Decent food and atmosphere, ho-hum service

The food and atmosphere were nice, but the service was indifferent. If you're not in a hurry, the desserts are worth the wait.

Food was good for the price and there was a good variety - they also do excellent offers for more than one lunch course. Puddings were absolutely amazing - definitely the best thing going for the place. Staff were pleasant. The place was very busy for lunch time. Ash looked very nice on the inside and had a high level... More

The restaurant looked nice and the food was average but the service was terrible, we waited 30mins between courses and a lot of people in the restaurant had problems with orders, either not getting there order at all or waiting too long, none of the meals came at the same time, which meant someone had finished before the others had...

we went for an early dinner with no table booking; they found us a table very quickly, the waitress was very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed 2 courses both of which we enjoyed, the steak was beautiful, one of the best I have tasted when eating out.

This place was right in the middle of the shopping area, so we decided to give it a try. I think there must be a hotel connected to it. Regardless, we ordered paninis, mine was a Indian chicken and my husband's was a club type sandwich. Neither was remarkable. There were only a few people in the restaurant. We had... More

My wife and I stayed at The Royal Highland Hotel so decided to eat in the hotel restaurant the first night after we arrived. The wait staff seemed disorganized and poorly trained right from the start of the meal. The food was good, so we decided to give them a second chance the next night - new waiters, same result....

Food was so-so..nothing special. Waiting for about 45minutes for meals to coming. That was considered lucky because guess sitting next to us came earlier than us and when we were finishing our meals, their meals just came in. Wouldn't recommend it.

I'm a sucker for railway hotels. In general it can be hard to find a good railway hotel and restaurant in the UK, but Inverness is a delightful exception. I had dinner and breakfast at Ash. Their prix fixe "lunch/early dinner" menu provides great value for money with 2- and 3-course meals. A single course is only 70p cheaper than... More

During my recent visit to the restaurant there was nothing bad about the experience, but there was nothing that stood out. Just average. The food was okay and the service was fine, with quiet a bit of room for improvement. There are many better food options in Inverness.
