Went to the waterfront last week with a friend for lunch. We hadn't booked but they weren't particularly busy so could accommodate us. The service was attentive and polite. I had the chicken and my friend had the fish and chips and both were very tasty. The chicken was tender and served in a lovely sauce with mashed potato. Would... More

I have family in Leicestershire & on a few occasions have enjoyed lunch at The Waterfront, Sunday carvery is good value (even lamb available) You do need to book as it is a popular venue, but I am sure you will not be disappointed.

A wonderful evening. The atmosphere was just right for an understated date. The white bait was beautiful and the Sea Bass Devine! Excellent service. Prompt but not pushy. Just a shame we didn't have time for desert. Need to book a later baby sitter next time.

It's a year or two since we last visited the Waterfront and after our recent experience it is a case of absence making the heart grow fonder. Tuesday lunchtime is not the liveliest time to choose, but there were enough people - age range 22-72 - to engender a pleasant atmosphere in a setting which blended well with the 'barge... More

A great location on the Market Harborough Basin, home to a small number of Narrowboats. Old building made modern in appearance. Varied menu, looks appetising.

FANTASTIC CARVERY, good prices even when my mum had one or two Double rhubarb Gins! Beautifully presented starters that are a delight with every bite! The carvery was exceptionally good! The desert was just stunning, if I could give more that 5/5 its would of been a 10 in every bit of the experience at The waterfront! You've got it... More

It all started with a booking for 12 people to remember what would of been my mothers 80th birthday as she died earlier this year.Having arrived on time for a 2.30 sitting we ended up waiting nearly 2 hours to get some food which was more likely a ploy to get you to spend money behind the bar ,this was...

Went here the other week for drinks and a meal with 10 working colleagues service was very good and food slightly above average would come again if in the area in the summer as the long boat yard at the back looks interesting to send some time investergating
