A smallish entrance to this bar/restaurant that can be easily missed. It's a comfortable, friendly and non pretentious place which has a bigger dining area at the back than expected. I like that you can see through the service hatch into the kitchen to see your food cooked. The choice of cask beers is limited but enjoyable. The menu is... More

This is our first time in Inverness and after reading lots of reviews we decided to book dinner for the evening, as we only decided to book dinner two days before our trip we struggled to book a table. We eventually booked a table at this lovely restaurant and so glad we did as they were turning people away! I... More

They had a good selection of gins, including Rock Rose. The atmosphere is very cosy and used by many locals. The service was good and quick.

The restaurant is conviently located in the city centre and is only a short walk to the rest of the city night life if you want to go... More

Was here a couple of weeks ago for a lunch. Had the Cajun chicken burger and it was absolutely top notch 👌 highly recommend the steak also. We were also there in Nov and Dec for large group birthday meals. Despite being a large group, all with different steaks differently cooked they were all superb. Staff are always extremely friendly... More

We're in Number 27 on Friday night before a show at Eden Court. There were 6 of us. We had a really tasty meal, professionally served. Had a limited time before our show and were still able to have a delicious dessert! Look forward to our next visit.

Dinner for a party of 7 on a cold October night. Because a bar fronts the restaurant, it can be a bit noisy. But this is a minor detail because the service is friendly and food quite tasty, all this for a very reasonable price.

Had dinner there recently with two other couples. Was pleasantly surprised. Wasn't expecting much to be honest as have eaten there before and was of a very low standard. This time however everyone loved their food , good portions and lovely staff. Will be back for sure. Don't know if under new management but something had changed. Nicer than a... More

We visited on a Saturday night. It was busy but there aren't a lot of covers so book early. Food and service was great. Good value for money also.
