Pub and car park were very busy. Food was good but quite expensive as the pub is right by loch Ness. Staff were friendly and efficient.

The lunch was good quality and quantity but lacked anything special. On the plus side the seats by the open fire were very coy and the staff were friendly.

We used their free pick up service to get to the inn- the driver was polite and prompt. The scenery is amazing, the inn itself is cozy and warm. And the macaroni and cheese is incredible- seriously. For anyone visiting Inverness, the Dores Inn has to be on your list- even if its just for a coffee and a stroll... More

Arrived here late afternoon and was delighted to see they did all day food even out of season. Good sized portions, I had the haggis, needs and tattles. Well kept real ale and dog friendly in the bar. Friendly and welcoming

This is my second visit here. On my first visit I tried Haggis for the first time (many years ago) and remembered it being amazing. This time it was equally as good although the whiskey sauce let it down a bit. Located on the shore of Loch Ness, we took the dogs for a scenic walk after. Highly recommend, the... More
