Better quality wanted

It was our first night in Invernes, so we just dropped in here. Staff was polite, but bad organised. Soup was very good, but the bread was not fresh. Main course was good and very tasty. Price was much too high for what they serve. Overall a negative experience!

Everything was crappy. Looks like it would be good from the outside of the restaurant, but it wasn't. We just wanted a good lunch, nothing fancy. All I can say is it was not good and not enjoyable. Just don't go

It I had read the reviews before dining here, we probably would not have gone. However, we had a very enjoyable lunch with beer and wine. The waiter was pleasant. the steaks were perfectly cooked, and we even had dessert, which we don't usually eat. All-in-all very good. Also one of the best ladies' I have been to. Clean and... More

have been there once with my partner for a dinner, food was good, nicely prepared and served on the plate, service was pretty good except the time when I have to wait like 15 minutes to pay with the card and finally paid by the bar... at least 4 waiters on the floor chatting anyway... prices are mad for me...

Nice setting nice staff, empty restaurant but sat in the corner. Starters wet our appetite but the mains were tasteless and frankly left us with the view never to return

Too many tables put together, the food wasn't up to expectations. My venison was actually ok but wife's Fillet steak wasn't a fillet and chips were very poor only ate 1/2. tried a sticky toffee pudding this was solid and was sent back not a sponge like texture at all

I'm not going to waste my time by writing all the bad things about this place in detail. Everything that people have written before me is true (apart from the positive things). I rarely complain about a place unless I truly feel it's justified so to summarise: Awful customer service Terrible food (you can probably cook better at home) The... More

Where can I start? My friend and I decided to try Ash for a late lunch the other afternoon. Never have I felt so much disappointment in a restaurant. My starter (chicken liver pate served with ciabatta bread and a salad) was shocking. The pate was average, but I've had better from Tesco's finest range. The bread was hard at... More

Decided to come here for lunch with a friend as the menu outside appeared very good value with lots of choice. The first thing we noticed was that every single member of staff was Polish and were whispering away to each other in Polish which we found quite rude. We were then shown to our table. All the tables are... More

My second experience of this restaurant was not good. My friend and I both thought the customer service wasn't good and we got burnt puddings which we returned and the second pudding came back burnt and the waiter did not acknowledge this. I will NOT be returning!
