Dinner in the private dining room is a memorable experience. On arrival we enjoyed beautiful canapés with champagne and knew this was setting the marker for the delights ahead. When we took our seats there was plenty of room around and the place setting was beautiful. As each course arrived there was a wow moment, every single mouthful was delicious....

We had an overnight stay here with an evening meal and breakfast. The food was good but not exquisite. I would not return. Not because the meal was bad. It was not bad - but just because it didn't wow us in the way expected. The room was fine, the food was good. The river, I must say, was lovely...

What a wonderful wonderful lunch. A real experience to treasure. Service right from the outset is exceptional. Immaculate attention to detail and a little humour too. We were invited out to lunch by some of our customers. A real treat, because I normally wouldn't think of eating here. Even the broccoli was a sensation. Everything was magnificent! Highly recommend this...

Had lunch here between flights and if there is anyplace worth the bit of effort The Waterside Inn is the place. The food was spectacular as always. My wife began with one of the house specialities , slices of lobster in a port reduction. I had a generous portion of pike quenelle. For her main course she enjoyed a simply...

What a wonderful experience. The food was exquisite and the service impeccable. We had the tasting menu as my 60th birthday treat and I was not disappointed. Obviously, perfection comes at a premium, so not a venue for the Scrooges of this world.....

We dined here last week (end of February) and opted for the tasting menu. Every course was divine, just as one would expect from a 3 Michelin starred restaurant. I have been dining at the Waterside for some 15 years now and I noticed that of late, there have been some quite negative reviews, which concerned me and I feared...

Rather than buying each other major Christmas presents last year I suggested that we did something from my bucket list which was to eat at a 3 starred Michelin restaurant. We chose to go to The Waterside Inn which has Alain Roux as the chef-patron and I’s somewhere where I’d wanted to go for several years. I’ve eaten at a...

Enjoyed a lunchtime meal with friends during the week, where the service levels were simply outstanding from beginning to end. Greeted by a person who parked your car, the receptionist had your name on her list, the table enjoyed a nice view with glimpses of the River Thames. The level of service from the staff was faultless throughout. They were...

My wife and I have dined many times throughout 2016 and again since February 2017 at THE WATERSIDE INN never to be dis-appointed on any visit. From the moment you arrive by car and greeted by Olivier Creze you are made to feel special before being ushered into the Vestibule to be formally greeted and looked after by "The Team"...

Came with my wife yesterday and we had another great lunch. Diego is as charming as ever. We had the quenelle de brochet follow by the sole in puff pastry I can't even describe how tasty it was. You have to try the cheese trolley it is an experience on his own. The attention to details is what really impress...
