One night work trip, rushed to find dinner and planned to just get takeaway and eat in the room. Popped into the Watermark and decided to stay after seeing the menu that didn’t disappoint.......ended up ordering starters, mains AND dessert! Great food and excellent atmosphere...More

We lucked a great breakfast here. The service was prompt and friendly. The food serves were plentiful without being overwhelming and the coffee was good.

We had breakfast here and couldn’t fault it. The view is lovely, the tables spread apart nicely so you don’t feel cramped. The food and service was spot on - large portions and cooked well. Definitely worth a visit.
