The sun is sparkling on the river Thames, the ducks are having a splashing time and the rowers are out for exercise and fun. If you are lucky enough to have one of the best window tables at The Waterside at Bray, this will be your view. Your car will already have been parked for you; the warm and welcoming...

This is our 2nd visit to this wonderful location where we experienced the fabulous lunch menu and as you would expect, the food is exquisite and the service is impeccable. It is one of those rare places where you receive first class service but it doesn't feel pretentious. I love this place and cannot recommend it enough.

As a 50th birthday treat my wife took me to The Waterside Inn at Bray for dinner and to stay over. The review is therefore in two parts. Arriving at The Waterside it looks like many other village inns in the Thames Valley - a two storey white building with small windows - but as soon as you enter that...

I am lost for words to describe the excellence of this restaurant! I am sure they could survive pretty well without my assessment and approval (English understatement) but I could not let the day pass without thanking them for a wonderful lunch and congratulate them on maintenance of a standard that leaves others in their wake. We enjoyed their autumn...

The Waterside Inn sits on the river Thames offering beautiful views from the restaurant and its rooms. This is not a hotel , so no room service, night porter or large lounges - it's a beautiful restaurant with rooms. Our room , La Tamise was lovingly furnished and had a shared balcony overlooking the Thames. La Cuisine, a self service...

This as always was a wonderful experience. Always superb service and wonderful food. 30+ years with 3 Michelin stars says it all. We love going there to eat our favourite dishes and are always made welcome from the very minute you drive up to the entrance. Nowhere quite like it in the UK.

The team here is just amazing - everyone you encounter are genuine, helpful and so friendly, and they make sure they look after your needs well. That alone is good reason enough to stay at Waterside Inn. Add in the convenient location (near London, Oxford, Windsor & Heathrow), the superb restaurant where the food and hospitality is top notch, to-die-for...

As a surprise for John on his 85 th birthday we went to The Waterside Inn for lunch. We had the excellent tasting menu, and some good wine, and came away very happy. I think we shall go again! Maybe my birthday another time. Save up and go and try it!
