A cracking wee bar, good beer, very good service and good food. I genuinely didn't expect the food to be as good as it was. Very pleased. The staff were very friendly and very attentive despite the bar being full to its seating capacity.

The food comes in generous portions; I tried the buffalo chicken wings and besides the large size, they were delicious, tender and spiced perfectly. They bring also some warm water and lemon to clean the hands afterwards; very functional. I also tried the ale and local steak pie and I could totally taste the ale in the tender meat. I... More

I had a starter and a main here and both were excellent. It's not the cheapest place but it's worth what you pay for. The place is unpretentious and you could easily eat there alone. Service was prompt and friendly as well.

The first thing that stands out about this restaurant was that even though they offer some very good food from an adult standpoint, they also have a kids menu and made us feel welcome in a city that we discovered is not very friendly to those traveling with children. I had several starters as my meal and you can tell... More

I ate here last week and the food was fantastic. Had buffalo wings to start which had a cheeky kick to them. Big juicy burger for main course and by the end I could eat no more. Tad more expensive than some places near by but the added quality makes it worth every penny. Great service and a nice friendly... More

Here on a Saturday night. The staff were nice and the menu was good. I cannot criticise the service or the price of food and wine. The tapas plate was a great idea but it was slightly cold - especially the pork belly. It was very busy so it was our own fault not to complain. I would love to... More

I waked around Inverness old town for a few hours and saw this place. Very inviting from the outside, I ordered the pork and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Attention to detail is not what you would normally expect from pub food. Well done to the chef and the staff a friendly. The food was really well presented and again not... More

We visit here on a regular basis when in town. Good lunchtime menu at good prices. Décor and toilets could be better.
