Nice pub with good atmosphere, food and drinks. Very clean and orderly venue with happy staff working in a tranquil, beautiful setting. Enjoyed a great meal followed by a stroll along the water side. Highly recommended.

The staff had a bit of a problem with my accent (black country) but I'm going to let em off with that, as most people do! Lol. Me and the other half had the chicken and the... More

We had a delicious lunch and dinner at Dores Inn. Wonderful view of Loch Ness. Easy to find. Parking available. However, this is the only real place to eat in Dores so you MUST make sure you make reservations!

Dinner for 6 of us. we found the service was slow, although staff were very pleasant. Starters were very nice, those of us who had steaks, found them to be warm rather than hot. Didn't put them back because we had waited for so long. We liked that we had the table for as long as we wanted.

On a drive around Loch Ness, we decided to stop here for a bite to eat on a recommendation from the lass at the front desk of our hotel in Inverness. The food was good. My wife opted for a soup and sandwich lunch and I went for their Monster Burger based on a server passing by with one and... More
