We had a lovely dinner here and we're really surprised by the range of interesting vegetarian options. The food was really tasty and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

We had lunch at The Waterfront today and I must say we enjoyed it, will be back. We didn't have a starter but asked for steak pie (I had seen it recommended on line). Although it wasn't on the lunch menu, we were told it was not a problem, we could have steak pie. It was excellent, meat was melt-in-the-mouth,... More

My mum and me popped in for lunch on Easter Sunday, surprisingly we got a seat easily, was worried everywhere would be fully booked! They had a fantastic easter menu - 3 course for £15.95. I had the chicken liver pate for starters and Mum had the melon, both delicious, certainly not stingy with the portions. For the main I... More

Staff were welcoming and helpful And their service was good; gave us time to choose and were timely with taking our order then serving the meals. Food was delicious. It was piping hot and really tasty and generous portion size. Atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. I would recommend and would go again.

My family and I were having dinner in this place just for one night in Inverness. Everything was really tasty and we had the opportunity to try the traditional Scottish food. The waiter and waitress were lovely and the the prices were reasonable. Highly recommended!

My wife and I had passed this Pub/Restaurant a couple of times on previous visits to Inverness, on each occasion it looked extremely busy. On this visit we decided to book for Sunday lunch, I'm certainly please we did, the interior is welcoming, the staff were very attentive without being overbearing, The food was absolutely delicious, the roast beef was...

We had a very quick dinner here last night. Waiter was lovely and accomodating although we did not have a booking. I ordered the 'Three Little Pigs,' which was delicious, beautiful creamy mashed potato and beautiful apple cider sauce. However, I was not a fan of the sausage, it lacked seasoning. My partner had the steak ale pie which he... More

I ate here 2 nights on a recent business trip to Inverness. This pub was the closest to my accommodation. Great selection of beers and spirits,but the food here is to die for. I had the fresh salmon one night and the steak and ale pie on my second visit both of which tasted beautiful. Staff are all very friendly... More

Booked a table for 3 for Saturday night, simply because everywhere else was booked, so we ran out of options. We had venison, sea bass and "posh fish and chips". The food was surprisingly good. Extensive menu. Service attentive. Prices very reasonable compared to some other local pubs who think their food is good enough to charge Michelin prices. Will... More
