We were staying close by and referred by a local. It was a great spot to spend the night. Live music was the highlight for us but the food was delicious. My daughter like the haggis on her steak.

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.
