About
THE CLACHNAHARRY INN a great 'craic' pub with emphasis on being friendly. The 'Clach' is an institution in the local area & serves 4 cask ales alongside other draught beers, lagers and ciders. It’s an old informal pub that delivers highland hospitality & great food. What's better is that we love what we do! We are also a dog friendly pub & dogs are welcome in our bar & beer garden while our restaurant is dog free. The dugs even have their own biscuit barrel and water bowls. A Take-Away Menu is available 7 days a week, Simply pop in & have a drink while you wait for your freshly cooked meal, or phone in advance & pick it up on your way past. Awarded Inverness area Pub of the Year in 2017 & now
