Went there in February while visiting Inverness. Got there about 8pm so nice and quiet (weekday night). 3 people started playing their instruments (accordion, guitar etc) and the atmosphere in the room changed from cosy quiet to cosy foot tapping enjoyment (still able to hear each other chat as the music played). We were only in for a couple and... More

This is a Pub not a Resraurant and a bit of a dump of one, that needs to be full it give it some atmosphere, the menu was sparse and almost take it or leave it, I tried the haggis, potato and neeps, awfull had all the taste cooked out of it, Go somewhere else.

We went on the Friday and Saturday night of our weekend trip and different bands playing each night and both thoroughly enjoyable. Only problem is getting a seat as extremely busy. The drink is quite expensive but doesn't put people of as they come to see the live bands. Had a drink spilt by dancers and it was replaced by... More

Stopped at Hootananny for dinner with my partner on a Saturday Evening. Celtic Music, wooden interior and Black Isle pints, not only that the customers were a friendly mixture of Locals and visitors and the staff was amazingly nice and friendly. On with the food, we went for the Cullen Skink to share (very good, it's smoked haddock soup by... More

I read so many great reviews about this.... but was not impressed. Went there one night, and there was a one man band... who was not good at all. We left and went to another pub for drinks.
