Visited here on Friday 12 February and was not disappointed we loved the location and the inn itself is full of character. The food was excellent as we all cleaned our plates of fish and chips scampi and my daughter had chicken burger all of which were freshly prepared and good value for money and I would also like to...

Picked up by free shuttle bus from our holiday accommodation. Varied menu to cater for all tastes. Cannot recommend the scallops and black pudding highly enough. Absolutely delicious! Very reasonably priced for both the food and drink. The staff were also very friendly and efficient. Will definitely be back.

Friendly place with nice food and great views of the loch. May be a bit pricey for some but I thought the food was good. Nice walk along the beach after with views straight down Loch Ness. Easy to find too

We used the courtesy minibus to pick us up from the outskirts of Inverness. Five of us had a great meal. Fast and efficient service and great food. Taken back by the minibus again free of charge. Definitely recommend and will use again next time we are in the area.

The Dores will always have a place in my heart. Me and my family first came to Dores 2013/14 and then again for end 2015/new year 2016. The food is out of this world, and the staff are amazingly accommodating. We cannot wait to see the Dores for the 1st time in the summer and then will be back for... More

Came here with my boyfriend for the day. Travelled to Dores from Inverness by bus as I heard that it was a good place to view the Loch from. The weather outside was awful and stormy so after having walked around in the rain and wind this place was just what we needed. We first had a pot of tea... More

What a wonderful place, I had a lovely chicken main and chocolate brownie for pudding whilst my boyfriend had salmon and a treacle tart. It was lovely, we would definitely eat and... More

Visited on 28.1.16. First thing we noticed on entry was people sitting with coats on and one lady with hat,gloves and scarf as well. The last 3 owners at least have kept a door to the restaurant which does not shut.When will one do something about this? A member of staff tried to light the fire about 2.10 p. m.... More

Ate in December with business colleagues. Meal was very bland..roast beef and trimmings but we all agreed we could make better ourselves. Nothing more than a school dinner style meal. Plain boiled veg with no seasoning and gravy like water. V.disapointed considering this used to me one of 'the' places to eat in the area. I suspect decent chefs have... More
