Very disappointed. Waitress was extremely inattentive - she appeared to have forgotten about us on numerous occasions. I'm not a 'silver-service' type of person, and would not want to be pestered during a visit; however, the lack of attention was extreme for a hospitality venue. Steer clear of Wednesday lunchtimes if you can. Visited The Weyside on 2018-01-31

Many thanks for looking after us SO well yesterday for our lunch at the Weyside! We came with 3 small doggies and a couple of fleece blankets and waterbowls were already set up at our lovely table. The service was very friendly and professional and most important of all the lunch was delicious too. On the plus side the location is idyllic on a small river with a lovely park on the other side to let the doggies run off some steam after the lunch. Thank you so much to the team. It was our first of hopefully many more visits in the future! Visited The Weyside on 2018-01-30

Very poor food, practically a third of the menu outside of a roast was off the menu owing to supplier issue. Being a Sunday, you would think that this would have been resolved. Had the belly pork for starters and there was more fat than meat and very burnt around edges with some shop bought apple sauce. Had the Roast Chicken which was overcooked, no cabbage served and gravy spilling over the sides and split by the waiting staff. This place used to have such good food at the weekends, I would give it a miss and go the March Hare instead. Visited The Weyside on 2018-01-28

We visited the Weyside for lunch recently. We raked for and got a table overlooking the river which we got. As a bonus we were also right beside the wood burner which was awesom as it was a cold wet day outside.. our meals were good. Cooked well and satisfying with good portion sizes. We enjoyed a long lunch and weren’t hastled to move on from the table. I’d certainly recommend The Weyside for a group lunch or dinner. Visited The Weyside on 2018-01-27

I booked for a party of 20 for Sunday lunch to celebrate my birthday. It’s a lovely location especially in summer and the menu has always been good. This was not reflected in their Sunday lunch. We were asked to pre order as it was a large group but this was a disaster from start to finish. None of my guests were able to pre-order as they closed the pre-order booking 4 days prior to the event. I had guests who had dietary requirements who had to contact Weyside and were told it would be better to order on the day. My guests were rushed to order even though they arrived early as they could not pre-order. The tables were set out badly that made it difficult to talk to everyone and we had to ask for the music to be turned off. The food which on previous experience had been good, was bland and tasteless. I was glad we had birthday cake so didn’t have to worry about desert. Extremely disappointed given my previous experience at the Weyside. Not sure if this is down to new management but not the experience I had hoped for. Maybe this will just be a venue for summer occasions where the view is spectacular and the food is much better. Visited The Weyside on 2017-11-19

Food was fine but nothing special; I had the squash salad which came with large croutons and there was far more bread than squash which was disappointing. The service was not great, very slow - we were left for a long period before ordering and again with the desert menus, and it was hard to get the server’s attention. In the end we ordered our bill with desert as it was getting frustrating! It wasn’t even busy. The noise levels also make for difficult conversation - the room is very echoey and loud music doesn’t help, it would only take a few improvements to make this so much better.

There were only 3 in our party who enjoyed their meal. Complaints....cold food,red beef even when returned to the kitchen, very tough steak,tough lumps of lamb not enough veg. Puddings were passable. I will add though the waitress in charge of our group was excellent. We will not be returning next year. Visited The Weyside on 2017-10-22

Fabulous venue-Love the boat house outside, love the general feel but I was a little disappointed with the hour wait on food and food did come out cold.

Awful meal. Took over 50 mins for some of the food to appear after being chased. Other people's food arrived before ours and they ordered after us. Meals didn't arrive together and we had to chase up one order by which point others had finished their food. Burger portions are small for £13. Sausages and bubble & squeak was disappointing, more watery mash with carrots! Nobody cleared the plates or let us know of the delay. Poor service and food. Visited The Weyside on 2017-10-07

We had an amazing time at the Weyside. We arrived and left by canal boat. There were delicious burgers and veggie burgers waiting for us when we arrived and the pub's management - Andy & Ana - were brilliant at accommodating a party of almost 45 people as well as a band. I can't recommend this pub and it's staff highly enough Visited The Weyside on 2017-09-30

We were looking for somewhere to take our daughter out for Sunday lunch as she has just started Uni that also allowed dogs and The Weyside came up on Google.

