Theres some nice beers here, nice ambient atmosphere downstairs with candles on tables then at 9pm a music session started, playing traditional scottish music. I went upstairs and there was another few musicians, very entertaining evening.

The best place to go in Scotland. If you want to know the highlands walk the hills then finish your day with a good whisky in a real Scottish highlands pub. This is the best place.

We enjoyed two courses and drinks in this lively pub. The food was not the highlight of the evening and if this was the sole purpose of our visit I could not have awarded more than three stars. Our dishes were not exciting but were acceptable. My husband enjoyed the local ales on offer and we both appreciated the musicians... More

Wow! This was a wonderful experience. The musicians were in their upper teens to lower twenties (I'm guessing). And they were amazing! I wish we had stayed longer!

If you want to hear music when having an evening drink in Inverness then this is the place. There is a reasonable selection of draught beers. The main reason people frequent this bar is for the music. It's a good place to spend a couple of hours of an evening.

We had a lovely meal and the best starter that I have ever had - West coast scallops and Lewis haggis but I had 2 drinks and both came in dirty glasses. I had an Irn Bru from a can and the glass had bits of lemon on it, Not good and a shame as I loved the food.

Very busy friday night but it was worth pushing in. Very busy at the bar but people were so polite & made way to let us get drinks. We didnt visit the venue upstairs as the music & dancing downstairs was good scottish music being payed by 3 young lads, it was jumping! It was so entertaining watching everyone dancing,... More

Food was delicious, and the service was great. I stopped in on a Sunday night and was able to catch a little of a ceilidh, which was awesome. It's got a great, relaxed atmosphere, and I enjoyed it even more this time than when I was here 9 years ago.
