We came to the Castle Tavern twice. It was recommended by our B&B host and within walking distance from our lodging. We came in the evening and it was difficult to get a seat...the tavern is quite popular with a lively, good-natured crowd. Families could be seen at the tables outside. We got a small table inside.

Friendly little bar and upstairs restaurant in the shadow of Inverness Castle. The staff were super friendly and gave us plenty of time to sit, relax and enjoy our meal and our conversation. The food was hot, simple and delicious.

We stumbled into this little pub on a cold evening! The food was simple, but fabulous with Scottish dishes that warmed the body and soul! The staff are friendly and welcoming! If you looking for low key but warm and welcoming, this pub fits the bill, with the amazing benefit of an unimpeded view of the castle!
