We stopped here for lunch on our drive south. We had food in the bar, but I think that there is also a more restaurant type section. The food was excellent bar food, with great haggis, and there was also an awesome selection of malt whiskies, over 400 apparently, which unfortunately we were unable to try because of driving. The...

A light dinner of fish chowder, venison pate - both excellent! The place was cheerful and welcoming, close to B&B on the Village Green.

My wife and I went to this Bar/Restaurant for our Anniversary meal on Drumnadrochit on 10 October 2014. We have previously ate here last year and we were please to find that this place had not changed. The staff couldn't be more attentive if they tried and seemed very organised. It was a very friendly and cosy restaurant. I had... More

Starting with the positives, the staff who served us were lovely - despite the food being awful we still left a tip. The whisky and beer menu is quite vast so plenty to choose from. To start with we ordered the grilled goats cheese and roast pepper brushetta. The exterior of the goats cheese was slightly warm but cold in... More

If you like your food and or Malts. This is well worth a visit. The range of whisky is the second best I have ever senn. The staff were great, friendly and very helpful.And not too expensive. What we had i would have expected to pay almost double. Will certainly visit any time im near Drumnadrochit.

Great range of traditional food, with an astonishing choice of Scottish beers, not to mention single malts. Friendly service, well worth reserving, as it gets busy. But you can always while away the wait on the terrace outside, with one of their beers! We ate here on roughly four out of the eight evenings we were in the area.

We had a birthday lunch here to celebrate my 50th and my nieces 16th. The staff and owner were all very polite & very chatty and the food was amazing. The whiskey selection is outstanding and any questions asked were answered even though it was very busy. The owner is lovely & his staff are brilliant. Very good value for... More

We visited the Fiddlers 3 or 4 times over our stay in Drumnadrochit - it was only a 15 minute walk from our holiday cottage. Absolutely lovely staff, fantastic food and a phenomenal selection of ~500 whiskys. My wife, who isn't a whisky in the slightest, loved the food and always found a good glass of wine to go with...
