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.

We arrived at the restaurant for our 7.30pm booking and were seated at a table nearest to the kitchen / toilets. I could see that there was a spare table for two at the back end of the restaurant, which was a much nicer position....I asked if we could have that table and was told we couldn't as they were fully booked and needed to move the tables together. Clearly this wasn't the case as there wasn't enough space to put another table in. Another table for two came free within a few minutes of us sitting down and I asked if we could have that one, which got the same reply. We were the last people to be seated that night and the second from last to leave, at 8.15pm. People came in after us and were turned away as they were fully booked yet there were several empty tables that never got filled and we overheard the waitress telling a customer that they had no one else in that night. We confronted the waitress when we asked for the bill as to why she wouldn't let us have a better table when clearly there was no- one else in and was told that they needed to move them for the next day. Absolute rubbish they just didnt want to oblige us! We only had a main course as we weren't very happy at being lied to and treated like idiots. The food was fine but nothing inspiring and the chicken was overcooked. There is no atmosphere in this restaurant and clearly no passion. It is dated and traditional and there are far more interesting places in Inverness to go to. Sorry Urquharts, you need to up your game to get our vote. Very disappointing!More

Great tasting food, super service, reasonable prices, nice place. The haggis was very good, fish and chips with peas was super too. I am planning to return.

Must have reservation to get a table. Inverness is very busy with tourists. The food was good—typical pub fare. Burger with haggis, fish and chips. Soup. Tasty and nicely prepared and presented. Limited cocktail menu, basic wine list. Service was disjointed. Servers don’t appear to...be assigned a particular table. Seems to be short-staffed. Had to wave down a fast moving server to request a cocktail. The room was quiet, amenable to conversation.More

Shocking service, couldn’t serve a basic starter after waiting for 45 minutes. Someone across from us finished a main and dessert in the time we were waiting. Last time I visit here.

We were up in Inverness for a days days break and phoned and managed to get a table for dinner. Lovely highland welcome by staff . The menu catered for all tastes with a great selection to choose from . My wife chose Scampi and...I ordered Stroganoff both were excellent in taste and presentation . We shared a homemade strawberry tart which was a delight to savour. Great value for money. Well worth a visit you will not be disappointed.More

Walk up the stairs to be amazed by excellent food and service. The mushroom starter was excellent. The fish pie was amazing and the curry chicken delightful. Scrumptious deserts top offed a great dining experience. Service was great and friendly.

Was there on Sunday evening, starters, main course and desserts were absolutely first class, service was polite and timely. Wine was reasonably priced, as was the meal. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Inverness.

Had a beautiful meal in Urquharts last night. The staff were lovely and our meal was delicious. My chicken with Haggis and whiskey sauce was excellent, as was the fabulous Malteser cheesecake OMG! Lovely atmosphere too. Highly recommended.

I emailed this business first to tell them about our experience and said I wouldn't be writing a review on TripAdvisor but since they didn't even have the courtesy to reply, here I am. Never in my life have I had such awful poor quality...haggis. Every single mouthful had to but put out of my mouth onto a side plate, chewy grisly meat of the cheapest kind. My husband had a steak with was also a very cheap cut. The waitresses were like Sunday school teachers, my husband tried to crack a joke but nope, went right over her head. Absolutely no banter or craic with these waitresses. Would never go back and I'm amazed that there are so many good reviews!!!!More

Went there on Friday with my brother as we were in Inverness for the weekend. The service to start with was good and the food was excellent. We decided against pudding so I had another drink and my brother had a coffee. We were sitting...chatting and deciding if we were going to be having another drink or go back to hotel and have a drink there when the bill was put on our table which we had not asked for as though they were in a rush to get rid of us. It was only about 9 pm. We then asked for card machine and while my brother was paying the girl who I found out was called Rachel stood with her arms and legs crossed which I found very rude. I sent a email the next day to complain but the email address was Rachel....so obviously she must be the boss so I did not get a reply. Very disappointed and we certainly won't be going back.More

Had dinner here whilst visiting Inverness, and having read reviews. Food was good, but I feel somewhat over rated; felt more like "pub grub" than that of a restaurant. Probably wouldn't visit again.
