One of the best Sunday Lunches Lovely generous amount of meat, good home baked Yorkshire puddings and vegetables. Nice amount of space in the pub.

Lovely food, Bobotie was great and tasted exactly as it did in South Africa. My husband said his steak was the best he had ever tasted (high praise indeed from him). Staff were very friendly and helpful and all six of us had a very enjoyable evening. Thank you

The food was just disappointing overall. One customers specific dietary needs were met. However, the food was just plain and nothing special. Certainly not value for money. The Crown at Playhatch is far superior to the Waterside and we were very disappointed. This was not our first visit and the food quality has always been poor considering the costs that are charged. The staff were friendly and polite.

We had a very nice meal outside on the terrace as it was such a beautiful warm evening. However, we were dining in the non smoking area, but at least 2 of the tables in this area had people smoking. I wanted to say something but my daughter persuaded me not to as she was embarrassed. Please could the staff make sure that non smoking areas are just that. It really does spoil a pleasant meal. Thank you.

Nice to see subtle changes to the menu with some new dishes. Thai Chicken Curry great, and wife had the Gammon Steak which wasn’t really good too.

Service good, staff pleasant, drinks nice. Food mediocre though. Fish platter particularly uninspiring - dry fish on a bed of soggy fries. Big portions don’t make up for lacklustre taste and quality.

I had the Sunday carvery, plenty of food but not top quality. We booked in advance and were given a poorly positioned table, probably because we booked in advance. The other better positioned tables weren't used during our stay.

We were a large party celebrating a colleagues retirement. Whole process from booking to paying ran very smoothly. The service was excellent and I think everybody was very happy with their meal. Thank you - I will definitely be back and so hopefully will other members of the group,

Lots of dishes missing from the menu and rather than being offered a choice of replacement one of our party was told what he was having instead. Ribs were dry and needed a sauce of some kind. Fairly slow on drinks service. Drinks quite expensive in comparison to other local venues. A shame as when it first opened the food was good and worth the money.

Food came out in 10minutes and tasted as frozen as it looked. I had mac and cheese and it came out looking worse then canned. A real shame as I was recommended by a few people and the service was really good. I won’t be back again though.

We took a friend with us on a Sunday evening and he was very impressed. We had steak for the first time here and it was delicious. As usual the service was brillant, the young staff work very hard and always with a smile. Will be back again soon. Thanks for a lovely meal.

We were very much looking forward to our visit after our previous booking at waterside was lovely and we really enjoyed the food. Unfortunately this time we were very dissapointed. We had pre-booked a table in your restaurant, Just 1 hour prior to our booking we received a call to say there had been an error inputting our reservation into the system and no tables available. We were given the choice of sitting at the bar or outside where it is self service, or cancelling the reservation. There was no attempt of an apologie for the error on your part. We decided to still come as we very much enjoyed the food last time. We arrived to be told that sitting outside we can only order off the garden menu, this was not explained over the phone, the garden menu was disappointing. When we booked we were looking forward to an evening meal, 3 course meal, wine, and a lovely atmosphere, we did not receive any of this, and the most frustrating part was no effort being made to apologise and accomodate us on an error on your behalf.

Very enjoyable. We visited on Father's Day but that wasn't as successful. We waited nearly an hour for our starters. We feel the restaurant tried to take on too much, coping with indoor customers and outside BBQ. But we were compensated however. This visit was much better as it was mid week and it was quiet.
