Just back from a weekend in Nairn with our dogs. Whilst there we found the Havelock bar and restaurant. We were made to feel very welcome as we're our dogs. We ate in the bar on two nights. We found the food fantastic, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. Lovely atmosphere and if we are ever back in Nairn...

Room was lovely and spacious and i had a nice sleep for a change. The food is brilliant, friendly staff and a good place to sit and have a drink with food and chill with music or TV, would happily stay here again, recommended.
