Visited the Castle Tavern twice this past week whilst in Inverness to compete at MWC2014. Many of the athletes decided to make this their go to place for a pint or dinner, so it was completely packed both times. The staff was fabulous, dealing with a bunch of loud, rowdy, large athletes from around the world. Victoria, especially kept the... More

Persuaded by Tripadvisor reports we visited the Castle Tavern for dinner. Not as good as we'd hoped for though the prices are competitive and the location attractive. Plain unimaginative food. The restaurant upstairs was very busy, mainly American and Irish tourists where we were sat and they were troughing it down! My Breadcrumbed Chicken with Chili dip starter was a... More

This restaurant has good food with friendly staff. Good value for your money. Our B&B host suggested this place as it's where the locals go.

Very good food and reasonable prices. The staff are very helpful and they serve with a smile. The deserts are to die for. They also have a lovely view of the castle from downstairs (outside) and upstairs. I would go again!

What do you need from a tavern? Hearty food and a pint. And on both, the Castle Tavern delivers. The selection was great on the food and the varieties on draft was awesome. Wish we could've tried everything!

A nice little restaurant, with good food and a good choice of beer and ale´s. Not to expensive. Its necessary to book in advance, when they have just a few tables.

Near the centre of Inverness, the Castle serves traditional well cooked pub food in the bar. There's a restaurant upstairs too and a deck out the front. Staff are very friendly. I had beautifully cooked salmon and my partner had a chicken burger. Very tasty!
