My partner and I were walking around Inverness and came across the Castle Tavern, the pub was packed. They do offer a large selection of beers, we enjoyed a great meal there, the chicken burger portion is huge and my partner loved the sticky toffee pudding!!! The service was very friendly and even although they were very busy nothing seemed... More

Had dinner twice at this pub especially because I found the haggis to be excellent. The angus burger was very good as well. The draft beer selection is good and it seems that some of the draft beers change daily. We found the tavern crowded both times and were lucky to get a table available; the servers have to accommodate... More

The service was slow, my burger was overcooked, the beer selection was nominal at best. The view of Inverness Castle was the true saving grace of this place.

As the title suggests, this is a really nice little pub ( though not for the claustrophobic). Always very busy. We've eaten here 4 or 5 times. Initially, the food was adequate but it's been deteriorating more recently to the extent that we're not sure we'll eat here again. To give an example : - our most recent meal was... More

We went here having rented accommodation across the street and having read the reviews. We booked a table for dinner as soon as we came in, then settled into a few pre dinner drinks outside and enjoyed the malt of the month. Up for dinner and all the staff were so friendly and helpful it was like dealing with old... More

This place serves good food, but from 6 pm on it gets very crowded with people who are there for meeting others and having drinks and perhaps dinner. It was hard to get through or by all the people on the patio, the only way to get in or out. Could be fun!

The food here is mediocre at best, we went as a group and tried quite a few of the lunch specials. Everything was okay but it was poor quality and we all felt a bit ill afterward. The view is great and they have interesting beers on tap. Good pub for drinking but eat somewhere else.

We went there last June. The pub/restaurant are just opposite the Castle. The ground floor you may find the pub, upstairs the restaurant. Once seated, we were provided with the menu and the waitress was very helpful and friendly, even was patient enough to describe provide information on the beer they had available since I was not familiar with them....
