The Waterside Inn is currently closed due to the national COVID-19 lockdown and will not be opening before Wednesday 19th May. The official reopening date will be formally confirmed in April. We are accepting new bookings. If you wish to reserve lunch, dinner or dinner with a room from 19th May onwards up to the end of October 2021 please use the Reservations link at the top of this website. Our online shop can only fulfil orders for gift vouchers at this time. Keep Safe.

While our restaurant celebrates the finest cuisine, you will find the ambience relaxed. Floor to ceiling glass windows offer an uninterrupted view of the river to watch the world float by, charmingly reflected in the mirrors on the opposite side of the room. In warm weather our riverside terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of champagne or a cup of coffee.

Dress Code

Please be aware that our restaurant dress code is “elegantly smart”.  Although gentlemen do not need to wear a jacket or tie, long trousers are compulsory. Casual sportswear is not permitted in the restaurant or on the terrace by the river.  Please note that entry to the restaurant will be entirely at the management’s discretion, should this guidance be unheeded.  Thank you for your kind understanding.


Our main resident and guest car parking is located behind the terrace of cottages opposite The Waterside Inn at the end of Ferry Road. You will find our doorman on duty at lunch and dinner to assist with valet parking for our non-resident guests. Since Ferry Road is a small and residential in character, please share transport, as far as possible, to minimise disruption to our neighbours.

Our restaurant is not suitable for children under the age of 9.

Request a Reservation

Send us your requirements and we’ll be in touch to confirm your booking. The Waterside Inn is not suitable for babes in arms and children younger than 9 years of age.
