Absolutely fantastic night, enjoyed by all members of the party. It is the 2nd year in a row we have made The Waterside our Xmas venue and yet again they didn't let us down, Fantastic food, great atmosphere and attentive staff. Highly recommended

We had Christmas lunch. The staff were excellent, friendly, attentive and asking us if everything was ok. Food was good, well cooked and lots of it, our plates were huge. The desserts were lovely. How glad we were that we booked at the Waterside. Would not hesitate to eat here again as we all had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Another fantastic Christmas party at the Waterside. This is our third year in the row having our office party here and excellent service as always, no doubt we will be back. The pre-ordering system e
