The Friars Shot opened its doors over 100 years ago, and was named after the Dominican Friars who cast or "shot" their fishing nets across the River Ness. Subsequently called the Black Bull, and more recently Waterfront. Devastated by a kitchen fire in December 2011, the Waterfront now serves what many have described as the best value pub grub in Inverness. One of the offerings - "The Highland Tapas" allows you to try all of the local delicacies. Tucked at the end of Huntly Street close to the A82 Bridge over the River Ness it can be reached by the pedestrian suspension footbridge from town and is worth the walk, just for the view upstream, and for that strange sensation! Vehicular access also, but the one way system outside the pub may defeat you! Only one hand pump offering well kept Cairngorm ales - normally Santa's Sledgehammer around Xmas time.