Disappointing, lunch menu limited due to things not available, burgers only available from the shack but as our booking was at 12 we couldn't order burgers as the shack was accomdating a private party till 1.30. Drinks order was incorrect, it was corrected but we were charged for the wrong order to, this was after asking removed from bill. Sauces requested to accompany our meals were not bought until after we had finished meals despite asking waitress twice. The normal warm and welcoming Weyside that we have visited and enjoyed many times was lacking the warm atmosphere previously experienced. I have emailed directly as well.

We have our wedding drinks party in The Weyside on Saturday the 9th of September and I must say was a lovely place with friendly staff. We stayed on the terrace outside on the first part of the evening and felt great. The mini burgers that we pre-order were really tasty as all the guest admitted. Ana Pragana, the Booking Manager help us with all the planning. Thank you so much, Ana & Boby Visited The Weyside on 2017-09-09

All good, service a little slow, food arrived exactly one hour after ordering. We were a table of 8, a lot of chatting and catching up, time wasn't so much of an issue, but the food was only warm not hot, tasted good, beef was excellent.

Poor food. Fish and chips were less than to be desired. Fish batter was soft. Steak was asked to be cooked rare and came well done. Also restaurant was completely out of ketchup. I was offered dregs in the bottle. Enough to cover a chip. Such a shame and a waste of £49. Won't be recommending to others. Visited The Weyside on 2017-08-28

From making the group booking a couple of weeks prior to attending to the service we received on the day - the staff were most helpful. They were very accomadating for our puppy and fresh water and treats were bought for her. She was made to feel most welcome. The food was excellent, although the children were not overally keen on the pasta dish they were served. Fortunately for us we were not in any real rush, but as the pub got more popular it was a longer wait for puddings or to see any member of staff due to the volume of people. Just part of being a popular restaurant. We would all happily attend the weyside again. Thank you for having us! Visited The Weyside on 2017-08-25

Despite being August evening, it was a very cold evening. We didn't need the windows open so we closed those. We asked for the fan to be turned off and it was. The entry door though stubbornly remained opened (always opened again after we closed it). We were all freezing. Forewent pudding to have a coffee to warm me up and we left earlier than we would have done. Food was nice - but had to wait for chips which waitress never remembered (why don't they write orders down these days?). Sitting by window saw a large rat outside run across decking and back!!!! But the good news - is they sell Ranmore beer which was a treat. Visited The Weyside on 2017-08-19

The location and surrounds at the Weyside are wonderful and have such great potential. I do feel very sad though when the quality of staffing just lets the place down. I've been to eat there a number of times and it really is hit and miss as to whether the staff on duty are working to the standards one would expect at such an establishment. On the occasion they fell very short. Once being shown to our table I ended up having to go and find someone to come and take our order (after more than 10mins...... waiting even for drinks). Food took a long time to come and when delivered there was no mention of asking if we'd like any additional condiments or sauces (with chips!)....... very basic stuff missed. I ended up going to find another member of staff to ask for ketchup?:-( Really it's all standards that any staff should know, but even if they don't, they should be taught how to serve meals. Very disappointed on this occasion. Such a shame as the place really could be so much better....... Visited The Weyside on 2017-08-19

The decor and ambience was lovely. However, the menu was far too limited - I think there was a choice of around six items on the main menu.

Upon arrival, despite having booked a table and received an email confirmation, the waitress was unable to find our booking. She left us standing in the lobby for 10 minutes while she looked, so eventually we seated ourselves at the bar. Finally the waitress found our table. It was our son's 16th birthday, so we ordered Prosecco, which was unceremoniously plonked on our table and it was warm! We mentioned this tonth e waiter who said there were no cold bottles! We asked for an ice bucket, but after 15 minutes it was still not cold so we mentioned this again and this time received an apology and a new (cold) bottle in a Pimms jug filled with ice and salt. Upon booking, we had mentioned that it was our son's birthday, but no mention of this was made by any of the waiting staff. We ordered from both the a la carte and the burger shack, but the a large carte meals.came 20 minutes before the burger shack dishes. All in all an overpriced, average pub meal with second-rate service. A lovely venue to look at, but we will not be returning. Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-15

