I came here at lunch today and it was such a great atmosphere! Ordered fish and chips while my wife had the mussels, were both excellent and a great size for the price. Staff were quick and friendly, delivering our meals in good time as we were both so hungry after our walk by the Loch! Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I decided to spend our last evening in Inverness in the Dores Inn upon recommendation of the owner of our holiday lodge - and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant was empty when we arrived and we were a little worried we were putting the staff out by asking to eat - but they were SO welcoming and... More

Popped in for tea, food was good, staff friendly and efficient, not dear, comfortable and warm with an excellent specials board (its big, I'm half blind, though the food on it was good too). For a country bereft of good pubs this is one of the better ones. Mind you though a traditional Scottish ambiance was the order of the... More

Had Sunday lunch today. Very good value and great food. Lovely log fire on a cold Highland winter day! Only slight gripe is that some of the food could have been hotter. Will certainly return.

We are here tonight 21/2/15. Meals were great , the staff friendly and welcoming and overall it was well worth coming. If there's a downside, the toilets need updating and heated

Nice gluten free options here which were the reason for us stopping here. The place appeared dated which also is part of its appeal. Staff very friendly and obliging. Place very clean & food is of a good high standard. Only criticism would be limited menu & choice for the teenager pallette.

Had Valentines dinner here. Absolutely delicious food! We had the surf & turf - steak cooked to perfection and so tender. Calamari lightly battered - perfectly cooked. Langoustine was melt in your mouth! Dessert was just as good. If we lived in the area, this would become our local favourite!

Dores inn was heavily recommended by many friends, the cute wee bar was very nice however our meal took over an hour to come, as we were very hungry and no waiter came to say sorry or check up on us I felt very disappointed! When the food arrived it was very good quality just not as good as we'd... More

Had a lovely meal here on the last night of our holiday. We were picked up and dropped off by the complimentary shuttle bus which was a huge bonus! The meal was faultless, all 4 of us had 3 delicious courses, it was hard to choose what to have off such a wonderful menu. A mention must also go to... More
