The waterfront is a lovely traditional pub on the banks of the river ness about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town. I loved the atmosphere, the splendid river views and the fine real ale on tap. The bar was very clean and service was good.I thought the food was adequate pub food but not on a par with nearby restaurants. I had mussels. It was a small portion, a little chewy and had lots of broken shells. The trench sandwich was not toasted and a little soggy. I'd return for good beer, atmosphere and bar snacks but I'd go elsewhere for a good dining experience.

Lovely meal, well presented and very good value for money. Great service and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely go back. The location is a bonus too, overlooking the river, especially with all the Christmas lights at this time of year.

Excellent food served well...the only drawback is you often have to pay for sides which does mount up! the seafood is great although my brother would have liked more (but he is a huge rugby player!! ) Our waitress was lovely and knowledgeable about the food and they were very accommodating with our party...my mother says she will definitely be back and that is indeed a recommendation given that she is 80 and vocal if she doesn't like something!!

Went here yesterday with friends for Christmas lunch. The menu was varied and adequate. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Service was excellent. And the price was great for a three course lunch plus Chtistmas pies (which we had no room for) and tea or coffee. Very enjoyable in lovely cosy surroundings. Doesn't feel like a pub. Highly recommend.
