Not very good when you arrive; having booked a table, to be told there is a 50 min wait for food, We had to wait 15 mins before drinks order was taken, then a further 10 mins for drinks, food arrived after 45 mins, but dessert was a disaster 15 mins wait to place order, and then a further 30 mins wait for dessert, We were there for 2 hours to have 2 course meal. We will not be dining there again

Great location for a walk to build up an appetite. Great service. Clean and inviting. Great outdoor area but not enough seating for a packed bank holiday weekend.The carvery was amazing! Definitely the most expensive I have ever had. I had to think twice about ordering it. I understand due to the quality it needs to be more expensive than the average, but 50% more expensive? The double Cajun chicken burger was very disappointing. You paid extra for it to be double and not only was it dry but the second chicken fillet was not worth the extra cost due to it being half the size of the other one! My husband had this and I had the carvery. The Cavery was good, I just wouldn’t go there very often for it due to the price

We love dining at the Waterside the carvery on Sunday was delicious, only problem being the long wait for our wine and beer, even after chase up. I have to say it was very obvious that Jade and Marisa were not on duty.......missed you!

Excellent service from very friendly and attentive staff , unfortunately the food wasn’t at the same level. The fillet steak was tasteless and accompanied by what seemed like oven chips !. Given the high cost of the meal we would have expected much better food .

Service, excellent as always. We were a group of seven and although we try not to be awkward serving us is not straightforward however, all our questions and changes are met with a smile. Would highly recommend a visit if you have not been.

Food was as tasty as always but unfortunately husband’s rump steak was pink and bloody in middle despite requesting well done so swapped with him for my pork snitzel rather than request further cooking as we had already waited far longer for our main course than usual. Seemed to be an issue with time for other tables too not sure why. Still enjoyed. Pleasant staff and always tasty food. Will return. Thanks.

As always a wonderful warm welcome from the lovely Jade. We had a great Sunday with family and enjoyed the wonderful ambiance of Waterside, and thank you to Marisa for coming to say "Hello" Most definitely the best place to dine in Woodley.............see you all again very soon.

My only comment would be the children’s menu is over priced and I would suggest a two/three course and a drink for £1.50 for example. I won’t buy the meal again, she can share mine as only 2

Had Sunday carvery however no idea what meat was available as it was all piled up together. Was naturally very busy and overcrowded as only a small area allocated for the carvery so just had beef as it was what the chef was carving at the time. Minimal choice of veg no option of stuffing however what we had was very tasty. Will try the carvery again on a regular Sunday as Easter Sunday was probably busier than usual. Delicious dessert of pear & fig pavlova. Thanks. We will return (again) 🙂

We were a large party including 5 children. The sevice was excellent. The childrens requests were all catered for very well. Food very good. Only negative comment was that we all felt the portion size was very large and therefore some food was left.
