"The enchanting riverbank setting is as English as Miss Marple, although this sumptuously furnished, cosseting dining room is in the business of providing the trappings for Alain Roux’s subtly inventive take on classic French haute cuisine. The Waterside Inn has been around since 1972, held three Michelin stars for half that time and is now considered something of a national institution – delivering a luxury experience with consummate expertise and “genuine charm”, thanks to legions of impeccable staff"
