My cycling pal treated me to a magnificent pub lunch here last week. Food, beer and hospitality were all superb. Supreme landlord/landlady George and Veronica made us very welcome. This is as good as a pub gets.

The sun was shining as we passed the Castle Tavern - so nothing for it but a drink outside - first this year! Friendly service, decent wine. Bar inside was busy as the rugby was being shown on t.v. Food menu looked enticing - will have to eat here next time.

The Castle Tavern was recommended to us when staying in Inverness and it didn't disappoint. We were welcomed by friendly staff and customers as we sampled their beverages whilst watching the Rugby. Although we didn't eat, the food being served looked very appetising and it was clearly freshly prepared. A nice little tavern to rest your feet and enjoy some... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on a chilly October evening and we enjoyed true comfort food. We'd ordered a special mashed potatoes that was made with potatoes, turnips onions and bacon...yes, stick to your ribs, keep you warm bacon. Also had cheese, which I'm sure is not healthy but it was so delicious and you don't eat like... More

Really enjoyed the ambience inside, it's cosy but possible to get some privacy at tables away from the bar area. Nice service, but the range of beers, location, views, atmosphere and general interior is totally unique in Inverness so it's a go to for me if I have time.

Lovely little pub with great friendly staff. Can't do enough for you. Food is excellent and plenty of it. Sell unusual beer and kind enough to allow newcomers to sample the taste. Hope to visit again
