The Water's Edge
The saying ‘live life on the edge’ is given an entirely different meaning at riverside restaurant The Water’s Edge. Uninterrupted views of Newark Castle and the River Trent lend to a calm, convivial atmosphere that’s perfect for relaxed, hassle-free drinking and dining with friends and family. Inside, a chic yet rustic style is achieved with well-treated exposed wood, ambient lighting, plush leather Chesterfields and the area’s first indoor waterfall.
Food is kept seasonal and fresh, with a varied menu offering something for everyone. The Edge’s shareable, tapas-style starters of calamari, whitebait and Iberico meats are perfect for keeping hunger at bay on arrival. A typical main-course offering, meanwhile, might include barbecue pulled brisket with skinny fries, barbecue sauce and the Edge’s homemade slaw; classic Lincolnshire sausages with buttery mash and onion gravy; and smoked haddock with pea and spring onion risotto, a poached egg and Hollandaise sauce. There’s also a selection of craft burgers, each topped with flavoursome accoutrements such as melted Stilton and smoked pancetta or tomato, mozzarella and pepperoni, and served in a brioche bun with fries or hand-cut chips, crisp salad and homemade beetroot slaw.
If you still have room for afters, The Water’s Edge’s immensely decadent chocolate garden – combining chocolate brownie, chocolate mousse, ganache, and milk ice cream into a plated work of art – is guaranteed to impress even the most seasoned dessert aficionado.
