Went to this lovely little Inn for early evening dinner, four adults three children. The starters were freshly cooked and plentyful, in fact dinner plate size. The main menu had plenty of choice at good prices. The desserts were beautiful. The staff extremely friendly and helpful, and although the Inn is small, we had a lovely cosy evening....don't pass by,... More

Quaint local pub with delicious homemade food. The Guiness steak pie was truly a delight to eat as was the macaroni cheese but the best bit was the excellent sticky toffee pudding & icecream, yummy!!! Best to book a table as it is always busy but the staff were very accommodating in finding us a table.

We were staying in Beauly and to be honest found the pubs and restaurants there a bit 'samey' and rather bland. My wife found The Culbokie Inn advertised and as it was our last night in the Highlands decided to give it a try. Apparently the pub is under new ownership and the meat for the restaurant is supplied from... More

Me and my partner went in last sunday and i decided too have the roast beef, wow for the price you can not go wrong especially knowing its locally sourced on the owners farm! You cant get more local than that!! My partner had the scampi which was tasty aswell!! Keep up the good work!!

Visited here and had a lovely meal. We had two courses each, a soft drink and a beer. Bill came to approx £40 which is okay but a little bit steep for a country pub - might explain why it was so quiet. The lady serving was lovely and helpful and the food was delicious. We were the only people... More

Recommended by Secret Scotland, but overrated. Good but nothing special. Friendly folk and a good pint, but the food was not very interesting. Asked for a bloody rare steak and got one medium to well done.

We previously ate here regularly so when it re opened under new management were keen to try it. Food was average but we thought a bit overpriced for what we got. Service was very slow, one waitress was lovely but one was bordering on rude. Won't be returning.

We went here for a quick Sunday lunch and enjoyed the food and friendly service. The children's menu is reasonable, and we were pleased that the portion sizes were just right (our 6 and 4 year olds cleared their plates) as often children's portions are far too big and lots goes to waste! Only minor thing would be that the... More

I must admit I took a look at trip advisor first😇. So it came as no surprise to find a warm welcome and good food. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable on arrival. The food was if a good standard but over cooked scampi. All in all we had a good night and would definitely recommend it to... More

Had a lovely meal here whilst passing through on a Thursday evening. Staff were very friendly, chatted to us about our trip, where we were from, what we were doing etc. Good atmospher as pub was quite busy at the time. We both had the sweet chili chicken, very tasty.
