I'd visited the Waterfront once before, years ago. On this occasion my wife and I were meeting with some friends for lunch. The pub is situated at the northern edge of Market Harborough on the canalside. All of us in the party opted for the lunchtime deal of two courses for £11.50. My starter was a very pleasant duck pate... More

I came to the Waterfront for a pre-Christmas party with friends and family, taking the upstairs part of the restaurant. Entrance was right next to the bar, which makes for a quick easy order as you walk through. There is ample choice of gins, with around 50 different kinds being displayed and offered, and being somewhat a fan of gins,... More

Had a late afternoon snack with a drink and the staff and the food were great. It must be great in the summertime sat by the canal and marina.

This is a local place for me and I visit with my partner for coffee quite frequently because the location in the canal is exquisite. We are always greeted warmly and staff can never do enough for us! I came here for lunch for my birthday which was low key and we had a very lovely meal together so I'm... More

This restaurant has a really attractive location on the canal. I've eaten there before and enjoyed the experience. This time the service was slow and inept. One of our party is vegan, one a fish-eating vegetarian who is gluten intolerant. We informed the staff on this in booking 3 weeks before. We reminded them again on the morning of the... More

Great meal and great service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were a little surprised it wasn't busy and wondered if there had been problems but everything was good. A relaxing enjoyable start to the seasons festivities.

Visited this restaurant last week. The venison pie was very tasty. The pork belly was amazing!! Deserts were great too. Tried the fig cheesecake. Waiters were very attentive and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Would most definitely visit again.
