We'd gone along the road towards Forres planning to have a walk beside Loch Ness and a bowl of soup and a roll in a local pub. For a February Sunday morning the weather was amazing as was the walk through the woods along Dores Beach. We hadn't read the reviews of the Dores Inn so were surprised how busy... More

Lost and impromptu visit, picked following trip advisor rating. Not disappointed, fitted us in without a booking which was lucky as they were busy. Friendly, accommodating staff. Food amazing! So worth a trip, thumbs up.

We were staying at nearby Aldourie and experienced a fantastic meal here last Friday, enjoying it so much, we made a further reservation for Sunday. The menu was interesting, service good and the food was excellent. The pick up & drop off facility was extremely helpful as we didn't have a car with the drivers very friendly and punctual. Very...

The chunky chips are amazing, crispy and like mash potato inside, very good. The steak I had was a ribeye rare with garlic herb butter, amazing, very tender, couldn't have been better. The vanilla ice cream was honestly the best I've had in a long time also, it wasn't on the menu that day but they got me some anyway.... More

Ate here as a party of six in February. Menu is quite limited, particularly in relation to desserts. I'm dairy and gluten free and chef was accommodating, which was appreciated. Some of the portions were big, some not quite so big, could do with more consistency in portion size. One of our party had haggis as a main course and... More

Great spot for a stop off. Fresh muscles were delicious. Child and dog friendly, with a nice walk along the beach and through the woods after.

On recommendation we managed to book a table here last minute. Delighted we could be fitted in. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and the food tasted great - we were all happy with our meals. Large portions too! There was a great atmosphere in the dining room. We were sat next to, and kept warm by, the fire. Many other... More

Stopped here for a pint and a meal on the way back into Inverness and thought it was by far the nicest location and establishment I saw / stopped at in the wider-Inverness region. Coming from London, I didnt think that the food or drink was unfairly priced and the bar staff were friendly. Would be a wonderful spot during... More