Booked a table of 12 and arrived to find 2 tables made up with cutlery and glasses for 12 people inside but our table was outside in the garden and not laid and consisted of tables and sofas which was quite difficult for my elderly grandparents to sit at. This was disappointing however on request the waitress organised for a table to be made up for us inside. Though I was unimpressed with the first efforts the meal was delicious and the staff very helpful. Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-12

The service was very very slow, I had to keep going to the bar if I wanted anything. I requested scotch eggs when I booked and was promised them on the day, yet when I asked for them on the day, you didn't have any. Came for a celebration but was just very disappointed overall with lunch. Can't see myself or my party coming back in a hurry. Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-11

Great evening - not quite sure we had to move from the lower deck area at 10.30pm. Party platters were good, but not quite 5*. Phoebe (with the plaits) was an excellent host. Thanks Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-06

Lovely table booked by the team. However the pub is too big now and the staff struggled to deal with the volume of people on a warm Friday night. Queues were very long and there were issues in the burger shack, with both customers and the staff themselves. A nice pub but I would not go again at peak times as I struggled to get served and could not in the end order food. Disappointing. Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-07

I had booked a table for 7pm but we were not allowed to order our food until 7.40pm because of a large party. Once we had all ordered we had to wait a further 45 minutes for our food to arrive and one of my friends had to wait an hour for hers and we had all finished our food by the time hers had arrived. My friends burger also wasn't the same quality as the burgers we had just had. She didn't have a brioche bun as stated on the menu and her burger wasn't as good as the ones we had had. We also got asked to move by a member of staff because apparently somebody else had booked our table, even though I had reserved it a week in advance and it had my name on the table and we had already been sat at the table for 2 hours by this point. We then felt uncomfortable and decided to leave. It's a shame because the pub is lovely and the food was good on the whole. Visited The Weyside on 2017-07-06

We booked the Weyside on the recommendation of Farncombe Boat House. While the staff were very nice, the food was pretty bad. By 'Double cooked chips' I think they meant 'cooked once, then frozen by McCain, then cooked from frozen by us'. A cheese sandwich (the most basic of requests you would have thought) was really stingy with the cheese and took half an hour to come - the last item from several we ordered. There is also a burger shack there. I asked on the way in how they cooked them, wondering if they would come a little pink in the middle. A nod. 'Medium' said the guy. They arrived overdone. My brother had to go back to ask for the advertised salad and pickles that were missing from his veggie burger. At £9 (and £4 for chips) for mine, I would rather have had a McDonalds, even though I stopped eating them years ago. The Weyside is a great location for a drink by the river, but the food is almost laughably bad. Youngs pubs in London are generally pretty reliable, but whichever area manager covers this one needs to visit anonymously. He or she will want to sack the kitchen staff or re-educate them to ensure a bit of care is put into providing food that people might come back for. Needless to say, we won't be.

Dear Sir/ Madam, I am writing to complain about the unacceptable experience that I received in your restaurant, The Weyside on Monday 5th June when we were intending to have a lovely a 30th Birthday celebration for a colleague. With a background in Marketing for a 3 Star Michelin restaurant, it was purely embarrassing some of the events in which we experienced today in your property. I reserved a table on Friday 2nd June for 5 people and when we arrived today, just after 12pm we were told we could choose our table – due to how quiet the restaurant was. We waited for around 20 minutes until we ordered and the waitress said “yes you can order now, the kitchen is now open” – this puzzled me as you take bookings from 12pm but don’t state you can’t order until after 12:30pm? Upon order we were told that the buttermilk chicken salad wasn’t available to order and that a sandwich menu was available either – which limited choice for a quick lunchtime bite to eat. The waitress took orders by marking my menu in black dots in front of me, which I thought was really unprofessional. Our starters arrived staggered as they’d forgotten the 2 smoked salmon we ordered. After 30 minutes we still hadn’t received our mains until the waitress came out again to say “sorry more bad news, we have no sweet potato tartlets left can you choose something else”. This left 2 of us rushed and puzzled to look at the menu again (one of which is a vegetarian and so had to order a starter due to other vegetarian option). This then delayed our mains by an hour! I ordered pea and cauliflower soup which was cold and another salmon starter which stated it came with sourdough – I had to remind the waitress of this and I was given white toast – not sourdough 15 minutes after. Overall the service, food and setting was really disappointing. After recommendation from colleagues in work, we were hoping for what you call on your website ‘the best of British classics’ for a lovely celebration, of which turned out to be a 2 hour sour experience and £80 less off. I hope that in the future you will take these points on board in order to prevent them from happening again, and I’m afraid to say that you lost 5 potential customers and future business from one of the largest offices in Guildford. Yours faithfully, Lora Peach Visited The Weyside on 2017-06-05

