We went here a couple of years ago after someone told us it was a great place however our experience wasn't great at all. Everyone has their own tastes etc i know that, but it definitely wasn't for us. I wouldn't go back. I've attached a few photos of the upstairs area.

We ate here on a stopover in Inverness looking for some Scottish food, we were recommended to go here from a local. We had the haggis and the lamb fillet, both meals tasted great.

well we wanted to find some place doing live music and we were not disappointed when we visited here. The place was rammed, and I could understand why.

Had fish and chips and a quick spin on the dance floor. A great party atmosphere in the mid afternoon. Reasonably priced drinks, although the friendly locals told me they charge tourists extra. We left after we found out. poor show

Bar was very quiet as we off to the Eden Court afterwards. Food was very good. Had the venison burger which I enjoyed but I found it very sweet to taste. Much preferred my wife's plain burger. That said fast efficient service.

This pub is a favourite to us locals and popular amongst visitors. Traditional Ceilidh music downstairs with the chance for a dance, and a more trendy local band upstairs. All age and very friendly atmosphere. Don't miss a visit here if you are in Inverness.

We were in on Saturday past for a couple of drinks. Really liked the place, nice relaxed atmosphere, the food looked good and staff were good. It was getting quite busy as one of the best groups that play in and around Inverness were on that night. They are Schehallion - catch then sometime they are brilliant.

Good pint of real ale and an interesting venue which features music often. Good as part of a bar crawl too!

Googled music venues in Inverness for somewhere to take my partner for his birthday and this wee gem of a place came highly recommended. Nothing fancy with casual being the dress code, much to our pleasure, great atmosphere and even better live scottish music. Would definitely recommend here. We were in on a wed night and it was busy.
