“Excellent Food and very good service, whenever my wife and I visit Market Harborough we mostly head for the Waterfront, service is quick and friendly”


“Just fabulous all round. The staff and management pulled out all of the stops to make our day so incredibly special. The food, drinks were just lovely and the service second to none. – we couldn’t have wished for more”.


“Great menu, great food, great service…highly recommended!!!!”


“The Waterfront just keeps getting better, the service is so special and you’re made to feel very special, every single diner feels as if they are receiving the most fantastic service whereas in truth every diner is treated the same but it just feels so good and warming.”


“The food, that has gone from strength to strength and I tried the courgette and cumin fritter with mango chutney, the tempura batter was so light it’s a wonder the courgettes didn’t float above the plate, followed by the sweet potato, butternut squash with chickpea tagine, the couscous was to die for, the whole dish an explosion of flavours without any one flavour overpowering the other, a truly gastronomic delight”.


“You just must give it a try if you want a real treat and not just a meal.”


“It’s light and airy, and the service was good. However the food was amazing, I really couldn’t fault it in any way.”


“The presentation was good, the quality of the food was great and the portion size was just right.”


“I even kept talking about how much I enjoyed the food after we had left, as it was just so good”.


“The food was excellent. Proportion sizes were ideal; not too much but not too little”.


“Overall we had a really nice meal – would recommend The Waterfront highly”.


“Whenever we fancy a good lunch out, we often come here”


“We like the warm welcome, the calm quiet atmosphere and the food, which always seems to be the same simple but wholesome fare”.


“We popped in for lunch before our canal boat was ready. Excellent service and some of the best squid I’ve had in a long time. Good Value and partnered with The Foxton Locks Inn”


“Well worth a visit”


“Myself and my wife visited the waterfront recently and I am very pleased to say that the food was some of the best food I have ever had,


“We have been to many top restaurants around the UK including 3 of Gordon Ramsey’s, Heston Blumenthal, Raymond Blanc’s, to name a few, this restaurant is most definitely up there amongst these, I simply cannot recommend this restaurant enough, and if I worked for the Michelin guide I would give them a star or maybe 2!!”