Firstly the positives. The on-line booking system worked a treat and having arrived we were shown out table by a charming waitress. The table was well sited with excellent views over the river. The service throughout was excellent and the vegetables were well cooked. On the downside, the presentation was in my opinion poor. The roast sirloin that we all orders was curled over on the plate in a very strange and unappealing way. The meat itself was cut very thick, (probably about 1/4 inch thick) and despite being quite tender was difficult to cut. We all requested steak knives to do so more easily. A thick edge of fat was left on the meat which should have been removed prior to serving. It certainly did nothing to enhance the food and cutting it away was a struggle. The meal overall was on the expensive side made worse by my choice of an overpriced glass of red wine. The location and ambiance of The Weyside is first class but I was not very impressed with the meal and will not be in a hurry to return. Visited The Weyside on 2017-05-07

A more limited Sunday menu than at previous visits.

The whole experience was a disaster from start to finish. We were a party of 9. We were seated and our menus were handed to us and drink orders taken. The menus were totally different to what was on the online menu. When asked the waitress she said due to new management the menus had changed. We booked our table on the website and went by what we wanted off the online menu. This was error 1. Next our drinks were bought over and because of such silly glasses (top heavy) 3 of our party got covered in drinks and also a very expensive handbag and contents! Though this was an accident and we didn't pay for any drinks, as you can imagine it's not ideal for customers to be sat wet! When we came round to ordering our meals, I was told that the vegetarian option I asked for (which remember isn't what I wanted in the first place, as the online menu was different) wasn't being served that day which left another option (nutroast) and as someone who doesn't eat nuts you can imagine how that went down. I then bought my concerns to the man in charge who then told me they could supply what I had asked for off the menu. So not sure why the waitress told me it was off the menu. Once food arrived, we had a cold burger arrive with no bacon, once bacon arrived after asking for it, it was very unusual and there was a hair in the chips. Though the other 7 meals people enjoyed. I won't be returning. First and last time unfortunately Visited The Weyside on 2017-04-16

We visited for Sunday lunch. Location is beautiful and enjoyed sitting by the canal before eating. However we had terrible trouble ordering ale - we were drinking Camden Pale Ale from the outside bar which the new girl (not her fault) was struggling to pour pints for us. When we tried to order inside no one seemed to know that this ale was not available inside so there was some confusion and I thought I had ordered the wrong thing when I had not - this resulted in me taking over 15 minutes to return to our table with correct drinks. The roast was not up to standard, beef tough, cabbage cut really think including core - not nice, some roast potato's were not cooked inside. So overall great venue but food and service lacking, not sure we will return for eating. Visited The Weyside on 2017-04-16

We had a very enjoyable lunch, had the most delicious Salmon fish cakes, on a bed of spinach, with a very small portion of Chips and Hispi cabbage.

We often go to The Weyside for dinner and decided to go for Sunday lunch as the weather was amazing. We managed to get a table outside which was great, however, we waited for over an hour for our food and the first dish came out cold and had to be sent back and then it took another 10 minutes for the following dishes to come out. I understand it was very busy and hope we do not have an experience like this again. Visited The Weyside on 2017-04-09
