As a ‘restaurant with rooms’ (a concept very common in the Roux’ native France), the Waterside Inn provides delightful accommodation for diners to retire to.
After enjoying the Waterside’s exemplary haute cuisine and indulging in its finest wines, an alternative to the long drive home is an overnight stay at the Inn. Each of the 11 bedrooms has its own unique personality, combining understated luxury with a certain “je ne sais quoi”. Sadly we do not permit children under the age of 9 years in the rooms overnight.
Either hidden within the main building, or in the case of the more spacious accommodation, in cottages dotted around the restaurant, all rooms have comfortable en-suite bathrooms or shower-rooms, with l’Occitane toiletries, flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi. But staying at the Waterside Inn is less impersonal than a hotel, more like staying with friends. While we don’t run to room service, there’s a guest kitchen just along the corridor, where you’ll find fresh Nespresso coffee, a variety of teas and an honesty box for the do-it-yourself bar. And of course, in true French tradition, continental breakfast is served in the morning in your room.
We’re within just 10miles of the best known events in the social calendar: Royal Ascot, Henley Royal Regatta and Guards Polo Club. Alternatively, why not spend the day visiting Windsor Castle, Savill Gardens, or Waddesdon Manor.
