The Waterfront is a very large pub that faces the marina.
Once inside there was a smart looking lounge to the right,this area was carpeted and had a wood burning stove on the go,the bar was just beyond this area and this area had tall tables and stools and had a stone floor,the largest area was set aside for diners which had views to the marina.
There were 7 real ales on the bar,we tried Blyth Marina bitter which was a very malty beer and went down nicely and Elland Park bitter which was a really nice hoppy beer,the other beers were Blyth Barton Pale Ale,Taylor Landlord,Pedigree,St Austell Tribute and Directors bitter.
The pub was very busy with a mix of diners and drinkers.
The beer was very nice and well kept here but this is not really my sort of pub.

Well described below,I would add that the tables and chairs around the bar area are where drinkers can gather without ordering food,while there is a woodburner to one side which adds a bit of charm.There is a large exterior terrace beyond the dining area with views over the extensive marina.The inane musak would have driven me to distraction had it not been for the quality of the ale,this place fully deserves it's GBG listing .An imaginative selection of real ale and informative bar attendants ,totally unexpected in this modern building.

A detailed and accurate review from Mr Dragon below. The pub is very easy to reach by boat by entering the marina and navigating virtually to the front door where there are visitor moorings.
Although we didn't eat the menu looked interesting and if I was hungry I'd certainly give it a go.
Not a place that invites you settle in for a session as it doesn't have that cosy and intimate ambience but, surprisingly for this sort of venue, the ale range is wide and the quality high.
Regular beers are Pedigree and Waterfront Marina and Barton. Guests on our visit were Brains Rev James, Black Hole Super Nova and Sarah Hughes Surprise with the latter two going down especially well.
An excellent option for a thirsty lunchtime on the canal.
