My love for food is ever growing.
Discovering new places to feed my inner foodie is always something I enjoy so when The Waterfront Restaurant at Wyboston contacted me to review their new menu*, I jumped at the chance.
I actually used to live close by to Wyboston and never knew this place existed. Tucked behind the spa and the golf course is a restaurant with a beautiful view of the lake. It’s the perfect setting for a tranquil evening or a date night for two.
Chris and I decided to treat it as date night and got into our glad rags and were pleased to see we didn’t look over dressed in the setting. We were seated by the maître d at a table looking out over the lake and could see swans taking off into the sunset which added to the atmosphere of a lovely evening.
We were treated to a three course meal and had been preparing for it all day with our bellies ready for food. For an appetiser we started off with fresh bread with balsamic oil and tapenade. The olive bread and onion bread tasted delicious, even just with a bit of butter.
For starter Chris chose the ham hock and as the cheese fiend I am, I opted for the goats cheese fritters with celeriac salad. As you can see the presentation was gorgeous and they tasted incredible.
There was so much to choose from on the menu but we decided to choose the chef’s specials as they were a bit different to your average dish. I chose the chicken with cannelloni and a side of salad whereas Chris had the lamb and a side of veggies. Again the presentation was beautiful and the portion sizes were just right that we had room for dessert - the most important course of course!
In between all the eating I drank prosecco and Chris drank beer. The ale on tap wasn’t really to Chris’ taste so he soon went onto larger which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Dessert was just incredible – Chris having the tiramisu and me the sticky toffee pudding. I know sticky toffee pudding is more of a winter dessert but the heart wants what the heart wants and I was by no means disappointed. The sponge was rich but light at the same time and the toffee just oozed gorgeousness, especially with the chill of the vanilla ice cream. I was in heaven and feeling suitably sleepy! We were also presented with a complimentary glass of champagne each which went down perfectly with dessert.
The Waterfront made for the perfect date night setting for Chris and I and we really did feel relaxed, taking in that wonderful view and eating beautiful food.
We will definitely be returning very soon and will most likely book into the spa next door before hand as it really does look incredible on the website!
