Very pleased with the food. The chef made a special gluten free version of the mushroom Wellington.would like to see more veggie options that are also gluten free.

I took my girlfriend here for a evening meal. It was the first night they started the new menu- I had the steak and ale pie which was very filling. I couldn’t finish it all which was a shame as I love my food.. my partner had the chicken breast-I take off my hat to the chef the chicken didn’t come out dry at all.. service was really good can’t fault them at all.. All in all I would recommend eating here get place to eat.

Friendly staff, amazing food and well-presented! Perfect location too! The sole, beef wellington, sticky bbq wings and goats cheese were delicious!!!

I was left very disappointed by the whole meal which was made worse that it was my fiancées birthday meal. The white wine was served warm, the food was ok but bland and didn’t taste of much. Considering the meal/drinks cost over £100 for two people, I won’t be coming back or recommending the restaurant to friends or family.

Limited sides. Limited deserts. Food was amazing. Cooked perfectly. Service was prompt. Didn’t have to wait long for your food. Bit of a dull atmosphere. Not much going on.

I have to say that the food was excellent. I would happily dine there again and recommend to anyone. If you are going on a Sunday and want a quiet meal, then later is better. We arrived at 6 and it was starting to quieten down.

This restaurant is fantastic - I always have a memorable dining experience, whether I'm here with friends or family. The food is absolutely delicious and it's presented so well, too. I always find the service really good, so this bistro really ticks all the boxes if you're looking for a table for two or a big celebration.

We have been coming to the Waterfront for years, it is one of our favourite restaurants. When we saw the menu had changed, we were worried, however no need! Was a lovely meal, service was excellent and not disappointed. Thank you team

The service was great. Unfortunately there was only 1 main option (and I think 1 starter too) for vegetarians, and it wasn't very good (sorry!). I won't be coming back unless you change the menu. There should be more than 1 option ... I recommend you try to eat it :)
