8 on the River

The Eight on the River restaurant offers a delicious combination of period features, stunning views and delicious cuisine. The new contemporary design fits gently with the traditional cornicing, high ceiling and large sash windows. This may compete with the picturesque view of the River Ness and Inverness Castle for your attention, but both may be forgotten once your meal is served.

Dinner: 18:00 - 21:15

Bar & Brasserie

With a relaxed atmosphere in comfortable surroundings, the only thing that could help you relax even more than our lounge is the superb views of the River Ness. You can enjoy excellent quality wines by the bottle and glass as well as Starbucks coffee. There is also a flat panel television in the lounge showing a full range of channels. Come back here to unwind after a day exploring the Highlands.
