Inverness is jam-packed with bars, restaurants, and eateries these days. Visitors and locals alike are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in the city no matter the time of year. One of the great things about being in the taxi industry is that we get to hear the low-down from our customers at Inverness Taxis about where they’ve been and where they’ve had a great experience. So, seeing as we were raised right and we were taught that ‘sharing is caring’, we thought we’d share the buzz about some of the places people are talking about.
- Table Manors – This restaurant might be tucked away in Kirkhill, but the secret is out about its great food and terrific surroundings. Table Manors is set on Achnagairn Estate which is well known for its luxury accommodation as well as being a very popular choice for weddings. The opulent setting is just one of the reasons to visit Table Manors, but the food on the table is just as much a draw as the surroundings. Visit Inverness Loch Ness even named it their ‘Dining Recommendation of the Month’ for December 2019, describing at as a “special dining experience, and they were recently nominated in the category of “Best Fine Dining Experience” for the Scottish Business Awards. The estate is only 20 minutes out of Inverness, so it’s well worth a jaunt out to the estate for dinner and maybe even a stay in one of their beautiful rooms.
- Café One – This wine bar and restaurant has been serving the Inverness community for many years now and its popularity doesn’t look to be fading any time soon. Café One prides itself on moving with the times and providing a unique dining experience where they source local ingredients, some of which are even grown on a croft owned by the restaurant, now that’s local! Café One is a great eatery right in the middle of the city centre, good enough to spend all night there sampling its menu and extensive drinks list, but also close enough to other venues in the city centre like Eden Court to be able to have an early dinner before you see a show or hit the town.
- R&B’s – Known locally as Inverness’s premier karaoke bar, R&B’s is actually far more than simply a place to bash out a Bon Jovi number. Since opening, the bar and restaurant has been providing proper food and bar prices. Their locally sourced seafood and distinctive Haggis Lasagne has the town talking and with its regular karaoke nights, you could easily settle in there for dinner, drinks, and then treat everyone to your version of “Love Shack” that you’ve secretly been working on in the garage when no-one is home. Also, the Inverness Taxi office is directly opposite R&B’s, so pop in when your done and we’ll get you home!
