Super grub served by friendly staff. Prices were very moderate and there was a good atmosphere. Little walk out of the centre of town but near our B&B (and many other B&Bs).

The Waterfront is a great pub and frequented by locals and tourists. We unfortunately did not have reservations the first night but did reservations for the next night. Well worth the wait. The décor is what you would expect in a Scottish pub. Fairly loud...More

Thank you for the lovely review. We do serve gluten free meals. We also have real ale but this would not be gluten free. We look forward to welcoming your daughter to the Waterfront.
