My family & I enjoyed a great evening once again at this lovely place right next to the River Ness.. The food is always reliably very good & excellent value, the staff polite & attentive also we enjoyed great live music from Schiehallion. Easy to park for free & very central .A really great traditional venue, thank you.

Having seen the reviews when on holiday in Inverness, we decided to give this a try. The menu is more adventurous than the cooking, but the prices reflect that. My daughter had the Highland Mixed Grill which she said was very good, I had the Pheasant Breast Wrapped in Parma Ham which was ok, the sauce was a little glutinous, while my wife's tuna steak was fairly well-cooked.
Good quality pub fare and, as I said, the prices reflect that. Their winelist could be a bit more adventurous.

The menu was 5 star quality food. Yes, there was bar food but there was also dishes like what I had...Shetland Salmon. One of the others in the party chose Fish and Chips which she said tasted great. She likes cocktail sauce with her fish and since they don't offer such, the waitress brought her horseradish and red sauce to make her own.

The wine list was also great.

After dinner we hung out and tried Flights of Whiskey which are samplings of 3 whiskeys lined up.

The pub was a great spot to unwind after a busy day offering great food and a well stocked bar.

Went in for sunday lunch and ordered roast beef, the food was served twenty minutes later piecemeal. It was an oval plate with two small slices of meat, three very small roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and gravy which filled the plate. The very average veg came separately.
If it tasted good that would be fine, however, the gravy was clearly just Bisto, or similar, the meat was pretty tasteless as was the Yorkie - tasted like the frozen ones, and the veg, just average.
They will need to do better to keep the custom on Sundays and serve fresh, not frozen, food and gravy properly made. We would have been better off at Dobbie's, and that is saying something!

We have been for bar meals several times and found overall that standards seem to be slipping on many levels.

This is a nice local restaurant in the city center in Inverness. It was close to my hotel. It has good seafood options and a good whiskey selection. My waitress was excellent. She was very courteous and prompt. The food prices were reasonable. This restaurant is definitely worth checking out.
