Hi Graeme, and thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately we had a number of very short-notice staff absences due to illness that weekend which resulted in occasional service wait times that were not to our usual high standards, so please accept our sincerest apologies. If you...More

We attended Gellions for the finishing party of the Inverness or Bust Rally. We had over 40 people attend the evening and they all had a great time. The staff were really friendly and the live music was terrific. We hope to return soon.

Dropped by Gellions on a recommendation, was not disappointed, great live group, playing good Scottish music, the place was busy, a good sign that everyone knows that it is a worthwhile venue!

We visited Gellions on several nights and we had a great time on each visit. The staff was great, good service and the place was always packed. This is a great stop and we met many fun people here.
