Charming restaurant with charming staff, especially Jen who looks after customers. Credit to Paul the chef who produces great meals. Steak is tender, mouthwatering and accompanied by tasty sauce. Desserts are divine Would highly recommend

Booking a meal out on Christmas day may not suit everybody but the best decision for us this year. This is only a small place but friendly welcome, food was excellent and best of all no pots to wash The Christmas menu was small but varied enough to be able to suit most people One minor criticism the oven baked...

Great food and staff - will definitely go again when next in the area. All food cooked to order, beautifully presented, very tasty and not over seasoned. All 3 courses and muse bouche of soup were delightful.

Had a wonderful day with the family yesterday. Food was beautiful . Service amazing . I didn't want a Christmas lunch so I asked if they could do me a steak instead . Don't think they do steaks normally but they did one and it was the best steak I've ever eaten . Highly recommend

Visited for a company Christmas lunch. On entry we were met with a small but interesting range of draft beers. The wine list was somewhat depleted because there had been a Christmas party the evening before. The ambiance was a little lacking, but this wasn’t helped by the fact that we were the only party there. This isn’t the restaurant’s... More

Visited here on Tuesday for my birthday celebration. The evening did not get off to a very good start when all the draught beer was 'off' ( apparently it was warm ) so had to settle for bottled. The place was cold with only 1 small radiator to heat the whole restaurant. By the end of the evening my feet... More

Dear Christine, We deeply apologize about our draft beer being off, unfortunately it was out of our control as our cooler had sadly broken, and was awaiting on a new part to be fitted. Thank you for pointing out about the radiators, we have now re-positioned the heaters which now thoroughly warms the restaurant throughout. We hope that this will... More

We have just had our first Christmas dinner of the year. We visited the Waterside Restaurant in Wharf Street, Shipley and were not disappointed. Three good courses for £22 is good value for excellent food.. The mushroom and thyme soup was the smoothest and tasted sublime. The other starter we had was the oxtail risotto with a parmesan tuile. Oxtail... More

Very accommodating staff. Chef fit to our requirements ie young child. The food is the perfect balance of quality meets price. You get that high end taste for a reasonable price.

We had read many reviews, before booking this restaurant for 4 adults and to be honest, we could not have chosen better. We were bursting at the end, our waitress was friendly, polite and it felt very homely and rustic at the same time. I would not hesitate to recommend this fabulous restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

Our first visit to Shipley and therefore this restaurant. Having travelled up from Bristol we were looking for somewhere to eat in the evening. Trip advisor came good as this is great place in a great location. Christmas Menu was on and it didn't disappoint. Probably will never come back as we are not from the area but would recommend....
