Booking Needed. We had amazing food for all three courses, especially the puddings. Both our food and drinks cames qucikly and all the staff were very friendly. It was a bit expensive, but I would definitely go back again

The a la carte menu provides even the most fussy eaters with a good selection of meat and fish dishes. Our meals were served promptly, efficiently... More

My partner and I booked a table for the one night we were staying in Inverness.

We had a delicious high tea, preceded by toast, butter and jam, and followed by a lovely selection of baking including a warm scone with cream and jam. The staff were attentive and... More
