“Excellent food - a fantastic find”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

We visited here recently just as the new menu was introduced. We'd heard good things from friends who've been before and weren't disappointed. The food was fresh and tasty, not fussy, just really well done. There was a good variety on the menu and the staff were friendly and attentive. The pub is in a great location too. Will definetely be going back next time we're in the area.

“Best restaurant i've been to in a long time”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

What an amazing place!! Went to the Dores Inn with a group of friends the night before we went to Applecross and i can honestly say it was one of the best meals i've ever had. We had a big plate of the scallops, black pudding and the bread and olives to start and i could write a raving review on that alone. The main courses were of the same great quality. One of the best things about this restaurant apart from the gorgeous setting and tasty is the superb service. All the staff made us feel so welcome. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who visits Inverness. If only there was a Dores Inn down in Ayrshire!

“Superb”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

Real ale was good, then we decided to stay for a meal ~ this was about 5.30 on Thursday and we were just in time... you really do need to book, they turned loads away as we were sitting.

Superb meal with good service: Macaroni Cheese excellent and the Vanilla Creme Brulee was delish. Everything that went past looked really good.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 7, 2010

Lovely litle Pub on the banks of Loch Ness. we were tired from a long day of driving when we showed up to see the beautiful view from the porch of htis pub. They had excellent fish and Chips and a lovely selection of cheeses and breads that are all local grown. Sunset on the Loch on a bright an dsunny day and good food... what more could you as for. If youa re in the ares, I highly recommend you eating here.

“Love eating out, this was probably the best!!!!!”
Reviewed July 6, 2010

We were staying in Aviemore for the weekend and decided to get lost for a few hours....... but we ended up in this wee place which was really wonderful, I can't rave enough about it. The food was fresh the Banoffee Pie was amazing and the staff were lovely, well done!!!! I am a wee tad fussy but If I lived near here I woudl be spending my weekends eating here. After our meal we walked along the beach and in the bushes there is a swing park for the kids!!! FAB fab you must go, if you like fresh homecooked food at a reasonable price which is Quality then this is your place to go.

Enjoy!!!!
