The Waterway is a stylish bar and restaurant in Maida Vale, West London. Our menu is predominantly French and Modern European and focuses on delivering classic brasserie dishes. We also have a large, south-facing outdoor terrace that is open throughout the summer period. On the terrace, we offer a light grill menu for an alfresco dining experience by the Grand Union Canal. In addition, our wine list focuses on French wines but incorporates some great New World wines.

*If you require an outside table, please add a note to your booking request and we will do our best to accommodate, although we cannot guarantee this.

    Booking for 11:30 am Sunday morning. Only serving brunch, which isn't normally an issue, but the brunch menu offerings were a ridiculously small selection. A couple of actual mains and then a bunch of sides. Also, no one stated that there would ONLY be brunch on offer at the time of booking or confirmation (spoke with someone on the phone for confirmation). The waiter, while genuinely nice, seemed completely lost. We decided to wait until 12:00 for the lunch menu, and still had to ask a couple of times to see the lunch menu so we could order when able. The roast sirloin and fish and chips were great, but the pork was very dry. It wasn't very busy but seemed utter chaos. The other tables around us were having issues getting anyone over to place orders or ask for additional items (even had to ask for salt and pepper, not already on the tables). We go there often enough, and it's normally very good. This was hopefully just an off day for everyone. Will definitely go back. Suggest though that if they're only serving brunch until 12:00 that there should be more on offer. The Summerhouse brunch menu puts this one to shame.
