Recommended by the host of the BnB. Was a good choice for a single diner. Food was good and a wide range of choices. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, it was nearly full early in the evening, so would go early or make a booking.

Just by chance, we ate there the first night in Scotland. The food, service and atmosphere was so good, that after walking around Inverness and looking at all the Lonely Planet recommendations, we decided to eat there again. Once again, everything was as good as before. We ate there a third time after our 6 day walk through Glen Affric.... More

Recommended by the B&B I was staying at and I'm glad it was. It was suggested I go early as if can be quite busy and at 6pm it was packed, people were being turned away. I guess that was the advantage of being a solo traveller. Enjoyed a pint and the steak & ale pie, I just couldn't fit... More

We were late for food service but the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Our meal was excellent - looked amazing, tasted amazing - best night out so far. An absolute gem. We just wished we'd known about this place sooner. Had it not been our last night in Scotland we would've stayed later and enjoyed the music.

This was one of our best meals in Scotland. This is a neighborhood tavern with great service and great food. Loved the vibe.

Drink prices on the board at the side of the bar differ from the till, by quite a bit, I pointed this out to one of the staff members who then went to the other barman and had a whispering season after that I got a heavy duty cold shoulder. Shame as apart from this it seems quite a nice... More
