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

The Sunday Cavery is without a doubt the best cavery I’ve ever had. You certainly get your money’s worth in the quality of food but also the portion size is very generous. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend on a Sunday!

Apart from a start fly table that could have been cleaned before resetting, we have a good meal. Food, service and good value all round! Will come again.

Fantastic meal (meat feast platter): perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Great variety of seating areas from little nooks and crannies to areas for larger groups. Smart decor and attentive service. Thoroughly enjoyable lunch.

Excellent Christmas Day the food was good. I would suggest maybe a choice of starters would be better and the sprouts needed a few more minutes but other than that it was great. Maria was brilliant and really made our lunch thank you

The starters could of been more of a choice. The main was perfect and also instead of having 5 puddings it would have been nice to just have the choice of one. Overall it was perfect.

Used to love coming to waterside. What a difference now. No atmosphere, place was empty although only 5 days before Xmas day. Order was rushed and then one of the party had to wait for his chips - 15mins so then rest of the food was cold. Side order completely missed off. Tap water was sparkling. Glasses and cutlery were dirty. No waiting staff to complain to. They all disappeared. Really need to bring back old management team to bring place back up to good standard again. Won't be rushing back.

I had a steak that was not that good and generally the food was not that hot. The manager did offer a replacement meal and knocked the cost of our wine from the meal. However I do believe the food needs to be consistently good for people to return.
