What's New?


The Waterfront’s Events Manager, Bronwyn Gillespie, reports that bride and grooms are once again taking tentative steps up the aisle.

‘Two days after the pub reopened in April we were able to stage a civil ceremony in the Crow’s Nest, but, as we all know, the law is an ass and the happy couple and their fifteen guests were forbidden from eating inside! They settled for Prosecco on the balcony overlooking the Marina, and to make their day even better, The Waterfront surprised them with home-made complimentary canapés.’

‘Only a handful of couples have cancelled and received a full refund. Most have just put the date back, sometimes more than once, so if the Government sticks to its word and lifts restrictions, we shall have a busy eighteen months ahead. In fact, I’m looking for an assistant!’


With months of compulsory closure ahead, the Waterfront management picked up the phone in the New Year and found tradesmen with not much to do either. Orders for a restaurant refurb were placed and we hope our customers will be as thrilled as we are by the difference!

Restored tables  and upholstered chairs in rich fabric are a great match for the re-sanded timber floor. Contemporary lighting, mirrors and fresh pictures give The Place To Be a whole new look – not to mention the area set aside for drinkers.

And there’s more . . . but you’ll find that out when you visit! Look forward to seeing you soon.


Prepare to be blown away by five fabulous Breeze Huts in the Waterfront garden! These thatched luxury shacks seating six or eight can be booked for everyday use or special occasions. Weatherproof and heated!

Pre-booking only – minimum of four persons.


Everything’s SMART these days, and with their new uniforms The Waterfront staff is no exception. Wearing name badges is part of our initiative to make you feel at home.


Powered by 100% electricity The Waterfront’s huge consumption of energy results in eye-watering annual bills.

Not anymore!

Ninety 450w solar panels are delivering an estimated 35.89MWH of output per annum and offsetting 10.09 tonnes of carbon.

In layman’s terms this is the equivalent of planting 463 trees each year. And we plant trees at Barton Marina too!


Aubrey Allen, wholesale butcher to many of Britain’s Michelin star restaurants, supplies meat products to The Waterfront.

The meat only comes from farmers who respect their animals and operate under the highest welfare standards.

We might pay a bit more, but our customers can taste the difference!


We grind small at the Waterfront when it comes to looking after our customers, and this applies to coffee beans!

We want you to enjoy the best coffee you can, the way you like to drink it.

Our chosen blend of coffee is lovingly hand-roasted by Stewarts of Trent Bridge, and their experts visited the Waterfront to provide barista training for our staff. Relax in the knowledge that a lot of love and attention has gone into every bean on its journey to your cup!
