hidden gem

great little pub/restaurant away from the hub on the other side of the River Ness. Very much worth a visit. Great atmosphere, great food at realistic prices and very friendly staff who are running all over the place but service was spot on.

The food here was good. We had the highland fling which is a full breakfast with haggis and black pudding. It is on the brunch menu. It was very tasty. We then had the tasting plate of puddings. It had three different puddings. It was good as you got to try the different puddings on offer. We would go back.... More

Happily accommodated on a busy night even when we were close to last booking time ( 9:20) The staff quickly sorted out a table to suit us and had a drink in our hand in 5 mins. Simply superb menu with lots of favourites, good portions, good value and all very tasty

Very good meal, service excellent. A reservation is necessary. I had Jacobite chicken with haggis on top. Would definitely have again. Live local folk music on a Thursday night is we worth experiencing.

An absolute gem! Simple but comfortable interior, great food, well chosen wine list and keen young staff. Our experience was nothing but positive - and we found 'The Waterfront' through Tripadvisor! Our 12 year old daughter was made most welcome and at that time in the evening (6.30pm) there were plenty of other youngsters dining. It is a couple of... More

We went for our evening meal and the food was excellent. I would recommend this spot to anyone. Our group had the steak, the lamb, the steak pie, and soup. All were very tasty, interesting, and nicely presented. Well above the expected pub food. There was live music that started at about 8:45 that sounded quite good. Our only disappointment... More

Our BnB " Moyness" booked a table for us,as they said it gets very busy. We found the service was fast and efficient and friendly. There is a specials sheet to choose from or the normal menus. Lamb chops and brown trout were our choices very good honest food at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.
