From traditional to contemporary, local to international, Inverness offers a rich culinary experience in riverside restaurants, bustling bistros, colourful country houses or classic castles.
Food & Drink
The Highlands of Scotland are internationally renowned for quality produce - our salmon, venison, game and seafood are welcomed throughout the world, along with our incomparable uisge beatha, the Gaelic name for whisky which translates as 'The Water of Life' which you can see being made in a selection of nearby distilleries. It doesn't stop there as we also have a good range of traditional Highland cheeses, locally brewed beers and even a local wine or two.
Inverness can provide you with a range of eating experiences – some traditional, some international but all offering the highest quality in food, drink and service. From a snack to a castle banquet, it’s all available in Inverness. You’ll find something to suite all tastes, with Indian, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Mexican and French foods on the menu as well as quality Scottish fare. The range of restaurants, bars and clubs in the city centre mean the nightlife is lively, pulling in locals and visitors from miles around.
There’s a great choice of pubs and bars ranging from continental style café bars to traditional Highland pubs, often with good music as well as a good range of international coffee houses and local tea shops and bakeries.
