The food was delicious (Try the specials!), the staff very attentive and the atmosphere great for a romantic dinner. I would recommend making a reservation, even during the week. The view of Loch Ness was fantastic!

My husband and I dropped by for a meal without a booking, early on Sunday evening during our stay in this area. The restaurant was obviously busy and very popular but the service was very efficient and welcoming. Unfortunately most of the items on the 'Specials Board' were no longer available - a sign of their success or inadequate planning??... More

I went here with my family in August and the meal was wonderful. We hadn't booked but they found space for us in the bar which was great although we did feel a little forgotten about at times. The female waitresses were great and helpful and friendly. The meal was a little bit expensive as there are five of us... More

We love this place. We've been often but for Sunday Lunch this time. As usual it was busy but they are so organised & efficient that you don't wait long. The food is truly exceptional & served quickly. Really lovely staff too. Dog friendly in bar area. Ticks every single box!

Visited the Dores inn with some colleagues from work. The service was good and the food was well presented and very tasty no fault there. My only quibble was with the waiter. He seemed to be on a sales drive. The fact that some of our party skipped the starter and avoided the wine menu seemed to mean he pushed... More

Another great lunch at the Dores Inn. We went for the roast pork which came with the usual accompaniments - roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, apple sauce, gravy etc. The meat was excellent as was everything else. We also had the wine of the month which is so good - Tarangi Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Just a great way to... More

We have been going to the Dores Inn for years, every time we are in the Inverness area, and have only been disappointed with the food once and that was put right straight away and we weren't charged for the meal. We went there this week and it was terrific once again. We would really like to give it five... More

I feel terrible writing this review as I have heard so many good things about The Dores Inn, however I feel I must have my say. My sister-in-law and her youngest son were visiting us from London and we wanted to go somewhere nice for Sunday lunch and so we all drove the 50 mile round trip from Strathpeffer to... More

We went here for an evening meal on a Thursday following the recommendations left by other guests in our holiday cottage. Service was quick and friendly, the food was very tasty (the rib of beef was particularly impressive) and the view over Loch Ness was stunning. We did book, but I don't think there would have been a problem if... More
