The food was ok for the price. It was a little busy when we first arrived but quickly quited down.However there was a table nearby with 3 dogs one of witch was very yappy and disturbed some people also another person at the table let there dog lie on the table not very hygienic at all. This put us off big time. I understand restaurant being dog friendly but there has to be some guidelines.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and a game or two of pool, got there inbetween service breakfast / lunch so we had a 30 minute wait before ordering any main menu items, which was fine with us we grabbed a drink and headed to the games room.Games room had 4 pool tables and plenty of other games also to play, separate from them bar / restaurant too, its is own building which makes a nice difference.Once we hit lunch time I ordered a cheese and bean jacket potato at first the price shocked me a little, but when food arrived there was no skimping on the quantity, and also the quality was decent also.Not my biggest review but I enjoyed it nice solid lunch, plenty of cheese and beans and a good helping of dressed side salad which was nice!Overall I would score it 7.5/10, if you’re looking for a quick lunch, without all bells and whistles and couple of drinks with nice big garden and somehere for kids to play this is great, but also nice and quiet areas of restaurant if you want a Sunday carvery in peace.

Had a lovely one night stay at the Waterfront Inn. As we stayed on a Thursday night we were lucky enough to be there for the mid week carvery and it was fantastic value for money at just over £10 each. The room was clean, tidy and cosy and we couldn't hear any outside noise (we were at the back). The breakfast was really good too with tasty produce and well presented. Honestly could not find a negative in anything apart from the outside blue walls needing a lick of paint so really happy with our stay.

Food was tasty and big portions, however not so happy with the attidute of team reagarding request to get extra duvet!as we shared one bed with my friend) answer was they can not find bedcloth and in the end that are very busy at the bar. Well pint of beer is more important then hotel guest a bit of shame I will say. We were hiking and staying for one night.
