The pub underwent a small refurbishment that included a brand new food menu as well as a delicious carvery and freshly roasted chicken rotisserie. To complement the wide food range, the pub now stocks a vast selection of award-winning cask beers, lagers, premium spirits and specially selected wines to pair with your meal. Some great deals include our Two for One Mondays where you and a friend can both dine together for the price of one. There's also Steak Nights every Thursday as well as Curry Nights on Wednesdays plus pub favourite; Fish Fridays - where you can expect to enjoy Joseph Holt’s beer battered cod with chips, tartare sauce and your choice of peas or mushy peas and a drink all for £8.95*. What's more, kids eat for £2 on Tuesday to Fridays from 12 pm to 6 pm so you can spend more quality time with your kids and know that they're having a proper meal. 

In addition, we have added a brand new children's play area for the little ones to build up an appetite. The Water's Edge pub also runs Quiz Nights every Wednesday from 8.30pm, which includes some great quizzes and prizes to be won!
