Good food, good beer and great staff! Would definitely stop in if you are visiting Inverness. Best pub in the city. Good location, too.

“Best pub meal in Scotland!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The staff make this hotel, excellent service, upstairs or downstairs. Menu is varied and the mussels are to die for. There is a good selection of beers on tap and a tasting plate is available. Would highly recommend, great atmosphere!

Loved the food and price in a quaint pub near the castle. Very friendly staff came and found us once a table came free and we had great meals and some lovely beers!

“A quality pub to hang out in with good food!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Spent a few days in the downtown area of Inverness last week. Had a great stay and a friend suggested to check out the Castle Tavern. I was not disappointed. It is a cozy atmosphere in the pub. Not a large seating area, but plenty comfortable. Good selection of brews and same on the menu. Has an outdoor seating area and an upstairs dining area, but with a World Cup game on...the pub was the place to watch the match. Obviously, a popular locals spot, too.
Great location looking out at Castle Inverness and if it is a nice day...sit outside in the beer garden and watch the people and traffic go by. Very relaxing view. Staff were quite nice, yet one server seemed to want to be some place else, but no matter. The location is just a short 2 minute walk to the town centre, bus station & train stations. I will stop here again if ever visiting Inverness.

“Excellent beer and people, good food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Went in because it was close to the hotel and highly rated on trip advisor and would highly recommend it! Walked in and were met by very friendly members of staff and a great mixture of locals and visitors. The selection of beers was excellent and the bar staff were very happy to talk through the differences and let you taste before you bought.
The food was good. Great selection on the menu and the starters were excellent, mains only let down by slightly soggy chips! Overall excellent pub!
