Stopped here for a late lunch so only wanted something light to eat before dinner. Me and my friend both chose the soup I had tomato and basil, it came with fresh bread and was delicious. You could tell it was homemade and it was really filling. We both shared the Black Forest cheesecake which tasted amazing, again homemade. We... More

I just love this place - nice setting, cosy 'local' and convenient for the city centre. Lunch was lovely I just had a brie and onion ciabatta but my friend had steak... lots os great trimmings but the meat didn't look amazing! Nice staff xxx

Been there after reading tripadvisors recommendation. We were truly disappointed. Pub was packed (mainly Spanish and American Tourists) and the burger did not come exactly from the grill, it came from the freezer, the fries as well (still on our plates). Sad, but true. However, the beer was quite alright.

Having read all the reviews on the Castle Tavern before our trip to Inverness we were expecting great things. To find ourselves in a slightly rundown room above a bar was a bit of a surprise. The waiter appeared to have a bit of a grudge against us from the start, and whilst he was not openly rude, he certainly... More

While we have visited the Castle Tavern for a drink a few times over the last year, we hadn't actually eaten there for ages. We we pleasantly surprised by the innovative menu, and were delighted with our meal. The baked cod loin I ordered was perfect, and the freshest fish I have eaten since catching fish myself! My husband had... More

We've visited couple times and always enjoyed it. Love the location and the seats out side. Food is ok... 'Pub food' but I don't mind it from time to time when having a pint.

went here on the back of TA reviews. Was alright. No bouncers on the door, which seems to be a novelty in Inverness of a Friday night. Pie was good, veg a bit ordinary, beer range featured a couple of good locals. Could do with some heating upstairs.
