We ate here on our 1-night stay in Inverness, at the recommendation of a friend. Food was basic pub-grub but very good, and the live music and relaxed atmosphere were fun. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good evening!

I visited this bar last week and the staff were so rude. The place needs a deep clean cause its filthy and is definately a health hazzard. How it is still allowed to remain open is beyond me.
