliest opportunity. Food took 45 minutes to come and we were very fortunate that our 1 year old and 4 year old behaved impeccably during such a long wait for their dinners. My son asked for ketchup when he ordered his food, but again this didn't come into 10 minutes after we recieved our food (and only when I walked up to fetch it). It was our first visit after recently moving to Woodley. Food was lovely, and the place is lovely. Do understand it can be challenging after a busy few hours but the lull shouldn't be an excuse. Better to close the restaurant at 4pm than to deliver that poor level of service. We probably will be back, but only when we can come shortly after opening.

Manager very welcoming. She told us half price food on the evening we were there. Service was quite slow, but gave us time to chat. Food was delicious. Will certainly be booking again Do like the decor since the refurbishment. There are a few cosy corners
