As a local we eat in the Dores Inn fairly regularly but choose quiet periods! but food apart, what we love most of a all is to have a sunset walk around Dores beach then finish the evening with a pint sitting on the loch side tables where you have probably the most photographed view ever of Loch Ness.

The service at this place is really good. Friendly, cheerful staff. The food is great as well - big servings and fresh and tasty. We came back the next night to try their award winning haggis and didnt regret it! Yums!

We booked a table for four for dinner at the Dores Inn a couple of Fridays ago and once again were really impressed with the quality of food being served. We also managed to get a table beside the fire which was really appreciated. For starters we had mussels in a white wine broth, two soups and a haggis, neeps... More

Stopped for a quick lunch, and took it in the bar rather than the restaurant bit. Cullen skink was excellent and filling, and with a pint of Scapa Special, it was ideal, While we were ther, a lone walker arrived and asked if anything could be served quickly, and she was eating within a few minutes. Plenty more to offer... More

Had dinner with family and friends. The food was excellent The prices very reasonable. Good selection of ales and drinks. Lively atmosphere with a live band in the bar area. Worth a detour if in or around Dores. Would recommend.

We went on Monday afternoon, after driving all round Loch Ness for some reason. Nice wee spot right by the loch. We had the two kids with us, but there was no sign of the kids menu, if there is one. The food is at the higher end for pub food, but it's fantastic quality. I had the cheese burger.... More

Visited for lunch on Monday 7th April and just can't wait to go back. The food was just delicious, the only problem being what to choose. Long time since I've seen such an interesting menu and the actual food more than lived up to the description. The staff were so friendly and made us feel so welcome so, together with... More
