Good menu, nice staff and nice food. Furniture needs replacing as both table and chairs were falling apart. However we weren't there to eat the furniture so l give it 4 stars.

Staff seem so busy, from the minute you enter, it's like a whirlwind. No time to chat, felt like I was on a conveyor belt. Long, long wait for food, starters took 30 minutes and mains weren't much faster. Food was generally ok, the lamb and couscous was absolutely delicious though. It was expensive and took ages though with only... More

This is a must-visit for anyone near Loch Ness for a holiday. The food is great, with a specials board updated weekly. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The whisky selection also makes for a fine addition to the food and drinks menu. The owner, Adam, was even good enough to drives us from and then back to our... More

The service was excellent, the food was tasty and it had a lovely country pub feel. I was there with my fife and there were a lot of other couples there so it was busy but not noisy. Great place for a quiet cozy meal.

After spending a week in the beautiful surroundings of Loch Ness we had our farewell meal at The Dores Inn. The food was high quality and the hospitality of all the staff superb. We look forward to venturing back in the not too distant future.

The decaor is a bit tired and it looks like your typical country pub, but the other review on here do not lie - the food is great! I can imagine it's an even nicer place to eat when the sun is out and you can go outside :) I had the fish special, which was gorgeous - grilled with... More

This was hands down the best meal my friend and I had our entire Scottish vacation. Delicious, mouth watering, and served with a smile. Location is idyllic and price was right!
