Built in the mid 1700s, The Castle Tavern has kept its traditional feel and charm from centuries past.
Not only does it overlook the River Ness, the Tavern sits across from Inverness Castle and the start/finish of the Great Glen Way trail. You can enjoy some of the best views Inverness has to offer.
The property boasts a bar, a restaurant and a beer garden – food and beverages can be enjoyed across all locations.
Famous for its warm and friendly hospitality, The Castle Tavern is a much-loved place to visit for locals and tourists alike, many returning year after year to soak up the traditional atmosphere and chilled vibes.
There's a real ale bar with a variety of drinks available with a restaurant serving freshly prepared food made from the best locally sourced ingredients. Look out for 'Malt of the Month', sample one of their ever-changing real ales or relax with a glass of wine from the recommended list.
The cosy first floor restaurant can seat up to 32 diners during a service and can be hired as a venue to fit up to 40 people for private functions.
Make sure to try their most ordered item on the menu, Whisky Haggis: haggis accompanied with mashed neeps and tatties, served with whisky sauce and oatcake. If you are a lover of fresh and organic mussels, it is highly recommended to order the steamed west coast mussels in white wine and garlic, finished with cream and parsley (with a side of fresh bread to enjoy 'till the last drop). These are just some of the tantalising items on offer. In addition, daily food specials are also available.
A reasonably priced menu, freshly cooked food, an impressive collection of beers, wines and spirits with fantastic views means a visit to this rare gem is not to be missed. Once you have paid your first visit you'll find the lure of this award-winning bar and restaurant calling you back again and again.
