“Real Scottish food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Enjoyed the meal so much we came back with friends the following night.

Yes it does get busy so best to book if possible. Sample a few single malts if you have to wait for your meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the traditional music session on Thursday nights.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff.

“Good food, make sure to book. Live music.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The food was very nice. I had the seafood special which was excellent and my husband had breaded scallops which were nice, although he did think the portion was a little small.
We didn't book and had to wait nearly an hour for a table when we turned up at 7 on a Thursday night - so book!
There was a good selection of whiskys to finish the night whilst we listened to the excellent live music.

“Good food, usually good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Have eaten here several times and can recommend the well presented, well cooked food. Service is generally good with friendly staff. They lost our order on one occasion meaning a lengthy wait but discounted the drinks on the bill to compensate. Certainly on our list of good places to eat in Inverness.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

A wonderful selection of local food and whisky. It was quite busy so the service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait.
