We welcome group bookings and private functions for up to 75 people and would be delighted to discuss your requirements either face to face or on the phone.


At The Waterside we pride ourselves on tailoring our service to suit your requirements.

Our function room in the restaurant can be hired at very reasonable rates. For certain events including charitable functions we would be happy to offer the room free to hire with prior arrangements; in this case, we would ask you to pay for the catering you require.
Our offerings have included buffets and dining or during the warmer months our delightful terrace and outside area overlooking the Broads can provide an ideal venue for drinks receptions.

Our magical setting overlooking the Broads makes us the perfect venue for all sorts of occasions:

• Birthdays and anniversaries
• Funeral wakes
• Small wedding receptions
For larger bookings and weddings, please visit our sister business, The Boathouse, Ormesby Broad – Norfolk’s new wedding and function venue. Here we can cater for 150 people for wedding ceremonies/wedding breakfasts and 250 for evening receptions and functions.
