The food philosophy at the Watermark Restaurant is to offer delicious modern dishes with a classical influence, using seasonal ingredients presented with real care, sourced from local suppliers to ensure freshness and quality. The Watermark experience is not to be missed.

While ambling along the driveway I was struck by the beautiful grounds surrounding The Regency Park Hotel. Watermark Restaurant, located inside, is a festival of friendliness, the staff ready to lead you through to either the bar for a pre-meal drink or straight to your table. I was bowled over by the beautiful view of a flowing waterfall from the rear window of this fine eatery. The lighting is superb and the ambience relaxing.

Ordering presented a difficult choice. There is a set menu for £19.50, but I decided that the à la carte option was for me. Studying the starters, I observed that all of the dishes were familiar but had their own exciting twist. After some deliberation, my ultimate choice was the smoked venison and chicken rillette with homemade blackberry and orange jam (£8.50) - a flavoursome and unusual treat for the palate. To follow I found myself stuck between poached lemon sole and fillet of English beef. I eventually ordered the latter, accompanied by Lyonnaise potatoes, mushroom fondue and sticky Madera jus (£18), from the patient waitress and carried on drinking a great Orvieto Classico Secco (£14.95). The beef was special indeed and cooked exactly as requested.

Having dined in several fine establishments over the years, I must stress that Watermark Restaurant is up there with the best; I have no doubt that I will return. This restaurant is the ideal location for celebrating a truly special occasion.
