Very polite staff, pleasant environment but baked potatoes microwaved to mush and one was rotten and had to be sent back. Pity

Most restaurants are all booked up in advance. I ate here last week and the food was good as well as the service. I am just not into the whole ordering at the bar thing.

It appeared that the bartenders really did not like their jobs nor the customers, and certainly did not want to provide service to customers. I saw several patrons actually walk out. They took forever and appeared to cherry-pick who they wanted to service

Large spacious bar/restaurant with an open feel to it sited on the River Ness. The food was good standard pub food, a little more like home cooking. As well as the standard drinks available a range of special whiskeys was advertised.
