Popped in to The Waterfront early evening for a bite to eat and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of the food. Better than usual "pub grub" and reasonably priced. Cosy surroundings and friendly staff. I would go back.

Came across this bar as it was just next to our bnb. Loved the food - generous portions and very tasty. The dessert was great too. There was live music being played which was lovely to listen to. Highly recommend visiting this one.

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.
