“Ignorant and shocking”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

I recently visited this place the foot was rubbish and the waiters well if you call arguing in front a full restaurant with a person that had a small complaint about her food coming out cold and the chips following 15minutes later ! The normal thing to do then it's a must go to place! I personally have never been so embarrassed and the tall blonde haired skinny waiter you are a joke! Ill never be back here and ill do everything I can to put other off!!!

“Great wee find”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Looking from outside it isn't much but do go over the threshold and try their food. We booked a table as recommended. Staff were lovely and really friendly. They even made up a desert for one of our party who had nut allergies. Food was amazing, really beautiful and great value. Service was quick too. Try the sticky toffee pudding- you won't regret it! Lots of great restaurants in Inverness but I found this place very cosy and great value, just excellent!

It was a busy evening, but we were still offered fantastic service and food. We stayed for the jam session and enjoyed drinks and the cozy environment! Great place and staff!

“We were ignored at the door”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We tried to go here because we had read it was a lively and popular spot with authentic Scottish food. Dropped by and waited...and waited...and waited for someone to acknowledge us or seat us or at least tell us what to do but no one came to greet us. It was busy and very noisy but servers saw us and walked right by many times. Finally we gave up and left. So much for that experience!
