Having come with friends to celebrate a 50th Birthday we visited this place as it advertised real ale. The 'Happy Chappy' was well kept. We all ordered food and were not disappointed . The Angus beef burgers were very tasty and good value for money especially on the 2 for £11.95 option. The views from the window area are very... More

Terrible seating. Chair with a broken back kept tilting in whenever anyone leant on it, which was often. Seriously needs refurbishment. Crammed in with lots of people. Chicken was deep fried from frozen and had a metallic taste. Gravy was nothing more than flavourless lubricant. Chips were a bit underdone but tasty at least, Plates too small for the portions...

Spend 4 nights in the area and had Fish and Chips 3 times. This was not the largest portion but definately the most tasty fish and best batter. Only 8.50.

I have been coming here since ending the Great Glen Way at the Castle in 2005, realised then that this restaurant offers unparalleled views to the castle and down to the river Ness, the last visit just prior to Halloween 2014 proved every bit as fulfilling as all previous visits. My good lady and I had the gammon and venison... More

What a lovely place, with tremendous staff, but needing to take better care of the food! The food used to be so amazing. Seems to be cheap & cheerful.

Been visiting for years. You cant get better or more friendly staff and the food is very nice with good portion sizes. The prices however are too expensive.
