Excellent food, service and ambience in this cosy pub right on the shores of Loch Ness. Great menu and such tasty meals in front of lovely log burner stove that is kept well stocked. Don't pass it thinking it is small and insignificant...this place is firmly on the map and should be on everyone's list of Must do's in this... More

My girlfriend and I had recently visited this wee hidden gem for a meal one saturday evening. The food/service was excellent with great value for money. We felt very well looked after thanks to the friendly staff. The restuarant was very clean and looked as if it had a make over. I would 100% recommend having a beef burger for... More

We came back to visit Dores Inn, perfectly located on the shores of Loch Ness, knowing it was under new management and was delighted to discover that the food and service remain impeccable. The staff had only overheard my husband mention something about my birthday to me as we sat down at our table, so when my dessert was brought... More

The bus arrived promptly and took us to the inn. The food and the service was outstanding. After a walk along Dores beach after lunch, we went back to the bar... More

Beautiful spot on Loch Ness and characterful building. Was expecting the food and service to match but it didn't really. Average pub food with slow service perhaps an off day would try again in the summer even just for a drink as it is an amazing location.

Perfect post walk energy food. Great location. The halloumi and olive salad was a highlight but I found the mains (good ol' fish'n'chips and a chicken burger thing) a little more average but still tasty. Good customer service always makes a meal taste better. Thumbs up.
