Never disappointed from a visit to the Waterside. From Sunday carvary or mid week dinner. The food never disappoints. The staff are friendly and children are welcome. This is a great place for Saturday lunch for a catch up with friends or lunch with the family

Have eaten and drank here on numerous occasions and the food is always amazing. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The owners Alan and John are great too and are good for a joke and laugh with the customers. Always a good atmosphere in the lounge.

Good food very reasonably priced. Plenty of staff all very friendly and helpful kids meal deal is brilliant includes their main course a drink and ice cream. Pints are a little bit on the expensive side but they do some deals on bottled beer and spirits with a mixer.

Was here with my family 2 or 3 times, only went as it was close to my sisters home and she has small kids! The food is good but the main barman, think he was the manager, wasn't do polite! It's not a place I'd openly choose to go to!
