Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff upon our arrival. Rooms are small as was the in closet bathroom but to be expected in older buildings. I'd say it is a happily quirky building. Dinner was fabulous and the dining room just beautiful. Breakfast in the pub was fixed to order and scrumptious. The place is for sale we found out but...

Our room was perfectly alright, though the coffee machine did not work and the ensuite was tiny. However the public areas are in dire need of refurbishment and on our particular night, the kitchen let the place down badly.

Went here for a meal. Have a dog so were shown to the bar. Dark, dingy and windows covered with tartan cloth. No daylight but even that didn't hide the cobwebs! Had steak and ale pie at a cost of £16. No veg, just pie and 'MacDonald's' style chips. Waited well over an hour. Pie was cold and the crisp...

OMG, I thought I'd stepped back nearly 40 years !!! When we stepped inside the place was almost pitch dark. It took us a few minutes to adjust and maybe we should've left then. Never judge a book etc, etc, so we ordered food which when eventually arrived was decidedly average. Can't comment on the drink as I was driving....

Jim really knows his wines, spirits and ales and Anne's food is brilliant. It's also dog friendly so ideal for a food and drink loving couple and their dog. The music and quiz nights along with the normal banter make the bar a great place too.

Went as a family with 2 young kids (3 and 6) for dinner. This place has great character and the food was great. The owners clearly have a passion for what they do and this shines through in the menu and the amazing drinks selection. This is a whisky and beer paradise. I enjoyed a few cask real ales during...

A very charming rooms, with a great bar. Jim Anderson has hand picked over 200 Scotch whisky's of which he can tell you all the details of each. Great local Ales and many bottled beers. Great food with a Scottish flare. Off the beaten track but worth the stop.

Second visit this time with my two brothers and a friend of old, we all really enjoyed the whole experience with great food and beer and even had 3 non whisky drinkers drinking whisky. We visited Glen Ore distillery played golf and watched rugby as well as getting in a walk at Loch Ness and a pub crawl around Inverness,...

Amazing choice of food and beer which were so great we visited 2 nights in a row and loved the warm welcome. The place is full of character and suits those that appreciate something a bit different. The owner even welcomed our "needle nose" greyhound in the bar with a dog biscuit. Fabulous place.

Haven't visited The Anderson for a little while but glad we did! Starters - cream of scallop soup with a black pudding fritter which was just amazing and Welsh rarebit with smoked haddock bon bons, equally as lovely. Mains were duck breast in a raspberry sauce & chicken, ham & mushroom pie. Best most flavourful meal we've had in ages....
