“Terrible service, terrible food”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We came out for a quick bite to eat whilst in Inverness shopping, we ordered our starters which came out promptly, after we finished starters we pushed the plates to one side to let the waitress(black hair quite plump) know we were finished , she served the table right next to us their food and completely ignored us even though it was obvious we were finished! She hasn't a clue how to carry plates obviously dropping another tables plate of food,and she kept walking past completely ignoring is clearing glasses etc I understand she was busy but it was a complete joke!!! after 45 minutes of waiting to be cleared turns out this place doesn't clear before the mains come out she cleared after she dumped our Mains down on our table, food was of very low standard chips over cooked onion rings as solid as a rock, meat was really moist and absolutely tasteless , waitress never even came over to see if all is well.I now know why you take our money before hand as if you didn't you wouldn't make any money! It is the second time we have been in and will never make the mistake of coming back!

A Wetherspoon hotel.In which I have eaten drank Multple times & stayed once.Beer range good & Cheap. Pub food varies from Meal (Ham egg & Chips) & a Beer for £5.99 To a "Steak house menu for maximum £15. The rooms are reasonable & relatively central with sufficient on street Parking.THEY DON'T TAKE CASH IN THE HOTEL!!

“Worse Beer In Scotland”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Met up with a few friends, bought a Tennents, complained straight away about it. It was far too gassy and tasted slightly "off".The guy tasted it saying there was nothing wrong with it, clearly he doesn't know how its meant to taste! They pourer me another, same again. So i took a Carlsberg much the same far too gassy! I came back to the bar in the morning to meet my friends who were staying there, went to the bar for some soft drinks only to hear the guy sniggering about "thats the guy who complained about the Tennents" so i told the girl serving me to tell the guy my local has been awarded best beer in Scotland, so i know what a pint is supposed to taste like. Rant over, from the "only" guy that doesn't like your Tennents!
