Visited today. Food was good . However was disappointed to learn that there is no weekly quiz as of tonight . As it was always popular and busy we struggle to understand why management has taken that decision. Also no Facebook page now !!!More

We reserved a table in the bar area as we had a dog with us. The food was lovely especially the black and white pudding starter. Reasonable prices and welcoming atmosphere. Will be back anytime we visit Inverness.

Description
THE CLACHNAHARRY INN a great 'craic' pub with emphasis on being friendly. The 'Clach' is an institution in the local area & serves 4 cask ales alongside other draught beers, lagers and ciders. It’s an informal pub that delivers highland hospitality & great food. What's better is that we love what we do! We are also a dog friendly pub & dogs are welcome in our bar & beer garden while our restaurant is dog free. The dugs even have their own biscuit barrel and water bowls. A Take-Away Menu is available 7 days a week, Simply pop in & have a drink while you wait for your freshly cooked meal, or phone in advance & pick it up on your way past. Awarded Inverness area Pub of the Year in 2017 & now Runner up Pub of the Year Highlands and Islands 2018 by CAMRA accolades we are proud of. New owners took over in Dec 2017 & are striving to provide what customers want. Subtle decor in the restaurant adds to the dining experience & the bar has added many fine Malts & BT Sport to enjoy, Come on in.
