The Waterside Inn is currently closed due to the national COVID-19 lockdown. It seems highly unlikely we will be opening before the beginning of May. If you have reservations falling in March or April we will be in touch in due course after the Government update on lockdown measures on 15th February 2021. We are not accepting any new bookings for dates before May 2021. We will only be able to fulfil orders for gift vouchers at this time. Keep Safe.

Message from Chef Alain Roux

The Waterside Inn is temporarily closed as a result of the latest lockdown.

If you have a reservation to dine and / or stay at The Waterside Inn up to the end of February 2021 you should assume your reservation is cancelled. We have reached out to all bookings concerned so if you have a booking and have not been contacted please email

We are still hoping to reopen after Easter but with the current unpredictable length of this lockdown, we now feel that it is highly unlikely we will be opening before the beginning of May. We will not be making any formal statements for the moment but rather waiting until 15th February when we believe government will formally announce what their next plan of action is regarding the current lockdown measures.

If you have a reservation for March and April may we ask that you “sit tight” for now.  Rest assured we shall contact you as soon as we know what government say mid-February.

If you would like to make reservations for May, June or July 2021 please submit your request either via our website or by emailing

Keep safe and we look forward to welcoming you to The Waterside Inn, hopefully, in the late spring.

Best wishes

Alain Roux, Chef Patron
