great food, excellent service, would highly recommend, thursday night is steak night, ( steak, chips, drink) for £10 so also great value for money too
Food was even better than the last time we were there and the service was excellent. As always, lovely atmosphere and a pub dog in the bar makes it perfect for after meal drinks!
Nothing too much effort. Very pleasant staff who made us feel very welcome. Will be back and intend to try the steak night. Recommend to try it.
Tried "Steak Night" for first time and wasn't disappointed. Food delicious and even paying extra for some side dishes it was definitely great value for your money.
The Waterside Bistro continues to please with its friendly welcoming and efficient service, well chosen drinks offering and simple unpretentious food, all at a an affordable price. Dropped a point for a number of first choice menu/drinks options not being available on the last two times I have been there, but the alternatives were more than acceptable, and yes that is a bit mean of me! Confidently and thoroughly recommended. Every time I go whether with family or friends I think I should do it more often.
What a fantastic place and great staff - they couldn't be more helpful or cheerful. Totally dog friendly and the food was amazing. We booked this place on the back of previous reviews, for my wife's birthday evening meal. Just in case we went the day before to check it out and on both occasions, we had a fabulous meal including 2 children's meals. The staff were even kind enough to agree to bring in a surprise birthday cake that we brought in - I didn't expect them all to turn up and sing happy birthday to her but they did and it made her day. Thanks to all the staff and we will be coming to see you again in the future. Cheers Simon
Staff were very helpful from booking( with several changes) through to the event itself. Staff also played along with surprise element to dinner. Whilst there were a few disruptions to the flow of service due to the boisterous nature of one or two of our guests the staff remained calm all the way through. Staff were also happy to play some of our own music played via an I Pod at the conclusion of the night. All went away happy and I would recommend it to all. The only downside was the unavailability of champagne on the night however that did not dampen our spirits.
We visited the Waterside on the strength of their steak every Thursday. The bar was friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed a pre dinner drink before heading through to the main restaurant. So far, so good. After this, however, things went gradually downhill. The steak we ordered was of very poor quality, with more gristle and fat than meat. When we mentioned this to the server she acknowledged our complaint and promised to feed our comments back to the kitchen. We waited for the server to come back to our table with either a discretionary drink or money off our bill, however we were to be disappointed again. There was no offer of any compensation nor were any further orders for drinks or dessert taken. While other tables around us were brought the bill, we had to pay at the bar. When mentioning our compliant to the owner we were informed that 20% had been taken off our bill. Great! But no one had had the courtesy to inform us of this. Had we known this we would have possibly ordered more drinks, so they effectively did themselves out of additional sales. In conclusion The Watersise Bistro is a pleasant enough place to go for a drink however I'd give the food a miss in future and wouldn't recommend the service.
Excellent choice on the lunch menu and wide range of drinks, especially Gin at the bar. Food was full of flavour, hot and served by friendly, helpful staff in a beautiful location, close to the centre of the town but far enough away to be peaceful and with a great view over the River Tyne. Couldn't fault it and happy to go back.
Excellent all round on Saturday evening. Efficient and very friendly service, food nicely produced and delicious. No complaints. However standard seems very variable. Have been when service poor and food not good, this was midweek, so maybe all stops pulled out for a very busy Saturday. It was a very pleasant visit this time. Top marks and thank you to all staff
