Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a table before hand which I recommend doing as it can get quite busy. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. We have eaten at a few places in Inverness and the food is better here.

We had been informed by a local in another village that this pub was only one in town now that The Glen Affric Hotel was knocked down(horrified to hear this since we used to frequent it’s pub/restaurant when we came up for holidays at Shenval)...We decided to go in for a drink on our way back from Loch Affric on our bikes one evening & were pleasantly surprised by how nice the owner was behind the bar…..so much so that drinks turned into dinner and what a yummy meal it was…..all home-cooked & bill not too expensive at end of night. Fabulous old pics on pub walls of the dam builders from 1949(which is how Cannich town came about to house them all)& the shinty teams of old inc the local chap who invented this dangerous but great game!More

Absolutely the worst service I’ve ever had. If you’re not eating you’re not drinking. We visited for a week and on the second night at 8:30 Mr personality the suspected owner replied to our request for a 3rd drink with sorry lad you’re the only...2 in we’re closing. ‘Lad’ I’m 57. I wouldn’t give them another penny of my cash if I was dying of dehydration. In short abysmal service in a dump of a pub.More

Read the reviews on TA for this establishment, all we can say is we are glad we ignored the low reviews. Beer choice was excellent and well kept, the food was first class as were the young waiting team and the guy behind the bar....Give it a try with an open mind, you will not be disappointedMore

The perfect place to enjoy drinks and an evening meal. The setting is tranquil and relaxed. The hosts were very friendly and made us and our two Cocker Spaniels feel so welcome.

I don’t often leave reviews, but I think there is a need for some balance. We’ve had drinks and a meal at the Slaters Arms over two nights. Guess what? No issues whatsoever. Staff were friendly and even gave us tips on where to walk...and the local sights. Please be kind with your reviews. The hospitality industry has had an incredibly challenging time and the people serving you, are doing their best. Well done to the team at the Slaters Arms and thanks for the craic. Oh, by the way, the steak was fantastic 🥩👍!More

I’m a regular visitor to Cannich as I have a caravan based there. Every time I visit I always have the pleasure of spending time in the Slaters Arms. The owners Scott and Angela are fantastic hosts and take time to talk to you and...especially your dog if you have one ! The beer selection is first class as they have many Glen Affric craft ales. We have had a few meals recently and they were amazing. Starters and mains tasty home cooked food. Can recommend the Chilli dip starter and Korean rice dish. So if you are in the area pay a visit. 👍More

Had a fabulous meal here while on holiday with friends. The food is fantastic and real value for money. Had a wonderful evening sitting out on the decking. Dog friendly and the owners and staff were so welcoming and kind. If you are in Cannich...then it is a must to visit. Sirloin steak and pepper corn sauce was amazing.More

We walked into the Slaters Arms at about 7pm and were met with a very rude manager. He told us we wouldn't eat before half an hour. We said with a smile that would be fine. We'd have a glass of wine. He didn't offer...to serve us. He just said it would be another hour. We said fine. We'll have a drink please. He just ignored us. The restaurant was half full, if that. He was very rude and unwelcoming. I would not recommend. Go to Tomich Hotel. Good food. Very welcomingMore

Strange atmosphere, staff very stuck in their own ways and unable to adjust. I was met with a very frosty welcoming as I hadn’t booked a table which made me feel quite awkward, even though the place was empty. Food wasn’t bad to be fair....Just a few people skills in order.More

Classic (in) hospitality. Big sign on door saying no use of toilets for non customers. I asked if I could use the loos if I paid and was told yes. So I went to order a drink at the bar and was then told no...card transactions under £10. Ten pounds to spend a penny seemed a bit steep...I'm sure they are lovely people really when you get to know them.More

Terrible service, took ages for anyone to come and seat us. There seems to be more dogs than patrons in the place, a small herd of dogs can be seen playfighting whilst you "enjoy" your dinner. Told the waitress that my dinner was of a...poor standard and she "fair enough". She then left us and we were not even told how to pay for our meal , told the person taking the money that I wouldn't have fed that to my dog but I guess he had selective hearing. AVOID!More
