“Awful service.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Upon entering the premises we were met by a young waitress who looked like she had just found out that Nessie, Santa and the tooth fairy are not real. This did not change for the remainder of the service. The food was very average and having went for the special main I was very disappointed in the level of food. Upon finishing the meal the next task was to get the bill. This was difficult as we now had a waiter who was doing his best to avoid any eye contact whatsoever and a new waitress who's task at this point was to light candles on a tray. This had her completely hypnotised and working at a tenth of the speed of a normal human being. The bill finally arrived and I personally thought it was expense for what we'd ordered. Won't return here in a hurry. Give them time to light the candles.

“Beautiful meal”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We had been told to visit the Loch Ness inn and weren't disappointed! I had scallops to start and the lamb as a main and both were cooked to absolute perfection. Both scallops and lamb rump can be overdone so easily but the chef got it spot on. They also left the roe on the scallops which is my favourite part! My boyfriend had the haggis and then the ribs which he thoroughly enjoyed, we would love to know what goes in the BBQ sauce! We had all of this and a bottle of wine for under £60. Our waitresses were both lovely as well. Just fantastic, cuisine which we did not expect to come across in a tiny village in Scotland. Compliments to the chef.

Appleby bay prawns; where can you find them if you are a sassenach. Lovely old pub. Food good, good beer, nice chaser.

“Good food and beers in warm surroundings with great service”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The restaurant here has somewhat minimalist decor that is out of keeping with the region, but the large wood stove keeps things warm and atmospheric. The food is local, of very good quality overall and nicely presented, while the staff are wonderful. One of your top choices for a posh night out in Drumnadrochit.

Eating in the pub part is altogether more down to earth, with a toasted cheese and haggis ciabatta to die for. The excellent Loch Ness beers made in the village are served both in the restaurant and bar and well worth trying. Again and again.

“Warm, friendly, helpful staff and amazing food”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Turned up late without a reservation but nothing was an issue or too much hassle. We where only going to stay for one night, but food was so good and the accommodation superseded anything we could have expected we stayed for another night. Staff where very helpful about things to do nearby and only to happy to discuss options and even contact places on our behalf to check opening times and availability of sessions, e.g horse riding.
