Came Saturday night to hear live music and was not disappointed. Many draft beers to choose from. Didn't eat here, just drank. Asked locals about the upcoming referendum and got an earful, deepened my cross-cultural experience. And this is why we travel. This pub is right on Bridge St. just steps away from the river and you can't get more... More

Fantastic place to hear live music and get good service at the bar while in town in Inverness. It's centrally located, close to the river, and it's open late. Best of all, there is live music with traditional tunes - even on a Monday night! I was pleased that Strongbow was on tap and I really enjoyed myself. I would... More

This is my favourite pub in inverness, not only is it very friendly, it always had good techdar music on the go! Atmosphere is great especially when there are sports on. Drink is competitively priced. Staff are friendly. It's fairly small but i think that adds to the atmosphere!

Went here a few nights over the weekend.Music was good...but the smell from the toilets was disgusting,ladies sinks were choked with toilet paper,maybe if the hand dryer was replaced,this would not happen,or,if they were checked and cleaned more often. There does seem to be a plumbing problem, as a few local people mentioned this.

brilliant bar in the heart of inverness with live music nearly every day sometimes twice a day, great for tourists in the summer for the weekend ceilidhs in the early evening on Saturdays and sundays, very friendly locals and friendly bar staff, very lively and worth the visit for the ceilidhs alone

Hubbie + I visited yesterday for lunch. Unfortunately they are in the process of making menu changes, so the choice was a little limited however we still had a lovely lunch at a more than reasonable cost. Interesting pub - oldest in Inverness, some nice 'old' touches but also up to date with message screens, live music etc. Even a... More

The Gellions is the place to go if you are looking for a great evening of great music, friendly staff & a fantastic friendly bunch of regulars. We could not have been made more welcome. The night was made complete by having Schehalloin band playing there brilliant range of music & song. Cant wait for our next visit.

This is the oldest pub in Inverness but you wouldn't guess that from the inside. Great service and live music made for an excellent evenings entertainment prior to going for a bite to eat at Jimmy Chung's.
