Went in on a wet Saturday and found a warm welcome - a real roasting fire, and a good lively bit of chat. There was sport on the tv and good lively football banter - mostly around the Ross County score (won 2-1). Jamie and Jackie the owners were there and so a good welcome all round. Will be back!

Camping in Fortrose and came across great local pub, locals very friendly. Staff also great fun, but barmaid at night was always outside for a gag and not once did she wash her hands when she came back in. Spoiled the experience for us.

Bar maid was fantastic who made us feel very welcome. Without a doubt the best pub I've visited for many years! If you are passing pop in for a drink... More

If you are in the fortrose area, you must make time to visit the Union tavern. The locals make you feel so welcome and the bar staff are fantastic. Best pub around and we kept going back during our holiday. Best cheese toasties around! 😃

I was in Fortrose for the weekend visiting family and was recommended to go for a drink in the Union Tavern. Could not have been a better experience. The locals and regulars were as friendly as it gets, happy to chat and make you feel welcome. Those who worked there couldn't have done the place a higher service. They were... More
