The Gravel Pit Brasserie & Bar is situated in The Waterfront Hotel with mouthwatering views over the east lake to accompany our fantastic menu.

This site was once a large marsh, fed by the River Great Ouse, but in the 1950s gravel extraction created a series of small lakes and pools which survives today. The gravel was mainly used in road and industrial construction, but today the old gravel pits are home to an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna; a magical place for all of us to enjoy.

Our restaurant is open 7 days a week, from 7am - 11pm, with last food orders at 9pm.

    Lovely setting and really delicious and well presented food. Staff very friendly but service runs slowly, there were less than 10 customers including ourselves in the restaurant, but it took a long time to have our order taken and then both drinks and food to arrive.

    Following a visit to the Spa, we had dinner in the restaurant. We were given a lovely table near the window so we could look out at the lake. The menu selection was very good and catered well for my daughter who is gluten free. Service was exceptional and we will definitely be back.

    Excellent setting, staff were all attentive, food quality was good. Choice of menu disappointing, especially for Sunday lunchtime but I guess we knew that before we arrived.

    Chicken was over cooked. Very poor choice for gluten free food. This place has the potential to be very good but missed the boat with the quality of the meals.

    The restaurant setting was nice and the service was very good but the food was disappointing and expensive. The food wasn't hot and I don't even think the chicken was freshly cooked and rather just warmed up. We paid £131 for 2 people for starters and main and 1 bottle of wine and an automatic 12.5% service charge was added to the bill. I'd say it was like a pub meal not a brasserie and therefore it should have cost around half that in my opinion

    Staying in the hotel we thought we would be lazy & eat in the restaurant. The 5 of us have different dietary requirements, and there was something for everyone, although it would be nice to have a couple more veggie options on the menu.
