We prefer to dine al fresco and this is a great location on the river. The inside dining atmosphere is also quit lovely. Varied lunch and dinner options available, every dish we have had has been well and artfully prepared.

I want to love this place, because it is absolutly beautiful- and if you are lucky to have a seat near the river it is breathtaking. Unfortunately that is all they have going for them. Super over priced, food has never been great-and each time...More

We have eaten at The Waterhouse every time we visit Peterborough and the food has always been excellent. Great variety of new dishes each month along with the favorites that are always delicious,

We stopped in here in between lunch and dinner, so could only order off of the appetizer menu, or small bites. We had a plate of side house cut fries and fried calamari & zucchini, which turned out to be quite a bit of food...More

The food is good and the ambience is even better, overlooking the Nubanusit River in the heart of Peterborough, with linen and a quiet atmosphere it's a great place for dinner.

It's difficult to find a restaurant that is gluten free knowledgeable and welcoming one with dietary issues. The food was excellent. the wait staff very efficient and the table with a view overlooking the river was a rare treat. I'm excited about a return visit.

Two of us enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch, ordering off the brunch menu. Bloody Mary, Prosecco, and eggs two different ways, which included homemade English Muffins and Potato Cakes and Bacon. All was fine, included server Aidan. We hope to return.

Great casual lunch setting. Relatively quiet, attentive service and an excellent draft beer selection. I enjoyed the eggplant, served rollitini style. In fact, the menu is a nice departure from the standard pub-fare. If winter ever ends, seek outdoor seating by the river. Fabulous!

My wife and I returned to Waterhouse for another great lunch. We were not disappointed. My favorite is their Fish and Chips -the fish is well done and flavorable - the hand-cut fries also excellent.

We walked in unannounced one Saturday, met the manager by happenstance, and asked if there was a table that night. She said unfortunately they were completely booked. But she asked us what brought us to town; when we told... More
