We had meal here on 21/4/18 and all was tasty and wholesome as usual. This friendly restaurant provides a good range of Scottish fare including very tender meats, and lovely seafood. All home cooked in delicious sauces. There is also a selection of vegan dishes...More

Thank you so much, this review made me smile, it was just so pleasant and honest! We look forward to welcoming you back. We ARE a LOCAL restaurant which can be somewhat overlooked when situated by a major tourist attraction, but we were here well...More

Had a good lunch here, but this is several miles south of Inverness on the way to Loch Ness, how is it being tagged as one of the top restaurants in Inverness when it is NOT in Inverness??More

Thank you ARealHighlander for your observations, we are indeed 4 miles from Inverness City Centre, however please note our postal address is IV3 and we are IN the Inverness area, From a TripAdvisor prospective they really are unable to place us anywhere else but Inverness....More

Visited this place with family of 4 having seen Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. It was quirky in the best possible sense. Family run, Scottish through and through and obviously a regular for locals and tourists alike. Seafood and meat dishes alike...More

Another excellent lunch, braised Aberdeen Angus beef was exceptional, as usual the veggies were excellent, service was great again and we even ventured to buy a whisky barrel picture frame, great food, great service and excellent value for money.

Thank you Andrew for your kind review. Aren't the Whisky barrel picture frames fantastic - Don't forget to go on their website to see which distillery it came from (Just enter the number on the back of the frame!)

Always get great food here and big portions. Service is great. It's bring your own bottle which we like. Highly recommend.

Don't miss out on a delicious, tasty, freshly made meal at the Oakwood. It's bring your own bottle too with no corkage charge! A warm welcome, a varied menu and so much choice for the gluten free diner. Highly recommend a night out here.

Yet another fantastic meal, what is not to like- the food is fantastic, with quality ingredients sourced locally and very reasonably priced. Gabby, Gus and Jason make you so so welcome, it is just my favourite place to go. I can’t believe people would complain...More

Yes, they have plenty of gluten free dishes. My daughter is coeliac so we have to pay particular attention to this in restaurants. She was delighted with the choices on the menu and the specials board.
