We really enjoyed our meal here. Its a lovely old building in a beautiful setting on the shores of Loch Ness. Staff very friendly too. I'd class the food as good pub grub. I certainly had no complaints and would very happily return. Husband had fish and chips - no bones and a good portion of homemade chips. We both... More

Went for a family meal , glad we booked ahead as with it being a nice day the pub was packed , fantastic meal and couldn't fault the food , service could have been a little better but considering how busy they were nothing to moan about , fantastic setting looking out over the Loch

We didn't actually go into the pub/ restaurant but we spent the early evening on the beach section next to the Loch having a family bbq. There were people swimming in the Loch, walking and having quality family time or fun with friends. The restaurant is very accommodating and you are allowed to park in their car park and use...

Very nice dinner in a lovely location on the banks of loch Lomond. Good value and nice size portions. Would recommend to all visiting Inverness as a nice spot out of town.

We had really looked forward to visiting here and our meal was delicious. However, we did not rate the service very highly. When our drinks arrived, the poor waiter spilt almost a whole pint of beer over me. It was a complete accident and accidents do happen. He apologised and came back later to say sorry again. I have no... More

Took ages to get our table even though we booked we waited 40 mins to get shown to our table, they got our drinks order wrong twice,then food... More

Went and sat outside in the sunshine by the loch, great place to sit and enjoy some drinks, had the burger and the other half had the pork belly starter. Both were very tasty, the Bailey's crème brulé was a good sharing size portion which was a surprise. Place is well located, car park can be a bit full and... More

Only a few minutes drive from Inverness is the village of Dores, home of the Dores Inn right on the shores of Loch Ness with views to die for. It's a traditional type of place, very cosy and comfortable with a lovely atmosphere. You can also sit outside if the weather permits and enjoy the stunning views. They have a... More
