I ate here recently with my husband and 8 friends. The entire table ordered fish and chips and beer, and we were not disappointed. The fish was well prepared, crispy, and was served wrapped in paper. The staff is prepared for large parties, and they were polite, efficient, and welcoming to visitors. There also appeared to be a lot of... More

Found this restaurant to be good value for money, meals were excellent (stayed in area for 3 nights and ate here every night). Staff extremely friendly, brilliant night Thursday when Scottish Folk Group performing. Would highly recommend this restaurant, would be advantageous to book.

We eat dinner at the Pub on 2 occasions 31st Aug & 3rd Sept 2014. on both occasions the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. I noticed that there were a couple of large groups of local people eating which I always think is a good sign. Our experience was a good one and I recommend this... More

A very good standard of food at the Waterfront and a good selection on the menu - specials every day also. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Booking advised - we went on a Weds night and only just got a table.

This pub was recommended to us by our hosts at a near by B&B and it was so good the first night we made a booking there and then for the second night of our stay. The staff were so friendly (especially the young lady who mainly served our table) and the food was absolutely amazing. Next time I'm in... More

We visited for Sunday Lunch and agree with other reviewers that standards are falling. The Lunch was very average at best. We both ordered Soup which was meant to be Lentil& Ham. It was tasteless. Croutons were provided but had been deep fried and were awful. We then both ordered Roast Beef. The Roast Potatoes again had been deep fried... More

We were glad we booked as even at 7 pm the pub was very busy. We enjoyed a lovely starter of brie and grape salad. My husband had posh fish and chips and I had the salmon. Both very tasty. Only thing I would say is chef tries too hard with presentation. I had a cold cray fish across my... More
