I visited here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. From what I had heard I wasn't expecting very much but was more than pleasantly surprised! The menu was lovely - plenty choice for every kind of taste. The food itself was of high quality - we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals! For value for money and choice in a lovely... More

I had the prawn and lobster starter followed by fish and chips. The starter was fantastic, I have to say Fish was a little slimy but the chips and mushy peas were excellent. And two courses for £14 I think is excellent value. Large menu, and good range of foods. Best of all nothing served on a wooden board, roof... More

Always friendly service and well presented pub-type food. A great place to catch up with friends over lunch or dinner as there's room to park and the food is consistently reasonable. Real open fire is a bonus too.

SnowgooseInverness, General Manager at The Snow Goose, responded to this review

Hi there, I am sorry to read of the problems with your visit. I agree you should have been made aware of unavailable items before ordering and it does sound as though the main courses were below the standard we would expect. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us at snowgooseinverness@vintageinn.co.uk regards Mike More

Dined alone here on a cold Feb early evening and was nicely warmed by the log fire burning close to my table. I ordered the fish and chips from the menu and my order was taken by a very nice friendly waitress. The meal itself was superb and definitely an improvement since my last visit, so keep up the good... More

Most of the main meals were 'off' early Sunday evening. Ordered fish & chips and crispy duck salad.. a few pieces of duck sat amongst soaking wet lettuce and hollowed out pieces of cucumber! Amazed that a chef would send this out as a main meal..

This has been difficult in recent weeks due to supplier problems but we are working hard to resolve these issues. I am sorry the duck salad was clearly below standard. I hope the fact this... More

I've been coming here for many years and it just gets better each time . The food is amazing and always varied. I don't know how the chef does it so nicely presented. We never are disappointed and always choose this place rather than try somewhere new as we know we'll get good service and food . It's always clean... More

This is an attractive pub, and the decor, layout and menu all look very nice. Whilst not poor, the food is at best, pretty average. The rustic bread i had with my pate was very dry, and the hunters chicken was passable, although the bacon was a bit fatty, and the portions could have been bigger. Had a few wi-fi... More
